A must do trip if you’re visiting Belfast and want to really understand it’s history from those who lived it. The whole experience really opens your eyes to another side to the city. The only important element of booking I would mention, is we paid for a one hour trip and when our guide/driver arrived he said it wasn’t long enough to really benefit from the experience so we had to pay for an extra hour.

Jojo was and excellent guide and explained the history of the troubles and the current situation. We werre shocked that Northern Ireland is still so divided but glad to hear that things are moving in a better direction. Maybe if the English quit celebrating their victory and burning pictures of the successor to Peter, things would be better. But glad to hear the elections may result in something war never did.
