Absolutely WONDERFUL tour! Joe was amazing...and so very tolerant of all our questions. He managed to take a very complex issue and break it down for us then put it in terms that we actually understood!!! Everything from the first email through the whole tour experience was so easy and painless (even the price)! Thanks, Joe, for a job well... More

Belfast today seems so friendly and calm. But with our great tour guide Joe we had the chance to look behind, so see how much history is still up-to-date and can be seen: the murals, the fences... And he knew so many first hand stories to tell about, because he grew up in these times, just in the middle of... More

I took a black cab tour several years ago on my first visit to Belfast and found it to be fascinating. This time I was visiting with my wife who had never been to Northern Ireland and I wanted her to share the experience. Initially however, I was put off by the number of companies offering these tours. I didn't... More

A big thanks to Joe, who was such a lovely guide. As soon as I emailed to ask about the tour I knew that this was a great operation- replies were very quick, polite and friendly. Joe turned up at our hotel early (he was waiting in reception when we came down). I was particularly impressed that before starting the... More

I knew a lot of the history but still listening and learning from someone who actually lived through the troubles is better than any book. We had Kieran as our guide and he was brilliant. We enjoyed every minute of the tour.

Went on the Belfast Murals tour last night, 17 April. Was a really fascinating and interesting tour, in a black cab, driven by Micheal who was extremely passionate for his city, Belfast. We heard an unbiased history of Belfast, saw the wonderful murals and both sides of the wall. If you only have a few hours here, take the opportunity... More

Joe's tour was outstanding. He begins with a conversation discussing "The Troubles" and what background the visitor may or may not have. Very informative but not dry or didactic. The tour lasts 90 minutes. Ours lasted three hours because we told him that one of us is actually related to Michael Collins. He brought us to a Sinn Fein club... More

This tour was fantastic. A lot was fit into the 1.5 hours we had with John. We went on the tour hardly knowing anything and finished the tour with a good understanding of and respect for the history from the beginning up until today (from both sides). John was an excellent tour guide and very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend... More
