We took the tour with Garvan and he was fantastic. He was so informative and really lived the history of the city,also did it with plenty of Irish black humour. If you're in Derry make this tour a priority.

A fantastic tour for anyone visiting Derry. Martin McCrossan tours were recommended by our hotel. Our guide, Garvin, must be known as "Mr Derry" - unbelievably knowledgeable, passionate and proud of his city. A must do experience.

Our tour guide Garvin (I'm not sure how to spell it sorry!) with Martin Mccrossan walking tours was absolutely amazing. He knew everything there was to know about Derry and then some! He was very animated and obviously very passionate about what he was telling us. Everything he told us about, especially the unrest in Northern Ireland in the 1970's,... More

We both throughly enjoyed our walking tour. A different way to see the city and the weather was excellent which helped!! Our guide was informative yet was able to keep our attention with his sense of humour.

John our guide was a natural. He was so enthusiastic and knowledgable about his town and gave the truth about its history, 'warts and all' and his own brand of Irish wit made it all the more enjoyable. Highly Recommended
