My day out was to Liverpool and Wales. Although several places were closed due to the impending mandatory shutdown, we managed to see several Beatles' sites and the docks. I enjoyed listening to my favorite Beatles' song sitting in front of Paul's childhood home. My childhood pilgrimage seemed complete. Wales is a beautiful country and will be worth a revisit. As always, John was friendly and informative of the local history. We will travel together again in the future. Always a pleasant experience.

Wonderful introduction to the city of Manchester's fascinating industrial history. John is knowledgeable, friendly & obviously enjoys his job & city. His new electric taxi is quiet, comfortable & accessible. The sunroof allows for great views of the skyline architecture. The tour was customized to my interests especially Peterloo. John was also sensitive to my limited walking ability; there was no rushing. A very pleasant learning experience!

I was very pleased by the attentiveness I received on my tour of Manchester with John. He pointed out major historical sites, specifically focused on my interests. I loved that we could get out of the cab and watch a boat going through the lock of the irl well to rock dale river. I couldn't have chosen a better tour guide. Very helpful, attentive and kind. Pleased as a solo traveler!

Juan RodriguezUnited States
This was a great tour. John was an excellent source of historical information and we learned much from him. My son and I came to Manchester to attend a Man U game but left with a newly found appreciation for a wonderful city. We will definitely recommend the tour to anyone interested in learning everything there is to know about the city and the surrounding boroughs... it is another world outside the city center. Thank you John for a wonderful time. We are looking forward to the next visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Juan Many thanks again for coming on the tour, it was a great pleasure to guide you around our fascinating City.
Heather HaeraUnited States
John was awesome! He is so knowledgeable and passionate about his hometown that we had no choice but to be passionate as well. He met us at the airport and took us a very informative and fun music tour. We had my mother-in-law with us and John quickly realized that she needed a "low key" tour while we needed much more. He was able to deliver for all of us. When the tour was over he dropped us back off at the train station so we could go to Liverpool with a warm hug goodbye. Highly recommended.

Patricia McNeilUnited States
John was a fantastic guide--a 10 on a 1-5 scale. I was looking for places where my relatives lived & worshipped 150+ years ago. John contacted, researched & visited the sites before hand so we could find them quickly, visit with locals, take plenty of pictures & really understand the context of the times. He was incredibly knowledgeable, generous with his time, personable, &'flexible. This tour exceeded my expectations in every way. Can't say enough good things about the day. Absolutely fantastic!
Shandin Rickard-HughesUnited Kingdom

Excellent tour! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in tailoring the tour to our specific needs. It was evident that he loves his work and his town. He did extensive research beforehand that helped make "discovering-where-our-ancestors-came-from day" run smoothly. He was very respectful and adaptive to our spontaneous changes including a visit to a newly discovered relative. We highly recommend toursbylocals! Wow!
