Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

I really think the 'guide' should be replaced by a leaflet preferably available in other languages and containing accurate information. My husband was becoming increasingly cross with the quality of the commentary and compared it very unfavourably with the informative tour of the City Walls. By the time we were informed that the German submarines had been surrendered after 'D day' he needed extra blood pressure medication.

“An excellent and poignant experience”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We saw this vehicle going around so we decided to have a go having already walked the walls. It proved to be most interesting with our guide, Leonard, making it so. His descriptions of the seige of Derry, the American "invasion" in WWll and the more recent "Troubles" brought it all to life. An excellent well spent half hour.

“Enjoyable & Informative Insight into Derry”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

My partner, sister & I hopped on board this unique tour of Derry on a Sunday morning. This was a good time to see the sights as the shops etc were not open until 1pm & there were not too many crowds out yet.
Leonard our guide was very knowledgeable & the tour was an ideal way to get some insights into this lovely city. Our group learnt alot in only 30mins!!!
Would recommend this tour to first time visitors to Derry.

Reviewed May 20, 2012 via mobile

Tried this out today with my two boys, really enjoyed it and was surprised to learn new facts about my countries history. It was all captured in a 30 minute train ride.Both the driver and Leonard my guide were fantastic, very enthusiastic and you could sense real pride in their city. Will recommend this to others.
