I do not watch The Game of Thrones, but this trip has made me at least want to read the books! Derek, our driver/guide was inspirational from teh minute he picked us up. He was knowledgable about the programme, with first hand stories form seeing some of the stes/filming, but he also brought the Atrim Coast alive. He obviously loves his country, and by being on the trip with him, so did I! Great attention to detail, timings including booking lunch, then letting us walk round whilst it was cooked timing the Giants Causeway trip to perfecton, and finishing the day by delivering each and every one of us back to our hotels, including a station drop off for 2 guests. I have rarely had such a good day out, and such value for money. Thanks!!

This tour was awesome! I wanted something a little more history and less Hollywood, but really couldn't find anything we wanted to do not associated with GoT. We were pleasantly surprised that we were able to get both on this tour. Our driver, Patrick, was awesome! And was able to combine GoT info with some local history, so we were more than satisfied! The areas he took us to were beautiful and we stopped long enough to get some great shots. Patrick even had a couple surprises along the way! Highly recommend!

A great tour for fans of Game of Thrones and non-fans alike, I could not rate this highly enough. Ample time spent at all locations, and despite the busy itinerary it did not feel rushed. The coach was comfortable. Patrick was an absolute star, full of good humour and knowledge of the area and the show. I was well cared for as a single traveller and Patrick even had everyone sing me happy birthday!. They even stop at a GoT themed pub which does amazing food and has excellent service. We were blessed by gorgeous sunshine so I have stunning photos and fond memories running down 'kings road' in a cloak and a sword provided by the tour operator! shouting 'winter is coming' at bemused tourists. One of the best Viator tours I have ever been on.

This tour was great! Derrek knew his stuff and went out of his way to make sure everyone was happy and comfortable. Minus a few bad dad jokes this tour was very entertaining and gave an insight into not only the Game of Thrones film locations but also into some of the history of the area.

Good tour for fans of the show and non-fans alike. The locations are all scenic and well worth a look. The commentary from the driver was entertaining and informative, a mix of Local Knowledge and legends, the show and bad jokes.

Derek was an absolute star, he made this tour so memorable and enjoyable. I really enjoyed his sense of humour, even if it made other people groan!

I especially liked how he combined the local history and mythology in a manner that was both neutral and interesting- not an easy job for Northern Ireland! I appreciated the hard work that went into combining it all with the GoT landmarks we visited. The Giant's Causeway is always a lovely visit, and we got plenty of time to have a walk around Derek had sound knowledge of the area and the facilities and kept us right.

Even if the weather was a bit inclement, I still really enjoyed my trip and felt it very worth the money paid.

Give that man a raise!!!

PS. If you're viewing this, Derek, we got a house :
