A Belfast Mural Taxi Tour will take you on an educational and enlightening journey of the famous Belfast murals. You will learn the history and politics of Belfast and Ireland – particularly about the period known as ‘the troubles’.
Your Taxi Trax tour guide will be a local person, with local knowledge, who lived through the troubles. Your tour guide will expertly and impartially explain how the murals help to tell the story of the Northern Ireland conflict and how we arrived at the current peace process.
The tour focuses on ‘both sides’ of our community. You will visit the mainly Catholic (or Nationalist) Falls Road and the mainly Protestant (or Unionist) Shankill Road. You will cross the ‘peace line’ or ‘peace wall’ that continues to separate both communities. Both sides have used murals to tell their story, celebrate their past and raise awareness about how political decisions affected their communities.
Our Belfast Murals Taxi Tour is guaranteed to educate, enlighten and entertain. Taxi Trax is the original and official belfast Taxi Tours company and is rated the maximum 5 stars on Trip Advisor.
