“Rodney Ferguson’s two and half hour walking tour of Cave Hill, outside Belfast Castle, turned out to be a wonderful experience.


Rodney is a very scholarly, erudite person, his enthusiasm shines through  and brings all his knowledge alive.


He had pulled together the most interesting historical  facts and stories which brought the walk alive. The walk is magnificent in its own right - majestic views everywhere. How wonderful then to have someone to give them a context beyond their immediate beauty and presence. 


Accompanied by glorious birdsong, ancient trees and rocks – the walk was mesmeric.


A huge thank you to Rodney – such a friendly, modest and kind man – who became vibrant and excitable when engaging with such exciting subject matter.


If you’re fairly fit, love history and enjoy the company of a good, convivial guide – this is the trip for you – Jenny Mosley”.
