“Excellent way to see the city :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Plenty of interesting buildings to admire on both sides of the walls as you make your way around the city, and even a new coffee shop, where you can stop off to rest your weary pins whilst admiring the views. Very informative and interesting information boards along the route, and as its only a mile to walk before you're back where you started, an excellent way to get your bearings in this sprawling city. Be aware though, some fairly steep hills along the way.

“A real treat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Walked the entire circuit with a guide - highly recommend having a guide. A must do if in Derry- Londonderry. Easy walk with lots of possible stop-off points and spectacular views of the city. Follow up with a visit to the Guild Hall and soak up the heritage.

“Martin McCrossan City Walls Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We did this walk as part of an away day with work, it was an absolutely amazing experience and the real highlight of the away day. The tour guide, Martin McCrossan kept the historical comments very interesting and in parts comical. His knowledge and passion of the local area was very impressive. I would recommend this tour to visitors to the city and to residents of the city.
