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. « less

Before we got on the Belfast Tour Bus we were told by a guy in a red jacket that there were extra buses laid on as they were expecting extra visitors from the Republic as it was a Public Holiday (August 4th) there. Outside Crumlin Rd Gaol our pick-up guide said that there was no seating places left on the... More

This was by far one of the most interesting and powerful things we did in all of our time in Ireland (1 month). Our guide Dermot was the best teacher we could ask for to find out about the Troubles, past and present. He was patient with all my questions and I would definitely do it again next time I'm... More

An excellent political tour of the murals. Connor was our guide who was engaging and humorous in what was at times felt a quite an emotional tour. We only have seen the news but never estimated the scale or understood the background. Connor made It a living history tour with his personal stories but also his balanced view of both... More

We decided to book a last minute tour with Belfastattractions.co.uk on Monday (Aug 11th) and we were nervous about there only being the two of us to do it, but it turned out to be a much better value than we expected. Our driver, Patrick, immediately made us feel welcome. He was both funny and very knowledgeable, told us some... More

We went to see the murals with Dermot last week. That was by far the most interesting thing we did during our stay in Belfast and we highly recommend it to everyone. Dermot was a great guide who came to pick us up 10 minutes after we've called and it was no problem bringing our 1,5 year old daughter. He... More

We loved the flexibility of this tour. We coordinated to have Gerard pick us up at the airport for a late-afternoon/evening Giant's Causeway/Game of Thrones tour. Gerard thought it best to go drop our luggage at the hotel and give us a quick murals tour in Belfast which was very interesting but not quite what we wanted out of the... More

Our group of 9 colleagues from work had a fantastic tour with Gerard and Joel. Really informative but still great craic. It was an insightful and balanced introduction for work colleagues who had not visited Northern Ireland before and worked great as a team ice breaker event as we hadn't all met previously. Well done guys. You are both a... More

If David hadn't told us he was a protestant, we would never have guessed. In a large van he took the seven of us on a "tour of the troubles", showing us the wall, the murals and memorials and told us the stories in a very balanced way. He did an excellent job, giving us insight in the conflict and... More

Originally picked out this tour on Trip Advisor after reading reviews,when arrived at tourist information who informed us they don't book Black Cab tours. Leaflets available and no real advice, leaflets a bit confusing as leaflets very similar, but after studying the local travel guide we acquired at the airport, we could luckily recognise BelfastAttractions.co.uk as the tour company we...
