This walking tour was unique for several reasons! just to point out a few; Firstly the guides explain the entire history of Derry in an interesting interactive way. Right back to the ancient city, the conflict to the present day peace process! Secondly, i have been on this tour many times and each guide puts there own unique take on... More

The walls have been beautifully restored and its a beautiful walk to go round the Derry City walls! You manage to get some extensive views on to the bog side and you can easily imagine what it must have looked like in the 70's - thank fully those days are over!

I'm going to keep this short, because one should experience this on his/her own...and my words does this city no justice. Let me just say that that I would take the "guided tour", then experience it unguided. The wall takes you along the "Loyalist" Westbank quarter as well as the "Republican" Bogside area. Along the way you'll encounter a beautiful... More

Best visited on one of Martin Macrossan's tours, but if you just have an hour to spare, go for a walk around the walls and soak up the history from the informative tourist information panels. A very enjoyable way to see the city.

From Bishop's Gate at 10, 12, 2pm and 4pm lasting and hour this tour was the best of many enjoyable things we did in Derry/Londonderry. The guide was erudite and very amusing. Highly recommend. It was the best £$ I've spent in a long time (includes a free coffee or tea).

Just like to dander around hopping on and off the walls, for someone who has never been to the city this might sound strange but there are lots of little cafes, pubs, craft village, main shopping centers all along the Walled walking route

The walls are open to walk on top of. There are good historical plaques, and views over Free Derry that can give you an idea as to why the British Army used the walls as part of their control of the city. Derry is peaceful now, but highly segregated and tensions are just beneath the surface. Walking the walls is... More
