We were guests of Gleann in late May and just had a moment to sit and write about our experience. Gleann's perspective and knowledge of how the past transcends to the current day still resonates with
us. His sense of humor and kindness will be one of our most cherished memories during our trip to Northern Ireland. Gleann was able to incorporate a stop off at our son's place of employment in
Derry, along with an invaluable conversation along the entire wall and into the Bogside. Gleann's expertise is a five star experience!

Our Derry Girls tour with Gleann was among the highlights of our recent holiday in Northern Ireland. The Derry Girls sights were fun to see, but made more resonant by the added history Gleann gave us
as we walked around the city. I was so taken with Derry I didn't want to leave. Thank you Gleann for an engaging, educational and very enjoyable few hours.

Had a Bloody Sunday tour with Gleann, and we were genuinely blown away. Gleann gave insight with incredible depth of knowledge and a raw emotion, never veering away from fact and objectivity.
Would recommend to anybody visiting the city.

We loved the Derry Girls Tour, it was really informative and enjoyable. Would highly recommend the tour, and you as a tour guide.
Thanks a million,

I really recommend taking a guided tour with Gleann, whether you're a native or a visitor. My American cousin wanted to connect with her Irish roots and understand Northern Ireland history and
politics. She's also a huge Derry Girls fan. So we combined the two, on a walking tour with Gleann in August 2021. I'm a Derry Girl myself but I learned some new things from him, and we had a great
time. He has a degree in Irish history and culture, and really knows his stuff. He's good fun, too. Highly recommended.

Had an incredible trip to Derry, made so special by our tour with Glenann. He gave us such a personal look at the beautiful city. We learnt so much about Derry and it's history, while also seeing all
the Derry Girl location spots - which my niece just loved. We were so lucky to have him as our tour guide. It made our stay!

Just home from a magical trip to Ireland and taking the time to reflect on all that we experienced. A definite highlight was the walking tour we did with Gleann in Derry taking in the Bogside Murals
and the Bloody Sunday Monument. He was informative and a great communicator, his own personal story touched us all and we were so thankful we had participated in his tour. Thank you Gleann best
wishes Bryony and crew from Australia

Did the Derry Girls tour with Glenn in late July. It was a really good history of Derry combined with the humour of Derry girls. Glenn was a great guide with a wealth of knowledge and first hand
experience of the troubles. Brilliant tour and excellent value

Gleann Doherty's tour is well worthy of a listen, an educated historian from University of Ulster who tells it as it is and without a hint of bigotry. He and his family have lived the Troubles. As an
Ulster Protestant, I urge anyone who wants to grapple with the Troubles to walk the Bloody Sunday tour to understand this pivotal point with greater clarity of the facts and the suffering. It was a
privilege to be in Gleann's company. Thankyou.

I absolutely love 'Derry. Lived there from 1970-1975. Would love to go back.

Our tour with Gleann was informative and powerful. His tour was well structured and presented. His knowledge of the facts surrounding Bloody Sunday as well as the impact those events have had on his
personal life make it hard to imagine anyone more qualified to present the tour. We were honored that he shared his experiences with us. It is a rare privilege to learn about important historical
events from someone who lived through them. I recommend this tour highly.

We had a Bloody Sunday and Bogside tour with Lara on Sept 23rd, 2018 and it was fantastic!! We can't say enough about how great it was and how generous Lara was in sharing her own experiences and
understandings and her time to really help bring the issues into today's context. We would highly recommend her!!!
Anita Matson (Sunday, 15 July 2018 11:57)
My husband and I took the Bloody Sunday and Bogside Murals private tour with Gleann a couple of weeks ago. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Ireland. Speaking from his personal history
living in Bogside and from his background with a B.A Honours Degree in Irish History and Politics, Gleann was able to clearly explain the history of the Troubles in Derry to us. The fact that his
father was the the 12th man out of 13 (at the age of 31) murdered (shot in the back)on Bloody Sunday by elite British soldiers at what was supposed to be a nonviolent protest march brings poignancy
and a shocking reality to that day 46 years ago. We highly recommend a tour with Gleann.

I and three friends did the Derry Walls Tour with Lára and I would strongly recommend it. While from Armagh herself and a very pleasant and articulate young woman she lives in Derry and is a History
and Politics graduate. Given that she was dealing with four old (Irish) fogies who knew a good bit themselves it says something that we learned a lot from her. It was fascinating to get a really good
grasp of the walls and their place in Derry's history. Not to mention the existing layout of Derry looking down from the walls. Strongly recommend this tour and Lára.

We spent 90 minutes with Gleann who was so knowledgeable and gave us a glimpse into a troubled time in Derry's history. Gleann's connection to the history was palpable and made the tour all the more
powerful. We would highly recommend this tour with Gleann who was such an interesting and approachable guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and learned a lot.

anyone interested in learning about the conflict between the two conflicting parties in Northern Irelands struggle for independence will not be disappointed by Gleanns tour of Bogside..thank you
again for this heartfelt experience...

Excellent Tour on the Bogside, Bloody Sunday and the long history of difficulties in Derry. Gleann studied history and politics, knows so much about the city - but also is a catchy talker you like to
listen to. Has so many interesting stories to tell, among them the sad one of his father beeing killed on Bloody Sunday.
Gleann lives in Derry, you feel that in the guided tour. Highly recommended!

Very interesting tour from Gleann on the Bogside and his recent history.
Jonas Floyd (Wednesday, 08 February 2017 10:14)
Visite riche en informations avec sa part d'émotion qui nous implique un peu plus dans la tragédie du Bloody Sunday. Gleann nous immerge dans l'histoire de sa ville, Derry!
Merci encore, vivement conseillé.
Nathan Dombrovski (Wednesday, 08 February 2017 07:19)
Thanks to Gleann, we were a group of 15 French to visit the Bogside with him.
It was realy interesting, lot of informations about the history of the Bogside and the event that took place there.
Looking forward to make another tour with him regarding the old town history.
Susan Wright (Sunday, 31 July 2016 00:03)
Thank you Gleann for a fantastic tour that included both the walls and the Bogside. The history you shared with us was both fascinating and very emotive, particularly your personal story. Your
patience with our 9 year old was wonderful and he too learnt a great deal, and he would often share his newfound knowledge at various times through the rest of our tour of the UK! We would absolutely
recommend this tour to anyone visiting Derry. :)
