Our Trafalgar bus tour hired Ronan McNamara to give us a guided walking tour of Derry/Londonderry. I can't describe how great it was. Ronan is a very informative, articulate speaker who really seems to love his job. He provided a thoughtful and unbiased review of the history of the town and the Troubles. Even the rain (shocking I know) didn't... More

A really good way to get an overview of the city. You can go down and investigate areas before returning to continue the loop.

Really enjoyed walking around the city walls. Chose to do so independantly and at our own pace. Lovely day when we did it so clear views of all the places of interest you can see from the walls. Definitely a must see when visiting the city. Information points located at every vantage point and place of interest along the wall.... More

The rain stopped, the sun came out and we were kept interested by the plaques explaining the various parts of the Wall tour. A free tour! Well worth it. History explained.

Guided tour brought history to life....as my tour occurred the weekend of Bloody Sunday ( Selma, AL, USA) it tied history in nicely.

We visited Derry for the day and enjoyed it immensely. The highlight was a walking tour of the walls by McCrossan Tours. Our tour guide was John who was both entertaining and informative, and at times managed to talk about the walls whilst walking backwards along the wall! It was a rainy day but so engrossed were we that we... More
