Amazing DC Tours guide….

Brilliant tour from Paul. The history of Belfast is very nuanced and complicated and DC Tours has crafted a fantastic tour. Paul calls on a lifetime of personal and professional involvement to illustrate the issues and important turning points during “the troubles”. This was one of the best walking tours I’ve ever taken. Belfast is an amazing city! Thank you Paul Cheers

It was such a great tour, our guide was excellent. I would highly recommend, so interesting the history up to modern day. It rained the morning of our tour and it was still so worth going.

Very informative and detailed tour. I learned a lot! The guide was easy to understand and I liked the added touch of having the ear pieces and radio mic- this meant I wasn't straining to hear.

We received a clear and balanced account of 800 years of history and an intelligent description of key events where they happened during the conflict (The Troubles).

Truly hair-raising experience

I travelled with friends and we decided that a history tour through the city of Belfast would be interesting. Having little to no knowledge of Belfast's history, I am very glad we joined this tour as it was far beyond our expectations. Our tour guy, who's name I unfortunately don't remember 😅, gave us a deep look into Belfast's history and triggered our thirst to get to know more about it. We went around the city center to places that looked like nothing has happened there, yet a very bloody event might have taken place just 30 years ago. It is mind blowing the fact that Belfast residents who are now 30 years old lived through those events and have relatives lost. I absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting Belfast.

Our tour guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable on the history of Northern Ireland. He was very passionate on the subject. Would recommend to anyone who wants to know more about Ireland.

Our day of knowledge on the walking terror walk.

When our tour guide jamsey showed us all his old photos of old buildings that were once there a long time ago and streets people walked down through. He was able to tell us about the statue of the ring of hope and who build it. I was really hooked on the paintings on the walls aswell. It was excellent!

Paul was amazing! Despite the weather it was a fantastic tour and learned so much about the history of the troubles of Belfast. Paul is incredibly knowledgeable and even has his own blogs if you'd like to delve further. Well worth going. Thank you so much!

We decided to take this tour, because we did not understand all that was going on during the Troubles. Our tour guide was excellent. He answered all our questions with ease, and a slow tone. We walked all over and enjoyed learning new information. It was a tough time.

An excellent introduction to the ‘Irish Problem’
Pierre_C
, Sep 2021
A very knowledgable guide who had lived through the troubles. He provided an excellent introduction to the “Irish Problem” starting with Henry VIII to provide the background to more recent events. A very fair account of a number of incidents to provide a human account of the tragedy resulting from sectarianism, miscalculation and lack of trust between the protagonists. It was not an account of winners and losers for in ‘The Troubles’ every part of the community suffered losses.
