Belfast, United Kingdom

CERTIFIED by NCFE, Level 2 Diploma in tour guiding, (this course had an input from and was supported by members of NITGA) Hi my name is Joe, I am 50 years old, a native of West Belfast and have been working as a personal tour guide for over 15 years and I narrate and translate the political murals of Belfast city seen in both sides of the political divide, giving you my guests a much broader understanding of the most recent conflict in Irish history.

Recently I completed 2 courses with Belfast Metropolitan college, "an introduction to tour guiding" and "diploma in tour guiding level 2",
I am certified by NCFE, in conjunction with Belfast MET. recognised and approved by many Hotels , groups and others in the NI tourist industry

Come with me on a personal tour around these world famous murals and hear the stories each one has to tell.
Let me give you first hand accounts of life growing up in this war torn city.

Travel in comfort and privacy in my new 8 pax seat mini van, fully air conditioned, leather seats private glass, relax in comfort and forget about the hustle and bustle of larger groups as you absorb all I have to offer.

I promise you a tour that will be informative and unforgettable.

Belfast is a vibrant city, Don't be put off by its past, be enthralled by its present and like us confident about its future.
For larger groups we can provide 16, 32 and 54 seater coaches,
