Just back from a girlie weekend in derry and whilst there we decided to do a tour of the city. Although there were a few different tour operators the girls selling the tickets for this tour were really friendly and seemed to know what they...More

Decided to take this trip as we had really enjoyed the Belfast bus and found them unbaised and witty. The bus had just left and the ticket seller told us it left on the hour every hour. We shopped and returned having to wait to...More

Friday 21st September. The 1100 ran (so they had my money) - was planning to do one round trip then a few shorter hops. 1200 and 1300 never bothered running, evidently they only have one bus and decided to take it away for maintenance right...More

The tour has little to offer very disappointing the bus was all steamed up so could not see much. The guy selling the tickets was more interested in his mobile phone and smoking a cigarette.

I took this tour in August 2018. The tour was fine and covered all the main point of interest. I was however outraged to find the audio on the tour was given by an English man. In this troubled city where the majority oppose British...More

Yesterday 8th September turned into an absolute farce. Upon arriving at the Tourist Centre (stop 1) purchased our tickets then to be told that the ONE bus running and due at 11:30am was going to be approximately half an hour late. That was fine and...More

If you are pressed for time, and would like a quick tour, then this is a good solution. Personally, I thought the history side was a little shallow, and would have preferred more, but given the fact that it is an hour long, this may...More

This is a one sided talk of the city. I would be under the impression that there was only Catholics killed in derry and they all live in peace now? As for the part about ferry & the contraceptive

Having read very mixed reviews here I have to say we found the tour very informative and at times quite amusing. We did go round the roundabouts a few times, presumably to keep the journey synchronised with the commentary. We were accompanied by some Derry...More

I have to totally agree with Ricky F in his assessment of the quality of this tour compared to Belfast tour. The major complaint I have is that the commentary was from a tape and too many times the synchronisation with the attraction was well...More

Not really a hop-on hop-off bus as it only does the circuit every hour so if you hop off you’ve got an hour to occupy before being picked up. With the possible exception of Free Derry, the only places where an hour could be usefully...More
