We contacted Martin to organise this as part of a corporate event. Having to organise this on company time the communication was efficient and was easily handled online and Martin was, as expected, extremely professional. The tour itself was informative and fun, keeping in mind that all the participants were from the surrounding area. We were also under pressure as... More

Thank you Martin for a brilliant morning! Although it was bucketing down, it didn't diminish Martins enthusiasm and passion for the city and it's past. .. Good or bad. A great tour that i will be recommending.

Thank you,Garvin,for guiding us through the visit with such knowledge, kindness,wit and passion. It cannot be easy to deliver tbe message as if it was the first time or as if we were your first audience ever.What a delight. So, if you come to this city you cannot miss the guys in the yellow shirts. More than highly recommended.

Went on the tour of the city walls of Derry with Mrs & two teenagers. John was our tour guide and he was great, informative and enthusiastic. The tour takes a little over an hour, not too far on a leisurely walk and finished off with a cup of tea. Even the teenagers enjoyed it, need i say more !!... More

myself, my husband and our 10 year old son did the 12 noon tour with Garvin on friday and what an experience it was. we learned so much about the history of this beautiful city from someone who clearly loved his hometown. Garvins descriptive vocabulary made this tour truly interesting and he even managed to caputre the imagination of our... More

With work I visit most cities in the world but never have I've never been on a tour where the balance has been so brilliantly presented. It's easy to have the passion especially with what Derry has experienced over the years, but to have it delivered in such a balanced, yet factual way was simply outstanding. I simply cannot recommend... More

The tour is a very easy walk, yes there are a frw steps, but once on the... More
