    Jim took us on an amazing informative tour. We learned so much about the murals, falls and shankill and the troubles. From both sides. His knowledge was so in-depth. Both of us had done different tours but this one superseded them by a country mile. I would highly recommend this tour.

    interesting tour full of information, if you want to know more about the troubles this is the right experience to do. Our really kind and good at explaining driver guided us through the hard history, of which the murals are testimony, and the current contradictions of this beautiful city. Recommended experience!

    A friend of mine and me, we found that tour amazing. Thanks specially to our guide Jim, he shows a lot of experience and whatever you asked him, he could give you an extended explanation of the answer. To summarize, it was a very interesting trip and I will definitely recommend my friends if they ever visit Belfast. All the best and thank you Jim, Ivan
