William Dickson BEM is the longest serving tour guide in Belfast. During the height of the 'Belfast Troubles' he would be seen taking groups around his beloved city. Time has moved on and William is no longer doing tours on his own and many more guides are available today, but William is still in great demand guiding on coaches and walking tours.
Tours include 'The Blackstaff Way' which is a great introduction to Belfast, and 'The Farset Way' showing some of the oldest parts of Belfast. 'The Bible Way' is ideal for church groups interested in the role the Bible played in Belfast's history. 'The Doctor's Way' tour commemorates the life and times of famous Belfast doctors and the mark they made on the city. Tours always take place - rain or shine. Tours start at a time and place agreed by the group organizer. Be prepared for the Belfast winter weather and wear something warm. Belfast City Walking Tours & Coach Guide Services provide a wide range of themed walking tours and can provide one to suit the interests of a particular group. We also can provide a guide on your coach. All tours are led by an internationally recognized Blue Badge Guide. Advance booking is essential.Learn More
Dear Billy, Thank you for all your assistance over the last 6 months or so and for making the trip so interesting. One or two of our group had misgivings about travelling to Belfast, given its recent history, but they freely admitted that they had their ‘eyes opened’ by the trip. Very positive feedback from everyone especially for the poetry and the singing plus the recommendation of The Points. Were I doing the trip again, I would have liked to have a bit more on ‘The Troubles’ and what lay behind them. However at our final dinner at James Street South, one couple who were a mixed Protestant/ Catholic marriage spoke emotionally about how they could understand the issues much better now. All in all a big success from my point of view, plus a relief that it all went well. There was a lot of detail to cover. Fortunately it is not our turn again for a few years! Warmest personal regards and thanks, Lindsay F-----from London.
