Belfast Black Taxi Mural Tour (Also known as the Belfast Black Cab 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 its time of conflict.

Your TaxiTrax tour guide will be a local person, with local knowledge, who lived through these times.  Your tour guide will expertly explain how the murals help to tell the story of the 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. Taxitrax is the original and official Belfast Taxi Tours company and rates the maximum 5 stars on Trip Advisor.

    Our taxi driver Paul didn't only give us the historical facts but he shared his personal experiences and insights. He made us aware that on both sides of the wall people have their issues but tolerance and peace will serve all. We certainly have a better understanding now. Very much appreciated!
