SCHOOLS, COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES
We work extensively with schools, universities and educational study tours to provide not only walking tours but a wide range of study activities.
‘A History of Terror’
Our classic city centre walking tour, described in detail on its own page.
The tour explains how the Troubles began, tells the stories of the people involved, their place in the conflict and the effect these attacks and incidents had on the city and its people. It also shows how far the city has come since the ceasefires and Peace Process.
‘A History of Terror’ is also be available in Spanish on Saturdays and Sundays for groups of 8 or more. The tour can be run either in the morning or afternoon to suit your group’s schedule. The guide is a native speaking Spaniard who has lived in Belfast for over 20 years.
