I asked Finola to arrange a tour of the Bogside and Walls of Derry last weekend for a group of friends from England and Wales.It was a reunion of flat mates from the late 60s and early 70s plus partners.
We had a brilliant time,she spent twice as long as the usual tour guides with us!finishing off with free tea and coffee in Benningans pub,which had music on that Sat night.On the Sunday she tailored a bus tour of Donegal for us,fitting in with our time schedule perfectly,as many were flying out that night , highly recommend this personalised tour service,real quality,loads banter and craic.Much nicer than more corporate tours I have experienced!

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 describing the history of this area. Then we climbed up to the city walls, where she showed us the principal sites and described their historical context. Finola is a very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining guide, with real local knowledge, who kept us enthralled for over two hours. It was a highlight of the holiday and very reasonably priced.

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. However, the tour and the astute observations and commentary by our guides was excellent. We walked, talked and listened for a thoroughly engrossing morning. Thank you.

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.

Was totally absorbed by my personal tour of Derry with Eilish as my guide. Would and will do the tour again, and would highly recommend it!
