A very informative tour from Francis. I would HIGHLY recommend it. He does his tour in such a way to give you insight to both sides of the divide that has plagued Northern Ireland. His personal experiences growing up in Belfast, and showing you exactly where these experiences had taken place, absolutely made the tour. Thank you Francis for educating me on the political history of Northern Ireland, and answering all of my many many questions. Slainte!
