It was an interesting fact filled walking excursion around Central Belfast which covered a tremendous amount of ground and was super informative. The pace of the walk was very brisk so be sure to be in good shape. The guide was very knowledgeable but seemed to get easily annoyed when asked to go over some of the information.

Just our group of six and Marty, so the group was ineffect a private group. The tour was fast paced in both the information and ground we covered, learnt and saw so much. A bit quirky at times but that has added to the memory. Marty is so dry I'm sure we missed all of his jokes. Its a great way to see the city , and the late afternoon/early evening start is just what we were after. Marty even managed to pursade a local church historian to give up some of his own time and give us a private talk on the church's history , a real treat.

We always like to do a walking tour when we arrive in a city as it’s good to get a general sense of where you are and learn something about the city you are in . Marty did an excellent job of showing us Belfast ‘The Marty way’ He explained some of the history and showed us places we would never have found on our own. It was a small group so we were able to chat and ask questions, take photos. An absolutely fascinating city. Thank you Marty for showing us around Belfast .
