Highlighting the best parts of Salford, and commenting on the highly accessible features of our comfortable taxis, the write-up reads: “The best way to see everything is to take a taxi tour with John Consterdine, an award-winning cabbie…

Manchester, UK. The home of British dance music, modern computer science and the world’s best soap, Coronation Street. In our opinion, Manchester is the greatest city in the country. We might be biased, but it wasn’t named the best UK city to live in last year for no reason. So, it appears that we share our opinion with many other knowledgeable people who agree that Manchester offers everything you could ever need, in an almost less-busy, more compact version of the UK capital, London. With its colourful history in science, culture,…

I have the best job in Manchester and it’s a real privilege to meet visitors from all over the world and guide them around our fascinating city.

Manchester Taxi Tours, as seen in Boston Globe… Our very own taxi driver and tour guide was interviewed by the Boston Globe recently, for an article all about the difference traditional taxi companies like us and the newcomers on the market, such as Uber. “When the rideshare company Uber (he pronounces it “YOO-ber”) came to Manchester, Consterdine had a backup plan: In addition to driving his iconic black taxi for the usual fares, he uses it to take visitors around on guided tours. “You want to really be with someone who…
