Our Belfast Mural Tour is conducted by local guides that grew up in the areas you tour through with first hand accounts of the stories painted on the walls. We provide the tour in Executive Mercedes Vehicles to give you the best possible experience! Belfast City was one of the most divided cities in Europe from 1969 through to the 2000's, with small changes in society there has been more inclusion from both sides of the wall and a cultural shift to a more relaxed view on the politics that once governed the streets. The Belfast City Mural Tour will bring you back in time to 1969 where you will be shown the different areas throughout the city where the events unfolded. The tour lasting approximately 90 minutes will see you cover both sides of the wall, the Nationalist Falls Road alongside the Unionist Shankill Road. The art on the walls joined with the stories provided by your guide will leave you on the edge of your seat, they have first hand accounts that are chilling on their own.
