Owner description: Belfast black taxi tours: new game of thrones/causeway full day tours. As the official belfast attractions we have been offering our award winning tours for over 15 years. Even though our beautiful city is now almost unrecognisable from the bomb ravaged city of over 35 years ago, we feel it is important to help everyone understand what life in belfast was like during the dark years of ‘the troubles.’ By taking you on a tour of the now world famous hotspots, such as the republican(ira) murals of the falls road and the protestant(u.f.f &u.v.f) murals of the shankill road and by the use of important evidence such as newspapers, photos, videos and even plastic bullets we hope to paint a vivid picture of what life was like for the everyday belfast resident. You will travel in style through the back streets of our city in an old vintage london black taxi cab as our guides, who all lived through the troubles, help you understand over 800 years of british / irish political history. We offer full day giants causeway & game of thrones from your cruise ship/hotels etc.

Firstly we must apologise for my delay in placing this on Trip Advisor. My cousins from Canada booked a tour with this company in October 2014. Although I am from N.Ireland and I used to the political and religous divides and did not wish to take the tour in the first place but my cousins insisted to take a black... More

We have heard about the black cab tours and wanted to go on one. We picked this one by accident because the first one we called had a busy signal. We got a driver that had been in the thick of it all. This tour takes you through both sides of the conflict and gives you a great deal of... More

We brought my 78 year old mum over to Belfast as she had not been back since she left 58 years ago. We decided to take a black cab tour (which was actually white). Our driver was Gerard who was very professional informative and funny, we had a few belly laughs on the way. The tour was very interesting and... More

I have done this tour twice in my travels to Belfast. The guides are genuine, informative and very knowledgeable. They answer questions and take their time in describing the history of the rebellion. It is quite emotional if you have Irish heritage to hear the challenges the citizens have lived and continue to live with Thank you!

Four of us with varying previous knowledge and level of interest in the history of Northern Ireland. Ger really was exceptional. His level of knowledge and his brilliant manner really added a lot to the tour. His personal stories, pictures and books were brilliant! So much information! Would highly recommend this to anyone/everyone!

We booked 2 of Gerard's white taxi's for our wedding and from beginning to end the whole experience was just a pleasure. Gerard made the organisation extremely painless and was beyond professional with timing, manner and photographs. We have (and still are) receiving many compliments on the originality and decoration of the white taxis and the bridesmaids/groomsmen had a great... More

There is no point doing a taxi tour of Belfast unless you learn about the political context which is quite complicated even to those of us who are Irish. This tour left us with a better understanding of the political reasons that led to The Troubles. The guide, Gerald, gave a lot of information especially explanations of situations that were... More
