Quality and fun walking tours in Belfast City Centre. Experience Belfast offers a long tour (2.5 hrs), short tour (1.25 hrs) and a full day tour (6 hrs).

Belfast is emerging from a troubled past, the legacy of which still haunts the city in the numerous ‘peace walls’ that scar neighbourhoods. They are part of the story but they’re not the only story in a town that was once known for it’s radicalism and humanity. A place that is vibrant and alive with creativity and talent. Belfast has world class visitor attractions but what makes the city special are the people. The walking tour provides you with the complete Belfast Experience covering all aspects of this wonderful, fascinating city. There’s nothing the tour guides don’t know about the place, in fact, they even wrote a book on it, “The Little Book of Belfast”. 
The walking tours start on the pavement outside the main gates of Belfast City Hall. They'll always carry a large green and white umbrella so you can spot them in the crowd. The tour finishes less than 3 minutes away within sight of City Hall.  
The tours are the perfect introduction to the city. The pace is moderate, the craic is 90. There are plenty of photo opportunities as well as tips on what to see, do, drink and eat. Both cover serious issues but both are guaranteed to entertain, fascinate and engage. Tours operate daily in summer with times varying over the winter. For more details see

Long Tour  

There’s More to Belfast than Walls - This tour is aimed at people who want a deeper understanding of Belfast, the troubles, the politics, people, economics, government and humour. It explains the past but looks to the future and places Belfast within the context of a fast changing world. There is plenty to learn about the vibrant creative scene, links to punk rock and Bill Clinton and much more besides. It is not a standard, sightseeing tour, although there are plenty of opportunities for that. In Belfast, it’s often what you don’t see or what is hidden just below the surface that is most illuminating. This is as much a piece of theatricality as it is a standard walking tour which sounds pompous but we’re not! The age range for this tour is 14+.
