Did this walk today. Our tour guide was John who was so interesting and informative and told with the Northern Irish wit. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend. To top it off we got free refreshments at the end which we really appreciated on a cold January day. Great value at £4 each.

To visit this wonderful city of Derry and not walk the famous walls would be to miss out on a brilliant experience. I live in the city and I regularly walk the walls. They never fail to inspire me. I have taken some visitors to the city round the walls and as a result they want to come back and... More

a great little walk around the walls of Derry - good views and a complete wall! Not to mention more canon than I've ever seen before. Recommended!

Excellent guide, very passionate about his city. At £4 a person including free tea and coffee its under priced, would have paid more.

Good experience walking the walls. To know a bit of history and get a good view of around the city. Also you can see some churches and museums and the walk.

I'm a walker. Wherever I travel, I like to be within walking distance of the city center or able to get there directly/easily (even if it would take a while). I spent a month in Derry and greatly enjoyed walking the city walls. In the rain they can be a little slippery (they are, after all, the culmination of only... More

The walk round the city walls with Garvin not sure if its spelt right but the man was so passionate about his city and people. We got a great history of the walls.

The artwork itself is brilliant. With an extremely sad story behind it. wandered around them. Some signs there were intimidating. But all part of history and their cause. Incredible it happened in the first place. Worth a trip. Yes
