Great tour which included music, history and plenty of street art. Great local host for the walk, who had lots of interesting facts and knowledge. This also helped us decide where to eat and drink and to navigate our way around the city . A good thing to do when you first arrive.

More than a Tour, More like a Family

This was such an incredible tour! Our tour guide, Joe, was super knowledgeable about all things music in the area and actually had personal stories about specific bands that originated or had history in the area (ex: Oasis, The Arctic Monkeys, The Smiths). The tour was well worth every penny, as we learned so much about the history of Manchester, visited hotels, listened to songs, saw famous landmarks, and finished up at a pub. After eating at a local historic pub, the group of us decided to explore more sites and pubs as a group, just hanging out after the “tour” part had finished. Truly we met friends on this tour that will be friends for life! It felt less like a tour and more like chilling with some friends in Manchester (with lots of cool info learned). We just met up with a friend in London this week that we met on the Rock & Goal Tour in Manchester! Thank you Joe for a wonderful experience!

Thank you very much Dana for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you all and I'm glad everybody enjoyed the experience and stayed around to hang out. I'll give you a shout next time I'm in London!

The most memorable was arriving at 10.50 for the 11.00 tour along with 4 other people for the guide not to arrive to abandon it at 11.20 to then try and claim a refund
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Hi John.Thanks for your review. Unfortunately the clocks changing caught me out so the tour started at noon instead of 11am. I have requested everyone a refund from Tripadvisor and offered everyone a free tour in the future. Sorry for any inconvenience and I hope to see you soon

This tour was so much fun with Joe! He was a great guide and catered the tour around some of our music/movie interests. I loved that he had his speakers so we could listen to relevant music to the sights we were currently seeing. I highly highly recommend this walking tour. You will not regret it.

The tour was awesome. Joe's knowledge, and the amount of information that he shared with us was exactly what we were looking for. I especially loved the history of music in Manchester, as well as the street art, but I found all that he shared new and interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour.
