  • Bypass the crowds and explore Belfast on a private taxi tour
  • Choose from a variety of daily time slots to suit your schedule

    First person telling of civil conflict
    Nancy_C, Jan 2023
    I came to the tour not knowing much about the civil conflict. Hearing Stevie tell the history from the local perspective was eye opening.
    Powerful tour -- a must in Belfast
    Kevin_K, Nov 2022
    Rarely has a tour flown by so quickly. An hour and a half felt as if we barely scratched the surface hearing about the Troubles in Belfast. Our guide was engaging and it really felt like a good opportunity to talk to a local about a sensitive subject matter. We saw and learned a ton in a short amount of time. Would recommend!

    Guide had very strong accent!
    Debra_B, Jul 2022
    While I cannot say that this tour was a total "bust", I feel like I walked away learning a fraction of what I had hoped. The largest problem was the strong accent of the guide. I heard maybe 25% of what he said. One person in our party of 5 was able to hear him and add some interpretations. It was a lot of money to walk away unhappy. The tour was to last 1-1.5 hours but it was two hours. That might have been welcome had we been entertained. The guide was very nice and he was kind enough to drive us back to the cruise port. I have no complaints about him in general. He was just not able to convey his message effectively to us. Very disappointing.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    We are very sorry to hear that, but your driver has over 400 5star reviews. I spoke with the driver and he informed me that no one had told him that they couldn't understand him.
    Great Experience
    Christy_M, Jul 2022
    Fantastic afternoon! Michael told me so much history of the troubles and made many stops to get out and have a look and take some photos. Never felt rushed and Michael seemed relaxed and enjoying himself as well. So glad I did this tour. Highly recommend! Thank you!

    Interesting and informative-should not be missed
    Jo_S, Jul 2022
    The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions. The tour was very informative and it made all the stories I have heard and read, come to life. The guide was also very polite and as a solo “tourist”, I felt safe. Can’t wait to return to Ireland and do other black taxi tours.

    Worth every bit to see and hear these perspectives

    Enlightening to learn about Belfast and recent Ireland history. Amazed (shocked really) to learn and see walls dividing neighborhoods to this day.

    Fab tour with freedom to wonder by self
    Azhar_C, May 2022
    It was a solo tour and Kieron provided a really interesting tour covering both sides. He stopped at many locations to provide good background insights and also gave me time to walk around by myself to read and take pictures. Therefore, I felt well supported but also had free time to wonder around also.

    You are scalpers.
    John_M, May 2022
    I found in speaking with the Belfast Visitors Centre that you were going to charge me 6 (that’s six) times the going rate for this tour! We were astounded. We did not take the tour but I have been charged anyway on my Amex card. I intend to stop payment.
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Hi John we are a partner with Belfast visitors centre there is lots of compliments that do tours in Belfast but there is only 3 of us that are partners with the belfast visitors center so I find it hard to believe that our partner would tell you that we were going to charge you 6 times the price of the tour can you please get in contact with me I don't think it is fair that you leave a bad review when you did not book a tour with us and that you are saying that our partners told you not to book with us this is the Belfast visitors page and this is our link on there page I don't think they would have us as partners if they thought we were ripping people of https://visitbelfast.com/?s=Cab+tours+belfast
