    Excellent tour
    The tour was very well run, informative, engaging and fun. It was well organised, and takes you to plenty of spots around the stadium to get fantastic pictures. You also get to go down to the Players change room, walk along the race to the edge of the pitch, before walking past the bench into the press box. Was really worth it, and the museum was worth a visit too!

    Good access - good fun
    Eddie was the main tour guide and was knowledgeable and witty. He allowed for engagement even though there was a big tourist group that were loud and not interested in listening. I felt he did very well to keep the others engaged. Not a United fan but my grandfather loved it.

    Great experience, fab staff
    Visited here yesterday with my partner , 2 children (7 and 4) and my 2 week old baby and was blown away at how friendly , chatty and accommodating the staff were the minute we walked in the door. They let me leave my pram in a safe zone, I was allowed to use it for the museum which met all our expectations and was immaculate. We stopped at the cafe too which was very reasonably priced and laid out great. We then had a tour guided by Mike, he was great. Really loud, funny and fab with the kids he put them front and centre for everything we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience as man utd fan but the staff really made our day. Well done

    Old Trafford Stadium tour
    Did a stadium tour today and what a dream come true - no wonder why it’s called the Theatre of Dreams. The tour guide was amazing. The staff from the start to finish were exceptional and very accommodating to our 4 and 7 year old kiddies.

    Personal Stadium Tour
    Our family came to experience the museum and stadium tour as part of our trip to Manchester. We were impressed by Eddie, the tour guide. He was knowledgeable and fun and made our boys laugh. He had lots of behind the scenes information (including a very detailed chat about the pitch) and he clearly loved the club and his job promoting it. We have been to other stadium tours (our boys are football mad) and we much prefer the personal touch of a tour guide, rather than the audio guide tours which other clubs provide.

    Brilliant.
    Absolutely amazing. First time to this magnificent stadium and city. The tour guide Mike was absolutely brilliant. The megastroe is definitely worth a visit, also the red cafe. Highly recommended

    Great experience
    I don't have any particular interest in football myself but booked the tour to bring my son. Staff were excellent and were very helpful when I needed to amend my booking. I really enjoyed the tour and enjoyed hearing about the history and workings of the stadium. Our tour guides Dave and Phil were great and very entertaining! I would definitely recommend this, especially for football fans!

    10/10 - Amazing experience
    I was given a stadium tour through Virgin Experience for Christmas and decided to book it for Tuesdays 22nd August. Speaking to the customer service book team they were so helpful and polite and explained the whole process and booked us in. We arrived and were greeted by the customer service team within Old Trafford who were friendly, profession and polite. We received an email prior to arriving explaining the process. We got there at 10:15 - 45 minutes prior to our scheduled tour which was at 11. But that was not a problem we were directed to the Museum which gave us plenty of time to wonder and take everything in. The tour started exactly 11:00. We were taken round the stadium by Phill and Ziggy (hope I got their names right) who were so professional, polite and full of information they were on hand to answer any questions that we had. The tour lasted 1 hour 10 minutes plenty of opportunity to take photos and videos and ask questions. Magnificent Stadium. Amazing Experience. Highly recommend this if you’re a football fan or a Manchester United Fan. The stadium is around 10-15 minutes by Taxi from Manchester Piccadilly Station around £10-£20 Roughly depending on traffic.

    Always an amazing experience
    Old Trafford is the home of Manchester United. Went to the game against Notts Forrest and could not believe they went down 2 goals in the first 4 minutes. The crowd lifted the team and United came back and won 3 to 2. Very exciting and well recommended.

    Great day out!
    The children absolutely loved the experience of looking around old Trafford and seeing everything. We had lunch in cafe red which was amazing! Ali was incredible at looking after us and was always on hand when we needed something. Couldn’t of asked anymore to make our experience anymore enjoyable! Great day out and great to see some of the women shirts in the changing room.

Visited here with my 10 year old son. Not the best experience, we have done stadium tours of several other grounds and this was disappointing in comparison. The museum was good and the guide knowledgeable. We were given hand held devices that had extra information and some videos on, however when we were told to watch the video that was playing the guide was talking at the same time, so we had to choose which to listen to! At times we could not hear the guide as we were spread over too wide an area. There were 45 people on our tour, far too many, spent most of the time waiting for everyone to catch up, found it hard to hear/see things and even though social distancing is not a requirement now, it would have been good not to be packed together with so many people. At various points our group were hurried along by the next group wanting to be where we were! It was a shame we did not see the dressing rooms but these are currently undergoing refurbishment. The tour lasted one hour but that was due to waiting around. We were not allowed to take our own photos in the press room, as they were taken by staff and sold for £10 each, this is the only stadium where this has happened, all the other's, that we have toured were happy for you to take your own in the press room, the others did however charge for photos with current trophies, perhaps not having any is the reason Manchester United need to make money from these photos! The tour ended in a large, well supplied (overpriced) store. Unlike other stadiums no shop discount was given for people on the tour, would have been a nice touch.

Came on a match day and there were therefore no tours. Being a big Manchester United fan, that is of course a letdown.

I made the most of my trip to the Theater of Dreams by visiting the displays that were outside, including the Sir Matt Busby statue, and the United Trinity.

A visit to the megastore is also mandatory and I was impressed by the range of merchandise on offer. Fans will be thrilled.

Massive rip-off, I paid nearly £300 for a “VIP” match day package from P1 Travel and food wasn’t even included. Paid £12 extra for a chicken burger and it wasn’t cooked all the way through so had to be binned.
The “free” tea & coffee at half time was a no-go as the queue was massive and we would have missed the start of the second half.
You get a cushioned seat to watch the game but there’s hardly any leg room (and I’m not tall so it would have been painful for a 6 footer!)
Save your money and just go for the normal £45 ticket in the North Stand.

I have been on the tour twice in the last year with my grandson. If you have been once you can go again for free any time in the following 12 months. Even though I do not support Manchester United, it is an iconic place to be shown around. Beware though it is a large ground and there is a lot of walking to do as well as going up and down steps. I must admit I found it hard going.One disappointing aspect is that the admission process can be very lenghty. You really need to get there at least 1 hour before your tour starts. Last time we arrived 30 minutes before and although they identified us and fast-tracked us through we arrived at the start of our tour with 1 minute to spare. So get there early as there are places to eat and drink as well as the museum where you can spend your time before the tour starts.

Id recommend visiting here while in Manchester. The museum is Brilliant and definitely worth taken the time
To look around and appreciate the history of the club and stadium.
Even if you are not a football or even a Man United fan you will still enjoy the walking tour and learning about the history of the stadium and club. Excellent!

It’s been a while since I had been and old Trafford is truly epic. So much history at this club and this venue. The trip to stadium was easy by public transport with loads of help from metro staff and stewards. The tickets were clear so finding the right entrance was easy. The club shop was huge and had literally everything you could imagine with Man Utd branding although not cheap! Security checks were good, friendly, reassuring and rapid. There was food, drinks including alcohol and there was a happy hour! Best value for the day - beer pint and crisps in happy hour for two was £6 each. Loads of places to get program outside. Everything well marshalled and all fans were fabulous. Only bad point was metro teams did not put on enough teams for people getting away so long waits.

An amazing stadium with so much history and creates so much awe and amaze when walking through the stadium and even the exterior. The tour was really amazing with great guides and provided a tablet BUT did not rely on it or use it rather than doing a good job themselves unlike other premier league stadium tours you can do. The tour was really great with the guides providing good humour and had excellent knowledge of the club and the ground as you’d except. I think I enjoyed this tour more than others because it was with an actual guide which is my preferred way to do a tour. I highly recommend doing this if you are in the Manchester area and not to mention the museum is big enough to get lost in and spend an hour or more looking and admiring the success and history that the club has.

We loved our tour of the Old Trafford Stadium. It was great value for money and you get to see a lot of the stadium and the players' and managers' areas. I am not a football fan at all but even I enjoyed it and learned a lot. My partner who is a fan of course absolutely loved it. This tour was the highlight of our weekend in Manchester.

Really enjoyable tour of Museum and impressive stadium. Museum was very interesting with excellent archives, display boards ,trophies and video footage etc and gives an insightful look into the history of United. Fantastic opportunities for photographs.

The tour was equally interesting and impressive and the guides(can't remember their names) were very friendly, enthusiastic, articulate and knowledgeable .They told some amusing stories and really explained the stadium so well.

As a United fan it was a very worthwhile and beneficial visit and I would recommend to United fans and even other supporters of other clubs.

Out of 5 stadium tours in London and 2 in Manchester, this one gathers the most people. Ronaldo is back and people are swarming on Old Trafford. However, it surely is worth it by itself. The museum is not that big but the tour gives you a comprehensive look of the stadium and the two guides share enough stories to tell your friends afterwards. Definitely recommendede and not only for MUFC fans.
