Owner description: Michael Cooper offers fantastic guided tours of Derry and the wider north of Ireland which are great value and extremely informative. Michael Cooper is the only Blue Badge guide in Derry-the highest accreditation in the guiding industry. Michaels tours are available on foot or by private vehicle hire. He also offers step on guides for coaches whether half day, full day or all Ireland. Michael guarantees the best rates in the industry-for example a private hire tour of the Giants Causeway is only £120 for up to four people. Tour options include Derry (including the city walls and Bogside murals), the Causeway Coast (including the Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distlliery and Carrick a rede ropebridge), Glens of Antrim, Sligo, Fermanagh, Belfast, Armagh, the Sperrins as well as trips to Inishowen, the Donegal Highlands, south Donegal (including Slieve League seacliffs) Arranmore island and Dublin. Michael specialises in political tours which describe the origins and events of the conflict in the north of Ireland as well as the peace process. He is also a published historian and elected representative in the local government in Derry giving him a unique insight into the ongoing peace process and the ability to organise Q &A's with ex-prisoners and colleagues involved in the peace process negootiations.

“Derry Blue Badge Guide”
Reviewed November 8, 2010

I work with a number of cross community groups and as such we do tours of Derry / Londonderry on a regular basis.We have had a number of tours of Derry/ Londonderry over the years with different tour guides but I have found Micheal to be the best. He is very knowledgeable of the city and surrounding counties. I would highly recommend the Blue Badge tours to individuals, groups, visitors or locals.

“Excellent experience”
Reviewed October 10, 2010

The tour shows all areas of Derry, (the Catholic Bogside and the Protestant Waterside), the sight of the Bloody Sunday massacre and other murders and also the Museum of Free Derry. We were guided by Michael, whose historical knowledge of the 'troubles' was excellent. It is difficult to know where to go when visiting a new city, and also to avoid the tourist traps, so I highly recommend this tour to give you all of the information you need, ably guided by friendly and knowledgeable people.
