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

Had a fantastic time. Hugh Jordan was every thing we needed in a tour guild. Very knowledgeable about the troubles, great story teller, and with a sense of humor... While keeping his own political views neutral. I felt like he reflected both sides in a historical way that really showed different perspectives. Completely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the Irish story of Belfast.
