Before we left for Belfast our driver was already checking flights arrivals and met us at the door. We were made very welcome. We were already interested in the tour but the information provided was very factual and educational. Our driver made sure all our requirements were covered and answered all questions and took a great deal of time to... More

We just completed a 1 1/2 hour tour of the 'Troubles' area of Belfast. Bobby Walsh was energetic, positive and available. He gave thorough explanations and answered any and all questions. If you aren't intimately familiar with the history of the troubles such a tour is a must- just no easy way to understand the murals without it. Bobby did... More

At the suggestion of the bartender at our hotel in Dublin, at the last minute we booked a "Black Cab" tour of Belfast. We were only in Northern Ireland for a day, so we wanted to get the most bang for our buck. Bobby Walsh was waiting for us at Belfast Central station and immediately escorted us to his traditional...

There is not enough good that can be said about this tour! Offering a personal look into and explanation of The Troubles, my guide, Tom, was thorough, unbiased and sensitive in his accounting of a history that is still so fresh in everyone's hearts and souls in Belfast. Never once did I feel any of my questions were silly or... More

Bobby gave us lots of tips on what to do and where to eat in Belfast along the way. We found the tour really interesting and it gave... More

As with many other comments on this forum, we (3 gals) were very impressed with the tour itself but particularly with Bobby's extraordinary historical insight and knowledge coupled with his sense of humour and great personality. When visiting Belfast, this tour is an absolute must and it will not leave you disappointed!

Had a fantastic tour with Bobby. He was funny, knowledgeable and told us the history through numerous interesting and real - life stories. He picked us up from our hotel and dropped us at our next destination. All in all this tour was the highlight of our weekend!

I highly recommend Bobby Walsh as your guide to the Troubles in Belfast's recent past. He tailors the tour based on your level of knowledge and interest and has an amazing memory of dates, places and names. I already knew a fair bit about the Troubles and Bobby provided his detailed personal take on events in a way no book... More
