A must do. We were impressed by both sides of the experiences of the division between the loyalists and republicans. Complete different look. Very sobering too when hoping for unification.

What a great experience. The booking process was so easy. Our guide Michael was waiting for us and was really helpfully and friendly.

The tour was very informative and gave a in-depth insight into the troubles. The meeting point was very accessible also.

Excellent stuff from both sides. Rocky then Jimmy telling us first hand about their experiences. Highly recommended
