Vad du kommer att göra

We meet outside the front gates of Belfast City Hall. During introductions, you will receive your audio headset. We start by going into the City Hall grounds. Afterwards, we move into the City Centre passing the sites of security cordons and bomb blasts. We travel past some wonderful modern art, winding our way through some of Belfast's famous Entries, historical sights of revolution and intrigue. We move towards the scenic River Lagan which provides great photo opportunities before walking back, towards the Big Fish which you can kiss if you like! Turning back towards the City Centre, we pass the magnificent Custom House and the Leaning Tower of Belfast - The Albert Clock. We move into the vibrant Cathedral Quarter, home to some wonderful mural art and the centre of Belfast's Music, Theatre and Arts scene. Winding through another Entry we pass the locations of incredible historical significance, finishing with a visit to a historic church that sits at the centre of Irish history. The Church is within sight of the City Hall. There's plenty to see on this tour but in Belfast, often it's not what you see, it's what you don't see that tells the real story. We provide a full detailed explanation of what is hidden in plain sight or lies just below the surface and we do so in a fun and entertaining way. The tour is not suitable for children 12 years and younger.
Other things to note
We cover approximately 2.5 miles at a gentle pace. The weather in Belfast is temperate so dress accordingly but we're on the coast and it can rain so come prepared. We provide Listening Sets so I'd advise being at the Meeting Point 5 to 10 minutes early.

We're three Belfast natives, Arthur, Sean & Steve, born and raised in Belfast and we love it - we've even written a book, "The Little Book of Belfast". We're qualified guides with degrees in Law and English. More importantly we've life experiences, being endorsed by a President, playing in rock groups (produced by Martin Hannett (Joy Division, U2)), treading the boards and designing jewellery. Our interest in people is our most important qualification as is our sense of humour. We all share a common humanity on our journey through life and our tours are told from this perspective. We deliver an experience that explains the 'troubles' in great detail but also looks forward and places Belfast within the context of fast changing, post industrial world.

Arthur is the perfect guide for a city with such a sweep of painful and joyful history. He is a storyteller, he knows everyone in the streets, he will show you how to see the city underneath the city, the Belfast of past and present, and offer a hopeful glimmer of where the city may be. He is above all a Belfast native. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the morning with him, and I wouldn’t have left understanding Belfast as well had I not had the unique opportunity of his tour.

Arthur is a local gem! Amazing information without bias to either side. Great facts and he made it incredibly fun! Knew current and past history of the city. Easy pace for my husband who has had a hip replacement.

i ended up getting a lovely personal tour around Belfast. Arthur tailored it to my interests and was full of engaging stories about what it was like growing up during the troubles and the music/sport that unified both sides. we saw lovely sights and i felt like i could ask anything. it was the perfect way to spend my last day in Belfast

Arthur was fab! From our first meeting he made us feel welcome, wanted to know what our expectations were and tailored it to our needs. Although some of his jokes were a bit old 😜, he made it good fun whilst giving us a good insight into the story behind the city. Definitely recommend this tour.

Definitely recommend this tour, thank you!
