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.

We had an amazing day. The day is long but you get the longest drive done early in the day. From that point forward there was lots of stopping, walking and sights to see. We loved the Giants Causeway. Take the red trail first then circle back on the blue trail. Saves the hard climb up the hill after. We recommend this tour.

Amazing experience. I was a little late for the bus meet up in the morning and the tour company put me on a different bus so I could still do everything that I signed up for. Our tour guide, Kate, and bus driver, Tomas, were amazing! Kate was super informative and entertaining. Would highly recommend!!

Noel was our guide and Tomas was our driver. The tour was great! We stopped at very nice places to take pictures. As Game of Thrones fans , enjoyed visiting some places in which it was filmed. Besides that, we loved the Titanic exhibition and we had some time to take pictures in Belfast city hall.

great experience used their services second time, absolutely loved it
