Our Tour of Belfast, booked at short notice, was the high point to our visit to Belfast. Our Guide, Jim, gave a very fair, unbiased, insight into the political situation in Belfast. The tour took in both communities. Every visitor to the city should take the tour.

I am sorry to report that we were deeply disturbed by our TaxiTrax experience. At the beginning of our tour, our driver acknowledged that he was Catholic and then proceeded to take us on a 90 minute tour of the murals depicting the sad events relating to the Belfast Catholics. There was never any mention of how the troubles affected all persons; only the Catholics were described by our driver as victims. It was indeed sad to see that in spite of all the time and effort to bring about peace and understanding amongst all people that our driver was still enslaved by his own anger and resentment. It is my sincere hope that he will someday find a place where he can heal and become a more enlightened guide for those who are seeking a better understanding of the troubling times of Belfast.

Thank you for your candid review.

I am not doubting your integrity but I find this story most difficult to believe. What did your driver talk about on the Shankill Road leg of the tour? Surely he couldn't have been talking about Catholics whilst looking at the Protestant / Unionist murals?

Could you please provide us with some examples of what was said and provide us with the name of the driver if you can remember.

This is most disturbing news to us and the matter will be investigated fully.

If you are ever in Belfast again, we would like to offer you a free taxi tour. I am quite sure you will be most satisfied next time around. Hopefully you can see that the majority of reviewers give us 5 stars so we know we are good at what we do. I can only apologise for the one that appeared to get through the net.

Many thanks

Well worth the money the driver was very knowledgable and explained different things and answered our questions and was very helpful . Although I didn't do the bus tour I would recommend this over it because of the personnel touch and the enthusiasm of the driver on the tour.
