Absolutely amazing tour with John on the 12pm tour. His knowledge and passion for his city is unreal. Tells you so much as you take in the beauty of the city. He even tailors the tour to the audience a little bit as well. I...More

We were part of a bus tour that went for a stroll with Garvin, and he was awesome! So funny, so informative and even gave us a song or two. Thanks so much for a very enjoyable tour!

We had John and the tour was super interesting, informative and we covered all the key sites. Do not come to Derry without doing this tour. In fact, the tour itself is worth the trip to Derry!

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!
