A must for anyone travelling to Belfast. Driver was called John and he was fantastic. Knew all about the troubles and the atrocities and bravery of both sides of the divide, gave a very balanced outlook on what this city has been through. A great history lesson and thoroughly recommended to anyone visiting,

So glad I managed to do the tour (and persuaded my dad to come along!) Was one of the best tours I have been on. Really interesting and Joe is a fantastic guide. Knowledgeable and professional. Interesting to see geographically how it all fits together with the recent history. Highly recommend it! Thanks from Jonathan and Steve.

My partner and I joined a group and did the tour together. We were all very naive about the history of Belfast and how fresh and still relevant today a lot of it is. Anyway Joe clued us all in as much as possible in only a sort and insightful tour. He made it personal with stories of his family... More

A fabulous black taxi tour of the political murals of Belfast, both Heankill and Falls Roads. Joe is a wonderful guide, who gives a very thoughtful and insightful commentary on the recent past. Very knowledgable, answering all our questions and giving a personal but unbiased narrative of the 70s, 80s and 90s. He also kept the 11, 13 and 15... More
