We were going to Ireland for vacation in April. We booked this tour because we were interested in the IRA conflict. We were immediately contacted by Barry to arrange our pickup at our hotel and asked if there was any particular item we wanted to see or any special requests. Due to travel bans in March and April, we were unable to get to Ireland. This was a nonrefundable tour that we had agreed to. We contacted Barry and said we understood we had agreed to the nonrefundable tour. He immediately volunteered to refund our monies, and just asked that if we came back to Ireland he would appreciate us using their services. The customer service was outstanding before and was outstanding to the very end. Though we were unable to use the tour, we would highly recommend the company. We look forward to using them when we are able to visit Ireland next time.

If anyone wants an insight into Ireland’s history then you must not miss this tour. Focusing on Ireland’s early history, the troubles and up to the present day. Our guide Barry whose knowledge and experience was first class will take you to places your average tour won’t go.He will also tell you if his own experiences of the troubles and his hopes for the future. If you really want to know the true events of what happened from the late sixties up to the good Friday agreement then you should go on this tour. Absolutely first class and well worth the money. Thanks Barry for a fantastic experience. Top Bloke.

This tour was everything I had hoped for and more. Barry was very knowledgeable about the local history and took the time to help me locate my own family plot at Milltown. Excellent tour and would recommend to anyone who wants to have a real understanding of Belfast, now and then.

Being in my 60's, I have a recollection of the conflicts happening in the 80's from news reports in the USA. After looking at several tour descriptions (10 min here, then 10 minutes there), I felt I really wanted a full understanding from a local person that lived this, not just a driver that pointed out spots to take a picture. The tour Barry gave was probably the most insightful afternoon I have spent in a long time. I left the day with an entirely new perspective on the issues in Belfast. If you want to just have a few pictures that say you've been there... take a short tour... but if you really want to know the IRA conflicts... this is the only one your should take.

For those interested in Irish history, the “Troubles,” and a better understanding of the current political approach towards a united Ireland, this is the tour for you. Barry was an excellent guide, extremely knowledgeable of the past and current issues, and willing to answer questions.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in Ireland’s past, present, and future!

Not being British (or Irish), having an historical and cultural insight into Northern Ireland was truly interesting. Barry provided us with lots of information. Indeed, the tour reflected a very specific perspective on northern irish past, but we truly enjoyed listening to this historical account. Moreover the tour was truly private since Barry came to pick us up at the airport.

I did this tour independently with a local taxi driver. He charged 50 pounds (about $75) for a full 3-hour excursion. It turned out that both his grandfather and his uncle were kill during the "Troubles." His insight into what life was like at that time, plus his very realistic views on today's political environment in Northern Ireland were fascinating and moving. If you arrive in Belfast and have not made arrangement for any of the organized tours, just hail a taxi, set your time frame, negotiate the price and head out for an eye-opening experience.

Barry, You did an amazing job for starters. My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. We felt it was very personal and real. It's sad for us to say but Belfast still has a long way to go for 100% peace. It was very obvious the changes and how much tourism is changing the troubles. But in all fairness the divide is still apparent and very disturbing. We think everyone should do this tour. I believe in peace. But so heartbreaking the reality of the length of struggle for the Irish people of Northern Ireland. Your family members, What they have endured. God's speed to all of you for being so strong. I can't believe how many lives were lost and how the rest of the world did nothing.The Gates and Murals are very Real. My husband commented several times on the human impact your private tour had on him. I'm glad we did this.Best wishes to everyone who worked at the museums and answered all our questions.Thank you again BARRY !! We will never forget you !!

This tour was amazing. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided insights that only someone who had lived through the Troubles would have. I had heard about these neighborhoods for many years, but he brought them to life.
The visit to the IRA museum brought home the sacrifices made for years by those brave men and women to free their country from oppression.
It was very emotional to visit the Republican memorials and Milltown Cemetery. All those who love freedom should do this tour!

We chose a private tour to get more of an insight into the troubled history of Ireland and that’s exactly what we got! Our guide, Barry was fantastic completely neutral wanting us to learn about everything. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.
