Hi guys

I took this tour on Thursday gone. Paul was so informative it’s scary the knowledge he has of the city and the history attached to it. I learned more that day about Irish history than I ever did in school. It started to rain and Paul took us in his car to finish off the tour which so very nice of him. I was so glad I took this tour and would highly recommend it to anyone hitting Derry city for a trip.

Have fun guys
Vinny

We did the bogside history tour of Bloody Sunday. Paul was an incredible tour guide and his personal connections to the city and to its history made everything more poignant. The tour lasted about 1.5 hours and even though it was lashing rain, we throughly enjoyed it. Paul even gave his umbrella to one of the group without! Really enjoyed it and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Derry!

We were lucky enough to have Paul as our tour guide, who’s father was killed in the Bloody Sunday massacre. He was extremely friendly and always checking if we were comfortable or had enough time to see what we wanted. He was extremely knowledgable of Derry’s history. His first hand experience of the streets of Derry, personal accounts of the family’s experience and ongoing struggle for justice was truly impactful.

I was hesitant that this would be another tourist scripted tour. Paul is unapologetically direct. No script. He was very careful not to offend but gave an honest first hand account from his perspective.

He left us understanding the deeper issues that his community faced beyond the widely recognised religious or sectarian issues.

Before the tour I would have said you couldn’t put a price on the opportunity to spend an hour with someone who has truly lived it.

But you can and it was such good value for money we payed more!

Paul , who I called to organise the bogside history cab tour was very helpful and accommodating. He arranged for Adrian to collect us and take us on our history tour. Adrian was fantastic, fabulous and amazing. From the moment we got in the cab, he was engaging. Adrian’s knowledge of the history of Ireland was brilliant and it set you up to better understand ‘the troubles’ The events Adrian shared gave you a new perspective on the events that were so widely telecasted. His tour gave you an inclination of what it was like to live in Derry as an impressionable child. He shared his experiences and that of others he knew. Days later, we are still talking about what we learnt in his presence Amazing tour

I’m originally from Derry and have been looking forward to doing this tour with Paul for some time. Paul knows his stuff, he also brings something personal to the tour, he lost his father on Bloody Sunday. I thought I knew my history but I learned so much from Paul. If you get a chance do the tour especially if you’re a Mucker!
Thanks again Paul.

Paul is an excellent guide, witty, enjoys a laugh, very much to the point and fact after fact, and gives his own personal view and has no problems expressing his beliefs. He was excellent. The tour brought us to various different points and focused on the troubles and Bloody Sunday. I don’t want to give to much away with this review but it was absolutely brilliant and enjoyed it from start to finish. A must do!
