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.

I must admit that my visit to Ireland exceeded expectations. I loved the Irish people and their genuine and warm personalities. But the highlight of our visit to Ireland was the “Political Tour” in Belfast from the Black Taxi Tours. Our guide was Joel and he was extraordinary in his ability to immerse us in the “troubled” history of the... More

We were fortunate to have a private tour with Gerard in his white taxi to tour Belfast and learn so much about the history of Northern Ireland and The Troubles. This tour was so enlightening and informative. Gerard took his time and gave us an outstanding tour. This was the highlight of our Ireland vacation. We highly recommend this tour... More

John(JR) was an excellent guide. Explained the history of the "troubles" and how it impacted all who lived in Belfast. Great opportunity to see the murals and take pics. Never felt rushed. It was more than just driving around in a car...we were able to get out and walk around in the neighborhoods.

Gerard provided a fascinating political and murals tour of Belfast. We got a great education from one who knows the area very well and experienced the Troubles. Strongly recommend this tour company. Greg W. Northern Michigan University

Gerard gave us a tour of Belfast I will never forget! He showed us both sides of the city and explained the differences and the similarities in their beliefs, and took us through a history of the troubles. Thank you so much again Gerard!

Gerard is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Belfast both political as well as historical. He told us both sides of the Troubles, some personal. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a good background of Belfast.

Gerard is the best tour guide there is, period. What a fantastic, and informative, and humbling tour. He took plenty of time to explain in detail what we were seeing, and gave us a far deeper understanding of the Troubles than we could have possibly gotten anywhere else. Thank you and God bless, Gerard.

I took the political tour of Belfast with 5 family members who had varying knowledge of Belfasts' history. Gerard was our guide and was a vast wealth of knowledge. But beyond just the knowledge, his humor and use of visual media really held everyone's interest on what at many times can be difficult subjects to present. I would definitely recommend... More
