Two Northern Ireland tours have beaten off some stiff competition to clinch their places among the UK's top 10 bookable tourist experiences in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for Experiences, which are voted on by travellers.
The Belfast Troubles City Centre Walking Tour ranked best of the experiences on offer here, taking the fourth spot from the top behind only three London attractions. While the Game Of Thrones and Giant's Causeway day tour brought up the rear in tenth place, with a well deserved top 10 spot. The two Northern Irish tours are the only attractions listed outside of London, Edinburgh and the Oxford University Walking Tour on the list.
Since the official end of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, Belfast has flourished, though the impact of the 30-year conflict is still keenly felt by those who live there. On this walking tour, you'll visit locations where key events took place and get an insider perspective on the conflict, its lingering effects, and Northern Ireland’s path to peace.
