It was a verry interesting tour, especially for the young People in our groupe. They learned a lot about Belfast history. Thank you Joe. Tina and members of the Group.

Fantastic interesting trip visiting the Murals of Belfast. With great enthusiasm, Stevie took us through the history of the Troubles from the very beginning up to the present day. Recommended all who wish to expand their historical horizon.

John was one of the most inspiring people I have met. His honesty and resiliancy is unshakable. Leaving Belfast without doing this tour is simply put...stupid. :)

John provided us with an excellent amount of information, insight and detail regarding the history of Belfast spanning back at least 400 years. The time on the tour flew by as we learned about Loyalist and Republican points of view and got out of the cab and observed murals up-close. John kept our attention with respectful attention to the details... More

Joe is a fabulous guide who presents the issues in Belfast in a concise, clear and understandable dialogue. We were driven around in his London Style taxi and Joe explained the significance of the Murals. We visited the Catholic side and the Protestant side separated by a wall. We never were rushed. Joe used his IPAD to show us multiple... More

My wife and I had only a few days to spend in Northern Ireland. We had booked a tour with another guide and arranged to meet him at Jury's Inn. As I stood there in the rain having just realized that I'd turned up late for the tour I'd booked and our driver was nowhere about, Joe jumped into the... More

I booked this mural tour in order to learn more about the culture of the murals and their history as I'm writing a dissertation on them at the moment. Joe was our taxi tour guide and we couldn't have asked for a friendlier, non-biased, reliable and knowledgable source to guide us through them. He showed us older photos too so... More

As if the tour wasnt enough, the movie recommendations you gave us ensured we can continue to educate ourselves. You do an extremely important job and look forward to bringing more friends and...

As part of a research trip to Belfast last week, I ended up going on a taxi tour of Belfast's murals with Joe from Belfast Mural Tours, and can honestly say I can't imagine having a better, more exhilarating, or informative experience with any other company. From the first moment of email contact, Joe was helpful, flexible and accommodating, and... More
