About Derrie Danders Walking and Audio Tours
My profession as an accountant has allowed me to travel extensively in Europe, and during my work trips,I always tried to learn about the local culture and history of the places I visited, and a walking tour from a local guide has been a must. From my own travels, I know what makes a good experience for a visitor,and I seek to deliver this on my tours. I cover the history of the city from its origins to now, but deliberately do not focus on the recent difficult period of "the Troubles" .

Our guide David presented a complex history with enthusiasm and clarity. The two hour walking tour was professional, friendly and informative. He was happy to answer questions, take pictures and take time to explain in more detail when there were things of particular interest. I cannot recommend highly enough. Dont book cheaper tours where you are herded around . Spend a little more on a skilled historian

We did a private tour with David last Thursday - it was a perfect way of offering us an introduction to this beautiful city that has such an interesting history. We were lucky, in a way, to take advantage of a quiet year for tourism in that we were not part of a group but had David all to ourselves. We got to walk the walls and saw the Fountain and Bogside areas, as well as a final walk across the peace bridge. The time absolutely flew and David is so informative about his city and gave us a couple of recommendations for places to get lunch too! It's a shame we didn't give ourselves time to spend the afternoon here and stay for the night - we will just have to come back! Thanks very much David from Elaine and Peter Co. Clare

David took us on a really good 2 hour tour, at a relaxed pace. He knows his stuff but its not all facts and dates, he tells lots of interesting stories. There are so many layers to the history of Derry. This tour would be a good way to start a visit as David suggests some other things you could explore by yourself afterwards.

The history of this city is complex and rich. To begin to appreciate it you need an expert guide. David is your man. With his expert knowledge and communication skills he showed us all its facets from its most historic to present day.
