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

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

I was in Belfast just for a day with 2 teenagers and a pre-teen so they could learn a little about the history of the area and the Troubles. This tour was fantastic! The kids loved it and learned so much in a way that really engaged them. I enjoyed it too, and also learned a lot. Bobby adapted it... More

We took the political/mural tour with Bobby and this was the best tour we had in a month in Ireland and northern Ireland without a doubt. Bobby picked us up right on time and took us to all of the sites we were interested in and gave us insightful information about the areas and how the troubles had unfolded. His... More
