Legends on the North will take you on a VIP guided journey from Belfast to the vibrant city of L/Derry, the second largest city in Northern Ireland, and the only remaining walled city on the island of Ireland.
About the tour
With the historic walls, adorned with cannons from the famous Siege, and thought-provoking murals from The Troubles, there is much to see in the historical ‘Maiden City’. Once in Derry you will be treated to a guided walking tour by Martin McRossan’s City Tours company, ranked no.1 on Tripadvisor for activities in Derry. After your tour of the city you will then be taken to a very special location – the landing site of Amelia Earhart – history’s most famous aviatrix!
Amelia Earhart landed just outside of L/Derry in 1932 to become the first woman to fly the Atlantic solo. With Legends you will not only see the landing site, but also be guided around by an Earhart expert from The Stratus Project – a Northern Irish company searching for the lost plane in which Earhart sadly disappeared in 1937. See www.stratusproject.com for more info on the search for Amelia.
