Amazing DC Tours guide….
Brilliant tour from Paul. The history of Belfast is very nuanced and complicated and DC Tours has crafted a fantastic tour. Paul calls on a lifetime of personal and professional involvement to illustrate the issues and important turning points during “the troubles”. This was one of the best walking tours I’ve ever taken. Belfast is an amazing city! Thank you Paul Cheers
