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.

Great, engaging history tour with personally invested guide. This was the best tour I did in my two weeks in the UK. Gerard was knowledgable, personable, and very committed to giving a good tour. He took an extra hour with us to make sure we got a good picture of the struggles that have plagued Belfast. He even dropped us... More

Cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Brendan was chatty, informative, full of humour and impartial, and the 90 minutes flew by. A must-do in Belfast. Thanks, Brendan!

Organised this on behalf of a youth group of 20 from London. The first thing that struck me was how welcome they made the group feel. Non stop interaction and information, with plenty of fun thrown in along the way. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Belfast. Proved to be very flexible as we had to move our... More

Took this tour at the end of a short stay in Belfast. Picked us up at our hotel, and after the tour took us direct to the airport to fly home. Spent about two hours on the tour of the Falls Road/ Shankill Rd area, visiting murals and memorial gardens on both sides of the Peace Wall. Our driver, Brendan,... More

Excellent tour conducted by Joel. Impartial, stated the facts, plenty of interesting info with some Belfast humour to add. Although I'm from a very different background we found a common bond in our shared love of Irish history and general interest in the troubles. My girlfriend also found the tour intriguing and very enjoyable. Joel took his time, walked and... More

We had a great tour of Belfast with our tour guide Ciaran. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us an unbiased view of the history and of the current situation currently occurring in the city. It was extremely interesting to learn so much and to see everything first hand. Definitely something I would recommend to a traveler to... More

We had a wonderful experience taking a Black Taxi Tour in Belfast with our guide Joel. Firstly, he was extremely accommodating by agreeing to meet us at 8:30am on a Sunday morning. His tour was terrific, as he provided a very unbiased and informative view of the historical tensions in Belfast. He was very well organised and prepared and even... More

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.
