Went on this tour with very passionate host John. We walked for just over an hour while he narrated fascinating bits about Derrys history. We walked on the walls and he explained the murals as well.

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!
