We really enjoyed our tour of Belfast with Joe. His knowledge of the history and current Belfast life was amazing. If you are going to Belfast be sure to take the "Troubles" tour. Joe brings a very personal and interesting story to those times. Above all his personality and engagement with our group of 6 made the tour go way beyond the normal tour experience. We highly recommend Joe for any tour you are considering but especially this one. Jim, Jeanne, Don, Sharon, Paul, and Kerri

Our tour of Belfast with Joe was superb. He was a remarkable guide with seemingly unlimited knowledge about the history of Belfast and "The Troubles." He was charming, courteous, and solicitous of our comfort. It was a pleasure to spend the morning with him.

We hired Joe for 2 days based on previously posted comments. Joe was extremely passionate shared his personal experience, was very keen to share his knowledge, past, present and future about Belfast. We traveled in style (warm) at a pace we could absorb the information. Apart from the tour we did 3 hours thru the Titanic experience at our pace. Joe, thank you for making our day an exceptional experience. We can highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David It was a real entertaining day with you both Joe

We booked two days back to back with Joe and this was our second day. Knowing little about the Troubles, it was fascinating and Joe handled a difficult history with both honesty and diplomacy. You don't really appreciate the size and diversity of Belfast without doing this tour of the City and its history. We loved the City, the people, including Joe, were so warm and welcoming and the food was excellent. Amazing to learn there is a wall with gates that shut in the evening. . . .

Joe was an amazing tour guide. He's knowledgeable, so funny, and made the hours of our tour fly by. His comments on The Troubles, as the tour was called, were evenhanded and insightful. He made the Peace Wall and the various neighborhoods come alive. Our only wish was that the tour could have been longer, but we had to return to our ship.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marilyn It was a wonderful day

Wow,what a great tour. How can you say everything was better than 5 star? From our prompt pick-up at the dock to our requested drop-off at a recommended pub, our day couldn't have been better. Joe was personable, knowledgeable, and so willing to share his pride Belfast. He was also very generous with his time. We felt as though we had met a friend in the city for the day. Thank you for such a quality time, and allowing us to have experiences that I don't feel would be part of other tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Leah, I really enjoyed myself also, I hope this is ok by you, and because it is not every day guests get the chance to meet the artist and help him paint in a mural, but I have featured your pic on my website it was real fun spending the time with you
