Highlights
  • A private guide makes for a fully personal way to explore Derry
  • Walk the entire perimeter of Derry’s 17th-century city walls
  • Get an overview of top Derry landmarks during the tour
  • Hear details from the city’s long history from your guide
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a time and place of your choosing—a private tour means you have convenience and flexibility on your side—and set off on a walk around the entire circumference of Derry’s 17th-century walls. Northern Ireland’s second-largest city, and the only completely walled city in all of Ireland, Derry has thousands of years of history behind it. During your private tour, your guide shares stories from the city’s past, from the earliest settlements thousands of years ago to its monastic period and the series of wars that marked its history. As you go, you also see the wall’s sights—including its seven gates and 24 hand-restored cannons—and admire views overlooking the city. The tour ends when you walk the length of the wall, at a time and place that is convenient to your itinerary.
