The private tour I had with Jutta was absolutely amazing.She practically showed me all important landmarks of the City in 2 hour walking tour. She was very friendly, communicative and perfectly knowledgeable about the history and places around. It really felt like toyring around with a friend... I will definitely try this again when I come to Manchester again

Carolina was our guide and was incredibly knowledgeable about Manchester and it’s history. Carolina showed us lots of places in the city that we had never been to before, despite having lived in the vicinity for all of our lives. Thank you so much for a wonderful informative 3 hour tour.

We had a knowledgeable tour guide who brought us closer to the most important things about Manchester, was very interesting and informative.

It was an excellent City-trip. I've learned a lot of new things about Manchester. It was a great experience. Thumbs up.

It was a lot of fun with Jutta, she adjusts herself individually to the wishes.
