About
Experience the history of Belfast from a primary source. Learn from someone who has lived through the troubled past and worked the streets of the City. The tour will be given from an unbiased point of view, exploring both sections of the political divide. Explaining and exploring the past, each area has became famous for wall art known today as the famous Murals. They say a picture expresses a thousand words, both sides have expressed the past and also where they wish the future to head to for the next generations. Sign the same wall supporting peace as Bill Clinton and thousands of others before you. Discover this and much more on a impactful historical tour.

We couldn't rate the taxi tour high enough. Our driver was excellent and so knowledgeable, he did a great job explaining all aspects of the troubles. The best city tour we have ever done.
We also left a mobile phone in the back of the cab and the customer service was brilliant, they went above and beyond getting it back to us.

Michael our tour guide was one of the best guides we’ve ever had.
His neutral view on what was a sensitive issue made the tour hugely informative.
My knowledge of the ‘troubles’ was okay before hand but now I feel I could write a paper on them.
Great to see and hear that the country is moving forwards in a positive direction.
Would fully recommend City Tours Belfast to anyone visiting Northern Ireland.

Hello, Thank you for your review of the Black Cab Tour. Michael has a first hand account of what happened during the troubles, having lived and working through it. He offers a primary deep insight into each side of the coin and gives a great neutral viewpoint so each and everyone can make an independent decision on each sides viewpoints. It is truly great tho how much Belfast has changed since the dark days. I will be sure to pass over your kind words to Michael, i know he will be thrilled by them. We hope to see you again on one of the many other tours we run daily from Belfast.. The best deals can always be found on the main website. Easy to find on Google "City Tours Belfast Dot Com" Thanks

The tour really hits home about what has became known as the troubles and takes you between the peace lines on a historical tour of discovery. I am thrilled the driver delivered a 5 Star Experience. I will be sure to let him know of your kind words, i hope to see you again on one of the many other tours we run daily from Belfast.

We bought these tickets through groupon prior to travelling to belfast for the weekend. I wish we had waited and paid more for a reliable service. We used our tickets last Saturday and sunday and to be quite honest it was a shambles. They made the route up as they went along. On sunday morning we got the 1030 bus from stop one to titanic and then headed up to the castle. It was a lovely day so we hoped to get off and back in the next bus home however after we visited titanic and then returned to stop one and waited another 15mins (we were already 15mins late in leaving from 1030) when we arrived at the castle our tour guide informed us that this bus was the last one therefore we were unable to get another one.
We later attempted to get the bus to queens university however we were told that buses were running every hour rather than the poor 45mins the day before. Again, when we attempted to see stormont on sunday at 2.30pm we were told there were no more buses going to that area that day. They literally chopped and changed the routes and times of the buses to suit themselves. Like someone else has mentioned. I have emailed the company last sunday however no response despite them saying a 3-5 day response.
My only advice is do not use the company. It is not worth it, this could have spoiled our weekend but we tried not to. We will return but will not return to use this company and would advise you not to either. I welcome response from this company to see if we can agree a suitable outcome for the disappointing service and non access to services.

Thanks.

Hello, You have not travelled with us and you have not only left your review on the wrong listing but also the wrong tour type. Feel free to private message us so we can investigate - show proof of purchase. We have trackers on all the buses and they get checked daily to see if all the buses run on time and stay on the correct route, they all have been ahead of schedule and well on the red route advertised timetable. No matter how good a tour is i suppose you can never make everyone happy, but overall we have a 90+ percent above and beyond satisfaction rate. Good Day.

Hello, Thank you for such a great review, we really appreciate the feedback. The tour touches all the bases on what happened during the time known as "the troubles" and gives a deep insight into both sides of the conflict. I am thrilled you got above and beyond what you expected. I will be sure to pass over your kind words to both Sean + Paddy. I know Patrick has not guided in a while and will be thrilled to hear of the 5 Star review. We hope on your return you will travel with us again on one of the many other tours we run daily from Belfast.

Extremely interesting. I would definitely recommend you do it. The driver was friendly and informative. I can't say the driver was neutral, it didn't spoil it, but it did leave me curious about a number of things. I would have loved to have heard the other side of the story.

Great tour, our guide Jackie was nice, funny and interesting and we had a great time. He had a genuine interest in everything he talked about and even stayed a little longer past our slot to have a chat as he saw I was also interested.
