It was great to learn more about the history of the city, standing where it all happened. Thanks to James for his wonderful insights and his endless willingness to clarify and re-explain aspects that weren't that clear to a foreigner like me. Note: If you might be interested in it, the visit at the Peace wall is not included in this tour.

This was incredible. Paul, our tour guide, was respectful, unbiased, and well researched. The tour painted an accurate picture of the Troubles, including the politics, the day to day, the feelings, and the lasting impacts. Would highly recommend for anyone who wants to better understand the Belfast of the past and the Belfast of the present.

Paul was an excellent guide. He was passionate but always impartial to both sides. You can’t see what the city went through on the surface. He will tell you why.

We had Steve as our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic. Loved the tour and hearing an unbiased history of Northern Ireland from such a knowledgeable guide! Would definitely recommend. So interesting to see and hear about significant sites/events of The Troubles.

The tour leader was very knowledgeable and did an amazing job of conveying and explaining the history and details in a completely unbiased fashion that was thought provoking and engaging. The headsets provided made it the best walking tour I have taken as it was so easy to hear what he was saying. The walk was not overly long, but it did not need to be. I share this as some people shy away from walking tours thinking they need to walk 5 or 10 km.

Uncomfortable at times as an English woman to hear an unbiased view which I am sure our guide did very well. Made me think and challenge my own unconscious bias.

Paul Donnelly was well informed, entertaining, and brought the history to life in a historical and personal way. He is clearly a respected member of his community, as several locals said hello as they walked by. Excellent tour.

History of "Belfast"

Tour guide "James Ellson" was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and amusing. My tour was Sunday May 29th, 2022, the tour was a little more than 2 hours well worth the time and reasonable price. "James" made the tour interesting, pointing out specific buildings that were bombed, the groups who were responsible for the violence, etc. His anecdotes were fascinating, humorous, and informative. I highly recommended this tour for anyone who is interested in the history of "Belfast".

This was an excellent tour to learn the history of N. Ireland and Great Britain. The tour operator, Paul, was well suited to provide the history lesson because he is local and lived through that time period.

Excellent tour to learn Belfast history of the "troubles"
DavidT
, Jun 2022
We booked four walking tours of different cities on our trip and this was by far the most enjoyable! The guide was excellent, with many personal stories to add to the history. The route was well planned to add to the narratives. Also, the use of personal headsets made the listening excellent, with no problem for my middle aged ears to understand the commentary over the city noise. I would take this again!

Place to be if you want to learn about Belfast's history
Barbara_J

This walking tour was great - our guide Paul really made an effort and clearly enjoyed telling the group about Belfast's troubled history. It's great that you get a "hearing aid" - so you can always hear the guide even when some traffic passes by or some wanna be Ed Sheerans fill the place with music ;-). Felt that I learnt a lot and could really envision the Troubles at the original spots which gave me goosebumps sometimes. My recommendation: Go there - it's worth the bugs.

Excellent intro to the troubles

Toured with James and he was excellent. He has a great passion to tell the sad story of the troubles and it's victims on both sides. He describes the many factions that participated with an even hand such that you have no idea as to his religion. Excellent!
