Joe told the story behind each mural and brought personal experience and that of friends and family into each explanation. To experience West Belfast through picture and Joe's commentary will live with... More

I booked this tour with Joe McCullough after a recommendation by a friend. Joe was a fantastic guide and gave a great synopsis of the history in Northern Ireland. The tour really gave me a better insight into the troubles of NI. Growing up in the south I only read about things in the paper. I would highly recommend booking... More

The Black Cab tour was most certainly both informative and enjoyable. If there was one way I would want to share the history of my country, this would be the way to go. Stevie, our guide, was really cool and the passion and knowledge about Belfast was evident from his narration. His information about all the murals was highly helpful... More

My family did this tour with Joe McCullough a few days ago. I could not praise Joe highly enough. He was friendly, interesting and very funny. As well as seeing murals from both side of the divide Joe had lots photos on his ipad of how the streets looked before, during and at the height of "the Troubles". Seeing pictures... More

This was an excellent tour and the perfect way to start our visit to Belfast. John, our guide, was very friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. I feel he gave a very unbiased and fair overview of the history of the Troubles in Belfast. This company was great to book with and were very accommodating. This is the only way to see... More

This is decidedly, not only the best tourist tour I have ever done, but a fabulous, almost life changing experience in itself. I did know quite a bit about the Troubles before doing this tour, but nothing beats the inside stories of someone who lived through them. Belfast will never look quite the same to me now I realize what... More

Seeing the Murals in Belfast is something I've always wanted to do, we came across Joe Mccullough in the city centre in his black cab and decided to go with him. Tour cost £10 each for a 90 minute tour. Joe had lived through the troubles in northern Ireland and provided us with an in-depth and complete background with a... More
