We just did a walking tour with John McNaulty, absolutely wonderful! Such a proud local to have as a guide. He delivered a huge amount of information in a thoroughly interesting and enthusiastic way. Excellent value for money. If we come back again we would definitely do another tour with Martin McCrossan city tours and with John if possible! Well done!

WOW!! Be sure to get the guys in the yellow jackets.

The best walking tour I've done. Our guide Garvin was an absolute darling. He experienced Bloody Sunday and “the troubles” that ravaged his city for decades after and told his stories with passion and emotion but without bias or contempt. At one point I found myself moved to tears. This man is truly proud of his city and clearly loved showing visitors around Derry. A must do if in Derry (make sure you find the guides wearing the yellow jackets).

Took this tour recently with John(?) and it was just brilliant. He gave us a terrific insight into Derry's eventful history, with a bit of humour thrown in to balance the unavoidable, darker aspects. The strength of this tour however is its unbiased, even-handed dispensation of the facts. We got a fair account of the history. (I have taken similar tours in Belfast and come away with a sour taste in my mouth from the dreadful bias depending on which guide you happened to get!). So well done John - you're doing a great job and at only £4 a head with a cup of tea thrown in at the end. Fantastic, thank you.

We did this tour organised through Vagabond, another wonderful tour company. This walking tour was entertaining, informative and enthusiastic. John was helpful, considerate of a delicate area in history and incredibly easy to follow. He was clearly proud of his city, and very well informed. He answered questions considerately and was a wonderful ambassador for his city and country. Thank you for an excellent tour, recommended to all!
