We did a walking tour around Free Derry with a guide that had been personally involved in what is know as 'The Troubles. John had first hand experience of the events that took place during these times so added a depth of understanding and knowledge that might not have been available elsewhere. He used the murals to explain both the... More

This was one of the best guided tours I've ever seen. Our tour was delivered by a Bloody Sunday victim's brother and gave us a great insight in the local perspective. He was very nice and we felt really welcome. I think it was one of the highlights of our visit. It's really a rare opportunity to hear about the... More

Our first time in Derry. The Tour was superbly and professionally delivered by a brother of one of the Bloody Sunday victims. It was a totally balanced view of a part of history everyone should be aware of. The Museum is in temporary premises at present but acts as a superb prelude to the walking tour. The walking element is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our three days staying in the fantastic city of Londonderry. There is so much to see and an amazing amount of history, much of it quite recent. The tour was extremely well delivered by a lovely man who's brother was tragically killed on bloody Sunday. Many of the murals and memorials are very poignant but it's impossible... More

I am a former paratrooper, I served three tours in the North of Ireland/Northern Ireland (although none in Derry). I attended this tour with other members of Veterans For Peace who had also served in the North of Ireland/Northern Ireland. Eugene told us the history of the area from a local perspective and gave us a real insight into what... More

Really enjoyable day out in the maiden city with the most informed and knowledgeable guide Eugene who gave an expert insight into the political, social and cultural history of the city. I would thoroughly recommend this tour as an excellent and informed insight into not only the overall history but also the personal stories of the people themselves. Well done... More

Informative, powerful and revealing talk from a personal perspective. Eugene brought all the events seen by us on TV at the time and from a one-sided, propaganda-based establishment point of view only, fully alive to us. We learnt a lot from the museum displays too with some remarkable artifacts and evidence from the past. Thank God things continue to improve... More

We took 5th and 6th years on a tour of Northern Ireland and without exception every student said the free Derry tour was the highlight of their tour . Our guide Eugene was extremely informative and engaging . Not to be missed if you are traveling to Derry .
