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.

Black Cab Tour is a must do!
Aug 2021
We did a political tour with our driver Sean Mc. It was absolutely stunning! Our driver Sean Mc told us loads of very interesting facts about the Troubles and the areas we drove through. At every spot were we stopped and got out of the cab he told us a lot about the sites and answered all of our questions. But it was not like "just telling some facts out of the history books" but more like different perspectives and a lot of knowledge from a local person who experienced the times back then.
Even though I thought my knowledge about the Troubles was not too bad I was absolutely impressed by the tour!
Definitely a must do when in Belfast.

Hi We delighted you enjoyed our award winning tour with the original drivers who lived and worked during the conflict. Our drivers come from Republican and loyalist working class communities and tell 800 years or Irish/British. Thank you Tierna

I had the tour on 14th July with Jim, who picke me at the Clayton Hotel. I would highly recommend him! He is knowledgeable, fun and flexible. I will be asking for him when I return to Belfast later in the year for a longer tour. Jim, sorry for delay in posting this! I was in Donegal and Sligo after Belfast and neither of my rentals had wifi! Looking forward to meeting with you again and thanks for the amazing insights you gave me. Those walls are scary and should make all of us, especially those from the Republic, reflect on the fragility of 'peace'. Moira Leydon, Meath

Must do tour when visiting Belfast!
Aug 2021
We are visiting from Canada and was told the black cab tour was a must do. It did not disappoint! Davy was an amazing driver...he was very informative, friendly and went above and beyond. We were not knowledgeable about the troubles in Belfast but Davy was more than happy to answer all of our questions. This tour was definitely a highlight of our time in Belfast and our favourite tour in Northern Ireland. I would recommend anyone visiting to take this tour to learn the history of this beautiful city and their people.

Jul 2021 • Friends
Myself and 4 friends did this trip at the beginning of July and had the pleasure of having Sean Mc as our guide. Sean Mc really had great knowledge of the history and being a local man all his life he gave us a great insight into life growing up in Belfast. It was fascinating to hear his stories. The trip was 2 hours long but could have listened to Sean Mc all day and he had a great sense of humour as well. Highly recommend this if you're going to Belfast
