No trip to Derry is complete without going on the Free Derry Tour with Aiden. He was just incredible. He told a fascinating story in a powerful way and he was definitely the highlight of our trip to Derry.

As part of our Paddywagon tour, we had a walking tour with Stephen who is a local. He gave us great information about the political history of the area, showed us the murals and we went up and walked the old walls around the town center. Good opportunity and good information that makes you appreciate your freedom.

This is something that you must do if you visit Derry, or even make a point of visiting Derry to do this tour. The tour guide, John, told the story of the Bogside and Bloody Sunday from his own personal experience. Cannot say enough about this experience. The world needs to hear these stories.

My Boyfriend and I both did the tour today, we are both from Belfast and didn't really know that much about Derry. The tour was a real eye-opener and we both came away feeling very enriched :D

The bogside will forever stay in my mind. The horror that took place in that part of Derry may not be forgotten. Our guide gave us an explanation of the murals. This part of the world is really history being made as you walk through it. I hope this can be a lesson to the world. Repression doesn't work!!

It gave a different slant so to speak to the traditional tours of Derry rather than broad based
