Since i live here in Belfast I have seen numerous things. My friends from my hometown in the Netherlands came over for a visit and we decided to do a political tour since none of us ever did something like that. There are way to many offers for tours so we decided to go with this one since my roommate... More

We had a really thought provoking and informative tour from our guide, Joe. We felt it would be mad to come to find Belfast and not get a little bit under the surface of its shocking recent history and Joe's very personal but balanced tour of the murals and either side of the "peace wall" was just what we were...

I can't say enough good about John and his tour. He was so friendly, knowledgeable and passionate. I know lots of companies offer these tours, but I would be amazed if any were as in depth and as fascinating as John's. He gives a thorough and even-handed account of the troubles and the history before and after and is a... More

I'm not much of a history buff, but having not been to the city before, wanted to know more about it. A "rep" at the Jury's Inn recommended John as one of the best guides out there. My dad had been on one of these black cab tours previously but said he'd come along for my sake. So with two... More

Hi Elgan thank you for the review, its a good point you raise re your father getting a much more indepth tour compared to the "other" company he used, local, certified and knowledgeable guides are the only way to experience our history, we are confident we do lead the way on this. thank you joe More

My mother had asked to be taken to Belfast for her 60th birthday and told me she was keen to do a Black Taxi tour of the Belfast murals. I was keen to do one myself and sent a booking enquiry via the Tour website. I received a very quick response and had excellent communication with our tour guide, Joe... More

Have to say that the whole tour was amazing and it went too fast. Our tour guide Joe was brilliant, so friendly and engaging. He gave a balanced view on murals from both sides and shared personal stories. I thought he explained the history so well and went back centuries to give a greater perspective of the conflict. Joe was... More

Joe was an amazing guide, I laughed and cried throughout the tour. It was so interesting to go on a tour and hear the stories from someone who has lived through the history and willing to share their experiences. Joe picked us up and dropped us off right outside our hotel, the cost of the tour was very cheap, I... More
