We met Arthur outside City Hall along with another family of 3 so a total of 5 persons on the tour. His knowledge was most impressive and he made the tour so interesting (and amusing too)! We went to places we would never have seen...More

The one hour tour is more of a standard sightseeing tour. It's still good fun and it still entertains and informs. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for your kind words. The 2.5 hour tour is not a standard sightseeing tour because often it's what you don't see in Belfast that is of real importance. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for the kind words and I'm really pleased that you both enjoyed the tour. The longer tour is aimed at adults but the shorter Hidden Belfast tour is ideal for this with children and lasts approximately 1.5 hours.

Very chatty and likeable guy who is full of all sorts of information and stories about the city of Belfast and imparts it in a humourous way. He pointed us to Maddens bar for live music where we enjoyed an impromptu concert.

Arthur was really good at conveying information about the history of Ireland , He was helpful, witty and a real treat to listen to. He obviously loves his country and he made an already first-class tour even more enjoyable.
