Belfast black taxi tours: new game of thrones/causeway full day tours. As the official belfast attractions we have been offering our award winning tours for over 15 years. Even though our beautiful city is now almost unrecognisable from the bomb ravaged city of over 35 years ago, we feel it is important to help everyone understand what life in belfast was like during the dark years of ‘the troubles.’ By taking you on a tour of the now world famous hotspots, such as the republican(ira) murals of the falls road and the protestant(u.f.f &u.v.f) murals of the shankill road and by the use of important evidence such as newspapers, photos, videos and even plastic bullets we hope to paint a vivid picture of what life was like for the everyday belfast resident. You will travel in style through the back streets of our city in an old vintage london black taxi cab as our guides, who all lived through the troubles, help you understand over 800 years of british / irish political history. We offer full day giants causeway & game of thrones from your cruise ship/hotels etc.

Belfast tour

Gerard did a great job - really like his personal stories. Got to see areas of Belfast we never would have seen or even known about otherwise.

Our tour guide JR was very knowledgeable, friendly and explained all the murals and polictal history in an easy to understand way. He was unbiased and expressed views from both sides of the conflict. This tour is highly recommended for anyone visiting Belfast - you won't regret it.

I would definitely recommend Belfast Attractions! I did a "Black Cab"/political history tour of Belfast and my tour guide was JR (John). He was really great! He was very animated and very knowledgeable. He pointed out a lot of little things to us that other guides might have skipped and was a lot of fun and joked around with us,... More

The tour was great and JR was an awesome tour guide. He explained the political background in great details and was very passionate about the history. He was also up for a bit of a banter, so time was flying and he kept us on our feet from the beginning to the end. I can highly recommend the tour. Not... More

We were a family of 9 with teens and little ones. Tommy and J.R. were our guides and they gave us an historical tour we will never forget. Historians, drivers, and photographers...they did it all. It was so interesting and they answered all of our questions in a friendly and patient manner. Thanks guys from the Wantland's in Oklahoma!

We got married in Belfast city center and Gerard's white taxi cab was the perfect mode of transport for our big day! I can't compliment Gerard and his white cab highly enough, not only did he turn up to my parents house with plenty of time removing one more stressful element to the day, but he knew exactly where to...

The highlight of our weekend trip to Belfast was the impressive Political / Mural Taxi Tour, especially the knowledge and insight provided by our friendly and passionate driver, JR. A thorough and unbiased 90-minute journey detailing the history, personalities, tragedies and humanity seen through the eyes of the people literally living on both sides of the wall during the Troubles....

My husband and I were greatly impressed by the unbiased and educated Black Cab driver, JR, on our tour of murals in Belfast. It was one of the highlights of our trip due almost exclusively to JR, though the comfortable cab and pickup/ dropoff at our hotel helped!!

We arranged for an early morning tour of the "Troubles" areas of Belfast. Unfortunately we didn't have phone service at the time, but Belfastattractions made it easy to arrange a tour via e-mails, even at the last moment. Our guide Bren was very knowledgeable and very friendly as he took us all around the areas and explained, thoroughly, everything we... More
