Great tour of Legen-derry, a great tour that provides history and stories from personal experience. Guides are friendly and are more then happy to recei e questions on any local subject. Focused around recent history mostly but also covers some older stuff too. Recommended to all

With work I visit most cities in the world but never have I've never been on a tour where the balance has been so brilliantly presented. It's easy to have the passion especially with what Derry has experienced over the years, but to have it delivered in such a balanced, yet factual way was simply outstanding. I simply cannot recommend... More

The start of teh tour is a bit hard to find (being a new tourist in town), but this is an excellent tour. Our tour guide took her time, waiting for slower folks to catch up, provided detailed explanations and answered many questions. The tour is a very easy walk, yes there are a frw steps, but once on the... More

"Martin put a personal face on Derry history: from the 14th to 21st centuries". "I heard about this tour through Rick Steve's Ireland travel guide. It is the best way to start the day in Derry. Very entertaining and informative".

I have taken this tour three times with various guests to Derry/Londonderry. I work for the church of ireland and feel it is important to give a context to our foreign guests to the history of the city. I have been with three different guides, and they all have their own excellent way of communicating and sharing the story. The... More

Having been bounced into a competitor's tour we tried this one in the hope that we would get an informative full understanding. This we got in spades and had great gaps filled in. A fun Sunday morning walk around Derry with a guide full of information with a happy balance of serious fact and humorous anecdote, all delivered with passion... More
