For €4 you get a great tour of the city with loads of historical background and a free coffee/tea at the end. My guide, forget her name - Martin's daughter, was very good and helpful.

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!
