Overview
Hear historic tales of The Troubles civil rights clash directly from a black taxi driver who lived through them on this 2-hour private driving tour of Belfast. There's nothing like learning historical information directly from the source. This tour allows you to experience Belfast's Falls Road and Shankill Road sites in an authentic way.
Highlights
  • Private tour with plenty of time to ask questions about a complicated subject
  • Visit the famous Belfast murals on Falls Road and Shankill Road
  • Hear about Belfast's history from someone who lived through it
  • Convenient hotel or port pickup and drop-off for a seamless experience
What to Expect
This tour of Belfast with a black taxi driver who lived through the civil rights clash of The Troubles allows you to learn loads more about the city's complicated history than you would traveling on your own. Sit back in rapt attention to your driver's narration, as you visit the famous Belfast murals on Falls Road and Shankill Road, painted by ex-prisoners on both sides of the conflict. Hear four versions of the city's history: the British version, the Republican version, the Loyalist version, and the truth according to someone who lived through it. Listening to your guide's narrative helps you make sense of a tangled history that is complicated and difficult to understand for visitors. You'll also see photos and videos depicting the neighborhoods visited on the tour as they were at that time.
