This was a great way to discover more about the Troubles. Barry was the perfect guide, friendly and informative. The weather was not so friendly but we were able to do certain sections from inside the car. The only thing I would change is that I would recommend doing this trip at the start of your visit to Belfast to give greater context to everything that you experience afterwards. Fascinating.

Thanks for the Review Adam! It was nice to meet you and John. Our Private Tours cover all of the history including the Troubles and all of our tour guides worked as taxi drivers during the conflict and have a wealth of experience and Information to share with our customers! Barry 😃

Barry gave us an incredible tour of Falls Road and Shankill Road area, but the tour was much more than that. Starting out with Celtic history, he explained how the Ireland as an island had evolved, major historical events, all of which led up to the Troubles and today. My four kid—who know little of Irish history—were mesmerized and found a deep connection between what Barry shared and the American civil rights movement and civil rights issues today. Barry has personally experienced the Troubles and brings a personal perspective without maligning one side or the other. His tour included the IRA museum, a hidden gem with artifacts that will some day be in a much larger museum of Irish history. Very generously, Barry extended our two-hour tour to three hours so that we could see more of the lesser-known historic sites.

An excellent tour of West Belfast, and insight into the troubles. Barry was an excellent guide, firstly taking time to explain some of the history of Ireland and Northern Ireland, leading to the troubles I grew up seeing reported back on TV in England in the 70s onwards. A truly humbling experience, particularly getting a perspective of both sides of the conflict. Highly recommended to anyone interested in wanting to understand more about the history of the troubles, however much you might think you know today. My 15 year old son equally found the tour informative and enthralling.

Our tour guide, Barry, was very knowledgable and passionate about his home town of Belfast. We got a great insight into the history of Belfast from both sides of the wall. Would highly recommend this tour if you’re visiting the city to hear about the past from a local and have fun along the way!

What a wealth of knowledge we were given in two short hours! My 17 year old daughter and I took this tour on our second day in Ireland, not really knowing the details of the 852 years of conflict between these two groups, Boy, did Barry fill us in on so much history and personal experience that by the time we left we were in shock and very saddened with what we learned. Are we glad we took this tour? ABSOLUTELY! We will never forget the things we saw and the stories we heard. Barry did such a wonderful job of keeping us engaged (not once did my daughter think to get on social media--she was mesmerized and hung on to his every word). We thoroughly enjoyed the pace of the trip, efficiency of the time, and comfort and safety of Barry's guidance. It makes me want to read more about this unfortunate part of history.

Barry was so informative and gave us a detailed history of Northern Ireland, right back to Henry VIII’s creation of Protestantism. He was so good at giving an unbiased account of the troubles and gave us time to see lots of murals and sights. Easy pickup and drop off too. Recommend!

Absolutely loved the Guided Tour facilitated by the extremely knowledgeable Barry. We learned such a rich but a distressing part of history our Irish men, women and children were forced to live through for 30 years. The murals painted throughout the Falls Road tell the story experienced by a population who were subjected to torture and suffering which hopefully will never be revisited on these people or society again. Peace and good will be forever the future of Ireland's 32 counties.

Just returned from an excellent and highly informative afternoon spent in Belfast with Barry. Barry’s tour is not only rich with historical details, but his personal connection to the stories and history he’s telling make the experience all the better. I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone who is visiting Belfast even just for a day; if you do anything whilst you’re here, do Barry’s tour. Easily the best guided tour I’ve ever taken.
