My friend came to Belfast over Easter and I took him on Allen's Bus Tour of the City. The cost of the tour was reasonable, the comfort of the bus was okay, the areas covered on the tour were good. However, the commentary from the tour guide Lisa/Liza was cringe worthy!!! Her description on some of Belfast's landmarks were incorrect i.e. Clonard Monastry she said the locals call it something else - being a local I can confirm it is not known as anything other than Clonard Monastry.
Her description of what the 'locals' call the road strip to Belfast City Airport again is incorrect, i.e. more tar in a pack of cigarettes? - the locals do not refer to it as this description. There were many references Lisa said about what Locals refer to - being a local, it was new to me!!
Rather than Lisa 'trying hard' to make 'funny' comments about Belfast, it would be incredibly beneficial to tourists (given English may not be their first language) if she were to provide commentary with a level of intelligence and show a sense of pride in her city rather than try and poke fun at it!!
