I have to say first of all that George was a fantastic guide with all that he told us about bloody Sunday, which I found a real eye opener and also very sad at how many young people lost there lives.
I also enjoyed the Free Derry museum which was also very educational.
I would recommend this tour for anyone who is coming to Derry, no I think everyone should come to Derry from were every you are from and do this tour and also finish the tour in the Free Derry museum.
Thanks again George for the wonderful experience

It’s difficult to capture in words the experience of seeing firsthand the site of so many recent tragedies, especially with a guide who experienced them in his youth. The Bogside part of our tour (where some of the worst violence occurred during the “Troubles”) nearly knocked my family off our feet. It was somber and inspiring. We then went on to see Giants’ Casueway, the Dark Hedges, and Castle Dunluce. All of it was spectacular in its own way. Our guide, Neil, was warm, inviting, patient, and accommodating. We couldn’t have asked for more. Highly recommended.

I was visiting Derry a few weeks ago, and it was my first time in Ireland altogether. As a londoner, I was extremely ignorant over Ireland's recent history, and this tour really opened my eyes. Neil is a brilliant tour guide, and the tour he gave was thorough, heavy, and above all, real. Moving, thought-provoking and honest, I certainly learnt a lot. Excellent tour, would highly recommend. Cheers Neil

Neil took us from our hotel and gave us the most amazing tour, for someone like myself engrossed for years of the stories of Bloody Sunday and the famous bogside it was chilling and brilliant the detail and lengths Neil went to to give us what we wanted out of this tour. Top top man, thanks very much a Chara.
