My daughter and I had one day in Belfast, and we are so glad that we incorporated a black taxi tour. Our driver Mr. Flynn provided incredible balanced insight into Belfast’s history. He even shared some of his personal stories which made our trip a once in a life time experience! Highly recommend.

Martin was an exceptional tour guide. He spoke with heart and soul about the history, his experiences and that of others. He went above and beyond to give me the most insightful tour, and gave more of his own time to show me more. I have learned so much and have Martin to thank for that. I would highly recommend the tour with Martin.

My wife and I found the experience expensive and were disappointed with the slightly late arrival of the driver. Nevertheless we were captivated by his passionate story and commitment to showing us the territory covered during Belfast’s troubled history including the present, taking more than one hour in the end
