Thank you so much for the kind words. My aim is to entertain, engage and inform. If you come to a city like Belfast you'll have a great time but there are parts of our history that need illuminated.

Thanks so much Martin. It's important to remember that even at the height of the Troubles, there were people (and a lot of them) who lived lives that were not defined by the accident of their birth. Punk Rock in Belfast is a good example...More

Thank you for your kind words and I will pass them onto young Sean who like me is in his fifties! We keep the facts accurate but we illustrate through our own personal narratives. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

Arthur Magee was a very knowledgeable guide, having known Belfast all his life. He gave us interesting historical details and was a great entertainer. When two people failed to return to the group at one point he dealt with the situation very calmly.

Thank you for your lovely review. Whether it's for 1 person, 10 or a coach load of people, I love showing people my city. I also never try to turn a drama into a crisis.

Thanks Tina. So glad you enjoyed the tour. I think I cover the 'troubles' well - it's part of the story but not the only story. I try to provide the best overview of the city you'll get.

Recently visited Belfast and were fortunate to have Arthur as our guide... very informative and entertains no, good mix of history, cultural and more recent events including punks and boxers. Would recommend.

Thanks Carol. There's not one single Belfast, like any place we've a multitude of stories and characters. As you say, it's the mix, we've a past but we also hopefully have a future.
