My fiancé and I took this tour with Garvin. We were the only two so we had what felt like a private tour. Garvin was insightful, passionate, interesting and above all a very nice guy. At one point he bought a tear to my eye with some of what he said. We loved the tour and was the best £4... More

My boyfriend and I have just finished the tour with the lovely Garvin. Since we were the only ones to be going at 2pm we got a private tour which made it even better! Garvin has great knowledge of the city and obviously loves 'his wee City' very much. He told us the history with great passion, humour and excitement.... More

My wife and I enjoyed a City Tour of Derry with City Tours Guide Garvin who accompanied us on a coach tour around the city. The tour is about an hour in length and was fascinating with both stories and history of the city both in the Medieval period and through the troubles in recent decades. Our Tour Guide Garvin...

We took the tour around the walls with Garvin and it was definitely the highlight of our visit to Derry. He was so lively and informative, answered all our questions and kept the kids (9 & 6) engaged and entertained for the whole duration of the tour (about 1.5hrs). I loved all the little side stories, his love for Derry... More

If you visit Derry this tour has got to be one of the first things you do! It is brilliant value for money and there is a free cuppa at the end. We were privileged to have the late Martin McCrossan as our guide. His passion and love of Derry was evident during the tour. The interesting facts we learnt... More

Founded by the late Martin McCrossan these walking tours of Derry have received local, national and international recognition. Martin will be greatly missed but he has trained a team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides who will entertain and educate you about this great city

A great tour and well worth the price! Our guide was so passionate about his city and it was clear he knew about the history of the city in detail. Was a great way to get a snapshot of the history of the city and we were pointed in the direction of other great tourist attractions too. This is a... More
