Amazing Bloody Sunday Walking Tour
Loraine_C
, Sep 2022
Thanks so much to our amazing guide John, who made our trip to Derry truly memorable and for enlightening us about the events of Bloody Sunday. John’s brother, William, was a victim on the day and because of this, he offered us an incredibly unique and personal insight into what happened. We were very privileged to meet him and grateful for the experience. We can’t recommend this walking tour enough. Cosgrove Family.

We are so happy we found this tour, it was just what we hoped to help us understand the issues and history of this area. John has a wealth of information to share, as he lived through so much off it, and he keeps up to date with ongoing issues. A terrific experience, I could have spent a lot longer with him.

John McKinney gave us a wonderful yet disturbing history lesson. Much of it never made it to the states. I’m glad he continues to make efforts to bring justice for those who were murdered in 1972.

The Troubles Bogside Tour is the One Historical Tour You Should Consider if You Can Only Do One
Todd_A
, May 2022
As it turned out, our tour with John M. was the best time we spent in our ten days to Ireland and Northern Ireland. John is a gifted orator and historian who was able to provide great context and background information that allowed us to better understand the root causes of the tensions and violence. His personal and family experience made our tour extraordinarly. This tour was brilliant in all respects. Be sure to vist the Free Derry Museum afterwards.
