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

Our driver Dermot was great. He presented the explanation of the politics like a professional and was very knowledgeable. The tour is enjoyable and comfortable but still allows the visitor to sense the tension of the political climate. I can't say I'd feel I had experienced Belfast without doing a tour and this one was perfect. Our group of 6... More

Anyone going to Belfast should take this excellent tour. Having experienced The Troubles firsthand, Gerard understands the historical context well and did a great job helping us understand it with his personal photographs and newspaper clippings. Our family highly recommends this tour. We only had a day and had trouble deciding between this tour and the Giant's Causeway visit. We... More

Colm was an excellent guide and did a wonderful job customizing our tour according to our group's preferences. One of our friends was interested in seeing some... More

We took this tour (The Troubles) with Dermott on Monday the 7th of July and really enjoyed it. Dermott was knowledgeable and friendly and knew Belfast like the back of his hand. As a lover of social history it was a fascinating insight into the not too distant history of a beautiful city and a look at the difficulties it... More

We took two tours--"Political" and "Belfast City". Gerard was our guide and he is extremely knowledgeable about the city and the "troubles". He has pictures, newspaper articles and stories. He even gave us some book titles, movie titles and books on the topics we were most interested in. We thought the presentation was balanced and fair to all sides. He... More

Excellent, excellent tour given by Gerard. He picked us up at our B&B and proceeded to explain the murals, troubles and history of Belfast. He told us past and current information, showed us personal pictures and share newspaper articles. This is a must when in Belfast and Gerard is the best.
