We thought Derry was lovely and we enjoyed the history, architecture, music scene and amazing food. The people were also very happy and friendly. They have the politest car drivers I have ever come across - they give way to pedestrians wherever you go. This was all brought even more to life by Dermot on the walking tour round the... More

Our tour guide was Jarvin. He was fantastic. He gave us such an incredible and informative tour. We learnt a lot about Derry's history and although very sad at times, Jarvin still made the tour enjoyable. Would highly recommend this company and Jarvin who was the kindest, friendliest man!

(hehehe) the knowledge imparted with humour at times and great sadness at others was a fascination for me as i learned despite... More

Just spent a very enjoyable 1hr 15 min in the company of our guide Dermot, an extremely informative, interesting and witty tour. Our first trip to Legenderry City on a social capacity and we loved the place. No visit here is complete without taking the tour, at £4 per person its embarrassingly cheap. Highly recommended and Dermot is a credit... More

Fantastic tour of a beautiful city. The tour covers the city's troubled past with honesty and sympathy. It also shows the promise that the people of the city have for the future. We were guided by Garvan, he was great, his love and passion for the city is contagious. Highly recommended!
