We had John for the tour and we truly appreciated his honesty and the time he took to tell us about the real situation in the past and nowadays in Belfast. We would recommend this experience to anyone that wants to go further and to understand the history of the town and the context of people living there. It would have been a shame to miss such a moment! Irina

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

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!!

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.
