I have often visited Manchester but I have never done a tour before. Now that I took part, I regret not doing one earlier. You could really tell that the tour guide Gareth was passionate about the town and its history and gave additional useful tips on what to do in Manchester. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants an overview of the towns most interesting sights. Even though it was a long walk, the time just flew by.
