Jim was really knowledgeable and gave an unbiased view of both sides of the story. He was happy to answer any question and I feel we now have a much greater understanding of the troubles. He would sometimes not directly answer a question, but instead provide information to allow you to make your own mind up. He made us think more deeply about the issues facing these communities in years gone by, but also now In current times. At times, really moving and my husband and I have discussed many of the issues raised since the tour.

Very informative about all aspects of Belfast.The titanic Harland and Wolfe the troubles.Everything was covered in our journey around Belfast in a light hearted way with a few jokes thrown in.

Our driver Cecil was very knowledgeable about both sides of the conflict and remained impartial throughout the tour. And all round Nice guy, nothing was too much bother.
