We met our guide and walked to the tour area. It was very interesting and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. His father was one of the 13who died on Bloody Sunday. I highly recommend it
Gleane was a great guide. He was very personable and knew so much about the history of the Sunday massacre and Bogside Murals. This tour is worth the trip to Derry! A highlight for us that I would highly recomend to others!
Again there are no words, tears goosebumps and a heavy heart Thank you for showing us PRIDE
Deeply profound and moving experience. Gleann was tremendous. His deep knowledge of Irish history, combined with his personal experience and connection to Bloody Sunday, was a powerful combination for a real, no holes barred account of what really took place and where the city is today. Gleann was funny, thoughtful, and generous with his time. Highly recommended for anyone interested in The Troubles, and/or just touring the area on vacation. Easy walk, highly informative and conversational. Along with historical recounting of the events/background of Bloody Sunday, Gleann's explanation on symbolism and meaning of each political mural was fascinating. Being of Irish descent, this was extremely emotional and the pinnacle of my trip tracing my Irish heritage in NI. My heart swelled with horror, pride and honor. Thanks to Gleann for such a wonderful and informative tour.
