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

We were in Belfast for the rugby with 2 hours on Sunday morning to find out what we could about the city and its history. A black cab together with our truly fantastic guide really was the answer. A perfect combination of getting around the city and being able to talk to someone with so much insight and personal knowledge.... More

My boyfriend and I recently had the tour with Tom Mc Nally and the experience was terrific! We are non-native speaker and knew little about the history of the Troubles . He used stories and illustration to convey the messages from murals, so that we could have a clear picture of what happened during the past years even the history... More

Given the option of yet another Titanic exhibit or a taxi tour through Belfast - we opted for the taxi tour - WOW - what an eye opening experience - all the things I didn't learn in school - Gerard (aka George) gave such a lesson on the strife (troubles) in Northern Ireland - the tour of the Peace Murals...

Gerard has an ability to arrange contacts with former prisoners that is second to none. He will facilitate your group meeting with those who participated in and survived 'The Troubles'. Be careful that you are not rushed.

A great experience with a very kind and knowledgeable guide (Brendan) that for a very worth 30 GBP gives you the whole history of Belfast and the Troubles. Getting used to the accent might be a little bit challenging at first, but it makes the whole experience more entertaining. Se non sapete l'inglese o il vostro livello di inglese e'... More

We were taken round the Shankill and Falls Road areas by Tom, who was friendly, extremely well informed and a perfect guide. While the subject matter is obviously rather grim, it was handled in a sensitive and even handed manner, with plenty of light-hearted banter as well. The tour really is unmissable, an amazing opportunity to get real insight into... More
