What people are saying about Londonderry / Derry
On the way to Derry, we saw parts of Belfast that the hop on, hop off bus doesn’t visit, including a park divided by a “peace wall”, and a primary school which became the focus of protest as recently as 2000. There’s a scenic drive, partly through mountains, to Derry, a walled city high up, where you get an illuminating walking tour, and guided visit to the Siege Museum, from a loyalist perspective, and then time to explore - I recommend using it to fit in an hour at the Tower Museum on the whole history of Derry. In the nationalist Bogside below the city walls, we went round the fascinating Free Derry Museum (I would have liked an hour there too!), and had Bloody Sunday thoroughly explained, going on a walking tour of where it took place, by the powerful murals and monuments, led by the brother of one of the young men shot dead that day - a very moving experience. Good supper also included. Tommy, the overall tour guide, and driver, was great - really clear, interesting and helpful.
Gleann has been a tremendous guide: so sharp and exhaustive, so deep and human (as his family was directly involved in the Bloody Sunday), so professional and open. There's no better way to understand what happened during the days of the Civil Rights Movement in the late 60's-early 70's. Thank you Gleann for everything, enjoy Naples in the following days and hope we'll meet again somewhere in the future. Greetings from Paolo & Piero!
The tour guide had a deep knowledge of the focus of the tour and provided a most informative and enlightening commentary in a dignified and thoughtful way. He was endlessly patient and helpful with our questions. It was in many ways the highlight of our trip to Northern Ireland
This tour is the best we have ever done, personal insights all the facts made a great impression on our group. Highly recommend this tour for all.
Gleann is a very nice and experienced man. The tour was very intereristing; I recommended it all people go to Derry.
