Giant's Causeway was amazing -- one of the most beautiful natural sites I've ever seen! Our guide Richard was very informative and entertaining. The black taxi tour of Belfast was fascinating, and the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge had stunning scenery. We were lucky to have great weather that day.
Amazing tour. Tara was our guide she was such a lovely young lady, so helpful and full of so much knowledge about Ireland. The Game of Throne sites were so cool, Tara even showed us clips of the scenes taken at the very locations. The Giant's Causeway is definitely a must see!
Although this is a long day, boy it was great! The bus stops at a rest and food stop about an hour after leaving Dublin. Along the way to Belfast, our guide, JP, was giving us history of Belfast, England, Protestants, Catholics and IRA. We were told on the bus that we had a choice to take the Black taxi Tour OR visit the Titanic Museum. This wasn't listed as a choice on Viator but some did decide to visit the Museum. Once in Belfast, we quickly transferred to the waiting Black Taxis 3-4 people per taxi and drivers and our adventure into the past began. Gerry, our driver, claimed he was an observer during the troubled times, 1960s on...He had friends that joined the IRA but most were killed. His description of these times, the history, were fascinating. There were things that Gerry told us about that we never heard in the US. At the end of the tour, we stopped at the Peace Wall and signed our names and left a message on the wall. We then continued to the Giant's Causeway. There is a bus that can take you down and up from the entrance to the rocks or you can walk. There are two restaurants that you can have lunch. We then continued on to the Rope Bridge. I use a walker so I didn't walk all the way to the bridge but those that did mentioned it was a little scary climbing down the ladder to the bridge. It was raining by this time, so I headed back to the tea house for some afternoon tea. It was a long drive back, we had a rest stop along the way, but it was a wonderful day.
Our entire experience on the 2-Day Northern Ireland Tour from Dublin was exceptional! Traveling between Dublin and Belfast was interesting and informative, thanks to the people who accompanied us, and the Giant's Causeway was amazing!
Fabulous! The black taxi cab drivers were great. It was a solemn experience at the Peace Wall. Giant's Causeway was beautiful.
Driver and guide were great.
This was a GREAT trip!! Such a fun, informative way to cover a lot of ground in one day. Our bus driver was funny and had a lot of good info to share. Our taxi driver was so full of great historical and personal stories and really helped us understand Belfast. The Giant's Causeway was gorgeous and the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge was AMAZING!! Everything about the day was wonderful and I highly recommend to anyone considering it. It was well worth the money and the time. :
This is a fantastic tour-starts with a train ride from Dublin to Belfast where a bus tour starts. Sean our guide was great and Patrick our bus driver was fantastic. He gave us so much history about the country up in the North of Ireland. Yes, the trip is long but so worthwhile-you see and learn so much. Our days were sunny so we explored the Giant's Causeway--this tour is well organized and it gives you plenty of time at the stops to enjoy the countryside. Highly recommended.
Fabulous trip! The bus driver was very interesting with all kinds of facts along the way. The Black Taxi Tour was one of my favorites. The driver of the taxi had lived through the troubles and was a wealth of information! The Giant's Causeway is just spectacular! Of course we had wonderful weather all over Ireland when we were there! I highly commend this tour!!
Loved this tour! The rope bridge and the giant's causeway were magnificent. Our bus was running behind schedule and the driver suggested the black cab tour in Dublin. I believe since our time was limited we did not receive the full tour since friends on another bus had a much better experience with the black cab tour. We had five taxis travelling together with the drivers taking turns speaking to all twenty-five of us at each stop location 1 driver spoke while 4 drivers socialized with each other. We also did not get to go to the prison. Actually only visited 2 social housing areas and the wall. Very disappointed in this part of the tour which was an optional add-on but our viator driver made it sound so great that we chose to do it. We would have liked more sightseeing in Belfast.

Love it. Went on this tour with my 2 teenagers, aged 14 and 16. Titanic experience was literally the BEST tour I've ever gone on - ever.
Giant's Causeway...so worth it. The bridge is the most fun, but a really challenging climb! If you're afraid of heights, best to skip it.
The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because it was too long. It lasted over 13 hours. We stopped like 3 times, and once for gas - around 30 minutes. Didn't need to stop at all. I mean, just do it before you pick us up! Also, there is NO stop between 5 and 8PM...so if you haven't gotten food and stored it in your bag you're screwed.
It was really amazing and I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
I was so pleased to be able to have the opportunity to visit the Giant's Causeway. The booking was very easy to do. Our coach driver was a delight and so knowledgeable about the area. I'm glad I did not miss this amazing UNESCO site.

We opted to do the Titanic exhibition in lieu of the black taxi tour and had an incredible time! Fabulous exhibition! Giant's Causeway was so beautiful! We were bummed that the weather prevented us from doing the rope bridge, but our guides took us to the Bushmills Distillery instead which was great! Our guides were so funny and worked very well together! This tour is definitely worth the money! We got a lot of bang for our buck!
Great way to see some of the best sites of Northern Ireland in a short time frame! The tour bus is small and comfortable unlike some of the larger more cramped buses, and because the group is smaller the tour is a lot more personable. I loved that as an added bonus for Game of Thrones fans there is a stop at the Dark Hedges and Dunluce Castle and for whiskey fans a quick stop at Bushmills, shot included! These stops were unique to this tour compared to other similar tours to the Giant's Causeway and the Rope Bridge from Dublin, and the reason I risked choosing this one instead of the much more reviewed tours. It was absolutely worth the risk! There was even a rainbow at the end of the walk through the Dark Hedges, and although I can't guarantee that'll happen in subsequent tours, I can guarantee you'll have a great time on this tour!
This was a fantastic tour! The tour guides were so kind and extremely knowledgeable about Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Titanic Museum was fascinating - I only wish we would have had more time there. Giant's Causeway was very neat to see. Unfortunately, due to the wind that day, we were unable to go across the bridge, but our guides did a great job of improvising and took us to a distillery and drove us along the coastline to make up for not being able to go to the bridge. The views were breathtaking! This is the perfect day trip and I would highly recommend it!
This trip was amazing. The Black Taxi Tour of Belfast was both informative and compelling. Despite it being February we had warm, sunny weather that day. I was thrilled by the Giant's Causeway as it was more beautiful than I had imagined. Thanks Viator for putting together such a great itinerary!
Long day, but a fun tour. William was funny, and had everything running on time. He was a great guide. He also organized the trip so that we maximized time when it wasn't raining at the Giant's Causeway, and got us a good time slot at the bridge so there wasn't really a wait. I would totally do this tour again.
This tour was well worth our money. Henry was a fantastic driver and tour guide. Gotta give him a high five for driving a bus on the small Ireland roads all while trying to explain the history behind each site we went to. There was never a dull moment during the tour because Henry kept us entertained. We absolutely loved how the tour guide added a few extra stops into the itinerary. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour. My only suggestion for improvement is the restaurant we stopped at. Yes, the food was cheaper then most places but my food was cold I think it sat to long in the pan at the buffet table. I like how Henry mentioned he order sunshine at 1pm for the Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-rede bridge. Thought it was funny how it was raining but as soon as we arrived to the bridge it was sunshine. Great tour. Thank you for starting my adventure in Ireland on a good note.
This tour was fun. I didn't plan on crossing the Carrick-a-Rede bridge because we have two small children. But we did it! The view at this spot was very pretty. I would have liked about 30 more minutes at Giant's Causeway. And it definitely wasn't near enough time in Belfast. For lunch we stopped at a place called The Barn. It wasn't kid friendly food. Overall, it was a good experience and I'm glad we did it.

The weather was against us as storm Henry was in full force on the shores of the Giant's Causeway. Despite strong winds, the place is stunning. Instead of visiting Titanic Visitor Experience, I took the black taxi tour in Belfast, which revealed to be a great city tour, with our driver Tom telling the story of the long living conflict between catholics and protestants to this day. JP, Wild Rovers tour guide, made all the difference in this tour by telling us lots of information about Irish history.

Wonderful tour. This tour will give you history and country side all in one day.
The black taxi tour was simply wonderful, it gives you a real perspective of what actually happened as all black taxi tour guides lived during this time and will tell you what they experienced. The giant's causeway is absolutely beautiful.
If you are considering this tour, do it!! You wont regret it.
The Giant's Causeway is a breath taking view even though the weather that day was rather severe. The taxi drivers also gave us a brief heartfelt talk on the history of Belfast. It's a trip worth going regardless of the weather :
Great mix of history in Belfast and great outdoors at Giant's Causeway!
Really enjoyed this tour. It makes for a long day, but is worth it if you are short on time, based out of Dublin, and want the opportunity to learn about Belfast and see Giant's Causeway. The rope walk was fun and there were great coastline views there. Our favorite part of tour was the Black Taxi Tour in Belfast very informative! The Giant's Causeway was beautiful, even with the December Ireland weather! Our guide, Yoan, and driver, John, were fantastic!

Amazing tour.... The Belfast Black Taxi Tour was great. Our taxi driver knew everything and we got to take lots of photos of the murals and actually take the time to understand the history behind each mural. The Carrick-a-Rede bridge was a lot of fun, just a shame you get held up by tourists indecision to cross or not, which eats into your time to explore more of the coast line and we were able to see Scotland in the distance. The giant's causeway was smaller than I expected, but still a very unusual formation of rocks to see. Reminded me of Superman and his crystal cave, if anyone knows this reference. Overall the tour was great and we got to see a lot in the time provided to us.
