Brought a group of over 50 students on this tour and it was excellent. It really opened their eyes to the real history of Belfast. Our guide John was great and a local so it was truly authentic. A must do when in Belfast.

We recently visited Belfast and we were recommended to do Joe's Tour, and we were delighted it was recommended to us. We found Joe himself to be a gentleman. Joe's explanations and knowledge of Belfast's history was very informative. Joe's tour was certainly one of the top highlight's of our trip to Belfast. Would definately recommend others to take this... More

I recently visited Belfast taking a trip around my old haunts from away back in the late 60's when I lived and worked in Belfast. Have not been back properly since for obvious reasons. I really enjoyed the trip and the fact that the taxi took me to places I was familiar with at that time, such as a large... More

We we lucky to take a tour with Joe McCullough, he was very knowledgable and took us to see the murals as well as the neighborhood. Joe had personal stories and his trusty I-PAD to show history in great pictures. He gave my boys a detailed lesson on the history of the Troubles and was very upbeat about his city,... More

My wife and I did a tour with Joe in late September this year with Joe. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and rank it as one of the very best things we did over a 4-week period in Europe. Joe’s understanding and explanation of the history of the area is second to none and his tour is enthralling, with many... More

On 10/8/2014 My husband and I took a Black cab tour with Joe McCullough as our driver. We had read in TripAdvisor to be cautious of what tour to take. Joe said if we were not satisfied we would owe him nothing. The tour was amazing. It was a highlight of our trip! Joe was very informative of the area,... More

We started this tour from the Titanic Museum. What an eye opener. From modern smart Belfast to the real city within minutes. The 'Peace Walls' are an extremely scary reminder of continuing hostility. It is both fascinating and worrying but we felt safe at all times. The Murals are amazing . You do however see where the 'troubles' started. Cannot... More

John our tour guide was fantastic, showing us all the murales, memorial gardens, peace walls and most importantly tells you the stories behind them, was a fascinating insight. We went for the 2.5 hour tour and the time flew by, would recommend doing the longer tour. John also took photos of us at the sights so we can share the... More

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. My partner Tom and I took this tour in September 2014. Joe McCullough collected us at our hotel and explained what the tour would entail and what we were to expect. That we would visit the Catholic and Protestant areas of West Belfast and view the murals that depicted some of the stories... More
