An absolute must do! Will highly recommend this tour to our family & friends. Derry is a beautiful city, & our tour guide John was brilliant - funny, pleasant & informative. I'm not surprised this company have such great reviews. We learned a lot & had fun along the way. Thanks John!

We toured on 8th January with John at 2pm. It was an excellent tour, never shying away from the grim realities of the city's history, but always explained in a balanced and measured way. The pace was gentle but never slow, the information constant but never overwhelming. John's love for his city and optimism for its future shone through. I... More

John answered any questions I had an was clearly knowledgeable about the city. He gave lots of suggestions of how to spend the rest of my time in Derry so it was... More

An hour's leisurely walk, much of it up on the city walls, with great views of the city, and kept amply entertained by John's fun, informative, and balanced talks on the history of a city that...

We took our tour with Dermot (I'm pretty sure was his name, was a few weeks ago now), and he was brilliant. I imagine he has down the tour a hundred times before, but his enthusiasm really showed that he loves his job and loves his city. He went into so much detail and depth with every aspect of the...

$8 for this 1hour walking tour not strenuous at all and it tells you a lot about the war between the catholics and and non catholics in northern Ireland , it is a beautiful city, with lots of history, the tour guide should be on the oscar role for his great acting or story telling on the tour, and he...
