We took one of the tours with Eileen. After a friendly introduction we found the tour easy walking with lots of unknown facts about this beautiful city. Well worth the £8 fee.

The tour I commented on turned out to be all about the history of Manchester regarding cotton and the birth of the Labour movement. Rather too specialised I would think for French teenagers.
