Hello! I’m Billy from Belfast. For over 30 years, it has been my privilege to be a tourist guide. In 2006 I qualified as a Blue Badge tourist guide and my work was acknowledged when Iwas awarded the British Empire Medal (BEM) in 2015 for services to the community in Northern Ireland.
Being born and living in Belfast is a popular point with visitors; “I love your Belfast accent.” many have said. I’ve even been asked to sing a wee Irish / Ulster song. During the heightof”TheTroubles”, I would be seen taking groups around my beloved city. Time has moved on and Belfast has seen a huge increase in visitors coming to a peaceful city. I had the pleasure of taking many of them around the city of Belfast and indeed throughout Northern Ireland when I have been asked on many occasions to guide coach parties. I believe my wealth of experience and knowledge is recognized and respected by discriminating tour operators and travel agents throughout the world. I offer coach guide services throughout Northern Ireland as well as Belfast walking tours of general interest. I also provide theme tours and can create one to suit group requests; it is never the case of one size suits all. I look forward to meeting many more visitors and promise you a real Belfast and Ulster welcome.
