Our guide Jojo was fantastic,, very informative, we was only meant to have 1hr but he kept us out for 2hrs, I could of listen to his stories all day, some sad some funny, loved that we got to write on the peace wall and that his brother was the actual artist who painted the Murals, totally recommend this tour and hopefully you will get Jojo as your guide

‘Wee Jim’, knew his stuff and gave us an insightful tour of the area and history. Great if we had managed to drive slightly further afield or taken in a few more landmarks to add some extra time onto the experience to gain a true value for money. Thoroughly recommend to do this tourist attraction irrespective of known knowledge or naivety to the city’s harrowing times. 10 out of 10 for Jim though!

Very good experience and straight down the line when it came to facts about the history. Very well illustrated tour with the peace wall that still closes along its 23 miles every night. Even got to see a mural of his taxi being painted by JJ's brother. Very personal and very enjoyable
