Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Alexandra (Alexa) Fairclough met our touring group of 22 Texans at the lovely Clayton Hotel and gave us a 5-hr fact-filled tour of several of the historic areas of downtown Manchester. We all kept thinking "This is the end", but then she'd say, "Now we'lll head over to......". She clearly absolutely loves her city and was thrilled to share her excitement with us. She told us that she also gives architectural tours and is a QUalified Green Badge Tourist Guide. I would rate this tour: Splendid!! AlexaTours@outlook.com

Ive lived in Manchester for almost 2 years, but this is the first tour I booked because mum and dad came to visit. The tour experience was SO good, way better than I expected! Even knowing some bits of Manchester history and culture the tour guide was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot of new things! Gareth was very easy going and happy to converse, make jokes and answer questions. I would highly recommend this tour -and its free!! We offered a tip at the end because we enjoyed it so much. But the best part about it was the cute little dachshund who helped guide the tour!

Emma took a group of friends on a Food and Feminism tour of Manchester on Saturday. She created the tour especially for the group and it was absolutely brilliant. Emma is so very knowledgeable and introduced us to some outstanding women of history and of the present. Her delivery is outstanding, her love of her city and the topics she is presenting is infectious, entertaining and educational. Can't recommend Emma highly enough, it is my intention to work my way through all the tours on her list. Thank you Emma for a fantastic afternoon of culture, learning and entertainment.

Food & Feminism Walking Tour of Manchester: fabulous, fun and interesting! We (group of ladies from south Manchester) were guided by Emma Fox on a Food & Feminism walking tour, lasting about 2-3 hours. We learned lots about Manchester's amazing women, both modern and historical, walked around the city centre, stopped at a pub, a restaurant and a buzzing cafe for arranged drinks/food/refreshments. We went into the Central Library, the Art Gallery and the Portico Library to see the special features there related to our topic. All the while Emma kept up a flow of informative and interesting chat, pointing out the relevant statues/busts/painting and landmarks as we went. Even those who have lived in Manchester all their lives learned loads, and those newer to Manchester now feel we know it much better. Thanks Emma, we loved it!

I turned up and waited but no one was there.
Please eliminate these false promises.

It is really unprofessional

I was not planning this tour and simply showed up to get information at the Tourist Information inside the Central Library when I was told there was an 11am tour. I joined Denise's tour.

I just arrived to Manchester the night before and did not think much of the city. But Denise showed our small group of 3 people some great spots and talked about history and the DNA of the city. I'm very happy I joined this tour as now I have a better understanding of Manchester and I appreciate the city more.

Go on a tour, it takes less than 2 hours and you will also see Manchester from a fresh new perspective.
