    The only and deep truth about the so-called Troubles

    Gleann has been a tremendous guide: so sharp and exhaustive, so deep and human (as his family was directly involved in the Bloody Sunday), so professional and open. There's no better way to understand what happened during the days of the Civil Rights Movement in the late 60's-early 70's. Thank you Gleann for everything, enjoy Naples in the following days and hope we'll meet again somewhere in the future. Greetings from Paolo & Piero!

    What a tour!

    Gleann is a great tour guide, very warm and personable. You will leave understanding more than you knew there was to know about Free Derry, including very personal accounts, and how the Civil Rights movement began and how it played out, some of the after effects, and how it coincided with the Civil Rights movement in the U.S.A. Also recommended is the Free Derry Museum. Thank you, Gleann, for a very moving tour.

    An excellent tour. Our guide Michael was obviously very knowledgable about the subject and conveyed that knowledge very well.
