Martin McCrossan - 'Mr Derry'

It was in the early 90’s that businessman Martin McCrossan had a vision that one day the time period known as the ‘troubles’ would come to an end and we would have visitors coming from all over the world to hear about our history and experience our culture.  Martin always had a great sense of passion for the city he was born and raised in and the people in it.  Through this, he started Martin McCrossan City Tours as a hobby alongside his other business.  This hobby over time became a full time role and Martin then decided to focus solely on his passion – tour guiding. He sadly passed at the young age of 52 in 2015 and following his passing he was hailed ‘Mr Derry’ by local councillors and patrons of the city.  The business continues to thrive to this day under the leadership of Martin’s daughter and Blue Badge Tourist Guide, Charlene.  Martin McCrossan City tours is the ONLY Tourism NI Approved 5 star walking tour in the city.
