  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    Booked a half day Scranchester tour as a surprise for my husband’s birthday as food is his very favourite thing! Rob was a great tour guide, really knowledgeable about Manchester and took us to some great little places. Love the fact that it’s all independent places so we’re supporting local businesses. The food was lovely, we were in a small group which worked really well. A great half day which we really enjoyed and would recommend. Hoping to go back for the Ancoats tour later in the year. A fab tour. Thank you Rob!

    I loved this tour which I took last month. Julia was a wonderful guide: patient with our many questions and very knowledgeable about the places we visited. In addition, the various food offerings were great (too much food actually - I didn't need dinner that night). All in all thoroughly recommended.

    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.

    Excellent trip with wine!
    Met Kel at the Alan Turing statue, and from there we were spirited on a leisurely walk to the venues, given plenty of wine based facts all delivered with a fantastic amount of Mancunian humour! Snacks at the venues were delicious, and can’t wait to pound the streets on our next tour! Definitely not one too miss

    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.

    Absolutely loved this tour - so thought-provoking, interesting and emotive. Something I would recommend for everyone, especially if you're Mancunian. Hayley's passion for place-making, inclusive city design and art was infectious and made me same the same streets I've walked for years in a totally different light. Thank you!

    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!
