Full description
On this customized tour of Belfast, you’ll skip the mundane historical tours and discover the city through a local’s eyes. Experience a tour that will transform the way you travel to make it as much about the people you meet, as the places you see. The local guides (Lokafyers) are passionate about their city and eager to share their knowledge and perspective. Since Lokafyers are not professional guides and tour occasionally, they provide an experience that’s authentic and personal, like a friend showing you around their city. Meet where you're staying to get familiar with the neighborhood, find out about the best places to eat, the easiest ways to get around, and the hidden gems you might have missed. By the end of the tour, you'll feel comfortable navigating the city and confident you have all the information you need to make the most of your stay. Through conversations with your Lokafyer, you’ll learn about cultural differences, local events, and what it’s like to be a true local. The more notice you provide, the better, as these tours are organized on demand and are completely personalized. With this experience, you won’t just be passing through the city, you’ll be part of it.

It has been a pleasure to get to know Belfast with Judith. He has taught us many things, he wrote to us in advance to prepare the route according to our preferences. Very professional, he knows the history of Belfast very well and above all he is a very nice person. 100% recommended

Great tour with an indescribable tour guide. Insights into the history and today's life from the point of view of a resident - with the peculiarity of the point of view of a German in Belfast. I've already seen many guided tours in my life, but the tour with Melanie was by far the best we've ever seen. Melanie's descriptions, which went far beyond what I knew, moved me to buy the grandiose but also harrowing book "Return to Killybegs". Many passages made me remember this fantastic tour. Recommendation: take your time - every hour is worth it!

Great insight into the history of Belfast

Barry showed us his city. And not just on foot the city center, but drove us through Belfast in his private car. To Belfast Castle and the seat of government. Also to the memorial for the innocent victims of the partly still subliminal conflicts. Impressive stories and great insights into his city. In the end we went to the beautiful bar The Crown. A great day with a super nice guide. We recommend.
