Had been on the bus tour and wanted now to walk the walls. Wished we had gone on this tour first and forgotten the bus. Great guide, John of the beard, mixing humour with stories with the facts. He took us from the earliest times to the present day in a chronological way that made sense. He made sure that... More

The walking tour provided by Garvin was excellent. It was obvious from the start how passionate Garvin was about Derry-Londonderry. He was knowledgeable and entertaining, there was not a dull moment during his tour.

We went on the tour last Friday with Charlene as our guide She holds your interest very well with her humorous views and factual,if slightly biased,information. An excellent way to walk the walls, and at £4 which also includes a cup of coffee is good value

Be prepared for a good walk, along the top of the walls of the walled city. Despite the rain, the tour was so much fun. I learned a great deal, and our tour guide was a daughter of Mr. McCrossen. She was knowledgeable and fun. We learned about past history, current events and the movement towards peace in this amazing... More

This walking tour was informative and entertaining. Our guide was knowledgable and made the tour enjoyable, even though the weather wasn't great. Definitely well worth doing

I wish I could take this tour a dozen more times. I learned more about the city of Derry from this tour than I have from reading a hundred different sites on the net. The guide was fun, funny, engaging, interesting, knowledgeable, friendly and informative. Don't miss it!
