Unique experience to hear personal perspectives from two people who lived through the Troubles. Jack recounts underlying motivations and hopes of the republican side. Mark address his concerns towards the future as well as many unresolved past grievances. Highly recommended. A toilet break in the middle would be helpful though.

Having two tour guides who actually were a part of this provided great insight from both sides. Would 10/10 recommend!

Extremely worthwhile, confronting and eye-opening. Guides directly involved in the troubles and very honest and open. Bring plenty of layers if you go in winter.

I did the Falls road tour with Paul on Sunday. I was really lucky because I was the only one at that time slot, so I got 3 hours of Paul's life experience and history of the conflict between Catholics and Protestants in Ireland. I love history and realise that there is so much that we do not get to know from the media's side of the story. It was the highlight of my weekend in Belfast and I would definitely recommend everyone to do the Falls road tour with this company because of the experiences and perspective of the guides who lived through these times. It rates as one of the most interesting tours I have ever done, and I am well travelled. Absolutely eye opening and I am delighted I got to hear Paul's side of the conflict.

This was unforgettable. Two utterly contrasting perspectives on a divided country. Vivid and depressing at the same time. Palestinian flags on the Republican side, Israeli on the Unionist side, and divided by a huge 'peace' wall, a reminder that some of the Troubles are not over. Quite an endurance test too on a cold afternoon, no seats, no refreshment stops, just 3 hours of walking and standing.

We took a three-hour tour of the Falls Road/murals/Milltown Cemetery with Gerald Fusco, an IRA member who spent six years in the 70s-80s. Knew Bobby Sands in H block. Gerald is still a dedicated republican, but is committed to peace. His tour of the Falls Road area was brilliant, full of passion and perspective, laced with his own personal history--which is vivid, tragic and illuminating. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the history of the confict.

Robert was great, knew a ton and talked all about his experiences and the people he knew. Showed us great spots and highlighted differences between the different neighborhoods.

The whole experience was inspiring, emotional, thoughtful and heartfelt. Our guide on the first part Jack was a kind considerate and informative. This tour of both sides of the divide is a must if you visit Belfast. They tell it how it is/was and we have learned so much that was kept from us. A fantastic story and experience.

My wife and I recently had a tour of the Republican Milltown Cemetery. Our guide Brian (Rocky) was very passionate and incredibly knowledgeable about Irish Republican History. I’m English and born in the 1970s and never in my wildest dreams would have believed I could ever have a tour of this cemetery. Highly recommended but if you are British it could take you a few days to get over the shock of the experience. Some incredible history and unbelievably harrowing stories.
