          Excellent Full Day Tour to Giant Causeway & Tour of the Murals
          Excellent full day tour with Michael visiting the Giant Causeway, Dark Hedges and then back to the city for a mural tour. All communication before & during the tour was excellent. Michael give very insightful information and was also very good company and had a good sense of humour so made it a very pleasant day out. Car was comfortable and spotless.

          100% Best Tour of Belfast.
          We took the Belfast troubles history Taxi tour with BELFAST.TOURS and Tony was our tour guide. All I can say is this man is a legend what a nice fella and the knowledge he has of the troubles and history of Belfast is amazing. He really explained all his knowledge in great detail and took us to all the main areas of the troubles in Belfast. It was the best tour I was ever on all down to Tony. His minibus is very spacious and comfortable so 100% ask for Tony when booking with this company. I really felt the pain everyone went through the time of the troubles the way Tony explained and expressed his knowledge. 100% book with Tony. We will be back again.

          Absolutely awesome tour.
          Absolutely amazing. Tony our driver was extremely knowledgeable and brought to life the troubled history of Northern Ireland and how it has changed for the better over time. We had the opportunity to step out of the taxi and take photos of numerous murals, each of which had its own story. Cant recommend this company enough.

          A whistle stop tour of interesting sights with a great guide!
          We had Jackie as our tour guide and his service, professionalism and knowledge were incredible! The pickup was really convenient outside the hotel and we got a quick history of NI before getting a tour around some really interesting sights getting bursts of history as we went! We could ask anything we wanted and Jackie would have the answer with an interesting story. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of NI and Irish history.

          Great political Troubles Tour with Micael
          Just completed a Troubles/Political Tour with Michael. We learned so much in an unbiased manner. Michael was knowledgeable, respectful in his presentation and fun to hand out with. Best to buy tour thru local company instead of a consolidator. Great tour!

        We took a tour last week. Our guide was Jimmy, who I can only highly recommend. We were taken up the falls road and stopped at the murals. Jimmy, being a local man from just around the corner, was very insightful and through growing up there, was passionate about his city's history. We also went to the Shankill road to see the protestant side and wrote some words of hope on the peace wall. Overall a must do in Belfast.

        Many thanks

        Jimmy was incredibly knowledgable, a fantastic story teller and gave references from his own life experiences which were very humbling. Would definitely recommend as this was our favourite excursion to do in Belfast. ‘His part’ of the wall goes to show just how much every else enjoyed his tour and felt comfortable in what could easily be an uncomfortable situation

        I took this tour solo (only pitfall when traveling alone is that there is a minimum charge of 2 people...which all of the taxi tours had). Jackie was my driver. Having your tour guide grow up in the areas they are showing and telling you about make it all the more interesting and engrossing. Jackie knew his Belfast/Ireland history and was so friendly (I found this to be true of everyone I met from Ireland). It was fun to see Jackie interacting with other locals when we made stops or while driving, as he greeted or had a few words with them. This is a must do if you are in Belfast and I highly recommend taking this specific tour company. Couldn't have asked for a better guide or tour. Thanks, Jackie, for a great time while I visited Belfast.

        Michael was a phenomenal tour guide! Right from the get go he was informative and funny. We were having a great time before we even got in the taxi. At each stop he gave us a summary of each mural and the history behind it — we even got to discuss facts from other historical sites around Belfast. We highly recommend requesting Michael as your guide. It was like taking a ride with a great friend!

        Jimmy was an excellent tour guide, very informative and his knowledge about Belfast really opened our eyes, we even got to speak Irish to him which really made the tour even more special. Jimmy welcomed us into his hometown with open arms and to listen to how it affected him and his family was was amazing to hear and how he fits so much information in to such a short period of time. Would highly recommend Jimmy as a tour guide, one of the best tours we have had to date with the history around and would come back again. 10/10.

        I was on the fence about this tour---did not know if we needed it or could learn some of the history on our own. However, after 5 or more locals recommended it to us, we felt we had to do it. We are really happy we did. It was difficult choosing a company since there are so many out there, and happened on this one due to the good reviews. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. It is 1 hour long, drive along the historical parts of Belfast and go over the murals ( you get out at the stops for a bit). We learned so much about the fraught history of Belfast. It was touching to see how much everyone has been through and yet how lovely everyone in this city is. Tony was our guide, and he did an incredible job. He even gave his personal history and hearing everything he has been through was incredibly touching. Honestly I cannot recommend enough.

        We booked the tour with a bit of trepidation as we didn't want to see it as "entertainment" and be "voyeurs" into the complex situation that still exists in Belfast and Northern Ireland. However our guide and driver Jimmy put that to rest very quickly. He completely understood our point of view and for the next hour or so (a 1 hour tour but not rushed at all) had us mesmerised with his history of the troubles in NI and Belfast. Jimmy's knowledge of events, dates, names and numbers was excellent. He weaved this together with a real ability to tell a story so that we hung on his every word. What impressed me above all is that despite him being from one side of the community of the city, he gave what we thought was a very balanced account of the troubles, the events stretching back well over 100 years that led to them and the situation there today. Having lived through the troubles himself and experiencing some of its horrors gave the tour an emotional and real authenticity.
        If you ever visit Belfast you have to do one of these tours. We are so glad we did!
        Thanks Jimmy!
