I recently did the city walking tour including the Bogside with Shamrocker Adventures and Garvin was our guide. Having done many walking tours all over the world this is THE BEST walking tour I have ever done, the knowledge, passion for his city and his likability was second to none. Garvin is clearly a popular man as everyone in the... More

We took this tour on a busy Saturday afternoon in Derry. Dermot was our guide. The tour is both informative, really interesting, entertaining and great fun. Dermot was a fantastic guide and kept us spellbound with Derry's historical past and local stories from recent history. I thoroughly recommend this tour - it is a must do when in Derry.

During our tour of Ireland we stopped in Derry for a day and a night. It was recommended to us that we do a walking tour of Derry with City Tours and I am incredibly glad we did. Our guide Gavin (Garvin?) was an absolute wealth of knowledge, providing us with historical and personal accounts of the city's recent history.... More

I have taking this city tour of the Derry city walls twice, once in 2014 and again June 2016. It was a pleasant walk along the city walls. John, our guide, did a most informative talk while walking backwards! His talk is non-partisan-he give both sides of the conflict equal time. He brings the history to life. You even get... More

An add on excursion with my Shamrocker Adventure Tour turned out to be such a learning and entertaining experience! Our guide Garvin was so passionate and truthful about the troubles and his personal experience that it really gave you the full understanding of what happened and how they are moving forward. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as it is... More
