An amazing tour of Belfast with Martin. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Belfast with great stories and personal encounters from the past. I would highly recommend a trip for all.

For avid fans of the series it is well worthwhile. The guide was excellent and was enthusiastic about the series. A different way to see Belfast. As for the city, it needs a bit of upgrading.

Joseph Lyons was a brilliant guide, he was very informative. We were a group of 4 and had come up from Dublin for a night, it’s well worth going on this tour.

I learned a lot on this walking tour. I liked that he showed pictures along the way to give you a better sense of the terrors in the past.

The history, stories and murals were excellent. So much detail provided about it all by the tour guide.
