About Us

As a new business, we feel that potential clients need confidence in our credentials and professionalism before booking, as NITOUR is simply too young a business to have feedback on TripAdvisor, Facebook or Viator yet.  That's why it's important to provide this assurance by sharing the principal's background & career experience prior to opening this new business in November 2017.  

Your Driver

  • Steven's LinkedIn professional profile is here www.linkedin.com/in/collistersteven.  He has a BSc (Hons) Accounting degree, and a MBA, both from Queen's University, Belfast.  He spent 25 years in corporate banking with two local banks here and he has recently taken early retirement.  His background makes him uniquely placed to offer certain services to corporate clients, by being able to provide custom business tours for their customers & suppliers visiting Northern Ireland.  Discretion & professionalism are assured at all times.

  • Steven has held a full clean driving licence for over 30 years and has recently passed the new Taxi Driver Licensing test with the Driver & Vehicle Agency (NI) which was introduced in 2016.  This is one of the most stringent tests administered by a local authority within the UK for public & private hire.  It also includes an enhanced security check, as well as a full medical assessment, for your peace of mind.  He is also undertaking an advanced driving course with the Institute of Advanced Motorists in Northern Ireland to further enhance his driving skills.

  • With respect to the tourist experience, Steven completed the Level 2 Tour Guiding Certificate at Belfast Metropolitan College in January 2018 for walking tours and is a member of Tour Guides NI for your assurance. WorldHost® training courses 'Ambassador Workshop' & 'Principles of Customer Service' were completed in February 2018, with 'Cultural Awareness in Customer Service' & 'Meeting the requirements of customers with specific needs' completed in March 2018. 

  • For all Corporate & 'Special Occasion' bookings he will be presented in a dark business suit (note: grey and navy are also available for weddings).  Due to the amount of walking & terrain with tourist bookings, smart comfortable attire will be worn.

Your Vehicle
