What to expect
  • Meet your guide at a time and place of your choosing—a private tour means you have convenience and flexibility on your side—and set off on a walk around the entire circumference of Derry’s 17th-century walls. Northern Ireland’s second-largest city, and the only completely walled city in all of Ireland, Derry has thousands of years of history behind it. During your private tour, your guide shares stories from the city’s past, from the earliest settlements thousands of years ago to its monastic period and the series of wars that marked its history. As you go, you also see the wall’s sights—including its seven gates and 24 hand-restored cannons—and admire views overlooking the city. The tour ends when you walk the length of the wall, at a time and place that is convenient to your itinerary.

Fantastic - must do!!
Aug 2021 • Family
Gleann was a fantastic guide. So knowledgeable and friendly. He was so good with the kids and answered all their questions and had a bit of craic with them.
He also went at a pace to suit us as we had a pram and my father who is not long after an operation with us.
Really grateful and would definitely want to do another tour with him.

Best walking tour of my life
Oct 2019 • Friends
Our stay in Derry was more or less a coincidence and thanks to TripAdvisor we found this gem of a tour. Gleann our guide walked us through centuries of Derry particularly rich history. He gave interesting inside into Derry’s troubled relationship with the English especially and we’d recommend this tour to anyone but especially those with a keen interest in history. We’d advice to pick some warm clothes for the tour for it is quite windy.
