No matter how beautiful Belfast wall graffitis are there's a dark history behind it. We got the chance to hear everything about it in this two hours Black taxi tour. Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable.

We paid 35GBP for 2 of us; it's 15GBP after that for up to 4. I think there's more than 1 taxi company that gives the tours. Whichever you use, this was one of the biggest highlights of our 2-1/2 week trip.
