The Bogside Murals and Bloody Sunday tour was both informative and moving. If you want to fully understand the underlying causes of The Troubles and why Northern Ireland was plunged into conflict for so long then this tour will help explain it. As a former British soldier who served in NI during The Troubles in the eighties I was only ever able to view things from one side. I'd never even talked to someone on the republican side, or been to the Bogside, so what did I really know? It took this tour and a subsequent visit to the Free Derry Museum to allow me to gain a deeper understanding. Our guide Gleann took us around the Bogside explaining the background and context to numerous slogans, murals and memorials all within an incredibly small area. When we learnt that Gleann had suffered personal loss during the terrible events of Bloody Sunday his dignity and lack of rancour were amazing. The Bogside has a story to tell and you won't understand The Troubles unless you come to hear it.
Excellent tour led by Marti - a true "Local" with a very comprehensive knowledge of his history and a very keen eye to detail on the things that make Belfast "Special" - everything from Street Art - hard to find pubs - abandoned but once loved buildings - art work - local buskers - Churches - he was able to cover all interests / aspects of Belfast a really worthwhile - value for money and entertaining tour - highly recommended.
Steve our driver/tour guide was excellent, his knowledge about the show, his country and the locations were exceptional, he also had great craic and was very amusing. A fab day, very good value and as an added extra we had fab weather too! I’ve recommended it to family and friends already - and we only went yesterday!
