Can’t hear a word of the commentary as on extremely low volume....along with the noise of the city/traffic you have no chance! Every other hop on hop off bus in the world has headphones but not here. Such a Shame as lots of interesting Manchester facts but simply couldn’t hear.
WASTE OF TIME

Thank you for your feedback - however negative!

You are wrong though with your statement that "Every other hop on hop off bus in the world has headphones" - this is simply not true. Many have recorded commentary and others have live guides - both played through speaker systems just like on our buses. Our buses have speakers on both decks - where were you sat?

Of course, everyone's hearing is not always the same!

This has been a low point on my holiday, even though the weather was beautiful. No live guide, which would have been okay if we could have properly hear the recorded one... Which was not even on point sometimes as the driver (who never introduced herself and was kind a rude for a touristic bus) was running late. Would never do that again. Next time I'll take a regular and cheaper bus ride, the result will be the same anyway.

We only used the bus once, sat upstairs at the back and couldn’t hear commentary, weren’t even offered ear phone and all the seat speakers had been ripped off anyway.. I’m from Mel, Australia and had family drive 6 hours to Manchester to be so disappointed.. so £36 went down the drain

We travelled as a group and the £30 ticket for 4 people was excellent value. Never explored Manchester before and it was great to pass Manchester United. Commentary was quite informative and driver was certainly helpful. The bus was quite full upstairs and sometimes the recorded commentary was a bit difficult to hear. But generally a good tour and makes me appreciate that Manchester and Salford have sights to see!

We went to Manchester for a 24h trip, and to see as much as we can we decided to take the bus.

Philip, our driver was very friendly and gave us much more information than we expected. We had some funny and great moments, and I think all people in the bus felt the same.

Great tour, great city and greater people!

I recommend this tour. Thank you.
