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!!!

This tour was absolutely awesome we really enjoyed it. There were a lot of stops and the drive was stunning. Our guide and driver Derek was so fun and knowledgeable, he showed us clips from GoT at some of the locations which was a great touch - thank you Derek! Really enjoyed your company!
Great way to see a couple of the filming sets for Game Of Thrones, and even if you're not a fan of the show, it is a great way to see County Antrim and visit the Giant's Causeway. The tour was a well spend day and the tour guide Derick was brilliant,a really nice and funny man with a good knowledge of the area and the filming sets.
The tour was fantastic, our guide Derek, seemed to love what he does, he made us laugh the whole journey and was very helpful explaining all the tour locations. We saw breathtaking views and enjoyed every part of the tour.
Our tour guide, Patrick, was a delight to be with! Very funny and accommodating! Despite the rather gloomy weather the film locations looked fantastic, we stopped by at beautiful places really worth seeing!!!
Thanks for the nice day Patrick!
I had a great time on this trip being a game of thrones fan. our guide derrick did a great job and i learned a lot about the scenery that we saw and I am so glad I did this tour. I would take this tour again just to learn more about the people in the area and Belfast is a great city!
Amazing! Everything amazing.
Breathtaking views. Really worth!
The tour was entertaining and informative and I would recommend it whether you are a Game of Thrones fan or not.
This is one of the best tours I've ever been on. Our guide was amazing and well informed on all the sites and was a huge Game of Thrones Fan! Note, you do not need to be a Game of Thrones fan, or even know what Game of Thrones is, to appreciate this tour. The sites were beautiful and anyone would enjoy this trip. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
The tour was amazing, beautiful places and the guide guy is really funny.
I really enjoyed this tour. Even if I was not a fan, the scenery was stunning and the tour guide was excellent in imparting knowledge of all the locations to do with the show and the history of Ireland and even the geography. The tour guide was fun, he had a dry sense of humour and was very helpful.
The Giants Causeway was amazing, and I enjoyed seeing the harbour where Theon Grayjoy arrived to the Iron Islands. I liked how the tour guide showed us clips of the scenes on his tablet so we could gage where we were.
All in all, brilliant, and October was a great time to go, we luckily had great weather and it was quite quiet so we could get clear photos without a shed load of tourists!

This tour was the highlight of my trip to Northern Ireland. Not only did we spend time visiting some great locations along the stunning County Antrim coast such as the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the Giant's Causeway, but I also really enjoyed visiting some of the Game of Thrones locations like the Cushendon Caves, Ballintoy Harbour and the Dark Hedges. A special thanks to our tour guide Derek for being great company, and who is a big fan of the TV show as well.
this tour made my trip to belfast worth while i have never seen an episode of game of thrones but now i will have to start watching our driver was very knoledgeable but told lousy jokes the whole trip had lovely scenery along the coast we had severall stops on the way and he also showed us some film location from the tv series of sons of anarchy one warning though there is lots of walking so if your not fit u will be after this trip
I loved every part of this tour. Sean was a great tour guide and let us spend an adequate amount of time at each attraction. He gave great history and entertained the group well. I especially loved seeing the Dark Forest, Giant's Causeway and the cave. We spent a total of 18 days touring Ireland and I would rate this tour my favorite day. I highly recommend to everyone!!!
I have never watched an episode of Game of Thrones, but it was so breathtaking to see the places in the series. It doesn't matter if you're a fan or not, the scenery is worth every penny!
Excellent tour by Mccombs. Our tour guide was Derrick - very humorous/entertaining guide - kept us well entertained in the bus. I've never watched the TV series but know somethings about it. Even not really knowing anything at all about the book or TV series - the tour is amazing. Incredibly scenic coastal drive, and each stops were amazing. One thing to note - many of the stops - you need to walk a bit to enjoy - so just keep that min mind. You can obviously decide not to walk - but you'll miss out.
Derrick is awesome - he customized the trip a bit, cutting out long break for lunch, so we can actually visit more places. Also he kept us entertained during the entire journey - which made it an amazing tour. Definitely a must do if you go to belfast.
Fantastic trip. The guide Derek was brilliant - full of energy and information. We saw some beautiful scenery as well as the advertised locations and were even able to do the Carrick a rede rope bridge. Great for GOT fans but much more to the trip than just these locations.
