    An amazing experience all round. Learned so much from our tour guide Jackie in the space of 2 hours. He was so knowledgeable and passionate in his story telling and first hand accounts. We came in knowing very little of the troubles, or at least we only knew things from what we had been told, and Jackie started teaching us as if we were a blank canvas. We were shown the troubles from both sides with zero bias. The murals were beautiful and haunting, and the peace wall, gateway points, and cages over gardens are so powerful when you see them for the first time. Amazing tour and that I highly recommend. Thank you Jackie!

    We had the most fantastic time with Jackie as our tour guide. We hadn’t known rarely anything about Northern Irish history until Jackie gave us an insight and helped us all understand it better. He was extremely friendly, helpful and helped us have the best time. Very neutral, gave us a perspective from both sides. I really recommend this tour! - Milly R and co, Portsmouth

    Had a wonderful evening exploring the history of a beautiful city narrated by our driver Michael. Went into great detail about the history of the troubles and gave a great insight into where Belfast is today. Couldn’t recommend this tour enough for anybody looking to find out more about Belfast from all walks of life. Michael was very welcoming and felt like he went above and beyond with his tour. 10/10.

    We had a fantastic tour of the murals. This is by far the best modern history tour we’ve been on to date. Bittersweet with a feeling of hope and a better understanding than I’ve ever had.
