Black Taxi Tour Mar 05, 2011
Most hostels in the city will be able to book a 'black taxi tour' for the price of around £30 for approx two hours. It makes sense to go in a group of three or four, so the price can be split.
The taxi driver will take you around some of the main trouble spots in Belfast and provide a commentary on events that happened there and the situation as it stands today. They will drive you through both the Catholic and Protestant areas and through one of the 'peace wall' gates. Its interesting to see the murals painted on the sides of some of the buildings - the taxi driver will explain all of these and allow you to take photos if you wish.
In all, I thought this was an excellent way to learn about 'the troubles' of Northern Ireland. The taxi driver we had was very informed and gave an unbiased commentary.
