Full description
Belfast is a city best explored with those who have lived through its ups and downs and can share with you its wonderful secrets. An excellent and informative guide will take you deep into the underbelly of the streets of Belfast with an exciting ride in a taxi.  The tour begins at the corner of Falls and Shankill Road, where you start in the epicenter of the conflict between the Roman Catholic population and its Protestant brethren. Drive past the "Peaceline wall" which divides the two sides of the communities, as your guide painstakingly points out the meanings of the murals and art that you'll see painted onto the side of these walls. Belfast may be known for its troubles, but your guide is here to share with you all the things that make this city something truly unique - its people and its history! The tour will cater exactly to your needs and answer any questions you have about the place, whether its about the conflicts, or just a great restaurant to try out! Guides are real taxi drivers, so trust them, they know about this city!

    Very interesting and informative tour. We learnt a lot about the history of N. Ireland, especially during the troubles, and how Belfast has developed through to current times. I am sure the guides vary enormously and indeed ours was extremely knowledgeable. However, I felt he was a little aggressive and defensive, with his partisanship clearly visible.

    Des is the best! Even met Lord Mayor of Belfast!

    While viewing the walls the Lord Mayor of Belfast arrived just in time to greet us & unveil a new wall mural. He put the Chain of Office on my husband & we had a grand photo session. Des’s Stories & explanation of Belfast divisions and history were the highlight of our trip. He’s the best. Be sure to request him!

    We learned from an expert

    This tour was fascinating. To hear about " the troubles," from one with first-hand knowledge and experience was truly an enlightening time. I am glad that never had such a tragic experience in real life, but I am equally happy that I learned about it in the manner we did! Bravo, Red!
