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

Look for the yellow shirts to ensure you get the real deal! I unfortunately cannot remember the name of our tour guide but he was brilliant (as you expect from all Irish - he had the gift of the gab!) You are taken on an hour long tour around the city walls, given history and first hand experience of the... More

Fantastic walking tour of the walls of Derry. Our excellent guide Garbin told the story of the historic city walls and vividly shared what life would have been like for the people of Derry when they were locked inside the walled city. He brought us into more recent times with the "Troubles" in Derry and explained in great detail the... More

Was privileged was see Derry through Martin McCrossan's eyes on recent trip. Our group not only learned about Derry's history, but we relived the turmoil and struggle of the not-so-distant past. I cannot remember a more rewarding experience anywhere else I have traveled over the world!
