Good ride.

Never been to to Manchester before and thought you have got to try and see all you can. Glad we did plenty to view, hop on and off when you wanted to see more. Good value.

great idea

The best way to see Manchester and area. I had it planned for a day that poured rain, so did not get off but was still worth the trip!

Very interesting trip

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip around Manchester. It was very informative. We did get off at Salford Quays and had a wander there. Amazing to see how much building work is going on and seeing this great city. Most enjoyable.

The bus we hopped on did not go near the airport mainly went in and around the city centre. The train and trams go to and from the airport. Have a great trip😎

I am sorry I can’t help on the parking issue. You can get on at different points. The best site for information about the bus. Look up sightseeing in Manchester website.
