Susie Millar has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of the building of the Titanic, and an intimate knowledge of the people that built this iconic ship including her Great Grandfather, Tommy Millar, who sailed on board her as an engineer on that fateful voyage in 1912.
Susie has a warm and engaging personality which brings the tour to life in so many ways and in so many places, with unrivalled access to sites which other tours do not have. Susie's tour gives you a great insight of the hardship of being a shipyard worker in Belfast in the early 1900's, the homes where they lived, their families and their pride in being part of the legend of the Titanic.
'The Two Pennies' a fascinating and poignant book written by Susie, details the life of her Great Grandfather and the two pennies he gave his two children before he sailed on that fateful voyage, to start a new life with the White Star Line in New York, from which he never returned.
If you are thinking of coming to Belfast, Susie’s Millar's tour is an absolute must, and if you are considering the Titanic Exhibition then take her tour beforehand to give you a real appreciation of the Titanic legend.
Susie had a previous career as a highly acclaimed television journalist with an unrivalled knowledge of Ulster, its history and people and she will also guide you on personalised tours to some of the most beautiful parts of the province. We chose her wonderful day tour of the North and West coast which was a superb ending to or short break in Northern Ireland.
Yes, as a previous reviewer said, Susie Millar is indeed a National Treasure.
