We covered a lot of ground on this tour, seeing many murals. I feel we went into areas of the city that we would have missed on or own. Marty, as a native, had a very insightful interpretation of The Troubles and how times are changing for the better. Definitely have a new understanding about this period in Belfast’s history.

Brilliant Walking Tour

We had a brilliant walking tour with Marti. We experienced a wonderful mix of the more ‘traditIonal’ murals and the exciting new street art that is emerging around the city. Marti had a very easy way of sharing his knowledge of the ‘troubles’ and the many developments across the city. I have visited Belfast many times but I experienced the city in new ways through this walking tour.

The political street art tour was really cool! I didn’t know much about the Troubles before going on the tour, and our guide gave us a wonderful overview of Northern Ireland and Belfast and how the people are working to cultivate peace in their communities.
