A city is made of buildings, history, people and its stories. We got all of it in this two and a half hour guided tour done by Sean, Arthur's apprentice and a friend. Apparently I've heard Teenage kicks millions times before, I just never knew...More

Thank you for your kind words and I will pass them onto young Sean who like me is in his fifties! We keep the facts accurate but we illustrate through our own personal narratives. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

Arthur Magee was a very knowledgeable guide, having known Belfast all his life. He gave us interesting historical details and was a great entertainer. When two people failed to return to the group at one point he dealt with the situation very calmly.

Thank you for your lovely review. Whether it's for 1 person, 10 or a coach load of people, I love showing people my city. I also never try to turn a drama into a crisis.

Thanks Tina. So glad you enjoyed the tour. I think I cover the 'troubles' well - it's part of the story but not the only story. I try to provide the best overview of the city you'll get.

Recently visited Belfast and were fortunate to have Arthur as our guide... very informative and entertains no, good mix of history, cultural and more recent events including punks and boxers. Would recommend.

Thanks Carol. There's not one single Belfast, like any place we've a multitude of stories and characters. As you say, it's the mix, we've a past but we also hopefully have a future.

Sean conducted the trip on behalf of Arthur and was absolutely fantastic. The visits to the churches and every iconic venue in Belfast was much appreciated. Sean provided a lot of history and insights. In all, enjoyed the entire trip. Thank you.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review which I will pass on to Sean. We use local guides because people are what make Belfast. With a local person to lead your tour you can get that sense of us.
