We were slightly aprehensive about doing this tour as we had our 10 and 13 year old boys with us. However, Sean our driver put us instantly at ease and was so knowledgeable about " the troubles ". We all found it really powerful and interesting and Sean answered our very many questions. Our children found it really interesting too... More

As an Australian of Irish origin who has been reading about the "Troubles" for years, I discovered this tour almost by accident. Our guide Aemonn was was incredibly knowledgeable and I think, in spite of his Republican background, very objective. Whatever your background or opinions, I couldn't recommend this tour more highly.

Thomas McArdle picked us up at our hotel and took us on the political tour of Belfast as we requested. It was informative, interesting and very enlightening. His knowledge and perspective were so helpful to the information he shared. The information we get in the US about the current situation in Northern Ireland is not always totally accurate and it...

Two single, American women of Irish heritage, traveling alone for the first time. This tour was amazing. We felt extremely safe, and well taken care of. Our driver, Terry, blew my mind with his courtesy, knowledge, personal experience, and his genuine aim to please. My goal of learning (the truth) about the secretarian neighborhoods, the war, and the history of... More

We took the city tour, an amazing and unique experience to learn first-hand from those who lived through The Troubles. Our driver, Bruce, was so kind--generous with his time and knowledge and patient with our questions! Don't get turned off by negative reviews about "one-sided" opinions--this tour may be operated by a biased company, but it began with the goal... More

Myself and husband wanted to learn more about this very important part of Northern Ireland's history and we were not disappointed! Our tour guide was Jason and he told us very personal experiences of grown up in Northern Belfast. He was knowledgable about it's history and was able to give loads of information and answered our questions. The murals and... More

We had an amazing day in Northern Ireland, thanks to Eddie the driver. A scenic drive up the Antrim Coast before arriving at Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. Having our own driver enabled us to get good advice on where to eat and where to go. On to Giant's Causeway, Bushmills and Dunluce Castle with interesting information and great conversation. We had... More

I had done a 'Black Cab Tour' in Belfast before, but this by far surpassed it!! Our tour guide Tom was amazing, he had so much information to offer and was very open to any questions we had. We would highly recommend this company and Tom. A highlight of our two weeks on the island, don't miss this if you... More

We accidentally stumbled onto this company and driver. He was well informed and passionate about Ireland's political and conflict history. His in depth discussion was fairly neutral and very colorful. We left his cab feeling as if we had been a part of the city's history. We were still thinking about and discussing Tom's tour days later. Do it if... More
