My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. It started promptly at Sawer’s Deli (which would be easy to spend an hour or two in, its full to the brim with interesting food items). ‘Barney’ our chef, and guide, played his part beautifully. We learnt lots about the city and visited some lovely venues. Our only complaint would be that there wasn’t much food! We were told that one venue had not been able to accommodate the tour and it seems there was not a replacement. We ate some samples of cheese, olives and some cavier at Sawers. We then ate a few pieces of squid at Mourne’s seafood bar, we had a half pint of cider and of lager and the tour ended at St George’s Food market where we were left to explore ourselves (no food or tour included here). So, all in all, not much of a food tour. However, it was a good craic! And we enjoyed the entertainment and the walking.

A wonderful fun way to spend a morning in Belfast, we heard all about the myriad food and drink that originated in Northern Ireland and had some gorgeous grub along the way, salt and chilli squid at Mourne Seafood was a highlight for me, I'm a coeliac and I was fully catered for. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family as a great way to explore the city.

Good all around organisation, great fun, interactive without making you feel uncomfortable - taken to some great spots that we would have never found ourselves! Some lovely treats to taste too - especially the stew at the Dark Horse - delicious (as well as seeing the GoT door). Would definitely say try it - goes at a fairly brisk pace so not for the faint hearted! We were in a group of about 16 which ended at St Georges Market - overall a good way to see the city from a different and humorous historical angle - 'Barney' was great fun and delivered his role with great humour, knowledge and gusto.

Enjoyed our tour, having brought our Canadian visitors with us. A well planned and professional tour, with humour and amazing interesting facts in equal measure. Just the right length of tour to suit everyone and the price is really good value.
