I only recently took a walk around the Derry Walls. I should have done this years ago. It was an excellent experience. You see Derry from every vantage point. Highly recommended that you take a guided tour. Burn off a few pints of guinness.

Get above it all by taking a walk around the entire old city via the walls which still stand to this day. Stop along the way to admire the views, visit the museum, or a cafe for a bite to eat. Dance to the tune of a piano accordian or catch up on what's happening with a friendly local. Loved... More

I have visited Derry often as I am from co Derry thought I live some 20 miles away from the city. I decided for the first time to make the journey with visitors how came from England for the weekend and thought it would be something different to do. It was a great success, and everyone enjoyed the experience.our guide... More

It's not hard and there are lots of sights to see and opportunities to get off for refreshments. Take your camera.

Well worth taking at our to learn more of the history of the walls and city. Very cold on the day we still and it was very interesting. Without a tour you would miss out on background knowledge.

Did the 10am tour yesterday with Mr McCrossan himself. Was a fantastic way to learn a great deal about the city! Would definitely recommend it to everyone! The tour guides are brilliant - so knowledgeable and informative. A lovely touch at the end getting a lovely warm cup of tea in Java Coffee House!!

My guide on the Walls of Derry was Bill, a Glaswegian and an actor in his spare time (it shows!) A very different, yet another enjoyable tour. Bill seems to know everybody in the city and this helps the overall atmosphere. The view down from the western walls is special. Here you see the Bogside far below and Creggan behind... More

If your ever visit Derry then a tour of the walls is a must! You don't even need to do this with a guide as there is plenty of historic information signposted on the walls. Good tip: stop off at Fitzroys for tea on your travels, beside the foyle side.
