  • Exceptional historical knowledge with down to earth Belfast craic.

    I had a fantastic time on Belfast Walking Tour’s Historic Pub Crawl. Paul & Larry were amazing guides who showed us around some of Belfast’s oldest and most unique pubs. From the smallest pub to the oldest pub, each its own remarkable story. They packed a lot of history in. I’d highly recommend Belfast Walking Tours to anyone wanting to explore Belfast.

  • Great tour. Highly recommended.

    Larry did a wonderful job with this tour. He was able to tailor it to our groups needs and was very flexible with us. I loved the spots we went to on the tour and the history that he shared with them. I would definitely recommend this tour!

  • Do not miss this experience

    I have been on 2 different Belfast Waking Tours and both were amazing. Larry's knowledge of Belfast history is unbelievable and he made the tours both enjoyable and informative. Do not miss the opportunity to join one of these tours... first class.

  • These guys know their stuff!

    I attended Belfast Walking Tours' architectural tour in Belfast city entre, and would certainly recommend the tour. Larry, who led the tour was knowledgeable and engaging, and certainly knows his stuff. I went to school in Belfast city centre for years, and always worked there, but, despite this, I picked up lots of information on the tour, which I'm sure would be of interest to both tourists and locals alike. I hope to go on a few more of Belfast Walking Tours' walks, and would highly recommend

  • Pack up your Troubles
