My wife and I found the experience expensive and were disappointed with the slightly late arrival of the driver. Nevertheless we were captivated by his passionate story and commitment to showing us the territory covered during Belfast’s troubled history including the present, taking more than one hour in the end

We didn't want to commit to a 3 hour tour so this one hour option was just perfect for us. Michael was awesome, personable, fun, and filled the hour and 15 minutes just perfectly. He's a good listener so can quickly pick up what you're looking for. He gave us a very enjoyable experience and we highly recommend.

Very impartial, well rounded & educational tour provided by our driver JoJo. Provides a first hand experience with plenty of opportunities for debate and questions. Stopped off at as many sites as possible along the way with a highlight being the poignant peace wall that sadly divides this great city.
