"The Troubles' tour but make it fun
Amazing tour for anyone looking to explore the city centre and gain some historical knowledge while keeping it a little light-hearted. The tour had a very good mix between Derry Girls lore and Derry's history which is why we chose it.

Gleann was an excellent tour guide and knew so much bout Derry, Derry Girls and Irish history. He was able comfortably answer our questions both about the show and history behind it. Unrelated to the tour, but he recommended multiple bars and restaurants, including Browns in Town which we couldn't have enjoyed more.

I can't recommend the tour more, we enjoyed every minute of it.

More than just Derry Girls!
Aug 2021
I want to start by saying this company is extremely accommodating - we were delayed in unavoidable traffic due to an accident, and our tour guide worked with us for a new start time! We were SO appreciative of this as we would've been upset to miss this tour.

While the Derry Girls series was the main reason we took this tour, it was so interesting to learn more about the history of the city itself as well. My husband and I did not have much knowledge in this area, and we found it fascinating!

Lara was an awesome and knowledgeable guide. She gave us many insights on the history of the area, as well as behind-the-scenes stories from Derry Girls.

I highly recommend this tour to any fan of the series who is also looking to learn more about Derry!

Excellent Derry Girls Tour
Aug 2021 • Family
A really good tour, Gleann was an excellent guide. Really knowledgeable on both the show and Derry. We got a great sense of the context of the show and of the recent and not so recent history of the city. Our 2 teenagers enjoyed it too and they are a hard crowd to please.

The perfect introduction to Derry - history, politics, and humour
Aug 2021
I really recommend taking a guided tour with Gleann, whether you're a native or a visitor. My American cousin wanted to connect with her Irish roots and understand Northern Ireland history and politics. She's also a huge Derry Girls fan. So we combined the two, on a walking tour with Gleann in August 2021. I'm a Derry Girl myself but I learned some new things from him, and we had a great time. He has a degree in Irish history and politics, and really knows his stuff. He's good fun, too. Highly recommended.

Hi Fiona, thank you for your review of your private Derry Girls/ Derry history tour. Glad you all enjoyed it. There's always more pressure with a Derry native on the tour but glad there were a couple of surprises in the history for you. Thanks again.

Underwhelming
Jul 2021
I was expecting to see some interesting stuff from the series eg inside the church where the dog lifted its leg, the school room, the nun’s office etc. There was nothing like that, just a few vague passing references and some quotes from the guide. To be fair the guide did his best but he had nothing to work with. Also the guide had no change to give you when you went to pay at the end. I would say have a look at the excellent mural at badgers bar and leave it at that!

Hi, I think you may have reviewed the wrong tour. We do take in the film locations of both series and you would have visited the church as well as other sites. Our tours are all private not public so there wouldn't have been a need to get change at the end of your tour as the payment would have been prearranged while booking. There is a company that do a public tour that has a Derry Girls tour. If you would let me know what date you did your tour on then I could check my records.

Top Notch, Excellent Tour!
Jul 2021 • Couples
As big fans of the show, we were beyond excited to go on this tour, and so it was the first thing we did upon arrival, which I highly recommend as it gives you your bearings and allows you to appreciate the details for the rest of your visit. Not only was Gleann full of info, he makes it entertaining and engaged in plenty of interesting conversation beyond just a tour guide’s script. We’ve rewatched both seasons through all new eyes, thanks to Gleann! He made it all come to life. Enjoyment guaranteed!

Fabulous tour
Sep 2020 • Couples
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.
