Political, Historical, Social and Cultural Tours of Derry City and Surrounding Areas
Welcome to Derry Blue Badge Guide
Award winning tours of Derry and the north of Ireland
Tours covering all aspects of the North’s recent ‘Troubles’ and peace process are a speciality, covering topics such as the outbreak of the Troubles in 1968, the Battle of the Bogside, internment, Bloody Sunday, the 1981 Hunger Strikes and the developing peace process. These tours cover areas such as the Bogside in Derry, west Belfast and south Armagh and are available for both visitors and schools and colleges studying the conflict.
As well as the political tours – we offer detailed general tours of Derry, including the world famous 17th century Derry Walls. The only intact walled city in Britain and Ireland, they were the largest single project during the 17th century Ulster plantation and were famously defended during the ‘Siege of Derry’ of 1688/9. General tours of Derry also cover Christian history, World War II and the story of emigration. We can also assist those interested in doing genealogical research during their visit to Ireland. All of the above are available as either walking tours, by coach or also as taxi tours in our fully insured private hire vehicles.
Derrybluebadgeguide.com also offers both full and half-day tours of all regions of the north of Ireland by coach or taxi tour. Popular areas include Belfast, the Giants Causeway coast (including Bushmills distillery, the Mussenden Temple, Dunluce castle and the Carrick-a-Rede ropebridge), the Antrim Glens and Donegal with a number of options on offer including the Inishowen peninsula, Donegal Highlands, South Donegal and Arranmore Island. Tours of Armagh, Fermanagh, Sligo and the Sperrins including the Ulster American Folk Park are also a speciality.
