It was a nice day which helps. Lots to see & find out, but there was no headphones to hear properly you had to rely on the speaker, which if you were near the back & people were talking it was a struggle!

After doing several hop on hop off tours in different cities...this one dosent really stack up. Commentary is hard to listen to over speakers rather than earplugs....lot of driving around outer areas of city....walking tour is much better option in Manchester
