    We did two tours and wanted to place our review on each tour site. We were guests of Gleann in late May and just had a moment to sit and write about our experience. Gleann's perspective and knowledge of how the past transcends to the current day still resonates with us. His sense of humor and kindness will be one of our most cherished memories during our trip to Northern Ireland. Gleann was able to incorporate a stop off at our son's place of employment in Derry, along with an invaluable conversation along the entire wall and into the Bogside. Gleann's expertise is a five star experience!

    Gleann was an amazing guide. We had a wonderful afternoon learning about the deep history of Derry and the troubles. The tour into the bogside and learing about the experiences that happened there was very emotional and moving. We would highly recommend booking this tour, it gave us a rich, indepth experience of the phenomenal strength, courage and determination of the people of Bogside.

    Glenn arrived promptly at easy to find start point. The time of tour was chosen to suit us which was brilliant as we had to travel to Derry. Glenn was a very friendly,affable guide. As tour went on it became very clear that he was very knowledgeably and aporoachable. Any questions answered fully. The tour itself covers a small area so is good even for people with limited mobility. I have a back problem and found no issues with the tour. Myself and husband thoroughly enjoyed the tour although the history was tragic for those living in this area at the time. Can't recommend highly enough
