This tour is brilliant, interesting, informative and funny. Arthur brought Belfast to life and made me really think about everything that has happened in Belfast. I loved the tour, the Titanic experience and the trip to the Giants Causeway. Lots of laughs along the way....More

Arthur was excellent. He was so funny. I really enjoyed those nearly 3 hours with him which have been full of interesting stuff about the city and history of Belfast. Moreover, this man can sing!!! "Hey hey fat boy..."

Thanks for the review Matthias. For groups particularly those whose English is not their first language, I bring the guitar along. It helps make the points more easily and of course it's fun!!!

Response from Arthur M | Property representative |
Hi Maria - yup there's a fee of £15. Why? Because I wasn't getting enough people to make a 'tip based' tour sustainable. I don't run scheduled tours so I'd need at least 2 or 3 people on a tour.
