We had a lovely knowledgeable guide, the tour only covers a small section of the city but we were struck down with some bad weather. It was still very interesting to hear about the history of city

This walking tour is a terrific way to learn about the history of Derry. Both the 1689 siege and the "troubles" including Bloody Sunday. The tour includes parts of the city wall with views of the divided housing, the cathedral and a stop at the...More

There is no need to precook the tour. Just show up. They run every 2 hours (at 10, 12, 2, and 4). Meet at 11 Carlisle Road which is right outside of the Foyleside Shopping mall. You will love it. Enjoy!
