Excellent experience! Black taxi tour was informative and balanced. Giant's Causeway and the Rope Bridge at Carrick-a-Rede was a jaw-dropper!!
Wonderful scenery at Giant's Causeway and the rope bridge is a lot of fun and also a beautiful little walk to get to the bridge. The black taxi tour is really informative and interesting.
Great tour and guides. Loved the Black Taxi Tour-very interesting our driver was amazing! Giant's Causeway and bridge were beautiful.
I thoroughly enjoyed this day trip from Dublin. Our guide gave us an excellent insight into Irish life and history. The taxi ride through Belfast highlighted many of this troubled city's past. The Giant's Causeway was spectacular and the weather was kind. Altogether an experience I would recommend to anyone visiting Ireland.
Giant's Causeway day trip was great, our guide Shane was amazing and funny. Our 1st stop was Carrick-a-Rede which is about 1 km walk to reach the rope bridge. The bridge holds up to 8 people at the same time. The path is not easy and you have to be in good shape to do it. There are so many magnificent views and breathtaking landscapes to admire. You stay there for around 1 hour and 1/2.Then after that we were taken to a retaurant called Fullerton Arms - Prices were acceptable, food was ok - service was a bit slow. After lunch which was also about 1 hour or so, we went for the peak of this trip the Giant's causeway.It is unbelievably beautiful. You do not need an audio guide to admire and enjoy this amazing natural site. Once you are at the top you can use a Bus to take you down the cliff or when you want to return for 1 Pound or 1.3 Euro it takes you about 15-20 minutes walk to the stones. Once there enjoy and take your time to explore/walk around the place. Pictures cannot express how gorgeous the place is. You stay for around 1 hour and 1/2 there. Last, heading back to Dublin you stop for 1 hour in Belfast - at this stop you can't see much except the City Hall and maybe have a coffee.
Highly recommended as a tour!

Belfast,the Giant's Causeway, and the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge were awesome. The Giant's Causeway is a must-see.
Politics and gorgeous scenery combine for a wonderful, but long, day trip. The Belfast Black Taxi tour was informative, fun, and fascinating. The Giant's Causeway is not to be missed. Spectacular. Take the shuttle though, the walk will kill you!!! The pub had good food, but the current exchange rate of euro to pound made it a very expensive lunch. Kevin the tour guide had Irish history degrees and regaled us with legends, myths, facts at least I think so and stories. Good trip!!!
So beautiful, it was a great day and one of my favorite memories of my trip. Giant's Causeway and the Rope bridge were just what I was hoping to get out of my trip. The history of Belfast and its conflict was fascinating. The only thing I would like to improve is that we get a little closer view to the Dunluce Castle.
The Antrim coast, Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge and Giant's Causeway was breathtaking. What a beautiful place. The train ride was nice but make sure you eat before getting on the train as they had no real breakfast food. We were escorted to the coach that took us up the Antrim coast and I just want to compliment the bus driver/tour guide for such a fantastic job. I believe his name was John and he was so knowledgeable about the history of Belfast and northern Ireland and all the hot spots along the way i.e. Game of Thrones etc. We were supposed to return to Dublin via train but the train was cancelled. The representative for the train, Brian told us that there would be a coach taking us home. However, no coach ever showed and we were stuck at the bus/train station for over an hour. Brian had to buy tickets for everyone on a public bus just to get us home the same day. We arrived home after 11:00pm and had not eaten since noon time. Not a very good way to end the day. This tour is fantastic but trying to fit this into one day is extremely difficult when there is a coordination problem like we experienced. Brian did his best but he did not seem to be getting any cooperation from the company that was supposed to supply the coach. They just simply did not show up. Great job Brian for finally getting us home.
This is a must do while visiting Ireland. Yes you leave incredibly early, and come back later in the evening. But it is worth it. The Tour operator really made the country and its history come alive for us. I had a vague understanding the struggles of Ireland but going from Dublin to Belfast you really understand how the country is separated and still working through the problems. Next the countryside is some of the most breath taking in Europe. Going to the Giant's Causeway and hearing the story of the Giants and also the geological perspective is really neat. It is a great day.

This day trip is definitely worth your time and money. Mary was our tour guide and she was very friendly and knowledgeable. She told us about the history of Belfast, the legend behind the Giant's causeway, and played Irish music along the ride whenever appropriate. Breathtaking views and overall an amazing experience

Fantastic tour! There is a lot of walking, climbing type activities during this tour. If you are fairly active, it's no problem. If you have limited mobility, this would be a challenging day for you.
The tour guide was informative and she had lots of information about the history of Northern Ireland.
I absolutely loved the Giant's Causeway. I have seen lots of photos, but once you are actually standing there, it's surreal.
Great tour! Jim was a good and informative guide. The titanic exhibition was great although we didn't have enough time to complete it. There are lots of walking to the Giant's Causeway and to the Carrick-a-rede bridge but all worth the trek! All 3 places were crowded but you will still get to enjoy your time there
Tom was great as our tour guide for the Black Taxi tour. I found a lot of the bus ride to be a bit boring the history was interesting, but the delivery was a bit boring. The Black Taxi tour was the highlight. Giant's Causeway was beautiful.
The tour guides where very knowlegable and good. I just thought the Giant's Causeway not very interesting or amazing. The trains ran on perfect time and were very clean.
Very interesting. Guides were knowledgable and the taxi driver was able to give interesting insight into the situation in Belfast he was quite entertaining. Giant's Causeway was really amazing. The trek to the rope bridge is a real hike, but it was beautiful and well worth it.
Great tour. Belfast, the Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede are well worth visiting. Note that you get less time at each stop then listed on the itinerary. Highly recommend the Belfast black taxi tour. Would have been helpful for guide to provide more info on lunch options at the Giant's Causeway. The one hour stop at Carrick-a-Rede is barely enough time to walk to bridge, cross, take a few photos and return.
The Belfast black taxi tour was excellent! Highly recommended. It was fascinating to hear the history. Northern Ireland is gorgeous and the views are fantastic, but Giant's Causeway is not an attraction I would recommend.
The tour guides were excellent and the bus was comfortable. Definitely pack a lunch/snacks etc. Stops were few and choices were limited.
The tour was great, I really enjoyed it! I loved Giant's Causeway and the Rope bridge for the beautiful views of Ireland's landscape, it was absolutely stunning. I could of spent even more time at both of these spots just walking along the coast and taking in the views. The route alone the coast from the Causeway to the bridge was also stunning. I would recommend spending more time at Dunlace Castle and going into the castle versus just taking a photo from afar, but I do understand the time restrictions with so many stops during the day. I really enjoyed the black taxi tour as I learned a lot about Northern Ireland and Belfast that I had no idea about. I also liked that we ended the black taxi tour at the shipping docks, so that even though I didn't chose that option, I still got to see and take a picture where the titanic was built. Our tour guide JP was great, he was fun, upbeat and outgoing and you could tell he definitely enjoyed what he was doing. He was very informative and knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend him to anyone else.
From start to finish, this tour was brilliant! The tour guide Rob was very engaging throughout the day and the views by the Giant's Causeway and the Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge were second to none - absolutely stunning!
Siofra was an exceptional guide for the tour to Northern Ireland. She has a passion for Irish history, culture and life. The ride to Belfast was comfortable and relaxing thanks to our driver, Richard. I learned so much on the Black Taxi Tour. The guide/driver Brian? lived through The Troubles and provided a unique perspective of life in Belfast experienced at that time. During the ride to each activity Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, Dark Hedges Siofra explained the significance of what we were about to see or experience and answered questions with wit, humor and a wealth of knowledge. I feel that my excursion to Northern Ireland could not have been any more enjoyable, unless we'd been able to stop at the Bushmills Distillery as we passed.
This was by far all of our favorite tour! It was a lengthy drive up to Belfast from Dublin, but our driver was very entertaining and highly informative as to the history as well as the sites we passed. The Black Taxi part of our tour was the absolute best! We learned so much of Belfast's turbulent recent history and so enjoyed hearing stories represented at the wall. The Giant's Causeway was fascinating and such a picturesque area. It was a very full day but certainly worth it!
Wonderful day trip. We could have had more time at the Titanic Museum because it is excellent and there is so much to see. The Giant's Causeway was even more amazing than the photos.
Great tour, especially the Black Taxi Tour of Belfast. Giant's Causeway beautiful. Guide was knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend.
Amazing tour!! Although it seems like it would be a really long day it flew by and was planned out perfectly. Our tour guide was excellent and we learned so much history! Giant's Causeway is an extraordinary sight to see!!
