    Our guide, Robbie, was unbiased and told us how the “Troubles” started and how they escalated into the horrors they became. He explained the meanings of the murals and how the peace wall was put in place and showed us the scenes of some of the atrocities that occurred and the memorials to the victims. We lived through these times but in England and had no idea about how it was. It opened our eyes to the Catholic point of view and to the Nationalist perspective. So much information to take in.

    The places visited were absolutely stunning, I just wish there was about 15 minutes more at Carrick a Rede and about 25 minutes more at giant causeway - especially if you did the walking tour as well here. It did feel rushed and no time for souvenirs! We would have liked to explore more. The guides/drivers were quite good - some very good stories on the 'troubles' in Belfast. Pleased we took this tour, perhaps a more upmarket hotel for the overnight stay would have been good - Etap was cheap & barely cheerful and Paddywagon did pay for taxis to/from.

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
