DC Tours run award-winning city centre walking tours.
Established in 2013, DC Tours run three Belfast walking tours;
Starting at Belfast City Hall with an expert guide, over 2 hours, you will visit eight locations where some of the most tragic events of the conflict occurred. The tour allows you to explore and understand the most turbulent period in Belfast's recent past and what it was like to live in Belfast during the Troubles.
Whilst walking through the Cathedral Quarter and finishing on the banks of the River Lagan, the tour will also explain the peace-building process and demonstrate the reconciliation and regeneration which has taken place in the city since the ceasefires in the early 1990s.
The tour is a way for you to get a real feel for the history of the city. Many guests say they have felt transported back in time through the rich and detailed story-telling. Witness how far the city has come since those dark days and see Belfast in a new light.
The trained guides are among the most knowledgeable conflict historians in Northern Ireland.
The tour is recognised as being balanced, objective and historically accurate. It is unbiased and suitable for all visitors to Belfast, regardless of how much or little they already know of the troubled past.
The Belfast City Church Tour is a 2 hour tour of six of the most beautiful and interesting Protestant and Roman Catholic churches in the city, costing just £15 per person.
Covering everything from art and architecture to the individual Christian heritages and histories of each one, this tour is for anyone who enjoys visiting churches while on holiday. A scheduled tour runs every Friday at 1.45pm, and private tours are available Monday to Thursday. These private tours cost a minimum of £45 for 1-3 people, and £15 per person for parties of 4+.
The West Belfast Walking Tour runs every Monday at 2.00pm and costs £15 per person. Your guide for this tour is a conflict mediation specialist who has worked extensively with these communities. Over the course of 2.5 hours you will visit the murals and memorial gardens on the Falls Road and Shankill Road along with the peaceline which separates the two communities. This tour is another great way of learning about the history of the Troubles and the ongoing peace and reconciliation process from an expert and impartial guide.
Private bookings can also be accommodated for groups and DC Tours have an extensive range of tours and activities for study and educational groups.
