Overview

    What to Expect
    This is award winning personal guided tour around the famous Belfast murals, painted by ex-prisoners and locals from both sides of the community, these murals tell individual stories of conflict, community strife, civil rights, civil unrest, stories of inspiration, prison protests and much much more.

    Your local guide, through his personal experience of living through The Troubles and working his London cab in these working class communities will give you an understanding of a life at risk every day. You will hear the four versions of our history; Loyalist version, Republican version, British version then the truth. We relate stories to you in a very easy to understand format, with the aid of photographs/video from our troubled past depicting the neighborhoods you will visit.

    This tour seriously made our trip. We got a detailed and honest insight into what the troubles were really like and I can honestly say it wouldn't have been half as good without Jim our driver. We got to see murals and areas of Shankill, Falls and Ballymurphy that we wouldn't
