What people are saying about Bushmills

This tour was fantastic. We packed in so much in one day, which was wonderful. Our tour guide Tony was upbeat, fun and informative. His commentary was paced perfectly, and gave enough information to keep things enteresting but not so much you get overwhelmed. I loved everything I learned! He also kept us on track without ever making us feel rushed. And of course our driver Thomas was wonderful. Again, I never felt rushed and always felt safe. It’s a great value for the price, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Great way of seeing many of the beautiful sites of Northern Ireland and also learning some facts about the history of them! Our driver, Patrick, was an incredible guide. We always had enough time at all the sites and I would highly recommend having lunch at the pub in Ballintoy! We also went to see some more sites that weren't included in the original itinerary which was grand. Would do again!

We had a wonderful day exploring the Northern Irish countryside and Giants Causeway. Our driver Patrick was an excellent guide as well as a safe driver, he was friendly and gave us lots of information about the local areas and a little game of thrones info for good measure.

We went with McCombs on this trip and everything ran like clockwork. A great day from start to finish with so much to see and learn. Luckily we had a dry day and great visibility. Steve our driver and guide was fantastic. A fount of knowledge and a great laugh as well

Great guide, very knowledgeable. Well planned, organised. 2 hours at Giant's Causeway is perfect.
