Overview
I have 25 years experience delivering a completely non biased tour of the political/ troubles of N.Ireland/Ireland. We take both small and large groups and in large groups I provide drivers / Guides from both communities and at different stops the drivers address the group providing a history of the area they grew up in. When only one driver is required we dont give away which side of the divide we come from but visitors are welcome to guess at the end of the tour showing are delivery is non biased as 50/50 get it right or wrong. We pick up at required locations in Belfast city centre or visitor attractions like the famous Titanic museum and drop off again at a chosen location in the same area but if a drop off is required outside of zone then a price will be provided , IE airports or hotels outside Belfast. The tour will start in a protestant/unionist/ Loyalist area, then visit the most famous peace/ dividing wall and then into a catholic/Nationalist/Republican area. All Welcome.

The 2 drivers gave us good insight into the Troubles from both perspectives. Seeing the WALL was very moving, being able to write on it and to see the display was powerful. I learned a great deal.

Very interesting and informative tour. Eamonn is extremely knowledgeable and gave an impartial explanation of the historic troubles in Northern Ireland. Any questions we had were answered and he took the time to make sure we got the most from the tour. Would highly recommend.
