Wonderful tour! Our guide Rose Gill was excellent. I really enjoyed it. I would love to return to Manchester someday and take one of the other music tours.

So sad to see Craig passed. He was much too young, and he played a valuable role for those of us making our pilgrimage to Manchester. My thoughts go out to his family.

There are so many ways that the passing of this tour's founder/operator, Craig Gill, will be missed. First, he was the drummer for the Inspiral Carpets, a well know Manchester band that started in the early 90's (or earlier?). Second, he was a father and...More
