After learning about Derry's history at the Tower Museum, this was the perfect way to experience a little bit of medieval Derry. It was also an interesting bit of living history, since on the weekend Derry teens seem to like to hang out on the wall (not doing anything too unruly or intimidating). We also sat on the wall and watched a rock concert in the pavilion below one Saturday afternoon.

Excellent walking tour - got all the history delivered with a great balance between professionalism and humour! I learnt more about Derry/Londonderry in one hour than I have in the rest of my life!! Would most definitely recommend this tour

I live close to Derry/Londonderry, and enjoy frequent visits to this beautiful city, and especially its walls. Well worth the hilly walk, the walls tell the story of a city steeped in history, and afford spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and homes. The many vantage points afford rare photo opportunities. Take at least a couple of hours exploring the many understated and unmarked surprises of this wonderful place and explore the little nooks and crannies that the citizens take so much for granted. Chat to the locals - they are a great source of information and have a welcoming smile for all visitors.

Professional, honest, clear and concise information with a tonne of Derry humour added in! Young people in our group just loved Garvin our tour guide and will definitely be bringing my family back to Derry for this tour.

We took a guided tour with John as Martin was with another group. We were the only two on the tour so it was very personal. It is an excellent way to get an idea of the history of Derry and some understanding of why things are the way they are!
