Blustery, rainy, but nothing dimmed the knowledge or enthusiasm of guide Tony of Martin McCrossan walking tours. He was superb - insightful, gracious and delightful. I'd covered The Troubles in the city in the 1970s as an American reporter, had returned in the 1980s and...More

There is no need to precook the tour. Just show up. They run every 2 hours (at 10, 12, 2, and 4). Meet at 11 Carlisle Road which is right outside of the Foyleside Shopping mall. You will love it. Enjoy!
