About
DC Tours run daily Belfast walking tours. 'A History of Terror' is a 2 hour 30 minute tour. It visits 7 sites in Belfast city centre where some of the most important events of the conflict known as 'the Troubles' took place. You will learn about the Troubles, discover the stories of the people involved, the reasons why it started, how the peace process took shape and the journey to the active, vibrant city you see today. It is the only Troubles Tour to be awarded an 'Excellent' rating by our Tourist Board. It was ranked the No.4 Experience in the U.K. by TripAdvisor in 2019. Our ‘Best of Belfast’ walking tour is your essential introduction to the city, its greater history, the stories of its people, its legends and its landmarks. Our guides are Belfast natives and experts in their fields, one was named 'Top UK Tour Guide 2019' at the World Guide Awards. The tours run in the mornings and advance booking is advised. Our 'DC Tours Belfast' app offers self-guided audio tours too.

Very insightful tour and expertly guided through by Steve. Good pace and never felt too rushed or dragging. Well placed coffee and toilet break as required. Very useful history at the start to provide context. Easily identifiable and accessible start and end points to carry on further exploration. Thoroughly recommended for both avid historians looking to top up their knowledge of specific events and those keen to learn for the first time.

This was an excellent tour, the guide was able to summarise in only 2.5 hours the history of Northern Ireland and the impact it has had on every person who lives there. It was done with feeling from someone who has lived through the troubles but wants to see a community where people can live together and for the city to thrive. This would appeal to people who know either a lot about the troubles from the media or just the headlines.

Paul (our guide) had us totally engaged from start to finish. His knowledge and experience of the conflict history was first class and fascinating. We wanted to learn about the troubles and this was an exceptional way of learning all about them.
The tour duration was also perfect.

A not to be missed tour!

The History of Terror walking tour was excellent from start to finish. Chris was a top class guide, easy to listen to especially with the headsets he gave out and easy to talk to. 2 hours flew by. Thank you.

The Best of Belfast tour was fantastic. Steve was an amazing, interesting, witty and articulate tour guide. It was great to learn about the individuals that made a difference in the history of Belfast. Steve also showed the hidden gems of the city and had some fantastic restaurant, cafe and bar recommendations which were off the beaten track! Would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Belfast for a trip!
