Martin was a truly phenomenal tour guide. He took so much time explaining the history behind the different factions. He was very proud of his history and provided us with a great understanding of the long time clash between the republicans and loyalists. Highly recommend!

Was on our bucket list and it was well and truly ticked Martin was the best guide for us Having first hand experience of "The Troubles" the tour was so informative and while we are well informed the personal insight and experience Martin was able to impart took us back in memory to what the people went through in this period of Irish history He obviously lives and loves to tell the story. those who fought will never be forgotten Hopefully those who died did not die in vain. May peace survive. 🍀

Martin, our driver gave us an incredible and personal insight to the troubles and historic landmarks of Belfast. He is an absolute credit to the city in relaying the history of every area. The way in which he teaches you so much that textbooks will only tell you half of is so enriching. He was happy to answer any questions we had which ensured this as the highlight of our weekend stay. Make sure you book this!
