A fantastic experience! I had been in touch with Joe about a month before our trip to arrange pick-up, drop-off etc, and everything worked out perfectly - we even paid a visit to the area where my grandad grew up. The trip is an experience in itself. It is one thing to have read about the troubles, and to have... More

The black taxi is a good way of touring West Belfast, but get them to take you Twinbrook and Andi-town. But there are other areas of Belfast not visited they are the Ormo (Ormeau road), Market area and the Short Strand. But the Belfast (black taxi) Mural Tour is very good, the tour drivers have very good knowledge so ask... More

It was very enjoyable and informative, this guy knows his stuff and explains everything with great detail. He kept us tuned in to his tour by cracking a joke or two to lighten the mood as well as leaving all questions answered in great detail. Very Enjoyable, Highly recommend

This was a great trip and everything about the murals was explained perfectly. If you did not know anything about it, you would understand why the murals were there and what they were about.

John McConville was an incredible guide for this incredible tour. Very enlightening and emotional; very important living history everyone in the world should know about. John was a walking encyclopedia and shared his knowledge in a way that was accessible and not intimidating despite the heavy and complex subject matter. A tour I will never forget.

Joe was very accommodating as well as being completely informative. He was able to provide entertainment and understanding at every stop, and every corner of Belfast. It was well worth the time to take this tour and learn more about the history of the city. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Belfast for the first time with a few... More
