I would 100% reccomend doing this tour! We had Mick as our driver and he could not have been more friendly!! He gave us an amazing, indepth tour with his never ending knowledge of the area and its past. The tour itself was so interesting and educational but having Mick there showcasing it all made it an enjoyable and fun experience! Would most definitely return to Belfast and do this again and request the same driver!!

The driver. Exceeded him self. Fantastic and very interesting indeed. And well worth every penny. The tour lasted much longer than expected. I give poise to the driver that took me and plenty of stops to explain the paintings in detail and time to take photographs. I would say to anyone. Take the tour. And feel with understand what it's all about. The road is long. But peace will be for all.
