Thank you so much for the kind words and I'm really pleased that you both enjoyed the tour. The longer tour is aimed at adults but the shorter Hidden Belfast tour is ideal for this with children and lasts approximately 1.5 hours.

Very chatty and likeable guy who is full of all sorts of information and stories about the city of Belfast and imparts it in a humourous way. He pointed us to Maddens bar for live music where we enjoyed an impromptu concert.

Arthur was really good at conveying information about the history of Ireland , He was helpful, witty and a real treat to listen to. He obviously loves his country and he made an already first-class tour even more enjoyable.
