This tour of Belfast with a black taxi driver who lived through the civil rights clash of The Troubles allows you to learn loads more about the city's complicated history than you would traveling on your own. Sit back in rapt attention to your driver's narration, as you visit the famous Belfast murals on Falls Road and Shankill Road, painted by ex-prisoners on both sides of the conflict.

Hear four versions of the city's history: the British version, the Republican version, the Loyalist version, and the truth according to someone who lived through it. Listening to your guide's narrative helps you make sense of a tangled history that is complicated and difficult to understand for visitors. You'll also see photos and videos depicting the neighborhoods visited on the tour as they were at that time.

Fascinating and disturbing

This is a very personal and profound view of Belfast and the "troubles" from someone who has lived through them. Balanced view of both sides and disturbing that this divide continues to this day.

What an interesting question for all sorts of reasons, and I don't have a straight yes or no. But the education system in NI is excellent, and I am sure some of the tour guides would have a working knowledge of French. I can... More
