Really enjoyable walking tour... Which is a big statement from me as I prefer to explore on my own. Plenty of information in a great environment. John was the guide and he was great!

This walking tour was one of the best that we have been on. Our tour guide Garvin was brilliant, engaging and very very knowledgeable. This tour captured the history of the beautiful city both good and bad. A very enjoyable and worthwhile experience. Cheers

I went on this tour today with my mum. Sorcha (apologies for the spelling) was our guide. She was very friendly and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her and the walking tour. Any questions were answered and she pointed out a lot of points of interest. Would recommend 100% :)

My fiancé and I took this tour with Garvin. We were the only two so we had what felt like a private tour. Garvin was insightful, passionate, interesting and above all a very nice guy. At one point he bought a tear to my eye with some of what he said. We loved the tour and was the best £4... More

My boyfriend and I have just finished the tour with the lovely Garvin. Since we were the only ones to be going at 2pm we got a private tour which made it even better! Garvin has great knowledge of the city and obviously loves 'his wee City' very much. He told us the history with great passion, humour and excitement.... More

My wife and I enjoyed a City Tour of Derry with City Tours Guide Garvin who accompanied us on a coach tour around the city. The tour is about an hour in length and was fascinating with both stories and history of the city both in the Medieval period and through the troubles in recent decades. Our Tour Guide Garvin...
