Walk around the city walls with a guide as he tells you the history of the city and the origin of the Troubles. The views from the walls are wonderful, but wouldn't be the same without the guide.

Nearly native, frequent visitor to this wonderful city! Decided at long last to do something more cultural and what a feast of culture it was. Our tour guide was John and he was both informative and interesting. It was the best £4 I ever spent and will do this tour again so I can soak up all the information..Well done... More

An excellent tour informative, historical and amusing. Many thanks for looking after us both during and after the Walk. Could you also pass on our thanks to Bentley's Wine Bar for the excellent food and service. The people of Derry were very friendly and a lot of myths were dispelled. I and the members rate this tour 5 star.

Martin is a great guide, he taught us a lot about the history of the town and how it's been shaped by it. Great tour!

Big thanks to Martin for a fantastic, enlightening, gut-wrenching and bittersweet city tour, with all the torrid history you could cram into an hour. Highly informative and definitely memorable!

This was well worth the £4 fee. The tour was really informative and easy to access - the guide was really interested in where people came from and relating to them as well as answering any questions that came up. If in Derry turn up to this tour

Went on the tour and the guide was very informative. This was a excellent experience and breathtaking, certainly a must when visiting this beautiful city. A sad history and the guide was brilliant would definitely go again. Absolutely five stars.

We contacted Martin to organise this as part of a corporate event. Having to organise this on company time the communication was efficient and was easily handled online and Martin was, as expected, extremely professional. The tour itself was informative and fun, keeping in mind that all the participants were from the surrounding area. We were also under pressure as... More

Thank you Martin for a brilliant morning! Although it was bucketing down, it didn't diminish Martins enthusiasm and passion for the city and it's past. .. Good or bad. A great tour that i will be recommending.

Thank you,Garvin,for guiding us through the visit with such knowledge, kindness,wit and passion. It cannot be easy to deliver tbe message as if it was the first time or as if we were your first audience ever.What a delight. So, if you come to this city you cannot miss the guys in the yellow shirts. More than highly recommended.
