Bobby was prompt & very knowledgeable. We learned about the meaning of the flag colors, the wall, gates shut from 7pm to 7am, July bonfires, hunger strikes, etc. We were astonished by the murals, able to write a message on the peace wall, & how Catholics were treated. This was a great lesson in history. Regardless what part of the tour we were in we always felt safe. We highly recommend taking this tour. The history we learn ed is very memorable.

My sister and I were only going to be in town overnight & booked this tour for the morning at 11pm the night beforehand. Gerry was timely, kind-hearted, humble, and humorous. He began the tour by making sure we knew what kind of a tour it was and when I replied “yes, it’s of the street art” he said “well, yes, and so much more.” And then I said “oh, of course, it’s about The Troubles!” Gerry was an amazing wealth of knowledge of the historical and current political climate. Even with just an overnight stay, my sister & I both felt not only that we’d seen Belfast, but become acquainted with Northern Ireland.

I can wholeheartedly recommend CabtoursNI for a "political tour". Our driver, Gerry, was both knowledgeable and funny, and was able to see the conflict from both sides. He took us to all the interesting places, including Stormont, Shankill Rd and Falls Rd. If you ever visit Belfast, do not miss this facinating experience. It was worth every penny.

Took my dad and brother on Belfast Black Cab Mural tour, it was absolutely fantastic. The guide, Bobby, made the whole tour. His knowledge was incredible and he explained all the areas and stages of the troubles with the right balance of seriousness and craic. Highly recommended

Took the tour with some friends on Saturday morning and really enjoyed it. Cecil was a fantastic guide, really knowledgeable and was able to share some of his personal experiences during the troubles.

Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Belfast on a mini - break. It is a must see,

From a comfort point of view I would give this tour 5 stars. Cecil's cab was immaculate, his driving was superb and he even dropped us off at our next destination at our convenience.

Will definitely do this again if I am ever back in Belfast.
