Excellent guide with time to stop off at interesting points, for me the churches and cathedral, fascinating insight to life on both sides and hope for peace!

Finola and Eilish took a tour with 25 young people that I was working with for around two hours. The group really enjoyed the experience. Our guides knew the history of the city inside out, and had lots of interesting stops throughout the trip. I was really pleased that our guides made it easy for our group to ask questions.... More

As a frequent visitor to Ireland/Northern Ireland from Canada in the late seventies, and early eighties, during "the troubles", I'd skirted around Derry City, but I had never entered the city limits. Since that time the city had intrigued me and I felt that I'd like to get to know it better. During a trip back in 2005, Derry City... More

As a group of young students from all over studying in Derry at the moment we organised a tour to get to know the place on a very cold December evening. We had a fantastic well guided tour of the Walls and down into the famous Bogside from Finola from "Tours and Trails" and learned loads about the history of... More

We had an amazing time on our tour around the Wall with Finola as our guide. Having studied about the history of Derry briefly some years back, I was very interested in visually putting the facts and the city together. We definitely got what we wanted, and then some. Very informative - the sort of things you'd never learn from... More

This walking tour of the Walled City was an amazing experience: history brought to life by a truly excellent guide - Finola Faller. We were a group of three involved in the Clipper 11/12 stopover and, for all of us, it was our first visit to NI. We hardly noticed the inclement weather due to the lively presentation of the...

I have just completed the very best guided tour I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. My guide Eilish was not just knowledgeable, but has the personality to make the tour extra special. She was able to place me in the locations and situations that I have read so much about, and brought to me an understanding of the... More
