    We really enjoyed our tour with our local guide. She was most knowledgable about Manchester and took us to some great historic spots. Even after the tour was over she was happy to help us navigate Manchester and tell us directions. I would highly recommend this walking tour.

    Response from MCRGuidedTours, Tour Guide at Discover Manchester Walking Tour
    Responded 1 week ago
    I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Please could you contact us on bookings@manchesterguidedtours.com so we can discuss? It sounds as though you and the guide missed each other, which is of course very unfortunate. Of course, we can arrange a refund if you missed your tour. We need to know what date you were booked on.

    Our tour guide John was very informative on the history, architecture, and culture of Manchester. The birthplaces of feminism, punk rock, and the Rolls-Royce company surprised me the most. I highly recommend this afternoon walking tour.
