    The taxi tour was an educating and fulfilling experience. The murals were brought to life with their back stories and I was educated about The Troubles more in the 90 minute tour than years of history lessons. My guide was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Felt very comfortable and he was very neutral in his opinion. He filled in a lot of gaps about the troubles and cleared up some untruths. I was shocked by some events that are never in the press either.

    Jim was really knowledgeable and gave an unbiased view of both sides of the story. He was happy to answer any question and I feel we now have a much greater understanding of the troubles. He would sometimes not directly answer a question, but instead provide information to allow you to make your own mind up. He made us think more deeply about the issues facing these communities in years gone by, but also now In current times. At times, really moving and my husband and I have discussed many of the issues raised since the tour.

    Great first hand history tour of a horrible part of the recent history of Northern Ireland. The wounds of community are still healing and it’s palpable during this tour of the region. It was a war zone and thankfully there is peace now for the people of Belfast. If you have any curiosity of the history of the troubles you will enjoy this tremendously. Take the longer tour it’s worth a few extra euros.
