What people are saying about Manchester

I was a Silent Disco Advirgin until this very day. We were literally dancing in the streets. The Silent Disco Adventure was so much FU ! Our leader Adam and his assistant Brandon had us shaking, shimmying, singing, and strutting around to the amusement of ourselves and onlookers. It's like being on parade. I initially I thought it was an actual tour, and wondered how this was going to work with music, etc. No tour, no problem. Unsure of the distance, but it was smiles for miles and a nice bit of exercise without trying. I would TOTALLY recommend this and look forward to doing this again. It's great for introverts because you're in your world while being in a group.
