What people are saying about Belfast

Eye-opening account from participants - IRA and UVF

Rocky did the Republican side and Jake did the Loyalist side. Coming from Dublin I have an innate understanding of the nationalist / republican side, but the first-hand accounts from an ex IRA volunteer were to say the least eye-opening. I knew what happened in a dry almost academic sense but had no idea of the stories nor of the effect of the Troubles on both communities. I thoroughly enjoyed Jake's account and he effectively countered the Republican narrative about the troubles. In effect the "troubles" were in large measure a civil war between loyalists and republicans with the loyalists attacking republicans and those perceived as supporting them. Both men said they do not want to see the troubles re-occur, and that was heartening. Both admitted that more innocent people were killed during the troubles than combatants. As an Irish person, I am convinced that we must make an agreed Ireland (whatever that may be) a warm house for the likes of Jake, Rocky and all of us.

Highly recommended. Guides sense of humour was a bonus!

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, the conversations and the guides sense of humour was a bonus. I could have done with a little more pause (less talking) to enable me take in the information shared and the beauty of the scenery as we journeyed from one place to another. Enough time given. Didn't enjoy the lunch at Fullers at all. Would book the tour again and recommend it. Great value too.

Very interesting to get the two versions of a modern conflict

It was very interesting to learn about the conflict from people who actually lived it. We learned a lot about the complexity of the situation and the consequences of the conflict in the daily life of people in Belfast. We were far from imagining this. However better to have a very good English level as the Irish accent is not easy to understand when you are not used to it.

Good tour! Magnificent scene+extraodinary experience

Incredibly lucky were we to have a sunny day trip, so the landscape is particularly beautiful and marvelous. Just wish we could have stayed longer at Giant's causeway! Because if you join the exclusive special tour (it's optional) there, you almost have no time for photography.

I enjoyed the first part of the tour more than the second.

I did enjoy the tour but i think it's slightly too long. All my attention had been used up by the time we changed guides. The 2nd part lingered too long in one place which meant that we got cold. Overall, very good.
