We went on the red bus city tour as we do in every city we visit all over the world. This tour was the most interesting, entertaining and well dialogued trip we have experienced. We were given detailed history of the whole area before ,during and after the troubles and in depth descriptions of the new development of a very optimistic Belfast. Excellent...not to be missed.
