Norman is an outstanding tour guide, with a strong knowledge of Belfast history. He catered the day to our interests and he stopped multiple times for local photo opportunities. The Belfast tour and our time with Norman exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend him to others.

Norman made our day in Belfast. Provided interesting insights and prepared us to make most of each of sights on our itinerary. Also modified itinerary to include quilt shop to pickup local fabrics. Definitely will book Norman on next visit to Belfast.

Good content but tour was short and seemed rushed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry you felt that way. You stated you wanted a three hour tour. Under no circumstances was the tour rushed in any way. All that is listed on my tour you where shown in sufficient time. As you where in Belfast for a one day visit on a Cruise Ship. I wanted to give you time to do the Titanic Museum Tour which takes at least 90 minutes and also give you time to explore the city afterwards. To be honest with you kept looking at your watch which made me feel that you where in a rush. Regards Norman

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
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lol we had a very unusual hot summer this year. Thanks for the review

When you first meet Norman you feel as though you have known him your entire life. His stories, sense of humor and wit made our time with him a highlight of our trip to Belfast. He is knowledgeable, flexible and very down to earth. Norman provided a clear and informative history as well as personal experiences which made the tour something we will never forget. Thanks to him this tour was everything we could have wanted and more!

Bette BatsonUnited States
Norman is a very personable guide. He was prompt and his vehicle was clean and in good repair. The tour he did for us, Giants Causeway and Game of Thrones sites was as described. He even added some extra places. We had been to Belfast before so passed on seeing the murals and the wall. We would use him again if we came back to Belfast.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bette Thank you for your kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour with me

Norman was great. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about Belfast. He took us on a city tour with an emphasis on the Troubles. We learned much about the history and what life was like during that difficult time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind review
Kelly LieseUnited States
Norman took us on exciting Game of Thrones tour which especially enjoyed by our 27 yr old son but was loved by all 5 of us. We are also are interested in history and and Norman also took us through the city and to the area with the murals and the wall significant during "The Troubles" between Northern and Southern Ireland. He is a wonderful guide and gave us a wonderful day. Even the lunch stop was perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kelly It was a pleasure showing you are beautiful country

Norman was absolutely fantastic! We saw everything I wanted to see and even a few things I didn't think we'd have time for. Being a Belfast native he was really able to convey the realities of what has gone on there past and present in a meaningful and memorable way. Very professional and friendly, you won't be disappointed if you book a tour with him!

A brilliant tour with a very patient guide who spoke clearly to those of us who didn't have English as their first language and answered all of our many many questions.

Bill ZwaskisUnited States
Norman was an incredibly gracious and informative guide. From the moment he picked us up at the train station we felt like we'd made a new friend. He tailored our tour to make sure we got to see the things we wanted to see. He took his time explaining the rich history of Belfast, while providing a generous helping of his own personal stories from growing up there. His vehicle was luxurious and comfortable, too! A great experience for sure! Ask for Norman by name - you won't be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed it. Unfortunately I can not change the price. As it's set up for upto 7 passengers

Norman deserves the utmost recognition for his dedication to tourists visiting Belfast in that he does not leave any sites unvisited and his extreme friendliness makes you feel like he's family. When visiting Belfast, I recommend reserving a tour with Norman.

Norman was very knowledgeable and gave us great insight into Belfast's history and geography and the depth of meaning various landmarks hold to this day. His tour was the perfect introduction to the city as well as the entire area of Northern Ireland. He was friendly and personable, and flexible with our miscommunication is start-time! I highly recommend this tour!!

Our party of two met Norman at the train station and enjoyed his three-hour Belfast political tour. We found Norman to be thorough and unbiased in his presentation of the history and the ongoing struggles present in Belfast. We were able to see all the sights and get his expert commentary along the way. I would recommend Norman and this tour to anyone getting their first taste of Belfast.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Chris thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure to show you amd Monty around Belfast and I hope you learnt a lot in the time we spent together. Norman
