My daughter & I were fortunate enough to have taken this tour on the 8th of September. In addition to that we had Charlene as our guide. This young lady was just an incredible source of information. No matter how many questions our group asked she was spot on. For me personally, it was her love for her city and... More

An hour (or so) walking tour of Derry City Walls with a natural, very interesting, history infused guide- we went with my daughter-in-law, a lifelong resident & she learnt plenty of new details of the chequered history of this amazing city. Very well worth booking a tour or turning up at the noted time- to top it all, the price... More

Dermot, the guide, made the tour informative, fun, moving and just the best value tour we have enjoyed for some time. Its well worth participating if your are visiting Derry for a short time and wish to get a potted history.

Great tour with Dermott. Very knowledgeable and a bit of a larrikin. Can also "sing". Great background on the history of the city with a walk on the walls and overlooking the Bogside. Bit of history on important churches and cathedrals.

I work as a tour guide and came to Derry for research before coming again with clients. I did this tour twice with the same guide - John. He was fantastic. Witty, incisive and balanced' was my impression. He had the group enthralled. I wanted to give my client some local insight and this was brilliant. I highly recommend City... More

I had a few friends visiting from england and thought what better than a walk on the walls. Our tour guide, john was so engaging. He covered so many different topics and there was a good mix of older and more recent history, especially enjoyed the troubles section! Not only that but he had the whole tour in stitches with...

We had John and he was an even friendlier version of Sir Richard Attenborough! We learnt so much on our trip round the walls and were entertained and informed in equal measure. We would thoroughly recommend this to all visitors to this lovely city....

We've been to Londonderry a number of times but decided to try this tour to plug the gaps in our knowledge of the city. John, our guide, was superb! Extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and proud of the city, and all the many stories he told were delivered in a passionate but objective way. Absolutely fantastic value at only £4 each -... More
