Nice tour

Joe the tour guy was very knowledgeable about Manchester`s history especially about the important music scenes. He also introduced us to the names of some people who played an important role in the city`s history. Also showed us some of the great street artworks across the Northern Quarter and also talked us thorough the meanings of them and what they symbolize. Highly recommended. Thank you Joe :)
