The guides are amazing, the price is amazing and the history is amazing. £4 for this tour is a steal. Don't go to derry without doing this tour. I loved the enthusiasm of the guides (I've done the tour twice) and the tour is a mixture of entertaining, fascinating and poignant.

As a local I have taken several groups of friends on this superb and interesting tour of Derry's Walls. All have really enjoyed the tour and found it entertaining and unbiased politically which is not always the case in Northern Ireland. Definitely recommend

On our first visit to Derry we really enjoyed our walking tour and our guide , John McNulty was passionate in his love for his city and its history. He was brilliant. We will definitely return again thanks to him and the warmth and friendliness of the Derry people. Dorothy & Martin from Tipp.

It was about an hour or so tour and we had Charlene McCossan as our guide. She was fabulous. Derry has so much history, it was so fascinating. The southern part of the river where the walled city is, is 98% Catholic and 2% Protestant, whereas north of the river it is 50/50. The 2% Protestant live just outside the... More

This it our is the first thing you should do when arriving in Derry, as you get an overview of the city and it's history. John our guide was a very pleasant, funny and informative guide.

This tour was amazing. Garvin was the most animated guide I've ever had, so knowledgeable! He didn't hold back punches or sugar coat Derry's illustrious AND infamous history. He was so passionate about everything. This tour is definitely a great value at £4, I've paid more and gotten less out of walking tours in other parts of the world.

If you take this tour be sure to try and get Garvin as your guide! Garvin if full of knowledge and a great load of fun. Everywhere we went people we waving and saying hello or stopping to talk to him. The amount of knowledge he has about local history is astounding, though not surprising as he lived through a...

Marin McCrossan's Derry walking Tour was absolutely fantastic and a must do when visiting Derry! My tour guide was Garven who is extremely passionate and proud of his town. He was also very knowledgable and objective when detailing the history and heartache of Derry, giving his first hand experience, which was truly captivating and a great way to learn the... More
