A popular Derry tourist trail has been hailed as one of the best city walks on these islands on a national retail website.

Martin McCrossan’s guided tour of Derry is included in the “10 best UK city walks” on the Tesco Living website.

The site, which describes Derry as a “visually fascinating, historic place”, says Martin’s tours are a perfect way to see the city.

The reviewer says: “If you want to get an expert’s overview, book in for one of Martin McCrossan’s guided city tours. The tour guides have a wealth of knowledge on Irish emigration to America, as well as local history, so you’ll receive a fascinating history lesson whilst on your scenic stroll.”

Martin, who earlier this year scooped the prestigious Tourism Hero Award at the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards, is said to be “impressed” with the latest accolade.

Among the other walks to make it into the Tesco Living chart are Bath, Nottingham, Exeter, York, London, Manchester, Cardiff, Chester and Edinburgh.

Many tourists regularly remark that, because Derry is so compact, Martin’s walking tours are the best way to take in the city’s rich history and famous locations.

Over the years, Martin and his team have looked after many VIPs, corporate visitors and private groups.

The stars Martin has hosted include film favourite Will Ferrell, TV and radio personalities Nicholas Parsons and Esther Rantzen and singing sensation Susan Boyle.
