Founded by the late Martin McCrossan these walking tours of Derry have received local, national and international recognition. Martin will be greatly missed but he has trained a team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides who will entertain and educate you about this great city

A great tour and well worth the price! Our guide was so passionate about his city and it was clear he knew about the history of the city in detail. Was a great way to get a snapshot of the history of the city and we were pointed in the direction of other great tourist attractions too. This is a... More

Went on the walking tour this week and found it very enjoyable and informative, although the tour party were conscious of the recent sad passing of Martin Mc Crossan. Our guide Garvin is certainly an ambassador for Derry and passed on a lot of interesting historical facts about the City, the apprentice boys and the key events from the "troubles".... More

My partner and I went on the tour yesterday at 4pm with Garvin and really enjoyed it. Garvins passion for his city is plain to see. He is extremely knowledgeable and could easily answer any questions asked. We will definitely return to Derry so experience all of the other attractions Garvin spoke to passionately about. Unfortunately we were only there... More

WOW! is not a big enough word to describe the tour we had with Martin McCrossan. He is so friendly, passionate, polite and very unique. His knowledge and passion for Derry is so obvious and I just cannot think of what else to say except 'YOU MUST GO AND HAVE THIS TOUR'. It is well worth the money.

Just back from spending the morning with a group who work in the Hospitality and Tourism Industry as we completed the WorldHost programme. As part of the programme today we went out along with Garvin and completed a walking tour taking in the Guildhall, City Walls and Surrounding Area. Garvins knowledge of the city from when it was a small... More

Martin is an extraordinary tour guide. Very polite individual. He is incredibly passionate about what he does, providing accounts of Derry's history and not only that relating to the recent troubles. His confidence in Derry's bright future is evident and he showcases this throughout the tour. It's an experience not to be missed!

We had a private tour with Martin on Saturday, which was absolutely amazing and inspirational. If you are interested in History of the Northern Ireland and would like to know facts and actual stories, this is the tour to take! You will be looked after from the beginning of the tour till the end. Great tour, great guide!

The McCrossan tour should be done by anyone visiting this brilliant city for the first time. Our guide was enthusiastic and proud of his home city and entertainingly gave us a fantastic history. The siege of 1689 is truly amazing and all locals should feel extremely proud of the way their citizens protected the city from invading forces. These are... More
