We were originally scheduled to do a free walking tour but opted instead to book one with Dr. Stephen Goss... we could not have been more pleased. With this tour you’ll get a real historian providing accurate and reliable information in a fun and engaging conversation. We were lucky and ended up getting a private tour with Stephen and he went out of his way to make us feel welcome and answered all of our questions. You will be tempted to go with the “free” tours but just remember you’ll get what you pay for! For a nominal fee you’ll get the best there is in Belfast!

We joined Stephen in a tour today and were very lucky to find that we were his only guests. He gave us a perfect balance of enough and interesting information without the overload that can happen on a tour. His knowledge is excellent and he was able to answer all our questions with a clear depth of knowledge. We are so happy with the tour we have booked another tour of Belfast centred on the troubles.

Fantastic tour - I was lucky enough to have a solo 2-hour walking tour with Stephen, he is very personable, knowledgable and an engaging storyteller. It was particularly interesting asking him about his academic research into Belfast during the Cold War, and also going into Belfast's often-forgotten radical liberal history. The tour is very well constructed to cover the full sweep of Belfast history, and Stephen was happy to answer in depth all of the various questions I had. Well worth paying a few pounds extra for a tour of this calibre, highly recommended.

Recently did a walking tour of Belfast with local historian Dr Stephen Goss. Couldn’t recommend it more highly. He knows the history of this city unbelievably well. Very engaging and is happy to answer any questions.

Stephen took us on a private walking tour of Dunluce Castle, which is on the Northern tip of Ireland. This castle is steeped in fascinating history, and we so enjoyed listening to Stephen's animated explanations of what transpired in this area over hundreds of years. Stephen is a learned historian and no question from us went unanswered - he knows his stuff, that's for sure. If I visit Ireland again, I will certainly use Goss Tours again.
