Fantastic tour with Joe around Manchester. His knowledge was phenomenal and he took us inside lots of the buildings, telling us about the history of them. A great tour, one I'd definitely recommend to others.

Really nice tour with a great guide! If you want to discover the more or less known parts of Manchester I would strongly recommend.

This tour with Joe was absolutely fantastic. His knowledge of Manchester is phenomenal and he showed us all the hidden gems, that you wouldn't see if walking around on your own. I can't recommend this tour enough.

I was born in Greater Manchester and have lived here almost all my life and I STILL learned things about Manchester that I didn't know! Joe is fun, enthusiastic, highly knowledgeable and full of really interesting anecdotes. I will definitely be joining another tour in the not too distant future. Thanks Joe!

Joe made me fall in love with the city after only about a half an hour. Funny guy, proud local, amazing anecdotes, interesting stories, lovely guide! This was my 35th tour in Europe and definitely the best thus far!

"Met at the specified time and location and Joe took the group to many locations giving history and background for each one. Joe was lovely company and very knowledgeable and his obvious passion for Manchester was evident throughout the walk. I thought I knew Manchester well but saw places that were new to me and learnt a lot on the way! This was a lovely way to spend a few hours despite the rain......Kudos to Joe for the time and company."

Joe was very well informed on pretty well everything about Manchester; from various historical events, architecture, and culture. From his background as a musician he knows a lot about the music scene over the last several decades, including the evolution of some well-known bands. Top marks!

Excellent tour, would highly recommend to anyone visiting Manchester. Joe was a great tour guide and had buckets full of knowledge about anything and everything. Overall an awesome experience for getting to know the city and its history, also a unique way to make some new friends.

What a great day!! Joe was fantastic - really energetic and fun. He helps you remember things you once knew and lots of things you didn’t. Footie, Music, History, Architecture you’ve got it all!

Joe gave the group a really informed and enjoyable 3 hour tour of Manchester. He referenced a lot of the music that has come out of the city and even played us examples as well as showing us the historical buildings and street art. The tour gave me a good grip of the geography and history of the city. His knowledge, including so many dates & names, was bar none.
Really recommend this daily 10.30am tour from the Chinatown arch.

Throughly enjoyed Joe’s walking tour of Manchester. If you love music this one is for you. We were blown away by Joe’s in-depth knowledge of the music scene. Tour was very engaging and just the correct length. Would highly recommend a great way to see such a historical vibrant city!

It was a real treat! The guide Joe is a real expert in the city. He knows all the fun facts about the city’s music scene. The duration is on point. The tour covers various aspects of Manchester, from history to music to literature. I will join his tour again for sure for my next visit.

What a great tour... Joe was fantastic and if you want to know anything, and I mean anything, about English bands/singers/venues this is the guy to ask ! very personable and entertaining... you will definitely enjoy!

Amazing - had never been to Manchester before and didn't know where to start so did a walking tour with Joe - so glad I did, a real eye opener, his intimate knowledge and eye for detail took us to places we would never have simply stumbled across, I genuinely feel that I know the city now, albeit through everything learned from Joe. I simply cannot recommend this tour enough. His little snippets of "inside" information here and there made it all the more worthwhile.
