Overview

Belfast Compass Tours provides informative and entertaining walking tours of Belfast. There are two key walks: one of Belfast City Centre and the other of the historic North Belfast. Each tour lasts 1.5 Hours, taking you back through 400 years of this famous city and some of the key events that have happened here, as well as providing good exercise (we recommend you bring waterproof clothing as unfortunately we can't guarantee the weather!) Please contact Denis for prices, which we trust you will find highly competitive.

Denis knowledge of Belfast was exceptional. Even on a freezing day in February a walking tour of central Belfast added value to our long weekend visit to Belfast. Well worth £7. Thanks Denis.
