This review is long overdue! We visited the Etihad Stadium on a rainy October day for my son's 8th birthday treat and we both had a fantastic time!
The tour itself was excellent value, and our tour guides (Martin and Paul) were outstanding. From the moment we arrived, the whole tour team made us feel extremely welcome, and at the end of the tour my son was presented with a goodie bag - such a thoughtful surprise.

The tour featured so many different elements including a brief film about the history of Man City, lots of 'behind the scenes' areas (including the home and away dressing rooms and the players tunnel), an interactive visit to the press room plus lots of entertaining facts and stories from the guides. We got to walk out onto the pitch with the lights and crowd noise playing, and 8 months on my son is still talking about that moment: it really made his birthday such a special day!

We found travel to and from the stadium to be very straightforward via the Metrolink Tram and I'd recommend leaving time to look around the Man City store too - it is huge! A brilliant experience all round!

I was given a voucher for a stadium tour as a gift. It was easy to book and there was lots of choices.
My wife is in a wheelchair so there is always concern, but I need not have worried. The whole tour is wheelchair friendly, from the moment you arrive at the car park to the moment you drive away.
The guides, Paul, Martin and Graham, were all extremely friendly, helpful and totally inclusive. They made a massive fuss of my wife and ensured that she got more out of every opportunity than everyone else.
We saw and learned so much we enjoyed every second and would recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in Manchester City

Myself & my 9 year old son partaking in our first football stadium tour. Meeting in the 1st Floor of the City Store, after a quick Covid temperature check & Photo with the Premier League trophy our guides, Sam & Graham, introduced themselves & gave us an itinery of what we could expect. I won’t give full details of what you can expect, but the tour offers excellent access to most areas of the Etihad ( changing rooms/ supporters lounges/ gym area/ pitch side/ Media area/ Press Conf Room ) supported by videos & history lessons detailing the Club “then & now”. Both Graham & Sam were extremely knowledgable and had some good stories & anecdotes to further enhance the fan experience. To summarise, I’d say this is a must for any football fan ( let alone any Citizen ) & the hour & a half passed extremely quickly. At the time of writing, your ticket also allows you a 10% discount in the Store

Disappointing tour. We booked months ago and would have been good to let us know in advance when booking we wouldn’t get pitchside. All over the stadium there was signs saying it was the most interactive football tour. I disagree with this; I’ve been on other tours that are more interactive.
I found the tour guide really patronising. I understand there are children on the tour but also the adults have paid the same price and deserve a comprehensive tour. The way they were telling stories was as if we were a school trip rather than a tour for football fans.

I understand it is concert season and so the tour guide instead said they would show us other exclusive places which included a bar and the gym. Not quite the same, also disappointing to read that others got a free photo with the cup as compensation which would have been so much better.
Parts of the tour we saw were the players entrance, chairman’s club, the upstairs seats, the home changing room, the gym - no pitch, dug out, press room, tunnel etc.

We travelled from Scotland for this tour, luckily we have been to the etihad for a match and so have seen the pitch and experienced the atmosphere. We know it could be a great place to visit. We went because we wanted to fully experience the “immersive” tour that was advertised.
I was just really disappointed and hate to say it but their are other football tours that are more inclusive.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of the Manchester City Tour. We are sorry to hear your feedback about your recent visit to come and see us. As you have noted, during the concert season the Etihad transforms meaning some areas are not accessible for tours. We have high standards that we have set ourselves for the delivery and experience that the Manchester City Tour should bring to our guests, and we are sorry that on this occasion we haven't met them. If you would like to contact us by email on tours (at) mancity (dot) com with your booking reference, we would be delighted to invite you back to the stadium for another tour to experience the areas you were unable to visit on this tour and the immersive features of the tour. We also acknowledge that you have travelled from Scotland, so if you were coming for a match next season, please let us know and we would be happy to discuss options with you for a return visit.

This tour was a fantastic experience and our tour guides Paul and Roger were really knowledgeable and so good with our children. They have us all three time we wanted in each area. We originally had booked the true for the morning of a match, but I'm really glad we changed it otherwise we would have missed out on some of the best bits of the tour. It was also a really easy call to change the tour.
Every single member of staff we encountered at city was really welcoming and helpful, it was no trouble to take pictures for us and make sure the children were having the best time
I'd definitely recommend the tour, it was really interesting and enhanced our experience of going to a match.

Travelled from Dublin with my son's football team for a weekend football themed tour of the Northwest. A group of 32 of us mostly non city fans were taken around this very impressive stadium by our guides Ian F and Naomi. As it's a relatively new stadium the facilities are very impressive. The tunnel club, the home and away dressing rooms, the warmup up areas, the press conference room with the surprise VIP guest are amazing but the star of the show was tour guide Ian F whose passion for the club is in no doubt. He held the interest of all the 12 year old kids and kept the dads entertained for the whole 90 minute tour and we all agreed we were a bit fonder of Man City because of him. Highly recommended.

Can’t say how much we enjoyed this tour!!
We are a family of four (two boys, age 7 and 8) and they are not Man City fans….. Chelsea and West Ham….. but, as our tour guide Ian kept joking with them…. they now definitely are “a little bit more City”!!
Our group was small and Ian, who was such a lovely man, made everyone feel welcome and included, especially our boys.
His love for the club, and enthusiasm was infectious and he treated us to so many bits of history and behind the scenes info.
The stadium is immaculate and we were shown so many areas, including the home and away changing rooms, the hospitality areas, the tunnel and pitch, and a virtual press conference with Pep!
There is a tram stop right at the stadium which is really convenient.
On a side note…. We went straight to the Old Trafford tour after this one and it nowhere near as enjoyable or informative as the City tour.
I absolutely recommend this experience for any football fan and want to thank Ian for making it such a brilliant experience!

Ray and Ian were fantastic taking us round the stadium. Made us feel what it’s like to be a city fan with the amount of passion they had for not only the club but the job that they are doing. Would recommend to anyone who supports or doesn’t support Manchester City

Went on a stadium tour on the 13th of June with my boyfriend and we had a great time there. We aren't fans of Man City but as foreigners, a stadium tour in a city with 2 big football clubs seems appropriate. Ray and Dave were funny, informative, and gave intimate accounts of the players and club. Was a bummer the pitch and player tunnel were off-limits due to the concert that ended the day before (damn you Ed Sheeran :( ), but we were offered a complimentary tour the next time we're in Manchester - which we do not mind at all as there's still a lot more to be discovered in Manchester and Greater Manchester! (:

This is a long overdue review.
We are a family of four with two kids ages 11 and 9 and travelled tonLondon/Manchester from Chicago and did this tour on March 24th 2022. We loved it! it’s so worth it for any soccer fan (or even if you don’t follow soccer too much) and even if you are a fan of any other soccer team. What a great experience ! if you happen to visit Manchester for business or on vacation this was the highlight of our visit to the city. The stadium is just awesome, the tour itself is very detailed and fun. The energy from Martin, our main guide, is amazing! what a great tour guide, he made the experience so great for all of us and is so much fun to be with him. He is funny, experienced, with a lot of knowledge of the stadium and team and it really made the tour come alive in our minds. He did a tremendous job and all of the visitors in our group really had a great experience. Julie was also at all times with him and was very nice as well !
100 recommend it !!
