Excellent tour; especially enjoyed commentary on Belfast history. Tour director was most informative!
Exceptionally good. Only 4 on the tour, really personal experience. Driver was very informative and satisfied all our wishes. I will use viator again.
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.
Y'all went all out to make sure we had our excursion. It started with our ship coming in @ 12:30p.m. instead of 8a.m. After we met our tour guide we found out that the two of us (and our guide) were the only passengers on a 54 seat bus to the Giant's Causeway. On our way to Belfast for a private Black (which was really bright red) taxi guided city tour, our guide rescued 51 passengers from a broken down "Paddy Wagon Bus". Besides being impressed with the service, our excursion sites were fantastic. We will never forget this experience.
Had a great time at the Giant Causeway. The tour was veery good and the guides were informed definitely a 5 star tour
We were met at the foot of the ship's gangway and shown to our coach. All the staff were very friendly and professional. The itinerary was switched around on account of the large number of ship excursion coaches that had already left for the Giant's Causeway, so we were taken around Belfast first with a very knowledgable tour guide (who also happened to be a black cabbie driver in Belfast) so he knew all the best route to see all the places in Belfast. Around lunchtime we transferred to a smaller coach in the centre of Belfast for the afternoon trip to the Giant's Causeway (there was only a small group of us making that part of the trip); everything was very friendly and informal. We had time to grab a quick coffee/lunch stop before departing for the Causeway. The driver was very friendly and looked after us well on the trip to and from the coast. On arrival at he Causeway he went to get our tickets for us (included in the tour). We knew exactly how much time we had, he was there waiting at the pick-up time. We were returned to our ship in good time for sail away. It was a very full, wonderful trip that was very good value for money.
One of the best excursions that we have had in over 17 cruises.
Giants Causeway well worth it. Scenery was fantastic.
Fortunately for us we were the only 2 of 4 people booked for this tour. The tour went off anyways. I have heard of tour companies cancelling if not enough people were booked.
We had the greatest tour guide "Tom" who provided us with a private tour on a Mercedes bus that could seat around 20.
Tom went out of his way to provide us all kinds of local information and lure. He provided us with all the perks plus extra sites.
Will definately use Viator on our next cruise.
Our tour guide was wonderful, he was waiting for us as soon as we came out from the ship, and he had our tour very well organized. I will recommend Viator anytime to anyone. Excellent!!
This was the best tour of our cruise. Our guide Bryan and driver Thomas were just fantastic and friendly. Very personal and interesting. Can highly recommend.
Excellent tour! Guide was awesome. This was a much better value than the tour provided by the Cruise Company.
We did enjoy this tour and found that all events of tour worked out well.
WAI LOONG NG
The scenery of Giant's Causeway is very beautiful. The weather was good during our visit. We, being hikers felt very interesting.
Transportation and guide were actually provided by Paddywagon, another agency that supposedly had no availability when I checked previously. Although Viator had made several attempts to contact us, we had our phone turned off and only discovered the change when we disembarked our ship and couldn't locate Viator so I called them while standing in front of the ship watching all the buses leave. There was no city sight seeing to this trip, as the driver simply dumped us off in Belfast in the cold rain, with nowhere to go since all the stores closed as we arrived. We had to beg him to take us back to the ship within one hour when he had planned to leave us for two hours. We absolutely overpaid for what we received.
