John Aiker led our walking tour. We were visiting Manchester for the first time. John was interesting and informative and we saw sights that we would never have found by ourselves. It was presented in a friendly way. Would definitely recommend.

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.
