It's an excellent tour for those looking for information about recent and ancient history in Ireland. It amazing the emotion and proud of our guide when he was telling about the history (sometimes sad) of this amazing City. If you have an opportunity you should do this tour.

Met Garvin, our tour guide, on a foggy midmorning tour of Derry! His upbeat personality brightened us up before the Irish weather. He is fiercely proud of Derry and that comes through loud and clear with his stories of the past and present. His stories are sprinkled with jokes and humor which lightens the history lesson. Definitely the way to... More

Fabulous tour with Garvin who really knows how to enchant his audience. Great stories on a range of aspects of history told in a non-biased fashion. Absolute must do - no better way to find out so much history! Great value and free for kids.

We booked ourselves onto this walking tour of the City Walls and found it fascinating. The guide was clearly very passionate about the City and managed to present a very informative, apolitical view of its history. Very engaging and enjoyable - our visit to this beautiful city was the highlight of our trip.
