体验内容

Starting at Belfast city hall (we meet at the front gates of City Hall in Donegall Square North) and finishing by the Beacon of Hope beside the river Lagan, the tour visits 7 locations in the city centre where major events occurred during the conflict.

We start with a short introduction to Irish / British history and why the Troubles start in the late 1960’s. Over the course of 1.5 miles and 2 hours and 15 minutes we then tell the stories of each site; what happened and why, who was involved, and the effect these attacks had on the city and its people, affecting nearly every part of our daily lives.

We also demonstrate the impact of the peace process; you will witness the social and cultural regeneration of the city as we walk through the Cathedral Quarter and waterfront areas where you will also see some of the street art that demonstrates our newfound vibrant culture.

Throughout the tour we use visual aids with images of the Troubles and the places we visit from the 1960’s, 70’s & 80’s to help you envisage the realities of life then compared to now.

The tour is factual and historically accurate to ensure it is unbiased and non-partisan, but we also weave our own stories into the tour to bring our history to life for you.

There is also time built into the tour to ensure that questions are encouraged from guests and that our answers are meaningful.

We are Mark Wylie, Paul ‘Donzo’ Donnelly and James Ellson, conflict historians with qualifications in Irish History, Politics and Anthropology. We were all born in Belfast in the 1960's, (in the year the Troubles began!).

We have worked extensively in teaching, mediation work with interface communities and ex-combatants, and Victims & Survivors groups, and of course as tour guides.

We began giving tours to visitors in 2013. We are immensely proud of our city and this is reflected in what we do. Our ‘A History of Terror’ Belfast city walking tour was Highly Commended at the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards in 2019 and is the only ‘peace and reconciliation’ or ‘political history’ tour to receive a 5 star rating by Tourism Northern Ireland. Paul was named 'Top UK Tour Guide' at the Wanderlust World Guide Awards in 2019.

    I'm privileged to be the only guest because of covid. Paul and I were born in the same horoscope and we both believe in the power of oral history. I admire the work he has been doing for 20 years in building peace between communities in conflict. He led the tour with his personal memories of the troubled time, his deep concern for the civilians, and his hope of publicly commemorating the innocent who lost their lives at that time. Thus, this is more than a tour of learning the history, it is, at least for me, a chance to think about the future - how to move on by recognising the past, by talking about the issue among people from both parties, and by realising how similar we are after all. I have so much to learn from this tour, and so much to take away and implement in my own country and life. Thank you!

    Ok so this was HANDS DOWN the BEST thing I've done on my trip. Paul was brilliant; welcoming, funny, insightful, incredibly well informed and nuanced. I cant recommend DC Tours enough!!

    An experience that brings the history of Northern Ireland tastefully for you to comprehend. The experience is told at a sensitive level for all sides involved. You will understand the complexity of what happened and the current challenges that are ahead. Having somebody as Mark involved not only in the tour but in the real world issues gives me confidence that Northern Ireland's best days are ahead. Well done.

    James delivered our tour and was charming, hugely knowledgeable and able to convey the experience of both himself and everyone in NI at the time. We did the tour as 60-something wrinklies with our 30-something daughter. She learned a lot about stuff from before she was born and we learned details that we never knew. The Troubles are still baffling but the look and feel of the 1970s-90s was evoked very well and the arrival of the peace process is to be cherished and not put at risk by our current lunatic leaders.
