Joe was a wonderful tour guide for seeing the West Belfast murals and teaching us so much about the history of the area. We both loved hearing Joe's stories and learned so much that we will take with us about The Troubles and the people who lived through that period. Also - booking the tour was flawless and it was...

Booked Joe personally after reading earlier reviews. So glad we did. He was so informative, unbiased and kept it all not too serious. Very appropriate for the three generations in our group. Joe kept in touch weeks before our tour and as promised picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off at The Crumlin jail at the end.... More

Very flexible with booking. We requested a tour at our hotel and John was ready 15 minutes later. The tour provided a fair and detailed history of the troubles in Northern Ireland. I learned a lot and it was the most worthwhile cultural experience I have had whilst in Belfast. John was friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel very... More

Thought this was a very good tour. A particular point I'd like to make was that Joe (who I had booked with) was very flexible and accommodating, and allowed us to book at whatever time of the day was best for us. Excellent customer service. If you are planning on doing a mural tour I would definitely recommend this company... More

The tour is very thought provoking. The 2 cabbies who took us around had two slightly different views as one was in his 40's and the other in his 50's. There experiences growing up in the Troubles is what really brings the tour alive.
