Finola delivered a brilliant, tailor-made tour of Derry. We were a group of 12 fairly serious visitors, most from England, and we had asked for a tour that would highlight the recent political background and events. Finola kindly arranged for the Museum of Free Derry to be specially opened on a Sunday and then conducted us around the Bogside, movingly... More

Finola and Eilis brought our 51 pupils on an excellent tour of the Walls of Derry. The group are all preparing to sit Leaving Certificate History (state secondary school senior exams) and already had a solid baseline knowledge of the city's troubled history. However, the tour and the astute observations and commentary by our guides was excellent. We walked, talked... More

Eilish kept me enthralled with stories from darkest history to the present day. Never did she just trot out facts and figures. I can't believe how much I learned yet how fast the time went. Eilish even snuck us into an archaelogical dig. i hadnt planend to go back to Derry but now I definitely want to.

Tours 'n Trails are the company to go to when you are in Derry and want the best tour guides in town. Finola was our personal guide when walking the walls and her passion and pride in the city were evident to see - even more so as Derry is the City of Culture 2013. It looked so beautiful !... More

Finola and Eilish took a tour with 25 young people that I was working with for around two hours. The group really enjoyed the experience. Our guides knew the history of the city inside out, and had lots of interesting stops throughout the trip. I was really pleased that our guides made it easy for our group to ask questions.... More
