Our first visit to a stadium couldn't have been more memorable thanks to the Manchester United Stadium tour! From the moment we stepped onto the hallowed grounds, we were immersed in the rich history and legendary tales of this iconic football club. The tour guides were incredibly passionate and knowledgeable, sharing fascinating insights into the team's legacy and showcasing the behind-the-scenes areas of the stadium. Standing in the players' tunnel and walking on the pitch sent shivers down our spines, making us feel like true champions for the day. An unforgettable experience indeed!

I was unable to complete the purchase of the ticket on the official Manutd website and thankfully GetYourGuide had the ticket on sale, which made it much easier and made it possible for me to fulfill my dream of visiting the theater of my dreams, a team that I have supported since I was 9 years old. being Brazilian. Dream come true! Thank you very much!

The theater of dreams!! The tour is fabulous and love every min. of it. The tour guide was amazing - sharing facts, telling behind the scenes events and respectful. Magnificent feeling that's hard to describe.
