We had an incredible tour by a very friendly and knowledgeable gentleman that we unfortunately cannot remember the name (but had a distinctive pink iPad he was using if anyone can trace him that way!). He gave us a detailed neutral account of all the troubles, took us to the murals and memorial gardens and answered all the questions we had! We couldn't ask for a better tour, especially a neutral one, where we could make our own opinion from what we were being told and shown. 100% recommend this tour to anyone visiting Belfast to learn about this very important part of history.

An interesting, balanced tour on the subject matter. Is clearly a tour that could take a lot longer, so with the time provided, some key points were shown/advised/discussed. Our driver Darren was a friendly, informative and engaging tour guide and would highly recommend him for future users interested in taking the tour.
