At 3 hours we thought this would be possibly a bit long and boring. But no it was amazing. Such and enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide through the city's history Highly recommended - we paid £5 each and felt it was good value.

A very enjoyable 3 hour tour with our guide Grace. An interesting mix of locations and facts, a little too much music related topics but then I am not into music. Some great history of Manchester and a very easy pace suitable for all.
