Overview
Every city has it’s shopping and coffee culture but Belfast city has a unique past after coming out of 30 years of conflict.Your guides are the original  drivers who had to transport their communities through the bullets and bombs of THE TROUBLES and have their lives at risk every time they seat in their black cabs. The North of Ireland has become famous for the murals painted in almost every area of the country . These pictures of IRA ,UVF murals are often flashed around the world on news bulletins or used as a backdrop when interviewing people. They often depict the history and political views of both traditions and are a way of marking territory. These wall paintings often look intimidating but they have become as much of a tourist attraction as many of the regular attractions within Belfast and beyond.

Wouldn't have missed this for the world, and just a short drive from the centre of Belfast we felt ourselves in a different world, where history hung over the streets either side of the peace wall like a heavy cloud. Our guide was extremely informative and gave us a sense of

This was a really informative tour. You can read about the Troubles and watch news items but the tour gives a new perspective, at times sobering, horrific, and uplifting. Our guide was JR who presented information very clearly and adjusted the way we did the tour to make

We had a fantastic time. It was very enjoyable, very informative and interesting. Gerry was a lovely tour guide he was both friendly and informative. This tour is not in slightest bit boring it’s quite the opposite! I would recommend for all ages.

We had JR as our tour guide who was friendly, dunny and welcoming. He took us around Shankill and the Falls area, sparing no detail in the troubled history. Well worth the money, would advise anyone to go!
