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.

This tour was really top-notch from start to finish. You start at City Hall where the stage is set via a brief history of how Northern Ireland came into existence. You then walk through the streets and get to not only see the places where major events happened but learn about the decisions that made those events happen. I really think this tour is worthwhile and the tour guide was excellent.

Thank you, Marty, for a thoroughly enjoyable eclectic walking tour of the Belfast city center. It was exactly what I wanted and I felt like I had a beginning grasp of the geography and history of the city after the tour!

I loved this tour! Steve was a great guide - really knowledgeable, interesting, and good at putting everything into context. Highly recommended.

Excellent, impartial and gripping. Highly recommended.
