Service Description

Belfast and Northern Ireland is a place filled with history, good and bad, a place of culture and adventure. Let Taxi Tours Belfast tell you the tale of it all with one of our amazing adventure tours. Belfast was at the heart of a bloody, sectarian conflict for over thirty years. Known as ‘The Troubles’, the violence claimed the lives of over 3,500 people and injured nearly 50,000 people. On one side was the Catholic population, who were Nationalist and Republican in their political outlook and wanted Northern Ireland to be united with the Republic of Ireland. And on the other side was the Protestant community, Loyalist and Unionist, in their political outlook and who wanted Northern Ireland to remain under British rule. The grievances of both communities are captured on infamous murals dotted throughout Belfast. Featuring free pick-ups from the city centre, your guide will take you through the narrow streets of Belfast and explain the stories behind every mural. Hear first-hand what it was like to live through Northern Ireland’s most brutal period from local guides. You’ll visit murals featuring pleas for civil rights and peace and some paying homage to the British Monarchy. And you’ll visit violent murals featuring paramilitaries holding guns and carrying sinister warnings to other community. Your guide will take you to murals that highlight atrocities carried out in the name of Republicanism and Loyalism. Visit 25-foot Peace Walls that keep the Catholic and Protestant communities apart to this day, 25 years after the Good Friday Agreement. You’ll explore a side of Belfast that is as spine-tingling as it is emotional, and you’ll have the opportunity to take photographs at each location.
