Creates a personal connection to the Bogside

This tour was open, honest and raw. Our guide gave us a heartfelt history of Derry with a scholar's knowledge and a Derry boy's memories. Peter was a wealth of information, positive attitude and matter-of-fact accounts of life growing up during the Troubles in the Bogside in Derry. His charisma allowed him to easily explain the complexities and tragedies of the Troubles to my husband and I (who love history and political science) while painting a picture of what a boy's day-to-day life was like during the Troubles to my two sons (ages 9 and 12) in a very age-appropriate way. He did not sugarcoat or downplay the events, but he also did not exaggerate nor give so much detail as to scare the kids. If you want to walk the streets of the Bogside and feel like you're flipping between the pages of a text book and personal diary, this is the tour for you. Personally, we chose to start the day with a fun tour of the city with a focus on the fictional Derry Girls series (a tour which I also highly recommend!), stopped for lunch, and closed out with this very real account of the Bogside. It was a nice way to kind of marry a tv series we enjoy with the memories of what life may have actually been like for the real teens of the Derry Bogside during the Troubles.

Our tour group consisted of people from all over the globe, was interesting to hear about Derrys history from a guide that lived through it all and see the historical sites, nice to see people living in peace and prosperity, am sure the future will be good, our group had 2 unionist women from Belfast who at end of tour hugged our guide :-) we enjoyed Derry a pretty city and better than we expected
