Nominated for The Tourism Star award (Manchester Tourism Awards 2012).
Awarded the 2014 Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor. Manchester Music Tours was established in 2005 by Inspiral Carpets drummer Craig Gill. Drawing on his first hand experiences he pieced together a walking tour of landmarks synonymous with Manchester music scene, this became so successful that Craig decided to develop the business and branch out into a range of exclusive specialist driving tours such as; The Smiths, Joy Division, Oasis, The Stone Roses and Factory Records, you can now see and experience all the sights of the city and beyond that inspired the Manchester music scene, hear how the city has produced so many great bands over the last 40 years it has become the envy of the world.
Because these tours are hosted and guided by a true stalwart of the Manchester music scene, these they have generated TV interest from around the world (see ‘on tv’ section).
