Arthur is a spellbinding storyteller! TripAdvisor

An unmissable tour with substance which brought Belfast alive. Arthur is a spellbinding storyteller and this tour felt deeply personal. It was authentic, thorough and very moving.

A great tour Trip Advisor

Had a great time on the tour. It was informative and interesting and Arthur was funny and kept the tour entertaining. You could tell Arthur knew every detail of Belfast’s history. I really enjoyed that, whilst there was plenty of information about the troubles, Arthur also branched further out and explored other areas of Belfast’s history. Would definitely recommend this tour for anyone wanting to learn more about Belfast!

Excellent and informative walking tour. TripAdvisor

After meeting Arthur at 10 he explained the details of the walking tour to us and set off. The tour was excellent and Arthur is very knowledgeable about the history of Belfast and walked us through narrating with humour, shocking and dark facts and detailed accounts of all aspects of this amazing city. Even finishing off with a location of a cheap pint of the black stuff. Highly recommended and will do it all again on our next visit. Thank you.

Both insightful and entertaining! TripAdvisor

Arthur's tour was engaged, insightful and funny! It was great to meet someone with so many connections to Belfast. He is both knowledgable and passionate about the information he shares and I especially loved the inclusion of his personal music. Thanks for sharing your experiences and thoughtful perceptions about the city!

As a 20 year old, I feel so privileged to have experienced Arthur's amazing tour around Belfast! Arthur is intrinsically connected to Belfast and that comes across in his extremely knowledgeable, dynamic and enjoyable tour that details the Troubles and their legacy. Arthur himself is an amazing pillar of the community and guide, and I honestly can't recommend him enough! I was fully captivated throughout the tour and I can't thank Arthur enough for the opportunity of such an informative insight into Belfast's history.

Arthur your tour was fabulous it took me through the highs and lows of Belfast City. With a small group it was very intimate and you shared very clear information without judgement. We had a great laugh as well as absolute sadness. The weather held out well and Arthur showed his talent of singing and songwriting. Thank you greatfully. Patsy the Kiwi

The tour was great, Arthur was our guide and he is an outstanding guide. Arthur is friendly, engaging, full of energy and incredibly knowledgeable. It was neat getting to know the history of this fascinating city. I had a great time! Definitely highly recommend this tour to anyone that is visiting Belfast for a short time and wants to make the most of one day.

We picked this tour over other options as it includes visits to the most significant locations of the troubles (along Falls Road), whilst others only concentrate on the inner city. Arthur was very knowledgeable and gave a well balanced account of Belfast's history. The tour was well planned, a good duration/distance, and well worth the price. My partner and I really enjoyed our trip to Belfast and would highly recommend this tour to others who are keen to learn more about the troubles.

While Arthur (and we had Sean on the tour as well) is incredibly knowledgeable about Belfast--its people, its history, its landmarks, etc., it is his ability to articulate that knowledge to visitors with passion, humor, and personal experiences in such an engaging manner with our group, that really set this tour apart for us. Arthur and Sean have set the bar very high for a great walking tour in any location, and that will be difficult to exceed. A wonderful tour that we would absolutely recommend to any Belfast visitor!
