Great tour. Have been to Belfast in the 1970s so the tour made a great impression on me. Sad that the town and people had to go through this and the tour summed things very well and now have a deeper understanding of The Troubles in Northern Ireland. Home to ancestors.

Joe McCullough's tour of the Belfast Murals was the highlight of our visit to Northern Ireland. He provided a balanced, in-depth history of the Troubles during the 90 minute tour. Hearing his personal stories, complemented by his iPad pictures, brought the history to life in a way reading placards in a museum never will. He described the story behind each... More

An absolutely fantastic tour. Myself, my mother and sister did it during the Halloween midterm and we thoroughly enjoyed it. This was purely down to the tour guide Joe, who was a fantastic guide, he picked us up near the bus station and gave us an informative background to the troubles before we even set off on the tour. He... More

This was a fascinating tour and the highlight of our stay in Belfast. Our guide, Joe McCullough, provided very moving personal details as well as a fairly balanced overview of the Troubles in Belfast. It was a powerful experience, and brought to life the story that I have followed for many years. Joe's collection of photographs provided a stark contrast... More

My black cab tour with Joe was the highlight of my time in Belfast! He was incredibly knowledgeable and kind and gave a very informative and engaging account of the troubles. The photographs he brought along helped put things in context, as did all his added commentary of the political murals! Definitely do this tour when in Belfast!!!

Arranging the tour was so simple with Joe being very accommodating. During the tour Joe gave a personal and balanced account of events I knew little about in a fair and unbiased way. We all felt privileged to sign the peace wall and hopeful for Northern Ireland's future. The tour was the highlight of our holiday. Thank you

I had an excellent tour and feel I learned a lot about the Troubles. Joe was really informative. He was clearly well prepared, had old photos to show as well as the 'real' sites. He took great pains not to take sides about what had happened. He talked very knowledgeably about the newer murals (done in the past couple of... More

A lot of other reviewers have described how nice and informative Joe was. That's all true; what really impressed me was Joe's willingness to really dive deeply into the content. I asked him some pretty tough questions about the conflict, and he answered them with authenticity and objectivity. He spoke through the lens of his own experiences, and was also... More
