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.

Arthur was excellent. He was so funny. I really enjoyed those nearly 3 hours with him which have been full of interesting stuff about the city and history of Belfast. Moreover, this man can sing!!! "Hey hey fat boy..."

Thanks for the review Matthias. For groups particularly those whose English is not their first language, I bring the guitar along. It helps make the points more easily and of course it's fun!!!

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.
