I took a couple of tours in Belfast where the guides'... More

My wife and I made the walking tour with a Martin McCrossan guide on a rainy afternoon but our local guide made it a unique passionate and learning experience. I can recommend it to any visitor going to Derry.

Great tour. John was a fantastic guide he was knowledgable and humorous and very passionate about his city. Was just the right length of time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Fantastic value for money and the cuppa at the end was a bonus. One of the best walking tours I have ever been on.

John did a good tour. Lots of information. A highlight was stopping at the original Presbyterian Church where we were treated to a song 'Wind in the Willows' sung in a nice tenor voice - by an 89 year old! Still in good voice!

Excellent tour - full of fascinating info about Derry and its history, and the best way to learn about the city in my view. Our guide, Dermot was very engaging and knowledgeable, and happy to answer questions - he had a great rapport with the group. You will come away with a much improved sense of the city's geography, and... More

Great walking tour with family around The Walled City, hosted by Garvan who had great passion about his wee city. While a world wind of a trip it covers 1500 years of history, more importantly it points to the future in learning of the past. All of this followed by a cup of tea which was great. We'll be back

Tour Guide Garvin is truly legendDERRY! He has always lived in his beloved city and is very passionate about telling its history to the tourists. He took us all around the city and told us lots of interesting facts about the troubles, the medieval times and even his own life and family. Some moments on the tour were very emotional... More
