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 a great guide, thoughtful and informative. He gave us lots of information from the Troubles, from a personal perspective. Also amused my daughter with explanations of key locations from Derry Girls! Highly recommended.

Our guide Gleann was very knowledgeable and gave us a very good informative insight of what happened on Bloody Sunday. Also the explanations of the murals was very interesting. Well worth doing.

If you want to dive into the culture and get a glimpse of what drives Derry’s rich culture you have to book this tour. Our guide Gleann was amazing! Funny, friendly, and very informative!

We had a great tour with Gleann. It was full of raw emotion and felt as genuine as possible as it was told by a guide who has experienced the hardship derry has experienced
