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

Tours are easy to book the day-of and are paid by cab, not person (therefore it's 30£ for 1 person, or 15£ each for 2 people, etc). The tour had great information and a good balance of driving, listening to history, and walking around the murals in Belfast. Obviously there's over 2000 murals but the tour picked some very iconic... More

My husband, family and friends were on a cruise and one of the stops was Belfast. After many hours of research and comparing reviews, my husband set up this WONDERFUL tour that was not part of the ships offerings! From the very start our tour guide ( David Warren) shared a mix of interesting history with a mix of personal... More

As a tour guide from Derry we were looking forward to our day trip to Belfast. We had booked a taxi tour with Gerard. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour with expert guidance and inside knowledge of the area. Very entertaining and value for money. Would definitely recommend and would use again. GRMA.

Fantastic tour by Gerard who took much longer than planned and went out of his way to explain the turbulent years of the troubles in a balanced and incisive way. His narrative was sprawling but by the end he had pulled all the desperate strands together with great skill. I intend to do this tour again it was so good... More

Amazing tour by Gerard. He took us to the most representative (political) places and we learnt a lot with his touching explanations. By far the best way of knowing the history that the streets of Belfast have hosted through the years.

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.

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
