Wow! Marc, our driver was great. He gave us a totally impartial account of the Troubles. We are from Canada and we knew just the very basics about the Troubles. We had no idea there was still a need for the peace wall today! We learned SO MUCH. This is an absolute must-see for people visiting Belfast.

Jim took my wife and I on the tour of the Murals and Walls in Belfast. What a shock to discover that there are still walls blocking suburbs today. There had been no indication of this recently. Jim gave a totally impartial tour and I still do not know where he stands on all this.

First off, Mark our driver & guide was brilliant! I went with my two sisters in January and he gave us a great insight into the troubles. He provided a huge background which gave us more of an understanding of the past and current issues. I would recommend to anyone visiting Belfast to do this tour! :)

To cap off a week of travel in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland we chose the NI Black Taxi Tour so we could hear from a resident of Belfast about what's really been going on in the decades since Belfast's main reason for being in the news was sectarian violence. Our driver had been personally involved in the... More

My husband and I were very impressed with this tour. Jim, our guide, did a wonderful job explaining the history of the conflict and had an incredible memory. He took a balanced approach and was very accommodating to all our questions. For only 30 pounds, this is a great deal for a (maybe) once in a lifetime glimpse into what... More

If you want to know Irish history, you must know Northern Irish history as well. So don't miss this tour! Our driver, Jim, was extremely knowledgeable, fair and accommodating. I grew up in the US after my parents left Belfast in the 50s. I returned twice before, once during the troubles in 1985. I thought I had a pretty good... More

We did this tour after deciding to do a day trip to Belfast from Kildare. We emailed when we departed and received prompt responses and had our tour booked in before we were half way there. Our guide Mark picked us up at a location of our choosing and gave us a great insight into the political history of Belfast.... More

Despite living in Northern Ireland my entire life, this tour was a real eye opener... And great value for money; a two hour intimate guided tour for £40 between the four of us. The driver couldn't have been friendlier and was able to answer any questions we had. If you want a taste of authentic Northern Irish history go on... More
