I met the real Derry Girls. Although I have done David's audio tours before, I had not done one of the real ones so it was great to get the opportunity last month when he did trial tours for locals to experience his new women's themed history tour Influential Women of the Walled City. I forgot to leave this review at the time and I know the tour is now available to buy. Although I have done another themed Derry Girls tour from another company available on a Saturday, and I enjoyed it at the time, with hindsight, I now find it very limited and one dimensional, compared to David's tour. His tour covers the real Derry Girls, ie the history of real people, but he does cover the fictional ones too. I wish David well for his new tour and hope he gets lots of visitors to book it and hear this wonderful history. Many thanks to David for a very informative tour of Influential Women of the Walled City. I would recommend this tour as it gives a great Insight into the many generations of Influential Women in the City
