The Bogside Murals and Bloody Sunday tour was both informative and moving. If you want to fully understand the underlying causes of The Troubles and why Northern Ireland was plunged into conflict for so long then this tour will help explain it. As a former British soldier who served in NI during The Troubles in the eighties I was only ever able to view things from one side. I'd never even talked to someone on the republican side, or been to the Bogside, so what did I really know? It took this tour and a subsequent visit to the Free Derry Museum to allow me to gain a deeper understanding. Our guide Gleann took us around the Bogside explaining the background and context to numerous slogans, murals and memorials all within an incredibly small area. When we learnt that Gleann had suffered personal loss during the terrible events of Bloody Sunday his dignity and lack of rancour were amazing. The Bogside has a story to tell and you won't understand The Troubles unless you come to hear it.

Glenn arrived promptly at easy to find start point. The time of tour was chosen to suit us which was brilliant as we had to travel to Derry. Glenn was a very friendly,affable guide. As tour went on it became very clear that he was very knowledgeably and aporoachable. Any questions answered fully. The tour itself covers a small area so is good even for people with limited mobility. I have a back problem and found no issues with the tour. Myself and husband thoroughly enjoyed the tour although the history was tragic for those living in this area at the time. Can't recommend highly enough

Gleann has exceptional knowledge of Irish history. We were so moved by his tour and his capability to convey information in a way which allows for both learning and reflection. We learnt so much on the tour and will definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Derry city.

The tour was well worth it, bringing a new dimension to our understanding of the history of Derry.

Fantastic experience which was very insightful and fun and I would highly recommend it!
