What you'll do

One might think that Manchester is all about Football but, there’s so much more to discover in this amazing City.
This is where the Industrial Revolution started, home for many social movements like the Suffragettes, the place where the Communist Manifesto was written, and more than 25 Nobel Prize Winners studied in.
Here you will find the First Public English Library of the World and you will be able to see the remnants of the First Passenger Train Station from 1830.
Manchester is also a place to discover great music and big names like Joy Division, The Smiths and Oasis. The city underground bars and famous clubs like the Hacienda changed the musical scenario worldwide.
Lately Manchester is thriving with more students than ever enjoying the great University of Manchester and everywhere we see new independent bars, shops and cafés that bring a unique feeling into town. I'm so curious about this City and I would love to share my views and the stories I learned here with you. This is a unique experience that will make you travel through time and will give you a new perspective about the Northern Power.

I was Born and Bread in Brazil but I´m also Spanish. I've been travelling for the past 15 years and I lived in many places like Barcelona, Brussels and Santorini. I also worked in many different areas and this helped me learn and understand the diverse of cultures. Each new place I explore enriches me in a way I always wish for more. I love sharing experiences and being helpful with others. Lately I've been living in Manchester and I'm in love with this City and all its history and tales that will amaze you and make you wish you had spent more time here.

This was a really good tour - what it does is give you an excellent overview of the city and a little about a lot which works really well.

It was a great experience. As Carolina puts it "Manchester is not a very obvious place" so it is better to enjoy it with someone like Caroliy who knows what makes this city special.

Really love this trip, I learn a lot about Manchester got wonderful tips, and I would never achieve this rout by myself, it really makes you feel the heart of Manchester and learning the history.

An absolutely excellent experience! I only had a short stay in Manchester, but I feel like I got a really good grasp on the city due to this tour. I learned a ton of history and also left with lots of recommendations for other bars, restaurants, and sites to check out.
