Had a great experience with Eileen from Manchester Guided Tours. Highly recommended for all ages. The historical relevance of Manchester and its people was wonderfully explained by a passionate Mancunian. We finished the tour wanting to investigate more.

Hi, if you mean the Discover Manchester walking tour it lasts 1.5 to 2 hours and you would walk approximately 1.5 miles in that time.
