If you are coming to Derry, and want to take a tour, take this one. Our guide Gleann was very informative and highly knowledgeable on the history of his City from its founding in 1603 (and before), right up to the modern day. Taking in the City Walls, and Derry Girls locations, we were then guided around Free Derry, the Murals, and the Bogside area, for a comprehensive and very personal tour of the history that lead to the Civil Rights protests, the 'Troubles', and then the Good Friday Agreement. Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, we were unable to visit some of Gleanns Museum, pub and music recommendations on this occasion, but hopefully we will be able to on our next visit.

If you are a fan of Derry Girls you must do this tour when visiting Derry. Gleann our tour guide was brilliant. He took us to all the places featured in the programme but also gave us a lot of the history of Derry itself. It is done at a leisurely pace and Gleann was happy to answer any questions. A very enjoyable 90 minutes. Thank you.
