Sandemans Manchester

Sandemans Manchester, are you looking for a better free Tour in Manchester

Our Free tours in Manchester are way better than any other free tour you could imagine like Sandemans Manchester, here’s why.

You are probably looking for a Sandemans Manchester to make a Freetour in Manchester, well here’s the reality: There’s no Sandemans Free Tour in Manchester. But don’t panic I’m going to explain to you why we believe we are better and we are the number one reviewed Free Tour in the City. You have probably made a lot of Free tours around Europe including the famous and popular Sandemans New Europe Free Tours or more popular know as Sandemans.

We don’t have a script or a template. I’m sorry to say this to you, but Sandemans gives a script to all his tour guides. When you do a tour in a city we believe you want a local will tell you interesting facts about the city and show you why he loves the city. There are brilliant guides on Sandemans, absolutely amazing, but Sandemans is a big company that wants everyone to say more or less the same so you don’t really get the real experience of a local. On Si Manchester Free Tours you get what you want: Independent tour guides that will show you the city you love from a local perspective. No scripts. No templates.

We are not pushing you selling. Do you ever wanted to know how Sandemans New Europe Free Tours work? It’s simple, they have create a big company and then all the tour guides are freelances that can use their brand on exchange on paying them a fee per booking. Didn’t you realize why they take that picture that some never post? yes, you got it, to count how many people are on the tour and claim money from the guide. A couple of pounds only depending the city. So How do the actual company survives? Obviously through pushing you to buy other tours that are not free. The tour guides are expected to sell this tours or they will not get days to work. That’s why sometimes you don’t know if you are on a tour or you are on a Ryanair flight where they push you to be constantly buying a tour.

On our Free Tour Manchester we are different. Our tour guides don’t pay to any company, they just work for tips and they keep their money, because this company is just a two people company focus on you getting the best free tour and the best experience in Manchester. We have other tours in the company that can make your experience better but we are not prioritizing ones over the others and even if you don’t want to do a experience that doesn’t mean that we are not going to help you design your time in the city.

We don’t have hidden commissions with places. Have you realize that in every stop with Sandemans New Europe they take you to a particular bar or cafe? Well, that’s not casual. They take you to a place they get money on exchange or you having a drink there on the stop. And then you ask them where to go to eat and they tell you two or three places and tell you to drop their name… that’s how they monitor how many people they get commission from their “recommendations”.

On Si Manchester we don’t do that. We only recommend you the very best of the best places to eat in Manchester or the best places for a drink in Manchester. Always based on our experience in the city, no hidden favors or commissions, just plainly our love for the culture of the city.

And there’s even more, we are independent people, you help an independent local business and get the best you can from a city.

Free Tour Manchester in Spanish

Si Manchester is the only tour operator to offer a Free tour Manchester in Spanish

We know how hard it is to travel to a different city, a different country, a different food and specially a different language. Well, we can make that las part easier: we are the only company to offer a Free tour Manchester in Spanish.

Manchester might look a “difficult city at first” accused of having “nothing to see” and even accused of being uglier than the back of a fridge

Ivo Delgado had a different opinion and founded “Si Manchester” in 2015 as an independent blog-guide of the city.

He believes that Manchester has a lot to offer so started recommending the best places in the city and doing tours around the NQ.

Everything changed in 2017.

After attending Ariana Grande’s concert and surviving the Manchester Arena’s terrorist attack he realised that Manchester is something more than a city, it has a spirit that no book can explain, and the beauty of Manchester is not only in buildings, streets, statues or museums.

Manchester has a personality.

Creating Si Manchester Free Tours in Spanish it was the best way to explain to everybody how this city has been shaped, and for everyone to understand why he loves this city.

And “Si Manchester Free Tours” was born with one main idea:

Si Manchester is not only a Tour.

Si Manchester is his story.
