This year marks the 11th year anniversary of the prestigious award, which is run by Mirror Travel and VisitEngland. John Consterdine was amongst hundreds of nominations and has made it into the final 10.
The voting for this year’s awards has now closed. John would like to thank everyone who voted for him, it didn’t go unnoticed. Manchester Taxi Tours’ hard work will continue as always and who knows, hopefully we’ll be back in the running next year!
Mirror Travel’s write-up of John reads:
“John is a qualified tour guide and licensed taxi driver who uses an electric cab for his trips – the hi-tech, accessible vehicle carries six passengers, and a glass sunroof gives a terrific view.
The pandemic and lockdowns badly hit John’s business. But he tried to remain positive and used his downtime to build a new website and used social media to post videos and articles every day, interacting with people from all over the world.
John also devised The Afternoon Tea Taxi Tour, teaming up with award-winning patisserie Slattery of Whitefield to provide a unique experience combining two British icons which has achieved UK and global media exposure.
With an in-depth view of Manchester and all things Mancunian, John prides himself on a friendly, professional service and gets many reviews from happy clients.”
John is honoured to have been shortlisted amongst many other wonderful tour guides, and he couldn’t have achieved it without the support of his incredible customers.
