My name's Josh. I'm a playwright, a History MA graduate - but most importantly, a proud Mancunian! I set up the original free tours of Manchester. We are now a small team of Mancunian guides who are incredibly proud of the experience we've crafted over the last 7 years, sharing Manchester's story with the world. @FreeTours_MCR

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

I highly recommend to join one of Chris’ walking tours. He made me fall in love with this city. He didn’t just choose the right places to show, he gave me opportunity to think about topics like feminism, slavery around the world, freedom to be whoever you want. It was such an inspiration and presented in the most interesting way, I didn’t even feel it was 3 hours. If you come to Manchester please choose a tour with him it will be much more than a simple tour. Thank you for being such an inspiration!
