It was easy to see why this tour has received a 5 star recognition from NITB. Myself and my partner enjoyed every single minute of it. Very interesting as it covered every single angle of this amazing unique city. Would do this £4 tour tomorrow again.

Went on the Tour recently with all of my Work Colleagues. Garvin took the tour and it was amazing. Very informative with every angle covered. It is easy to see why they are the BEST Tour on this Island. 5 Star.

We very much enjoyed this short and inexpensive walking tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a great ambassador for the city. We would highly recommend it.

If you are in Derry take this tour, its cheap and worth so much more. I went with a tour guide up North that included this tour, and I am so glade they did it. Our tour guid, Gharvin (sp?), was passion in the stories he told. He lived through what happen and wanted us to hear the stories, and... More

A group of us took the tour, Martin came with us on our tour bus. It's not a huge city but so much has happened there, it took us nearly 3 hours. He maintained a balanced, non political commentary whilst telling the story of the city, including his own, very engaging and enthralling personal history. A trip to the St... More

My husband and I were in Derry/Londonderry and few days ago and took this City Tour. We weren't going to be in the area for very long so it was the perfect way to get a flavor for the city and a good overview of it's history. Our guide did a great job and it was well worth taking the... More

A group of us were led on a guided tour by Martin. Very informative. He does his job with a real passion and pride and he clearly loves his city, its people and the tourist attractions. Derry has seen some dark days in the past but with enthusiastic people like Martin spreading the message there will be many bright days... More

The Martin McCrossan walking tour was rated highly in Rick Steve's Ireland, so we tried it. You just show up in front of the big indoor shopping center at 11 Carlisle Street and you can pay after the tour. Our guide, Garvin was fabulous! He is a lifelong resident who loves his city, and was able to explain the history... More

Had been working in Derry on and off for many years, never done anything touristy in it until earlier this week when I took this tour as part of a larger organised event. Captivating from start to finish - some magical moments that will forever stay in my memory and all deliver in a humerous and insightful way by our... More
