Hugh was an incredible guide . Extremely knowledgeable on the subject of the troubles and explained it in an understandable manner . Very much enjoyed this experience and would highly recommend High as a guide . As an aside I think it is wise for all taking this tour to do a bit of reading before the tour as this is an extremely complex subject . Thank you Hugh for your guidance and expertise . Hal and June

Great tour! Hugh was a knowledgeable guide and was open to any questions we had. He gave great detail about each mural we visited and explained the stories behind each one. He provided pens for us to sign the peace wall, which was a nice touch to the tour and also had no problem taking pictures for us.

Hugh gave us such a wonderful tour , he is so knowledgable on the area and both sides of the conflict in Northern Ireland, while remaining humerous and chatty. We also got the opportunity to sign the wall, markers provided by him. He also gave recommendations for fun places to go in Belfast. The tour was exactly and hour and a half which was perfect for us on a time crunch. He answered all of our questions in great detail. An over all brilliant experience that we would recommend to anyone visiting Belfast who wants to learn about the history
