I have lived in Belfast all my life and have worked as a taxi driver for 15 years prior to becoming a tour guide.
As I like to travel myself I appreciate the concept of customer service, so one of the most important aspects of being a tour guide is understanding that the expectations of travellers are different from person to person.
I have toured with the traveller who wants to pack as much in over a short period of time, to the traveller who likes a leisurely tour, whether it be the rich industrial heritage/history of shipbuilding the linen/flax mills of Belfast that where important during two world wars, or discovering the causes of our 'colourful' political history of the last 96 years, to trips farther afield to the north coast which includes the Giants Causeway, Cushendun Caves or as far as Portrush. So, folks feel free to contact me with any enquiries regarding established tours, or any suggestions regarding structuring a tour to meet your needs.
A Recent Review of this guide
We had a fantastic day with Jim! He took us to all the places on our long list of must see sights! Jim was accommodating, personable, and flexible. Prior to our tour he quickly answered my emails and helped personalize our tour. His van was perfect for touring and he drove us safely to our destinations. Jim's friendly manor and humor made this tour a delightful experience that we won't soon forget! All our family enjoyed our day with Jim and that includes the 3 generations that were on our tour!
