Paul Donnelly was well informed, entertaining, and brought the history to life in a historical and personal way. He is clearly a respected member of his community, as several locals said hello as they walked by. Excellent tour.

History of "Belfast"

Tour guide "James Ellson" was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and amusing. My tour was Sunday May 29th, 2022, the tour was a little more than 2 hours well worth the time and reasonable price. "James" made the tour interesting, pointing out specific buildings that were bombed, the groups who were responsible for the violence, etc. His anecdotes were fascinating, humorous, and informative. I highly recommended this tour for anyone who is interested in the history of "Belfast".

Great history lesson

This was an excellent tour to learn the history of N. Ireland and Great Britain. The tour operator, Paul, was well suited to provide the history lesson because he is local and lived through that time period.

Excellent tour to learn Belfast history of the "troubles"
DavidT
, Jun 2022
We booked four walking tours of different cities on our trip and this was by far the most enjoyable! The guide was excellent, with many personal stories to add to the history. The route was well planned to add to the narratives. Also, the use of personal headsets made the listening excellent, with no problem for my middle aged ears to understand the commentary over the city noise. I would take this again!

Place to be if you want to learn about Belfast's history

This walking tour was great - our guide Paul really made an effort and clearly enjoyed telling the group about Belfast's troubled history. It's great that you get a "hearing aid" - so you can always hear the guide even when some traffic passes by or some wanna be Ed Sheerans fill the place with music ;-). Felt that I learnt a lot and could really envision the Troubles at the original spots which gave me goosebumps sometimes. My recommendation: Go there - it's worth the bugs.

Excellent intro to the troubles

Toured with James and he was excellent. He has a great passion to tell the sad story of the troubles and it's victims on both sides. He describes the many factions that participated with an even hand such that you have no idea as to his religion. Excellent!

Absolutely fantastic. The guide actually grew up in Belfast during the Troubles and was able to give his own perspective and eyewitness reports of the situation. Must, must MUST do

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.
