Just sit back and enjoy the view while your experienced guide tells you stories of old and interesting tales. They will tell you all about Northern Ireland and its history. Each of our guides are unique and will add their own knowledge of the area and make your tour one to remember.
Visit Peace Wall and murals of West Belfast, acting as stark reminders of the times of political turmoil, now coined ‘the Troubles’. After free time to explore Belfast city centre, jump aboard the Political taxi tour. You will also visit the highlight of the tour, the Titanic Experience Tour.
Tour will start from the designated meeting point at the mentioned time. You will then head directly for Belfast city. Your guide will take you first around West Belfast, the home of the famous ( or infamous ) Peace Wall. Then you will drive around West Belfast, which is comprised of 'Loyalists' (allegiance to the Queen) on one side and Republicans(those who want a united Ireland) on the other. Your guide will show you the dividing wall called 'The Peace Wall' - a wall forcing peace by separation. Next head towards Titanic Belfast monument to Belfast's maritime heritage on the site of the former Harland & Wolff shipyard in the city's Titanic Quarter where the RMS Titanic was built.
You'll have worked up a hunger by now so your guide will drop you into the city centre for some free time and to grab a bit to eat (own expense). There are lots of things to discover and explore in this vibrant city. Here are some suggestions –
• Visit the busiest and arguably the best bar in Belfast. The Victorian Crown Bar.
• Visit the Grand Opera house and visit St. Anne's cathedral.
• The Albert Memorial Clock, Belfast's own leaning clock tower.
• Visit one of the main landmark buildings in the city - Belfast City Hall.
After lunch at your own expense, your guide will take you to the Political taxi tour, you will be taken to both the republican and loyalist areas of the city. See the peace wall and many interesting murals for both side of the conflict. Then you will experience Political tour of Belfast city where you would get to know the troubled past of Belfast and you will have some free time there to explore.
Sadly all great adventures must come to an end. However the memories will last a lifetime so sit back while your guide plays some traditional music and enjoy reminiscing about your day tour to the north as you make your way back to Dublin.
