“The best tour in Northern Ireland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

I can't recommend strongly enough a taxi tour of the Shankill/Falls Road. Even having studied the Troubles at university, I was amazed at how much there is to know, and from someone with intimate, first-hand knowledge. I could have listened to our guide, Gerard, for hours on end as he shared photos, personal anecdotes and allowed ample time to wander among murals in both areas to take pictures--he provided a wealth of information about each mural and many other points of interest along the route. Perhaps the highlight was passing from one section into the other via the peace wall, but not before first having my photo taken signing the peace wall! I doubt that you could find a tour of this area that could compete in terms of depth and quality! Will book another tour with this company next time I'm in Belfast!

“Betty's one day trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

A wonderful trip with a very nice weather and a fantastic tour guide/driver: Gerald!!!!
the trip started from 930 in the morning with a white cab. Gerald made a brief explanation about our trip before we started. He made a lot of surprise for us, but i soiled some of it ( as this is my second time in Belfast). fantastic time and route arrangement. Gerald is a knowledgable and extremely nice gentleman and daddy! (He bought us ice-creams in the middle of day and bought a lovely doll for his daughter)......
i dont want to talk too much about the trip, because I want to leave chances for Gerald to make surprise for you! There is one more thing I wanna say 'This is a must go trip!' and definately worth it!

“In the know with people who lived through it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

This tour is for tourist who know nothing about The Troubles to the well read.Peter our first class guide had us through side streets and showed keysite sites during the conflict on both sides.The murals have to remain so the new genaration can learn by thier parents mistakes.The Falls and Shankill are the hearts of bothh republican and loyalist factions and working class people.
