“Best tour in Belfast”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

A friend and I took a black taxi tour during our one night stay in Belfast. We knew very little of 'The Troubles' that took place for so many years in this area. Paddy was our taxi driver and so knowledgable on the events. He had an excellent way of telling the stories and facts and never rushed the tour. I couldn't have been happier with the tour and our driver who really made our experience what it was, which was unforgettable. Thanks again Paddy!

“excellent tour and history of "the troubles"”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

While in belfast we had heard advice to tax a black cab tour of teh sectarian area of the city that had been at teh center of the violence. after looking at the reviews of several companies I called cabtoursni first thing in the morning to see if i could get a tour at 10:30 the same day. Bobby said it would be no problem.

He met us at our hotel exactly at 10:30 and off we went. While it was easy to tell which side (protestant or catholic) he was on the tour was very neutral. he took us through both catholic and protestant areas,showed us some of the famous murals, gave us an overview of the history of the troubles,explained the peace walls and left us with a better understanding of the underlying causes of the violence. The cost for teh two of us was £30 for a 90 minute tour. Well worth it. If your in belfast you must take a black cab tour.

“Great tour for the family”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

I was in Belfast just for a day with 2 teenagers and a pre-teen so they could learn a little about the history of the area and the Troubles. This tour was fantastic! The kids loved it and learned so much in a way that really engaged them. I enjoyed it too, and also learned a lot. Bobby adapted it a bit to be more interesting for the kids, which I really appreciated. Highly recommend!

“Wedding day”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

To Bobby and his team many thanks for making our son & daughter in laws wedding go so perfect and smoothly by providing the taxis. 1 white & 2 black for the bridal party as part of their theme of everything good in Belfast. The taxis were kitted on in ribbons ready to leave from Europa hotel to Lady Dixon park and return and drew plenty of looks from on lookers, again many thanks.
