Full description
Leaving central Belfast in the morning, the first stop is the Dark Hedges (around 15 - 20 minutes), known as the location where Arya Stark made her escape down The Kings Road. Journey down the tunnel-­like avenue of intertwined beech trees, and spend a few minutes at the site where Ayra Stark dressed as a boy to escape from King’s Landing.

Stop at the Giant's Causeway for around 1.5 hours to discover this UNESCO World Heritage site. Continue to the Giant's Causeway and enjoy around 1.5 hours exploring the 40,000 interlocking hexagonal stone columns formed during a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago. Admire this incredible place on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and hear the legend of Finn McCool.

Onward to Ballintoy Harbor where you will get around 1 hour to enjoy one of the favorite filming locations on this tour. Experience the scene where Theon comes home for the first time. Your guide will show you where Theon was baptised in front of Balon and Yara, and where Euron was drowned and crowned to be king. Enjoy the most beautiful harbor in Ireland as you take in the views and reflect on all the magic and mystery of Game of Thrones.

You'll also visit Larrybane Quarry, a chalk quarry which contains chert nodules, fossils, and calcite crystals. This is the place where Catelyn Stark met one of the many new kings. Go back to the Causeway coastal route to return to Belfast, and enjoy beautiful view of islands just off the coast like Rathlin Island, Sheep Island or even Scotland on a nice day.

Good day out

We picked up the tour in Belfast, the bus was 100% full from Dublin but we managed to sit close to each other. The Giants Causeway was amazing , and the commentary on the whole tour was very interesting and informative. The traditional singing from Chloe on the route - whilst she had a beautiful voice- was a bit too much for our ironic English souls. The USA trip members seemed to lap it up though so we are clearly far too cynical.. overall a good day out .

Fantastic tour. Our guide Molly was very knowledgeable about everything GoT and being an extra herself, was enthusiastic about every aspect of the tour. Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. And our driver Ian was great as well. Would absolutely recommend this to any game of thrones fans looking for a good tour of filming locations around the Belfast area. Thank both of you so much!

I booked this trip for the sole purpose of visiting Dark Hedges and it far succeeded our expectations. Our guides from Finn tours (?) can’t remember the full name. We loved the jokes, especially the goat and sheep joke. It was really nice to hear learn the full story of Ireland’s history along the route. The tour was our last activity before we left Ireland and made for a great summary and takeaway for all we had wanted to see. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions— even random ones like the type of seaweed that grows on the shores of the Aran Islands. It was also a special treat to have live entertainment (guitar/eukele and singing) while sitting on the bus. The luck of the Irish was with us on this tour, and we were pleasantly surprised with all that it included. Areas for improvement: usb charging ports in the seats to keep our phone batteries alive on the bus. ***btw we found a charging station in the bathrooms at Giants Causeway.
