About Experience Belfast
Quite simply, we provide the best overview of Belfast you will find. We cover the 'Troubles' in detail but do so in human terms using local guides to provide a personal but factually accurate and unbiased narrative. In a small group, you’ll wander through Entries, see the sights and see what’s hidden in plain sight. You’ll also be introduced to our greatest asset - the warmth and humour of the people. The tour is about the Troubles but it’s also about the future. Expect to be entertained, engaged and informed.

Thanks Marc, I really enjoyed our online tour and the fact that you could walk the tour later really helped. The tour is about Belfast obviously but I've tried these past 10 years to make the parochial universal.

A fascinating wide-ranging introduction to Belfast and The Troubles. As a storyteller and songwriter, Arthur was able to transform a morning walk into an illustrated history not only of Belfast but also of universal human concerns. I feared it would be a little depressing but,

An illustrated living history is a very good way to describe the tour thanks. Terrible things happened here but also some incredibly positive things. 'There's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in' as a great man once said and I try to reflect that on the tour.
