Jojo was and excellent guide and explained the history of the troubles and the current situation. We werre shocked that Northern Ireland is still so divided but glad to hear that things are moving in a better direction. Maybe if the English quit celebrating their victory and burning pictures of the successor to Peter, things would be better. But glad to hear the elections may result in something war never did.

Our guide was excellent and gave us an great description of the events that occurred over the years of "the troubles" in Belfast. It was like he was reliving the events. We were amazed that he was so enthusiastic in describing the events, particularly since he does it every day, and ours was the last tour of the day. The tour was fantastic
