Do this first before you do anything else in Derry. This walking tour (sponsored by Martin McCrossan tours) was superb and a fantastic introduction to the city. It lasted 90 minutes and was led by John, who was a wealth of historical and local information. John was very friendly and welcomed our many questions. He clearly is very proud of... More

Myself and a friend did the Walls of Derry city tour. John was our guide. If you go - WHEN you go! - ask for John. He's brilliant. He knows a huge amount and imparts all his knowledge very clearly and genially - but the best thing about him is how proud he is of Derry. He should be an... More

John was our guide and very knowledgeable he was too. Not too taxing as the route is only 0.5 miles but a lot of information is included. Courteous and friendly. Highly recommended whether you're a tourist or a (sort of) local ie NIrish.

Recently done this tour for the third time. Doing it once a year is not enough. Last tour with had the pleasure of doing it with Garvin. Absolute pleasure. And the passion he has for the city and his job is a joy to listen to. Best Tour On This Island. Keep it up !! Dev

John McNulty was our guide, and he did a great job with a large group of people on a beautiful sunny day in Derry. His tour included history of the city from the siege to the troubles to today, in an easy to follow but not condescending way (for us foreigners). His pride in this special city was evident and...

This was by far the best walking tour i have ever been on. The information of the city was so interesting and delivered in such a passionate way that it made me want to live in Derry. Our guide was unreal, i think his name was Garvin. I felt so privileged to have been able to do this walking tour... More

The Martin McCrossan tour of the old city walls in Dublin is one of the best tours I've been lucky enough to join. Mr. McCrossan died earlier this year, but fortunately had already passed on his knowledge of the walls from the 16th century through the recent reconciliation after the troubles to others. Our tour guide was exceptional. He kept... More

The most interesting and down to earth tour. Highly, highly recommend! John loves his city and fellow man and it shows. Left me with optimism I haven't felt in a long time. Thank you.
