Donna Fox Tours has been a registered Blue Badge Level 4 guide and a member of the Northern Ireland Tour Guide Association since 1997. She decided to follow this career after a period of travelling and working abroad which inspired her to work with visitors to her own country.
She has always had a passion for visiting locations at home and abroad therefore has channelled this natural inquisitiveness into her tours. First and foremost as a guide you have to love where you come from and to enjoy meeting people of all ages, backgrounds, interests and physical capabilities.
Donna is very aware of this in her tours to ensure that no one is left out and that we make the most of the time available even when individuals or groups have a limited itinerary due to time constraints.
Due to COVID 19 no tours are currently taking place but Donna is working towards the date when walking tours can start again with safety measure in place to ensure the health and comfort of tour participantsAvailable Tours
The tours take place throughout Northern Ireland but principally in Belfast City and the Armagh area (city and county). Tours can be on foot, as a step on guide, on a coach, with a chauffeur/taxi if requested. We have experience and a network of associates in the North Antrim Coast, Giant's Causeway, Derry City, Downpatrick and Co Tyrone.
You may ask the question is there really the need for a Tour Guide nowadays with so many downloadable apps available and with so much information at the touch of a button on your phone but they cannot give you the personal experience of your own private guide, in addition they cannot answer any immediate questions you might have during or at the end of the tour. A Tour Guide can provide humour and inspiration, you are not listening to a recording but a real person whose presentation can be adapted to the needs of the group and tour subject. You may not hear the human stories with an app but with a real living tour guide you get to live your experience. An app cannot give you the passion for a place which a local can.
Tours are on request depending on availability - early booking is recommended. Donna works with international groups, national groups,local groups whoever desires a tour can be catered for. She has experience of working with media and has featured on French TV and radio as well as being interviewed for local radio stations BBC N Ireland and U105.
