Paul D.

Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

Hi folks my name is Paul D. I was born in Belfast in 1969 and grew up in the North of the City at the start of the current conflict that we are now just coming through.

I have been a taxi driver chauffeur and have specialised in city tours etc for the last 12 years.

Whilst I am new to this site and to ToursByLocals I have been around since the start of the Troubles, so why not book yourself on the 1st Class Tour by a Local.

I am pleased to be associated with ToursByLocals and offer you (5*) yes Five Star Tours.

Growing up in North Belfast wasn't an easy task as the North of the City was one of the worst if not thee worst areas to live during the Troubles.

During the conflict North Belfast has seen some of the worst atrocities during our troubled past. In my opinion North Belfast was the hardest hit area during the Troubles.

The early 1980's seen some of the worst Street violence that I ever recall this was during the time that Bobby Sands lead the Republican Hunger Strike that saw him and 9 of his fellow comrades gave their lives for the cause of Irish Unity, Freedom, and more importantly for their civil liberty and rights behind the bars of Long Kesh Prison and all other prisons throughout the North of Ireland.

The city murals political tour, the most famous in Belfast Northern Ireland. We don't hold back nor do we take short cuts, you get what you pay for, A 1st class tour.

See Both sides of the divide Protestant and Catholic sides the Peace Walls and the Murals, and not forgetting the Peace Gates that are still opened and closed on a daily basis separating Both communities.

Not forgetting The North Coast. Yes, take a day trip to the Giant's Causeway, stopping off at some of the Game of Thrones film sights.

My tours can be customized, it is flexible. Looking forward to see you in Belfast!
