We took the sight seeing bus tour at the weekend and like all others I've taken this was a really great way to get an overview of the city and identify other things that we might like to investigate further during the rest of our trip.

The lady guide was absolutely fantastic! She had a great knowledge of the city, shared her knowledge in an interesting way and was really friendly and seemed to have as much fun as we did! :) We rewarded such great guide work with the biggest cheer she'd ever had when going under a wide road bridge.

I'd thoroughly recommend this trip. It's a great way to spend a couple of hours!

The Open Top Bus Tour is a great value and a great primer for Manchester. You tour a great deal of the City Centre, as well as the important places in the surrounding areas of the downtown. The guide was knowledgeable, and provided a great balance of highlighting the history and current/modern elements that make the city great. Bus was clean and reservations were easy to make. Really appreciated the comprehensive acknowledgement received via email.

Just had a really interesting tour of our home town and discovered many beautiful buildings and hidden gems that we would normally just pass by without noticing. Our personal tour guide was very knowledgeable (much better than listening to a commentary through headphones) and the tour covered not only the city centre but lots of the areas which are further afield. We originally booked a tour for 13th July but owing to cancellation of the Metrolink service we were unable to connect with the tour, however Jason and the team at Earls Limousines very kindly transferred our booking to today and we extend our thanks to them. Highly recommended!

We had an excellent and highly enjoyable tour on a hot day. The driver showed skill and local knowledge and the commentary was informative, friendly and entertaining. We felt the route had been well thought-out and covered an enormous number of places of interest. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

Excellent worth the money paid. The lady was very knowledgeable of her city. The only complaint was teenagers talking on and off which was rude after being told to stop.
