John is not just for Manchester anymore. I contacted John with a special request, instead of a Manchester tour, could he take us on a day trip to Liverpool to The Beatles Experience and then to Wrexham for lunch at The Turf Pub, made famous in "Welcome to Wrexham"? A simple request and John delivered so much more. Not only was he happy to oblige my request, he made the mistake of asking if there was anything else he could do and that cost him a drive to London.

My request for a trip to the Beatles Experience and lunch in Wrexham ended up with a seamless transfer from our London hotel to our Manchester hotel, an in-depth history of Manchester and the historic Manchester-Liverpool rivalry, a trip to not only The Beatles Experience, but to various famous Beatles sites, lunch next to The Race Course in Wrexham which was hand delivered into the pub by John himself, a unique Wrexham pitch photo op and an after dark highlights tour of Manchester on our return.

A perfect day and a half with John. Do not go to "The North" without including John in your plans.

What an amazing 3 hours. Packed with hidden gems, interesting anekdotes and special places. We took the Manchester United Tour, but ended up, seeing a lot of Manchester, that we would never have seen on our own. A huge thx to John, what a fantastic guide. We highly recommend using John. Its worth every penny.

I cannot say enough positive things about MCR Taxi Tours & John C. When in Manchester nothing brings a smile to my face faster than seeing that clean, comfortable black taxi waiting to take me on another adventure. This vacation, on full & partial day tours, John shared his vast knowledge of Manchester, Blackpool, Scarborough, & Wales as well as providing transportation to other venues. His experience, friendliness, & wit shine through as he offers bountiful knowledge of the area's history, architecture, geography, & local personalities. Attentive to your needs & interests, he plans your tour accordingly. He even arranged other transportation when he was unavailable. Knows where the good food is & takes great photos, too! Thank you, John, for another stress-free, comfortable, totally enjoyable travel experience. Looking forward to the next adventure.

We cannot thank John enough for our wonderful experience of a lifetime. He was 100% attuned to the interests of our group and we all learned a lot and had an absolute ball. We wanted to see the classic Manchester music sites and those we did, stopping for photos of course, but John made the experience all the richer with in depth information about not only the things we knew we wanted to see, but so much more. He shared his love for Manchester through interesting stories and anecdotes. John couldn't have been kinder, more flexible or more fun.
Highly recommended.

Simply can not say enough good things about John Consterdine and our experience on our tour from Manchester out for a day. John is friendly and personable, but also professional and VERY informed on the history of Manchester. He was beyond gracious with me in particular, and my love of all the British soaps - especially Coronation Street! My husband and I traveled from Toronto Canada to fulfill a very overdue dream of mine to visit England and Scotland. What a beautiful day John provided us with! From Manchester and Salford out to West Yorkshire where he made several stops for me to take in all the sites and beauty of the countryside and my beloved soap Emmerdale. John, my husband and I can not thank you enough for such a wonderful experience that will be cherished forever! I'll never forget that day we spent under your guidance. Cheers to you friend, with our very best regards Mena and Sandro Perinetti 🍁😊 P.S. Don't miss out on a chance to have your very own guided tour with John Consterdine!

Simply put, John made our trip a great experience. We used John a total of 5 days over a 15 day trip to Northern England starting with a fantastic tour of Manchester. He delivered us to 5 different hotels in Manchester, Liverpool, Grosmont and York in his very comfortable black taxi. He provided wonderful information about each city and took us to places we'd have never found on our own. If you're going anywhere in England, call John!! You will be glad you did.

We have just come back from a great day touring Manchester in Johns Taxi
Johns knowledge is out of this world,we live in Stockport and what we learnt about Manchester and parts that we didn’t know existed was fantastic.My wife is an avid Manchester United Fan and the tour included the history behind the club.
The Afternoon tea was really good.
We will definitely be back to discover more.

We booked John on the spur of the moment. Luckily he had just finished a job and was at our hotel in 10 minutes. We booked him for 2 hours but it was obvious after one hour we wanted to see more and hear more from John about his Manchester. He is passionate, knowledgeable and funny.

His car is extremely.comfortable and quiet.
We could hear his commentary clearly and he was more than happy to answer any of our questions, and stop for photo ops if we asked.

We would recommend John's guided tour to anyone wanting to learn more about this fascinating city.

How does John make 5 hours pass so fast ???

Cracking tour today with the brief of "something different"......where and how did John get that knowledge ?? From Radcliffe Castle to the "first and only swing viaduct in the World"......yes, honestly ! Totally interesting. Completely fabulous. Hilarious at times and always informative and interesting.

And a fabulous afternoon tea under Castlefield viaduct to finish it all off. Just WOW.

Thanks from the Maffia clan plus one Gorton interloper !!!!

Took a tour with John today and learned more in the first 5 minutes than I expected to learn in 2 hours. We hit all the must see places and a few that were customized to us. The cab was electric and clean and comfortable. Got into the cab half asleep (morning tour) and got out of the cab with a new favorite city!
