What people are saying about Peace Walls

Very worthwhile......primarily as we had an excellent driver, Noel .

We had the good fortune of traveling with Noel on a bus with 15 passengers. Noel had lots of information, but importantly a wonderful sense of humor. Will definitely seek him out when we return.

An incredibly personal look into the views and violence of the Trouble

An incredibly personal look into the views and violence of the Troubles. Our guides were both deeply involved in the paramilitary operations of the IRA and the UVF. They were people present and involved in some of the darkest parts of the history of this time, and they share their views with you from an unfiltered first-person perspective, and how those views changed over time from when they were deeply involved in the violence until now, when they advocate against it. At first I thought the guides must be minorly involved to be involved in a tour such as this, but it became apparent how all the people of these neighborhoods knew them, and respected them. We looked up the history of one of our guides (Noel, from the Loyalist/Protestant perspective) and discovered that he was a figure of infamy during the troubles, sentenced to multiple life sentences. There are likely no better looks into what was really in the hearts and minds of the people of these times than these guides.

Loved the walking tour. Loved getting both side of the story.

Both guides were fantastic. Our guide through the Falls Rd had lived the history and knew the individuals who gave their lives. A very personal encounter with a remarkable man. On the Prodestant side our guide was equally good, giving us an account of what had happened in his neighbourhood. I especially liked that he did not glorify the paramilitary and was able to explain the importanct of the Peace Wall and maintaining it until everyone is ready to bring it down. An eye opening, moving, harrowing tour. An excellent experience.

Eye opening, shocking and encouraging all at once

The tour provided a vital complement and contrast to the stately architecture and impressive pubs and shops of Belfast city centre. Both of our guides - Jack & Mark - made a point of being were very welcoming, open and honest. I feared I would feel a voyeur but Jack & Mark both conveyed the sense that they want people to know more about what happened in the Troubles, and how things are today, so that understanding can be improved on all sides. The people in the streets we walked through did not seem to mind the presence of incomers staring at their houses, shops, murals and memorials. That seemed quite an irony - these segregated, sectarian communities on both sides are welcoming groups of people who might be from anywhere, and of any political and religious persuasion. It felt difficult to comprehend the horrific things which have taken place as the physical damage from the Troubles has all been cleared and repaired, but the murals and the personal stories on show made it real.

Excellent and well balanced view from both sides of conflict

Rab was excellent with his views from republican side and it gave a very balanced view of the conflict when combined with those of our loyalist guide - very informative and well presented
