Excellent tour led by Marti - a true "Local" with a very comprehensive knowledge of his history and a very keen eye to detail on the things that make Belfast "Special" - everything from Street Art - hard to find pubs - abandoned but once loved buildings - art work - local buskers - Churches - he was able to cover all interests / aspects of Belfast a really worthwhile - value for money and entertaining tour - highly recommended.

Truly for all ages:)

We booked Marti’s tour because it said it was for all ages. We were in Belfast with our 11y old son and the most of the tours are for 14y +. Marti truly loves and knows his city but above all he is a good communicator: we were impressed by the way he reached out to our son, one would say they were doing the tour together;) Adam will not easily forget the McLaren at the front of the Merchant hotel and the above one million euro watch he could put on his wrist! And in the meantime we got a good insight in how the life is in this inspiring city that has suffered so much during the Troubles and now is looking so much forward. Thank you so much, Marti, we wish you all the best!

Marty was fun, and we learned a lot!

Marty will conduct his eclectic Belfast tour according to your wishes. I like history, architecture, and music (especially Snow Patrol), and Marty gave my friend and I some of each. He spent part of the first hour telling us Northern Ireland's history (which I was really interested in) and then took us around to places that are important to that history. He showed us SP's plaque in the Cathedral Bar area and talked about the significance of Belfast's extensive street art. He pointed out historic buildings and monuments, and suggested other places we might want to see that there wasn't time for on his tour. At the end we met a few other people who wanted Marty to do a pub crawl with them and we went along to the first stop, which was lovely. In other words, whatever you want, you will get. We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this tour.
