Having not lived through the time of 'The Troubles', this was a fantastic 2-hour crash course in the history by someone who lived through it. The wonderful thing about this company is the tours are conducted by both Republican and Loyalist guides so it's very...More

I had no idea that there was still so much separation between catholic & Protestant communities until I did this tour. The peace walls are terrible to see. Wonderful informative tour with Brian.

I would highly recommend taking this tour. It is only 1.5 hours and they will pick you up anywhere in the city and bring you back. Our tour guide/driver Sean was very well versed in the history of Ireland and the content of the murals....More

No...UNFORTUNATELY! We had to pay cash and we expected to use a card. It took every cent we could dig up to pay him in full. (ugh) FYI - note all taxis in Ireland or N. Ireland take cc. We would have left 10 on a 45 L ride.

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.

Yup why not..! My trip started at 3:30 and finished by 5:00 pm. However, prebooking will help even more though there are plenty of cars there to meet any suddenly increased demands.!
