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.

    To start with i just want to express how incredibly patient Darren was with my father and me, we had decided with Darren to meet up at a certain location, but because my father and me basically got lost on the tram system we ended up meeting up at a different location to meet up and Darren was nothing but understanding and warm about the whole situation.Now to the actual guide, not for one second did this feel like a tour, and I mean this in the best possible way, it felt like going through the city with a friend rather than a tour guide. Having said that. his knowledge of this place was immense, he was with us for almost 4 hours and not for one second was there a pause, so many things he told us about. I have been a Manchester United fan for a long time, but this tour gave me a new rejuvinated passion not only for my club but for this beautiful city.

    Brilliant fun day out. Clues clever but not too taxing. Got a good stroll around the City.

    Maybe a feature to pause the clock? It was thirsty work and the bars were very tempting!

    Even if you were an alien landing in Manchester joining this tour you would already know the music stories told. Nice tour guide but at times it felt we were going for a walk with a friend and not being taken on a walk by a tour guide. Waiting around for taxis; periods of awkward silence; very brief and sometimes inaccurate information; I have never heard of a band called New Division for example. Could do better! Not worth the money sadly.

    Good fun. Does what it says on the tin. Recommend for a different way to sightsee and get to know the city.

    We took our friends to Manchester earlier this months and got this tour. At first we were a bit sceptical but after a couple of locations we loved it.

    Really simple and you get 2 whole days to enjoy it.

    Amazing fun, everyone in our party of 25 had a brilliant time in the glorious Manchester sun. Instructors made it even more fun and the music was great!

    It's okay but could do more by going round more strategic locations such as Manchester City Stadium etc

    An absolutely fabulous day out with Gary Friday, the perfect host for such a tour. He had an encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject and all kinds of insights into the filming of PB, the choice of the locations and the national history which was so much a part of the series itself. He also took the trouble to get to know everyone and kept us all amused for 8 hours. We visited filming locations in Liverpool centre, Ellesmere Port, Castlegate, Manchester centre and Fairfields finishing with the chapel in Tabley where Tommy and Grace married. A very friendly group of people on the tour, all ages and from all parts of the UK and several from Europe who had travelled specially for the tour. We were all taken by surprise in the Tabley Chapel when Vincente, a charming young Spanish chap went down on one knee to propose to his lovely girlfriend! She accepted (of course!) and we celebrated in the adjacent tea-room with a cream tea, led by Gary in a tea-cup toast to the happy couple . All in all a great day and an absolute must for anyone who appreciates the excellence of the Peaky Blinders story.

    Alex, the guide, gave a thorough and informative tour to an eclectic group, with great detail and humour. A fantastic introduction to the city for me. Highly recommend it.

    Joe is an amazing guide. He is very passionate about his job and his city.

    He told me a lot of anedots about Manchester and it was a pleasure walking with him around this beautiful city.

    He played with a small radio some songs which tell the history of Manchester and explained to me the meaning of the songs and to which period or area they were referring to.

    I will advice you to join a tour with Joe! This is a really great and pleasant way to discover and visit the city of Manchester.
