Here at Manchester Taxi Tours, we aim to make every tour of the city unique and unforgettable. No two tours are the same, and that’s what makes it so special.
Our very own John Consterdine is Manchester’s only Green Badge Tour Guide and Taxi Driver, and his in-depth knowledge of the city he grew up in allows him to give interesting and exciting tours of all the local attractions.
Some of the most popular places to visit include Manchester’s biggest football stadiums; United’s Old Trafford and City’s Etihad Stadium, as well as the world’s most famous cobbles on Coronation Street. There’s also plenty of culture and history to explore with visits to art galleries and museums, as well as many music venues that have been home to numerous sold out shows from some of Manchester’s biggest bands including The Smiths and Oasis.
“John is Manchester through and through and is very passionate about the City. He is well connected and is in the know about all things Manchester so can show you things you otherwise may not have been able to see. If you are visiting Manchester then would definitely recommend.”
When it comes to exploring the city, the possibilities are endless. We know that a tour of Manchester is an incredibly special experience, so we will work with you to help design a custom-made tour just for you, to make sure you’re getting the most of it. We have an extensive list of some of the most popular locations, but our tours are not limited to these. If you have a certain place to visit in mind, we can make it happen.
As we’re completely dedicated to building the tour of your dreams, we’re willing to look further afield. Although we’re based in Manchester and focus most of our tours in the surrounding areas, we can provide a one-off service elsewhere. It wasn’t so long ago that our traditional black cab took a trip to Wales for a very special historical Manchester taxi tour. You can read all about our journey here, and it might even just inspire you to get thinking about your very own bespoke tour, too.
“Our tour with John of Manchester Taxi tours exceeded my wildest expectations!! During our day-long private tour he helped me find my great-great-great grandmother’s grave site in Llanwnnog, Wales, and also the home she had lived in during the 1840s. Without his knowledge, expertise and engaging people skills this never would have happened. What a stunningly fabulous experience!”
Manchester Taxi Tours welcomes anyone from overseas tourists to the city’s locals. It may be that Manchester is a quick visit on your travels over to the UK, or maybe you’ve lived here all of your life, and just haven’t had the opportunity to explore even half of the amazing attractions that Manchester has to offer. More often than not, people don’t even know some of the amazing sights lying right on their doorstep!
“A Mancunian myself I thought I knew a lot about Manchester,how wrong was I. This trip opened my eyes to a whole side of Manchester that I didn’t know existed… John our driver and guide made us feel at ease from the off. What John doesn’t know about Manchester isn’t worth knowing. I can strongly recommend this tour and would go as far as to say that it is one of life’s experiences that is not to be missed.”
