Glenn arrived promptly at easy to find start point. The time of tour was chosen to suit us which was brilliant as we had to travel to Derry. Glenn was a very friendly,affable guide. As tour went on it became very clear that he was very knowledgeably and aporoachable. Any questions answered fully. The tour itself covers a small area so is good even for people with limited mobility. I have a back problem and found no issues with the tour. Myself and husband thoroughly enjoyed the tour although the history was tragic for those living in this area at the time. Can't recommend highly enough

Gleann was an amazing guide. We had a wonderful afternoon learning about the deep history of Derry and the troubles. The tour into the bogside and learing about the experiences that happened there was very emotional and moving. We would highly recommend booking this tour, it gave us a rich, indepth experience of the phenomenal strength, courage and determination of the people of Bogside.

Gleann has exceptional knowledge of Irish history. We were so moved by his tour and his capability to convey information in a way which allows for both learning and reflection. We learnt so much on the tour and will definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Derry city.

Really enjoyed the tour. Our guide Glean was really friendly, knowledgeable and was happy to answer any questions we had. He really helped set the scene! I would definitely recommend this tour. Definitely learned a lot from it.

The tour was well worth it, bringing a new dimension to our understanding of the history of Derry.
