I need to single out how fantastic our tour guide, Garvin, was. I think he might be the best guide I have ever seen. He truly loves his city and you feel it in every story and gesture. I felt he was able to convey Derry's struggle and successes perfectly, while never being boring. Also, he seems to be loved... More

On Saturday myself and my friends took the tour with Garvin Kerr, tour guide with Martin McCrossan tours. Award winning is so well deserved. From start to finish Garvin made the tour interesting, informative and hilarious, such a natural story teller we were amazed the tour took 1.5hrs it went so fast. Garvin was very knowledgeable, friendly and as said... More

Martin McCrossan City Tours are a must do when in the Walled city!! It is very interesting, well-thought out and essential as part of getting to know a wonderful city. The tour guide was brilliant, extremely friendly, knowledgeable and clearly proud of his city. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

Such an interesting tour. The guide was so friendly and it was clear that he knew his stuff and loved his job. Worth going to if you want an insight into the city's history.

Had an excellent tour of the walls, with informative information throughout , Garvin our tour guide was fantastic , sometimes sad sometimes funny but always non biased giving the history of the city and it's walls right up to the current day.

We had first decided to bypass Derry/Londonderry (learned on this walking tour that this is the politically correct name of this city), but on a recommendation of a host at a B&B in Northern Ireland, made a stop just to take this tour by Martin McCrossan City Tours. This is one of the best walking tours we have ever had;... More

Martin was amazing. Not knowing much about Derry when we arrived, this was the perfect way to kick off our time in this city with a one-hour tour. Walking the walls and listening to such a passionate, experienced guide was so helpful and interesting. Martin is extremely professional and his personal history adds to the tour and history, good and... More

We just spent a weekend in Derry and having read a lot about the history we decided to take a walking tour to help us place everything in context. The hotel recommended Martin McCrossan city tours. We were advised to ensure it was this tour with the guide with the yellow shirt we went on and we were very glad... More

We took part in one of Martin's tours of Derry and it was a great and informative experience. John, our guide, gave a very detailed outline of the history of the city from the very early days right through to the recent Troubles. He presented the information in a clear and informative manner and was certainly very cheery in that... More

This tour of Derry was included in our CIE tour. The step on guide (yellow shirt!) rode with our coach through Derry giving a running narrative of the places. Then we dismounted the coach for a walking tour of the city wall. I have to say that the guide was very enthusiastic, and obviously in love with his "beautiful city".... More
