Derrie Danders Walking Tours

Contact details

Our mission is to provide informative and entertaining historical tours of interest to both visitors and local residents.

We strive to be “politically neutral” and “historically accurate”.

My tours cover the whole history of the city from BC to modern times but deliberately do not focus on the detailed events of “the Troubles” of 1969-1994.

Due to the wealth of historical information that exists, the biggest challenge has been not what to include, but what to leave out.

A young person’s treasure hunt has been developed and is available for the pre-designed tours options ( grateful thanks to the Friends of the Derry Walls for their kind assistance)

We are steadily developing our contacts with other local tourist organisations and providers, and will continue to work as part of a connected and collaborative network for the benefit of visitors to the area. Currently we are able to offer tour add-on visits to a number of attractions – please ask at time of booking.

The name “Derrie” comes from the original spelling of the name of the city in English, in old maps and manuscripts. The term “Dander” is local speaking slang for a stroll or walk.

Customised Day Trips out of the city can also be arranged for small groups – please see alternative website for more information.
