Overview

Experience Belfast provides you with the best overview of Belfast you will find. Originally a walking tour which could best be described as street theatre, it's a theatrical experience available as a Day Tour, Walking Tour or Coach Tour. We provide brilliant tours for individuals and groups and we also arrange workshops with writers, politicians and journalists. We consistently receive excellent reviews on Trip Advisor for a reason, this is one of the best tours you'll ever do. If you want something that's informed, intelligent, good fun and craic, we're right up your street.

Thank you for the great review. I love my City but it would be wrong to overlook the issues here because they relate to much of what is happening in the world now. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. The day tour is a great option for those who may only be in Belfast for a day or so. I've put the effort into sourcing the best so you don't have to!

Response from Arthur M | Property representative |
Hi Maria - yup there's a fee of £15. Why? Because I wasn't getting enough people to make a 'tip based' tour sustainable. I don't run scheduled tours so I'd need at least 2 or 3 people on a tour.
