How many miles is a good 'walking tour'?

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to put together some city walking tours for some friends and finding I want to make them 4 or 5 miles long. While I think that's a good length I'm afraid it may be too long. Most walking tours in guidebooks are only a couple miles. I'm thinking about 'walks' that would take the average person about half a day, not counting lunch or going into a museum, etc. Say the average person walks about 3 miles per hour, then TRIPLE that to allow for stopping to take photos, detour down a side street, pop into a building/church, maybe stop for a coffee, etc. then it would be about a mile per hour. Right?

Just wondering what you would consider a good length.
