What an amazing find! Belfast is one of these unique cities where the walls are a canvas and the City an open-air Gallery. Our tour was conducted by local artist WeeNull her passion and love for both the art pieces but also the evolution and approach of the street art fair the complicated relationships between graffiti and street art artists, the charities and the progress made in recent years added an extra level of awe and appreciation of the great art. The story of her defaced art and how she bounced back and the meaning behind WeeNulls work were also inspirational.

Well after today, I have certainly changed my opinion on street art and artists. Being of the older generation, my former opinion was based on youngsters having to much spare time, an aerosol paint spray or three and little talent. Ray’s very enthusiastic and informative tour is a must for anyone visiting Belfast. The artwork, the time ,effort and research undertaking by the artists is astonishing and the finished articles are just amazing. Well done to everyone involved. Thank you Ray for a very enjoyable 2 hour trip.

This was a very interesting tour with our guide and a skilled painter "Verz" as well as our wellbeing adviser from Queen's University Belfast (QUB), to see the street art in Belfast city centre. It was a chance to notice to all those emotions and colours used in the street art and open a new window in life.
100% recommend.

I have to admit that I was never an avid art enthusiast, least of all when that art is painted on walls with a spray can, so had reservations about attending this event… but it was nothing short of fabulous! I have walked these streets a thousand times and never noticed the artwork, which now seems incredible to me as the pieces of art are so stunning. Tim was a fantastic guide- not only was he friendly and welcoming but his knowledge of the artists, the techniques and the hidden meanings behind the artwork was fascinating. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough and will definitely be bringing my friends and family along next time.

This has been running for a few years and I've always been interested in attending but hadn't got round to it until now.

Tim the tour guide took us round the Cathedral Quarrter, Kent Street and a variety of other spots around the city centre for just over two hours. Tim is a street artist himself who has been involved with the scene for many years and he was full of knowledge about the local and international artists who have visited Belfast in recent years.

The art we viewed and visited was superb and Tim was a great host. All of us in the group agreed that we'd love to do the tour again sometime.

This is a great way to get you out of your bed and slightly active on a Sunday, the two hours flew past between checking out the art and talking about the street art scene in Ireland.

Highly recommended.

Was a filthy Sunday, and in two minds if a walking tour was the wisest of decisions, but brolly in hand, we set off for a Belfast graffiti tour. Ray aka FGB, was our guide. We got to discover a world where walls are not to keep people apart, but to bring people and ideas together. Ray is a talker, but brought the history and symbolism and meanings behind the art to life. Would wholeheartedly recommend this walk; even if the weather is 'changeable'.

Very enjoyable morning which I would highly recommend. Tim is an excellent guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm really added to the experience. On the many occasions I have walked through Belfast I had never taken the time to look at the fabulous Art around me. I will certainly be more aware from now on.

Excellent tour! From start to finish there's plenty of information given about each piece of artwork and the artist - how it is made, meaning behind it, how long did it take... also a lot of beautiful little hidden gems seen that you wouldn't notice even if you have passed by many times before. 100% craic given by Tim and we could tell he really cares about showing what Belfast can be going forward as a beautiful, colorful destination of art and culture! Thank you!

Absolute must do if in Belfast!
Our tour guide was fantastic and was so passionate about street art. It was fascinating to hear the details behind each piece of artwork whether it's the meaning behind it, how they took inspiration from the location or the techniques they used to create it.

I feel embarrassed now to not have known about so many amazing pieces in Belfast and will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled wherever I go now! Highly recommend!

Absolutely fantastic experience with a great tour guide. I learned so much about the art and the city in general, and it took us down side streets and entries, showing us secret bits of art I normally would have missed. Even if you're from Belfast, this will make you see the city in a new way. I've been recommending it to everyone since!
