“Best thing we did in Belfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Ourr first time in Belfast and this was the highlight of our weekend. Joe was a fantastic guide and really brought the troubled past of the city to life with detailed background information and old photos making it far more than just a taxi tour around the murals. Even though I am British and in my 40s, and so rememeber alot about the trouble from TV news etc, I still leant alot and got a real view of what it was like to actually live through it. Would therefore recommend to anyone, even if you think you already know all about it

Thanks again Joe

“Amazing Tour through the History of Belfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

I had John and he was amazing. I would recommend this tour to anyone thats wants to understand the histroy of Belfast. You get to see the murals but more importantly a local guide who can try put everything into context so you can understand that struggle that occurred and is still occurring today!!

“Great guide, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Really fantastic tour - our tour guide, Joe, was warm and friendly in addition to being knowledgable and organized. The trip was well-structured, and we felt like we learned a lot in a short amount of time. Joe did a really great job of conveying the heavy emotions of the Troubles without being overdramatic or taking sides, and it was really powerful to see the murals, walls, and gates. We only booked an hour and a half tour, but left wishing we'd booked a longer one as it was so interesting and engaging.

“Excellent tour - highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I booked this tour with three friends in order to view the murals in west belfast and hopefully learn about the history of the area. Joe was extremely interesting and very well informed - he provided a comprehensive and engaging explanation of each mural as well as a detailed overview of the history of the area. The tour was reasonably priced - he could warily charge double for the wonderful information he shared with us. Joe was really friendly and I'm sure he'd be as popular with children as he was with adults.
