I have lived in Manchester almost all my life and have a lot of pride in my city. I love showing people around and making sure that they have a great time and leave with good memories. Manchester has something for everyone, whatever you're into.

My name is Alasdair and I am an enthusiastic, friendly student from Manchester. I have always loved meeting new people and making new friends wherever I am in the world. My main passion in life is helping people and to some day save a life, hence why I am a First Aider and am hoping to get into Medical School. Lots of my friends like me because they find me funny and sassy (in a comedic way), if a little bit weird. But I always say everyone has to be a bit weird otherwise the world would be boring. One thing that I think makes me unsual is that I can recite the entire script of The Dark Knight (the movie) and that I can play the french horn, if quite poorly. I love Manchester because there is always something to do, there is always a gig going on and always an event to see. I also love Manchester because of the huge diversity of people and cultures there are to see and explore, from Chinatown to the Jewish community in the North.

Ciao! I am Francesca and Italian teacher who lives in Manchester. I moved here in 2015 but I've been dreaming about moving to this amazing city for a long time! Why? Because Manchester has everything you need, if you know where to look for..football and music above all, but also museums, great walks and restaurants and its University and culture. I will bring you around the city while listening to some good Mancunian tunes to discover its hidden gems and will give you tips for the best restaurants in town.

I am a university graduate, music lover and skateboarder with an endless amount of energy and a positive attitude. I produce electronic/hip-hop music, play drums and enjoy nothing more than discovering new music and meeting new people. I have studied in the UK and France but I have loved Manchester for its people, culture, history, skateboarding community and vibrant music scene since I was young.

Hi, I’m Roy and a very proud resident and lover of my exciting, vibrant and cosmopolitan City of Manchester. I've lived in Manchester for 64 years and find that my city, Manchester, is one of the most exciting cities in the world. Manchester has been the founding bedrock of the industrial revolution and innovation and has many exciting museums exhibiting this. More recently Manchester has been the inspiration for some of the most creative musical minds in the world from the Hollies; Simply Red and Oasis. What I love about Manchester is that it constantly surprises me with new things to see and experience whether that is culture, the arts, the fabulous architecture, sport or music. All my acquaintances from all over the world are surprised by the diversity of interests when they visit Manchester. Manchester has many hidden gems that they just fall in love with in this vibrant and exciting modern city. If you make a booking with me I can take you on wonderfully relaxing walking exploration of this wonderful city, we can find many interesting things to do in the ‘town centre’ such as the vibrant Northern Quarter, with its rich history and which also comes alive at night. You may want to know about the alternative modern areas such as Spinningfields, well known for exciting places to relax and dine. There is also the famous ‘Village’ and historic Castlefield all within easy walking distance. So, if you want to discover one of Manchester’s coolest neighbourhoods that has something for everyone then I'm your Local!

I am an engineering student in the University of Manchester with a great enthusiasm for city architecture, transportation (especially trains) and food! I lived in the USA during my early childhood and then grew up in the UK for most of my life, living in various places like Cambridge, North Wales and now Manchester. Before I moved, I knew some parts of Manchester since I've visited many times and then when I actually did move for higher education, I really started getting to know the city and beyond to explore other towns and cities in the north (Liverpool, Preston, Blackpool, Lancaster, Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Sheffield and more) by hopping on and off buses, trains and trams. I've also explored every borough in Greater Manchester, with pictures of major centres of each one. As I have a travelling mind and an excellent geographical idea of everything, I'll be happy to help anybody, whether they're new to city or just need someone to help them move around the city faster without missing out on the major sights and big bargains! Even though I've lived in Manchester for just over 2 years, I know the whole city as if I've lived here for 20 years! I absolutely love the great diversity of cultures as well as the mix of old and the new, especially the architecture from Grand Victorian town halls to towering skyscrapers of the modern times. I know exactly how to spend time and visit places efficiently. You can also check out my website where I put guides for train travel based on my recent experiences http://trainspotteruk.webstarts.com/ I hope you will enjoy travelling around the city with me!
