Booking a Walking Tour
Walking tours are generally an event organised by a professional company who will put together an itinerary and sell tickets to anyone who wants to join. Usually, these will be guided tours in which a trained tour guide will lead the group around the area, stopping off at places of interest and sharing their knowledge.
There are a number of companies in and around Manchester that offer these services, but it's important to ensure that you do your research and go with a reliable company who have experience in guided tours.
Of course, there’s no saying that you can’t orchestrate your own walking tour, given that you have a good idea of the places you want to visit, and a map for directions. However, the benefits that you could get from a guided walking tour are second to none. There’s a good chance that you will come across a location that you may have not been familiar with, and wouldn’t have intended to visit off your own back, which makes guided walking tours a valuable experience.
You will also find that a lot of walking tours will be a shared event, in which you will join a group of people who are also keen to explore the city, and maybe even share some of their own stories – making it a more social event.
