Billy is a fully qualified Blue Badge guide, a member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding & TGNI. He was born in Belfast and has lived here all his life. Billy is the longest serving tour guide in Belfast. He created a wide range of themed walking tours and prides himself in providing a tour to suit the interests of a particular group. During the height of the 'Belfast Troubles' he would be seen taking groups around his beloved city. Time has moved on and Billy is no longer doing tours on his own and many more guides are available today, but Billy is still in great demand guiding on coaches and walking tours and he was the obvious choice to be a guide on Voice Map.
