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 did the Black Taxi tour in October 2014 and we had Mal as our tour guide. Mal was a great tour guide - very enthusiastic and full of great information. The tour gave such a great insight into the political and religious history/turmoil of Belfast. The only negative about the tour was that the particular black cab we had,... More

The Belfast Wall Murals tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Ireland. Our guide, Patrick, was informative and friendly, and I believe the experience of learning about Belfast through visiting the murals and hearing his stories would have beaten learning about the same things in a museum or via a book or documentary. During the booking process,... More

We booked the two white cabs for our wedding in September and I really cannot recommend Gerard highly enough! The cabs are extremely well maintained, they look beautiful in photographs and are perfect if you want something a little bit different for your wedding. They are very reasonably priced also. Gerard was brilliant and he recommended great locations to get... More

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Belfast. The tour is very interesting both if you are visiting Ireland from abroad or if you are from Ireland. There are a number of companies running this type of tour and in general it costs around £30 per group and the tour lasts around an hour and a half. We... More

We spent an incredible day in Belfast with Michael Armstrong from BelfastAttractions. We not only saw all the main sights in and out of the city (and they are magnificent) but got 8hrs of mindblowing insight into the political situation, both past and present.Michael gives his guests a personal account of the history of Belfast and the IRA that leaves...

We took this tour in July 2014. While we had been to Belfast numerous times before, we had never taken this tour. I was particularly keen to take it as my grandfather was originally from Belfast. This was the most informative tour I think I have ever taken. It is definitely a MUST!! Dermot was our guide and he is... More

We stumbled across this taxi tour company in the Belfast monthly guide and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Despite being a bit sweaty on the hottest day of the year, our guide (who headed up the company) drove us in his shiny white taxi to various parts of the city to see key landmarks and locations...

He made the tour very enjoyable and interesting, although it is about a very severe subject. You get a better understanding of Belfast's history and the troubles and it's definitely worth doing the tour. Thank you! Bríd

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
