There is no better way to see Derry and understand its history more than one of the multiple tours (The Walls, Bogside, Bloody Sunday) offered by this first-rate crew. Paul coordinated an amazing, enriching and meaningful two-day exploration of this beautiful, walkable, and friendly city. Can't wait to come back with my family and do it all again!

I have previously been on a tour of the Bogside organised by the Free Derry Museum which was fantastic but Paul did an even better job. It was a very cold day but he spent well over an hour with us giving us background and personal insight into the history of the Troubles and Bloody Sunday. A powerful experience of part of British history that is regularly glossed over in England.

My mum, aunt and I had a fantastic personal walking tour of the Bogside murals. Walking the streets with Paul, from the historic Guild Hall into the neighbourhood where Bloody Sunday occurred and the murals reside, was an authentic, informative and at times somber history of Northern Ireland. Paul's detailed and personal knowledge of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights movement and the political and social pressures surrounding it were retold in a skillful way. Although at times the subject matter is obviously heavy, Paul checked in with us to make sure we were ok and the friendly honks and greetings from locals on the streets did lift our spirits and make us feel welcome. I think this should be a required tour for all young adults and really underscores the importance of the right to protest and access to vote for every individual.

Our tour guide ,Paul, was wonderfully patient with all of our questions(and we had many) This is mot a tour for the squeamish but is for those who want to hear from those with direct accounts of the troubles. It ties in with a visit to the Free Derry Museum. We are so sad that the. People of Bogside went through what they did, and we are impressed with their bravery in keeping the truth. Everyone who gets a chance shout take this tour.

we were a group of friends from Dublin and decided to go to derry for the weekend and to book this tour to further our knowledge of the history of our country and the bad and injust way that irish people (catholics) in Derry were treated By the British. I have to say George (the guide) was very informative and his local knowledge made the tour very interesting as he had local stories that u probably wouldn't hear anywhere else and he grew up in the bogside so he knew his stuff. for me personally I love history and really enjoyed the tour and derry in general. I would recommend the tour to anyone who likes history and who's interested in the disgraceful actions of British soldiers on our island when they killed 14 people on bloody Sunday and lots more. Thanks George for the tour. Niall
