So much history

Love walking these original walls . I do it every time I visit, which is ever 2 to 4 years. Great for all tourists to the city.

The walls are very well preserved and offer great views over the rest of the City. There are enough signs on the walls to give a basic understanding of the history of the City and the importance of the walls

We enjoyed a walk round the walls seeing the old and new and meeting other visitors. Of course you'll need to descend to meet the locals - city walls, special though they may be, are for tourists

This was a fascinating tour. Bill, our guide was really informative and didn't give a 'one-sided' version of events. I will definitely come back with friends and family to experience this again.

We booked a taxi tour with John and Dermot, and they tailored our tour to us. They met us from our cruiseship dock. We had a panoramic tour en route to the Giant's Causeway (via Dunluce Castle), stopping wherever we wanted to take photos, then were driven round the highlights of the city, such that we could see that we...

Having visited Londonderry this date you must take a tour of the City Walls. There are guided tours laid on if you so desire. We had an unguided one. Parking the car at Bishops Street bridge we were able to go around the city on the wall. You pass a coffee shop . The scenery from the walls are amazing... More

You can take a 90 minute tour with a guide of these historical walls, or of course walk them yourself. There's plenty of information both available from the tourist information centre as well as on boards around the walls themselves. Although the walls are generally flat , there are some steps to climb and you can walk most but not... More

Take a tour of the walls with a local guide to hear the heart wrenching story of "the troubles" and how the community is working towards keeping peace for their children

We walked the walls on a rainy day but thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a tourist info guy who was very helpful, and some great actors doing re-enactments of historical characters.
