A waste of 90 minutes. Recorded commentary was boring and out of synch for the first part. It doesn’t stop at all the advertised stops. It’s advertised as hop on and off but with limited stops and only 3 bues a day that’s not easy. You are better off using the trams

Incredibly rude bus driver, late/missing service, poor commentary and only available in English and difficult to hear if anyone is speaking, no attempt to slow when passing landmarks some of which are only visible down side streets or alleys. Prices shot up by 1/3 since 2023 but old prices shown at starting point. We arrived early for the 11.15 service and were joined by others but it never arrived. Hence when the 12.00 service came it was overcrowded with some passengers having to stand. Driver was thoroughly unpleasant to a foreign tourist in front of us and yelled at another who showed his ticket and walked on. Stickers on the bus say commentary is available in various languages using the ‘sightseeingmanchester’ app. which doesn’t seem to exist. The poor English only commentary was relayed through speakers which were difficult to hear if others were talking. Early part of the journey is through the heavily trafficked city centre so extended periods when nothing was said or of significance to view, followed by sprints between traffic lights. The service is also infrequent with the last bus starting at 15.00, hence limited opportunity to do much hopping on and off. We ended up taking the tram to see some of the sights on the route.

The tour itself was fine, although it was so hard to hear the commentary over the speakers being upstairs, but the worst part of the tour was our incredibly rude driver. Honestly one of the rudest people I have ever met. I never write reviews so that means a lot coming from me. I came down stairs to double check whether the bus would be stopping at a certain stop and was shouted out like a teacher scoulding a child -‘SIT DOWN!!’. I was so shocked and upset by his behaviour, it really ruined my day. Will not be recommending this tour to anyone in case they have the bad luck of getting this same incredibly rude driver.

I emailed the day of my tour, and 2 follow up emails over the course of 5 days asking for a refund for a terrible experience and they have ignored everything. See pictures for the issues.
