I would highly recommend a walking tour of the Derry City Walls. Ruairi is an engaging and knowledgeable guide who provides personal insights into what it was like growing up during The Troubles. There are plenty of murals to see in addition to the walls themselves. Well worth doing regardless of whether it’s raining or shining!

Rory was an incredible tour guide that has spent the majority of his childhood in the bog section of Derry.
He spent 2 hours with us explaining the history and political strife of the beautiful city.
Very knowledgeable and passionate.

Absolutely Excellent! Ruairi guided us around the ancient Walls of Derry. At each Gate to the City, the history of Derry unfolded from a spectrum of viewpoints. Ruairi's knowledge of geographic, political, religious and historic influences on the Derry was informed, balanced and impressive. His first hand memories of growing up during The Troubles helped us better understand the past and look forward with optimism to Derry's future.

This was a really great tour I took during my study abroad trip. Our tour guide was very well informed, and also interested in forming a personal relationship with us, which made the trip feel very comfortable. He was more than willing to answer any of our questions, and also provided some great personal narratives that added to an understanding of the town’s history. He speaks and reads Gaelic, which was really cool, and speaks very clearly and audibly; he’s very easy to listen to.

Ruairi gave a well planned tour which covered the history of Derry from the Middle Ages to the present day. He was extremely knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a fair and balanced historical tour of Derry before, during and after the Troubles.

Rauiri was fantastic, and this walking tour of Derry is an absolute must do while in Northern Ireland. His knowledge, personal experience,and humor definitely set this walking tour apart. I learned so much and am humbled learning about the Troubles that the Irish have faced, and stand in awe of their resilience. Thank you Rauiri!

We had a fascinating private tour that was informative, historical and scenic around Free Derry and the walled city. Our guide was prompt, friendly and engaging. We felt like Ruari really wanted to share his story. He told us what it was like to live in war zone as a child and provided perspective from both sides. We highly recommend booking the tour. You can’t be disappointed!
