Það sem verður gert

We meet outside the front gates of Belfast City Hall. During introductions, you will receive your audio headset. We start by going into the City Hall grounds. Afterwards, we move into the City Centre passing the sites of security cordons and bomb blasts. We travel past some wonderful modern art, winding our way through some of Belfast's famous Entries, historical sights of revolution and intrigue. We move towards the scenic River Lagan which provides great photo opportunities before walking back, towards the Big Fish which you can kiss if you like! Turning back towards the City Centre, we pass the magnificent Custom House and the Leaning Tower of Belfast - The Albert Clock. We move into the vibrant Cathedral Quarter, home to some wonderful mural art and the centre of Belfast's Music, Theatre and Arts scene. Winding through another Entry we pass the locations of incredible historical significance, finishing with a visit to a historic church that sits at the centre of Irish history. The Church is within sight of the City Hall. There's plenty to see on this tour but in Belfast, often it's not what you see, it's what you don't see that tells the real story. We provide a full detailed explanation of what is hidden in plain sight or lies just below the surface and we do so in a fun and entertaining way. The tour is not suitable for children 12 years and younger.

We're three Belfast natives, Arthur, Sean & Steve, born and raised in Belfast and we love it - we've even written a book, "The Little Book of Belfast". We're qualified guides with degrees in Law and English. More importantly we've life experiences, being endorsed by a President, playing in rock groups (produced by Martin Hannett (Joy Division, U2)), treading the boards and designing jewellery. Our interest in people is our most important qualification as is our sense of humour. We all share a common humanity on our journey through life and our tours are told from this perspective. We deliver an experience that explains the 'troubles' in great detail but also looks forward and places Belfast within the context of fast changing, post industrial world.

We had an amazing tour with Steve who also very kindly arranged for us to do it at an individualized time. Steve has an unbelievable encyclopedic knowledge of Belfast. Most importantly he managed to explain Belfast’s complicated and colorful history in a way that was respectful and considerate to all its citizens past and present. Thanks again Arthur!

We had an excellent morning with Steve, who is an amazing storyteller. The tour was informative and well-balanced with history, culture, politics and fun facts. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Belfast!

Steve was the guide for our tour. Before we started he asked us about any special interests that we had so that he could integrate them into our experience. We were interested in the social history of Belfast and not just The Troubles. Steve to share his in-depth knowledge of both topics as we visited various locations in the city centre. We had a really enjoyable tour thank to Steve. The only downside was the Belfast weather > Sun, cloud, wind and rain > all within a couple of hours!

A great introduction to Belfast that went well beyond a description of the Troubles. We came away with a sense of history but also of the perspective of a local who had seen the worst and best of human nature in his native city. Highly recommend!

Fleiri ábendingar

We cover approximately 2.5 miles at a gentle pace. The weather in Belfast is temperate so dress accordingly but we're on the coast and it can rain so come prepared. We provide Listening Sets so I'd advise being at the Meeting Point 5 to 10 minutes early.
