      Belfast Guided Sightseeing Drive: The Troubles, The Titanic, and Tomorrow

      Belfast, Northern Ireland
      From (USD) $434 Per Person (Minimum 8)
      Highlights
      • The Troubles: See the streets where some of Belfast's worst rioting took place, along with the vivid house murals that marked territories and allegiances.
      • Harland and Wolff shipyard: It's been over a century since the world's unluckiest passenger ship slid down the slipways, but the Titanic is still a living presence here.
      • Stormont Parliamentary Buildings: A stunning building made of stone and granite where today's Parliament of Northern Ireland convenes.
      About this Belfast tour

      Memories of blood-stained streets and violent crowds haunt the streets of Belfast, Ireland's principal city once fraught with conflict. This tour gives you a rollercoaster narrative, from the city's early history as a major port of trade and shipbuilding center, through its tumultuous past known as “The Troubles” to the remarkable strides taken since then toward a lasting peace.

      On your drive through the city you'll encounter infamous monuments to the "Troubles," the chaotic 30-year civil rivalry between the Catholics and Protestants. You can take a "wee dander" (as they say) to the murals on the gable ends of houses, once a symbol of the hatred, violence, and division of Belfast's people. You'll see the Shankill Road, the scene of the worst rioting, where so many lives were taken and families destroyed.

      You'll see the 30-foot gates built to protect the rival communities – today some are open and unused as a symbol of Belfast's progression toward peace. Later you'll take a drive to the stone and granite Parliament Building of Stormont, where the Northern Ireland Political Assembly has ushered in a new era of peaceful political participation, as Northern Ireland's bloody past fades in the distance.

      Belfast's past may be bloody, but its future is decidedly bright. Experience the horror of the city's history, and the resilience and determination of its people on our guided sightseeing drive, a sweeping introduction into one of Ireland's most interesting cities.

      Titanic snobs

      In the era of the ill-fated Titanic, the passenger list was a mirror of society – a roster with names, titles, and place of residence was distributed aboard ship after leaving port. The snootiest first-class passengers would review the list by dinner to identify any "important" people worth knowing.
