Norman R.

Belfast, Ulster, United Kingdom

Hi Folks I'm Norman, 45 years of age, lived in working class Belfast through The Troubles and seen my beautiful city transform into one of the major tour destinations of modern Europe.

We can trace the physical footprint in history British/Irish that caused a 25 year conflict where everybody in Northern Ireland was affected.

With nearly 700 excellent reviews l have guided literally thousands of visitors around all key sites in Belfast and beyond over the last 20 years. I have featured on many documentaries from political to sightseeing.

Both me and my colleagues are passionate about the story of the conflict as we all have a story to tell from past experiences.

The Belfast people have a brilliant sense of humour because if they didnt laugh they would cry. They are passionate about their culture and of course great craic which means irish for fun and not the drug lol. To that end I also offer guided private tours around the beautiful Antrim coast, visiting Giants Causeway as well as our popular Game of Thrones tour.

I'm very proud over the years to have met and welcomed some famous people on our tours,
Rick Steves Ireland, Verne Troyer (Austin Powers), Ross Kemp (Extreme World), Plus a lot of VIPs l cant mention. I am also the only tour guide from Belfast recommended in the Lonely Planet Travel Book, Frommers Giide Book and Let's Go Ireland.

My vehicle is a luxury Mercedes MPV with full leather and air conditioning and can carries upto 7passenegrs

As I say to my visitors, as much as you enjoy your tour it's more of an education.

See you in Belfast!

A Recent Review of this guide

Norman was a great guide. He seemed to know how to take all of our must see interest and put them in order so the tour flowed very nicely. We were a group of 8 in two vans and Norman partner in the second van was very knowledgeable about the murals and wall dividing the neighborhoods in Northern Belfast. The cathedrals were beautiful and the information about St. Patrick were stories I had never heard before. The tor was very informative. Job well done by both guides
