Tour bus of the city took in Shankill Road which was a focus in the news in the 60's. I would recommend any visitors to the lovely city of Belfast to undertake this tour.

If you're visiting Belfast, you need to see Shankill Rd and Crumlin Rd. Drive yourself, take a private taxi tour or the hop on /off bus but do it. You'll feel totally safe. It's hard to believe that this used to be a war zone and still sporting gates that close every night. Was surprized that neighbourhoods are still segregated... More

As recommended by many, a great way to see and get a basic understanding of the troubles is to take a guided tour of the heart of the area. Depending on your tour guide, you may get a excellent first hand experience of what went on and what it was like to live thru the violent times. You'll also see... More

The history and personality of this incredible city should not be missed. Belfast has had a reputation of being a dangerous place. Fear not... it should not be missed. Northern Ireland is as diverse as it is beautiful!

Very heart wrenching trip to Shankill road. Visiting Belfast with friends and trip made with locals who provided so much info about the troubles past and present.felt a bit intrusive and guilty wandering around but also privileged to be shown some amazing features where there have been and still are some very brave people who have lived an amazing history...

This place is so heart rendering I'm too young to really know about the troubles but I'm so glad we took the time to drive here. Think a tour guide would've been better. It's surreal the divide still visible. Amazing murals which words of many make you really think about things that have gone before.

As a Southerner, I've seen this road on tv all my life & it has chilled me. Going there & seeing all the Unionism right up in my face was a totally mind-blowing experience. This is an absolute MUST for anyone visiting Belfast.

Very poor, not much to see unless you are into bad memories of the troubles, time to move on and offer something different for all the people who visit there
