While in Manchester i had trouble locating a tour guide, or a visitor center to advise me on local attractions and tours available to us as my husband was busy attending a conference leaving me to explore the city and surrounding areas. I stumbled upon the brochure at the hotel lobby, and decided to book a tour to the wedgewood factory as I really wanted to see this attraction. The company were fantastic and specially modified the tour for me to enable me to fit this into the busy schedule we had. I was super impressed with the company, their ease of access, and the way the tour was organised. It was a real highlight for me, and I wish i had more time to spend at the wedgewood factory as it was well worth the effort.

We booked our trip the day before and met a lady at the station in the morning who gave us our tickets and explained the itinerary to us. We are big Beatles fans so we've been meaning to visit Liverpool for some time and we really enjoyed the Beatles Story. The bus was a great way to get around and we feel like we got to see so much of the city. We were attending a conference in Manchester the day before and didn't really have time to plan this ourselves so booking with them was perfect for us. Overall a great day out!

This is a great service, I met a friendly person at Piccadilly station who handed over my travel tickets then I set off to the Lake District. Even though the weather was not brilliant, I really loved the Sightseeing bus, boat cruise and steam train. I was also impressed with how easy it was to book! Would definitely book another trip next time I'm in the city!

Booked a day trip to York, was met by a young lady at 08:30 where she explained everything and gave us our train tickets. We had to go to the Tourist office in York to pick up our passes which gave us access to over 30 attractions (with limitations, for example we wasn't allowed to do the Bell tower in the Minister). There was a slight confusion at the office due to them not reckoning the "day trip" but I was told this was due to it being a fairly new option.

I would recommend people do this over a longer period as we had to rush to get to and from places before they closed. We were unable to ride on the Yorkboat due to missing the last sail time (this would have taken almost an hour off us anyway so perhaps for the best).

Went as a couple, lots to do, including for the kids gives a good history of York. Would visit again.

I am pleased that you enjoyed your day trip to York, yes we offer free entry to 30 attractions with our visitor pass. You can choose which ones you would like to visit in the day, I agree it is not possible to visit all of the attractions in the time, our guests select which ones they find more interesting. Our train tickets are open day return so you can stay later than the suggested return time and take a later train at no extra cost. We hope to see you on another one of our day trips very soon. Thank you for booking with Manchester Sightseeing Tours and Day Trips.
