I loved this tour! Our guide was entertaining and really was able to tell the history of the town in an interesting and informative way. We really got to see and learn so much about this town and I was so happy we did this tour. I highly recommend that everyone stop in Derry City and do this walking tour!

Done the Martin McCrossan Derry city tour again a few weeks ago, this time with Garvin. Every time I go around with a different guide I get a different experience, Garvin was top class and I found it hard to hold back the tears at times. I would highly recommend you take this tour during your stay in Derry. Great... More

This is an adorable, easy and short way to learn about the complex history of this city. The tour guide was entertaining and very serious at appropriate times. I would say any first time visitor should take this tour.

Our guide Dermott was excellent. He was entertaining and provided us with balanced insight to the city. The city is fairly small, I think a walking tour is the best way to go. We got good overview of past and present. I think this tour was the highlight of our time in Derry.

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
