“Very well done tour”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

My boyfriend and I went on a Black Taxi Tour with Bobby Walsh last week. It was an excellent tour. Bobby was very informative and tells it like it is, we had lots of time to take pictures and ask questions. I would highly recommend this company to anyone going to Belfast!

“Bobby rocks!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Bobby's black taxi tour was probably the best "tourist" tour guide we ever had. He provided excellent insights of the conflict which we didn't know much about. After more than 2 hours of an incredible history, still alive today, he recommended a place for lunch which ended up being one of our best meals during our 6 days trip in Northern Ireland.

“Outstanding Black-Taxi-Tour in Belfast”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Although being the one and only sitting in a modern version of black taxis (because of a necessary repair of the actual cab) in Belfast we really enjoyed the Black-Taxi-Tour in Belfast guided by Bobby Walsh. It was intended as a one hour trip through the protestant and catholic districts of the capital of Northern Ireland but we ended up with a very interesting and exciting tour of almost 2 hours highly entertained by Bobby. He told us exhausively about the conflict its history and the current situation 40 years after the establishement of the so called "peace line"-wall. He also thrillingly spoke about his own experiences during his life as a cab driver.

THE TOUR WITH BOBBY IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

“best tour ever!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

this tour gives you the best insight into the cities past and present and a feeling for the people living in it! all the drivers are extremely knowledgeable, real belfast characters and very funny guys. they take you on a 1,5 - 2 hour tour to westbelfast. they show you around the catholic and the protestant side of the peacewall, tell you all about the conflict, when and how it started, when and why the peacewall was built. you get out of the car to see the memorials and famous murals and you have plenty of time to ask questions and take pictures. if you only do one thing in belfast definitely chose this tour!

“Great and informative tour”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

My wife and I took the tour with Paddy in March 2013 and it was very educational for us. He thoughtfully explained the history of the troubles and provided excellent context for us as we drove around looking at the neighborhoods, murals and secured gates and fences of Belfast. I had some reservations about taking these black taxi tours thinking it might be a bit sensationalist and exploitative but the focus was on the educating tourists on the history of the troubles and showing the advances that have been made that show great hope for the future of Belfast.

This was also my first visit to Belfast and the people were friendly and great fun even by Ireland standards.
