Martin came and collected us from Belfast tourist information center. It was very emotional but unforgettable experience. Martin was excellent, even though we had read quite a bit about the history, experiencing it through the murrals and martins stories was one of a kind experience. It was very chilly and rainy morning but Martin went above and beyond with his narrations and tour. He gave insight on both sides of the trouble. Taxi tour was highlight of our Northern ireland experience and credit goes to Martin!!
A must do thing if you are visiting belfast!!

A great morning out on a taxi tour with our fantastic and knowledgeable guide Mark. If you want to gain an insight into political History of the North and particularly Belfast this tour is a must visiting both sides of the conflict zone. Mark was an expert and great fun. He picked us up on time outside our agreed pick up point,and stopped at several locations on the Falls and Shankhill Roads and dropped us at the Crumlin Road Gaol, the next stop on our Belfast visit. Highly recommend for everyone.

Fantastic yet emotional tour of the troubled Belfast City history. The "oppressed and troubled" people of the United States have no idea of what the tension Belfast citizens go through every day. If they could only see what true hate and division was really like. Our driver "Conor" was very good and informative. They provided us with a child car seat.

Micky Russell came and collected me at the Titianic Experience (which was excellent also) last evening and he went beyond the call of duty in giving me an informative and detailed tour. He confirmed much of what I had figured out over years so no more books for me. I was able ask him any question so this helped. He wasnt your 'normal' tour guide having been directly involved himself in the Troubles or the Dirty War as he called. Superb....

Taxi Trax is great! They were beyond accommodating when I requested an early Saturday morning Belfast Mural Tour, and they even dropped me off at the train station afterwards. I had Patrick as a guide and he was so informative and friendly. He really knows what he's talking about, and structures his tours in a way that make sense of Belfast's social/political history. Definitely the highlight of my weekend trip to Belfast! If you want to take a black cab tour in Belfast, do it through Taxi Trax! Again, it was so easy to book a tour with them, Patrick was an amazing guide, and I'm pretty sure they offer the best rates on black cab tours.
