Belfast Compass Tours provides informative and entertaining walking tours...

Belfast Compass Tours provides informative and entertaining walking tours of Belfast.

There are two key walks: one of Belfast City Centre and the other of the historic North Belfast.

Each tour lasts 1.5 Hours, taking you back through 400 years of this famous city and some of the key events that have happened here, as well as providing good exercise (we recommend you bring waterproof clothing as unfortunately we can't guarantee the weather!)

Please contact Denis for prices, which we trust you will find highly competitive.

This tour exceeded my expectations! I was not sure what to expect but as luck would have it, I happened to accidentally get a positive recommendation an hour prior... so I was hopeful. Dennis was great! Belfast is truly amazing and he brings out all the beauty, history and architecture. I would do it again. I felt like we just... More

Denis gave me one of the best tours I had in the U.K. He is extraordinarily thorough in his explanation and detail of the history and culture of Belfast. I could not recommend him higher! The tour was about 2 hours (though, he is very receptive to questions, and he answered all of mine, which made the tour a little... More

I enjoyed the walking tour with Dennis. He was very knowledgable and cracked some good jokes along the way. I learnt a lot. He's a retired History teacher so he knows his business. Dennis showed me numbers us different buildings and sites around the city centre and told me stories to go along with it. Thanks Dennis :-)

This man is a very witty guide with a good sense of humour giving not only information about Belfast and the places visited, but also stories that you probably cannot find anywhere else. He illustrated events from the past using photos and pictures, he is very patient if you do not understand something or have a question. We really enjoyed... More

We cruised the British Isles and had a one day stop in Belfast. Most ship's excursions left town and toured countryside sites. We were more interested in learning about the history of the city and so we contacted Belfast Compass Tours as recommended by Rick Steves. Denis let us choose a time convenient for us and gave us his 1hr... More

Dennis provided a great overview of the history of Belfast. Tour lasted longer than the initial allotted time which meant that we got much more than our monies worth. Highly recommend doing a walking tour with Dennis

Had a great walking tour guide, Denis, who was excellent with our large bilingual group. He was very patient as we translated for our Italian family, spending 3 hours with us when it was to be a 1hour 45 min. tour. He was very informative & entertaining. Thanks Denis for a great morning in Belfast!. Ivano & co.

I called the number and Denis was there within 30 minutes to give a tour just for myself. It was full of information and entertaining as well. As a lifelong resident of Belfast, he has tremendous insight into the history. I would highly recommend giving him a call if you are looking for a tour of Belfast!

We were in Belfast for a one-day trip from Cairnryan, Scotland. Denis was really flexible, giving a tour to only the two of us at a time of our choice and at the lowest price that we have seen so far. He adjusted his speaking tempo to our language skills, nevertheless providing us with a whole lot of information, which... More

Walking with Denis is probably one of the most enjoyable experiences anyone can have in Belfast! Lively, knowledgeable and witty, Denis really makes the history of Belfast come alive, and you will look at all the sites you've been to with completely different eyes after you've been on the tour with him. Be prepared to walk through the city and... More
