What You Can Expect
After spending time admiring the rocks up close, head inside the Giant’s Causeway Visitor Experience with your guide and explore the center at leisure. Through exhibitions and galleries, the center explains the geological enigma of the site, as well as some of the more interesting myths that abound. As legend has it, the rocks were created as giant stepping-stones for the fabled Irish Giant Finn Mac Cool to cross the seas to Scotland!
Have lunch at the site (own expense), and then return to Belfast for your city sightseeing tour. As you relax in the comfort of your coach, your guide will talk you through the ups and downs of Belfast’s fascinating history. Hear of its reign as Northern Ireland’s center of industry, the decades of civil unrest, and of its current rejuvenation as a city of culture!
On a route around the downtown streets, your guide will point out several top Belfast attractions that chart key events in its history, such as the Harland and Wolff shipyard where the Titanic was built and Stormont Parliament where major peace negotiations have been brokered. See poignant political murals as you pass through the Falls and Shankill neighborhoods, and learn of the Unionist and Nationalist groups who live here – separated on different sides of the Belfast peace wall.
After seeing several of the city’s countless highlights, your coach will return to Belfast Harbour where your tour ends.

One of the Best Tours with Viator, Ever!!! Our guide, Paddy, was The Best! There were no others on our tour, so Paddy was free to take us everywhere, and everywhere he did! We traveled in Paddy's vintage 1984, bright red English Taxi. We visited the Giant's Causeway after a tour of the Harbor sites. The ride through the countryside was great, as Paddy pointed out lots of sites along the way. We traveled the back roads back toward the city and Paddy showed us many sites "off the beaten path"! Our tour through the Shankill neighborhoods and the Peace Wall were informative and enlightening. We returned to the ship after a very long day of wonderful adventure. No one on the ship saw as much as we did! A Thousand Kudos to Viator and to Paddy Geraghty, who was late for his dinner that evening!
Though the ship was late arriving, they were there on the dock with a sign and easy to spot. The guide had no heavy accent to try and translate and was very informative, We only had two couples on the small van which made it nicer than a city bus group. We reversed the order to avoid a demonstration that was to occur that late afternoon in the town. Very, very enjoyable and was returned back to the ship in time to sail off just as promised.
