What a super day we had in this friendly Maiden City! Finola was a great tour guide - very friendly and approachable regarding unanswered questions. She has a great knowledge of the history of the city. I would definitely recommend the tour of the walls.

Finola led a group of us on a tour of Bogside and the Walls of Derry. It was an excellent tour, very informative but casual and fun at the same time. Finola is very knowledgeable on the history of Derry and Northern Ireland. She brought us to a lovely little craft area at the end. The pace was very relaxed... More

Finola delivered a brilliant, tailor-made tour of Derry. We were a group of 12 fairly serious visitors, most from England, and we had asked for a tour that would highlight the recent political background and events. Finola kindly arranged for the Museum of Free Derry to be specially opened on a Sunday and then conducted us around the Bogside, movingly... More

Finola and Eilis brought our 51 pupils on an excellent tour of the Walls of Derry. The group are all preparing to sit Leaving Certificate History (state secondary school senior exams) and already had a solid baseline knowledge of the city's troubled history.

Eilish kept me enthralled with stories from darkest history to the present day. Never did she just trot out facts and figures. I can't believe how much I learned yet how fast the time went. Eilish even snuck us into an archaelogical dig. i hadnt planend to go back to Derry but now I definitely want to.

Tours 'n Trails are the company to go to when you are in Derry and want the best tour guides in town. Finola was our personal guide when walking the walls and her passion and pride in the city were evident to see - even more so as Derry is the City of Culture 2013. It looked so beautiful !... More
