“Best birthday ever!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I love Manchester and the amazing musical heritage that shaped me (Factory Records, The Smiths, Stone Roses and even today with PINS). So when my fiance told me that I was going on a personalised tour and it was with Craig from Inspiral Carpets, well......

The tour was within the city and not only was Craig informative, he was very down to earth and had some funny stories as well as non musical Manchester history.

It was a great couple of hours that I will cherish forever! Thank you Craig for making my 50th feel like I was 17 again.

“Amazing thoroughly enjoyed!!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

We went on The Smiths tour Saturday 3rd May. I booked this for my boyfriend as a Christmas present. Craig was so helpful prior to making the booking and was really informative. We had a brilliant time. Craig is so down to earth and knows he's stuff on the Manchester music scene. Highly recommended and now looking to book for the Stone Roses and Joy Division tours :)
See you soon and thank you so much for everything again :)

“Made our weekend in Manchester”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We went on the Smiths tour and loved it. We are not from Manchester so we got to see places that we would have not known about. It really made our weekend. Graig was nice and easy going. Highly recommended. Thank you. :-)

“A must do!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

My friend and I went on The Smiths/Morrissey tour of Manchester - which included stops at Strangeways, Salford Lad's Club, the iron bridge and cemetery gates amongst others. Craig was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the Manchester music scene - especially as he is part of it as well as being a fan. I would recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in music - and as a "must do" to all fans of The Smiths/Morrissey. The stop off at the Salford's Lad's Club is worth the price of the ticket alone!

“One of the best days of my life!?”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Craig has loads of history to tell you about Manchester's rock legends including his own band Inspiral Carpets!! I did the Oasis tour but I'm pretty shure the others are as good as this one.
Worth it!

Cheers
