Free Manchester Walking Tours is the original free tour in Manchester having started 5 years ago, and the #1 tour in the city if you were to ask TripAdvisor. They're comprehensive and entertaining adventures. Today, we are a small team of 5 Mancunians who love meeting people from all over the world, and sharing the city's story with them. 

As concerts, football and flights have been cancelled, our tours are incredibly quiet, and we are no longer able to financially support the tour or ourselves. 

We would love to offer guests old and new the chance to buy vouchers for private tours, for when this has all blown over. Private tours can be tailored to your needs and interests, and we've found them to be perfect for all groups - from U3As, to business pre-pub socials, photographers, stag and hen dos, and schools. If there's something that isn't included in the rewards, that you think we could help you with, please get in touch.

We also run 'The Alternative Manchester Walking Tour' which is a tour of Manchester's Northern Quarter.
