Spent a fascinating 90 minutes with Bobby Walsh who took us on the full black taxi tour of Belfast and the troubles. Knowledgable and passionate about the history and the characters. Sobering but very informative and he dropped us at a good pub for a Sunday Session. Well worth the small price. I would highly recommend Bobby and cabtoursni.

We took this tour in different taxis of the same company (we were a large group) and all enjoyed it thoroughly. I really recommend it! The driver was really straightforward but we liked it, and he explained the places very well. It was a very interesting experience! A MUST DO in Belfast!

Had a wonderful tour of Belfast with our guide Paddy, he was very knowledgeable and made the trip really interesting. We stopped off at quite a few landmark areas and Paddy gave us the history behind the murals and areas of interest. I would recommend this trip over the open top bus as its more personal and you are able... More

Our cab tour with Bobby was a highlight of our trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. Bobby picked us up right from the train station and we spent the next few hours with him getting to know Belfast, its history and its "troubles," from a truly unique perspective. Bobby's knowledge of the city is exceptional and he offered an insider's... More

What a fantastic experience. Bobby picked us up right at Belfast Central and was enthusiastic, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. There's no way we would have seen these neighborhoods and heard these stories without Bobby as our guide and driver. So glad people like Bobby are preserving and sharing the history of The Troubles, especially in such a personal way. This... More

Although Paddy, our tour guide, kept saying that we was just a taxi driver - he was really so much more! Excellent historical background provided for murals and everything relating to Belfast and the troubles, personal stories and very willing tro answers any sort of questions! And inspite of all the horror, always a quick joke and a positive outlook... More

A friend and I took a black taxi tour during our one night stay in Belfast. We knew very little of 'The Troubles' that took place for so many years in this area. Paddy was our taxi driver and so knowledgable on the events. He had an excellent way of telling the stories and facts and never rushed the tour.... More
