On a recent Birthday trip to Belfast I requested to do a tour of the areas and so my family booked this up for us. We had Stevie as our guide and all I can say is Brilliant!! As a child growing up in the 80's I recall many images on the news of the troubled times in Northern Ireland... More

I took the tour this morning and was completely impressed by the knowledge and style of my very professional personal guide. I learned a great deal, haring only seen what was portrayed in the media about the Troubles while I was growing up. Until I saw the gates, the walls, the murals and the symbolism, I had no idea...

We were recommended to take this tour by a source that is very familiar with travel activities in Northern Island. Not sure you can find anyone with Joe's depth of knowledge of Belfast's history that would be willing to take you on a tour like this. His own experience obviously provides a very unique look into what life was like... More

This tour passed my expectations. Joe, our tour guide, was passionate and enthusiastic, he went out of his way to deliver facts, answer questions and discuss at length area's that interested us most. Compared to other tour groups doing the "same" tour as us - this one seemed much better. We were explained everything in great detail and advised on... More

I have to say I was blown away by Joes tour..which was so even handed, informative yet deeply personal. His dept of knowledge and understanding was second to none.. Yet we felt able to ask him the most arbitrary questions . He could not have been kinder and funnier and went out of his way to make the whole trip... More

We'd heard about this tour so made it the first thing to do when we arrived in Belfast. I'd seen the Belfast riots on the news when I was growing up and had thought most of the 'trouble' was somewhat in the past. I couldn't have been more wrong. Our driver was very knowledgable about the area and its history,... More

My American friend and I had the pleasure of taking a taxi tour with Brian a couple of weeks ago and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm pretty well read on Irish history and can attest that Brian's facts were accurate and enthusiastically delivered. He is a local who's spent some time away from Belfast, giving him an interesting perspective... More

While touring in Belfast one of the things on the top of my list was a tour of the murals. Our driver guide was able to hook us up with Joe who gives the most outstanding tour of the murals. Since we were on a private tour of Ireland our driver guide called ahead to Joe and instead of us... More

I found the black taxi tours to be an extremely interesting insight into "The Troubles" and the unusual history of the ongoing feud between the loyalists and nationalists. Gerry, our tour guide, offered a lot of personal experiences from growing up in these turbulent times and even pointed out a couple of prominent ex-IRA and Sinn Fein members that we... More
