Fun walking tour with quirky highlights and an equally quirky guide! Arthur knows his Belfast history and can expound on other tidbits such as music, bands, art, and TV shows, among other Belfast highlights. Would recommend!

I found this Tour a little by accident but in fact, looking for a knowledgeable person to tell us what Belfast was all about. My husband and I knew very little about the city but it all changed after we met Arthur. He is a gentle man who knows about history and also how to present it. He told us... More

Arthur first and foremost is a really easy going and friendly guy. I had a one on one tour with him so maybe a little less conventional than normal!! This tour is excellent if you want to gain insight into the history, politics and the arts in Belfast. Uniquely Arthur likes glimpse into the future rather than just dwell on... More

You can follow your guide book and visit all the famous places in Belfast. Or you can book a tour with Arthur and hear much more than historic facts. He will take you to secret alleys and places you wouldn´t have found yourself. But then he doesn´t forget the highlights. We especially enjoyed the personal touch of the tour and... More

There were 6 of us. Richard provided very specific instructions of where to get on the bus from the train station and where to meet him. It was a windy, sometimes raining, sometimes sunny, cool day in Belfast. He took the time to learn our names and a little bit about each of us and what our interests were. He... More

Arthur was the tour guide on a short break I took to Belfast recently with Newmarket Holidays. He offered a short walking tour on the morning we arrived which was really great for me to get my bearings, and it gave an insight into Arthur's passion for his city, his country and the past v. the future. I really enjoyed... More

Excellent tour tailored to our group's interest in political and social insight plus reference to punk/new wave music. Arthur is articulate, knowledgable and very funny. He is clearly a good judge of character as his tour was relaxed, rather like walking round with an enthusiastic but irreverent chum which suited us well. We were a fairly diverse group of four...

First class visit to Belfast. Spent at least four hours at the titanic exhibit but could have spent longer. Get there early to avoid the crowds . Visit the city hall, the tour guide is amazingly knowledgable and the entrance is free. Fantastic to see Belfast growing into such a vibrant city and recovering from the troubles of the past

Arthur was a wealth of information and interesting viewpoints about Belfast, Ireland and the world in general. He touched my heart with his original songs. We loved him.
