Overview

Experience Belfast provides you with the best overview of Belfast you will find. Originally a walking tour which could best be described as street theatre, it's a theatrical experience available as a Day Tour, Walking Tour or Coach Tour. We provide brilliant tours for individuals and groups and we also arrange workshops with writers, politicians and journalists. We consistently receive excellent reviews on Trip Advisor for a reason, this is one of the best tours you'll ever do. If you want something that's informed, intelligent, good fun and craic, we're right up your street.

Thank you so much for the kind words. The Day Tour which comprises my walking tour, a great pub lunch with drink and a black taxi tour is a great value way to spend a day in Belfast. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

Hello! Quick question :) so this tour is no longer a tip based tour but a £15 per person walking tour ? I'm going to Belfast and I'm doing my budget so itd be great to know it

Answer
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.
