This was our best day in Belfast. We were picked up from our hotel in a smaller coach and transferred round the corner to meet the rest of the party and our larger coach for the day. Our guide Phillip was absolutely fantastic, a font of knowledge, not only about every aspect of Games Of Thrones but also about the history of Northern Ireland. Considering it was quite a long journey to the first stop (1.5 hrs) the time flew by and Philip was giving us information the entire time. We even got a brief glimpse of some filming actually going on from the coach window, which we were told was quite unusual for a Saturday. We were given plenty of time at each stop on the tour and Phillip even played the clips from the series that were filmed at each location we stopped at. There is quite a lot of walking involved to reach some of the locations but if I can do it then anyone can :) The coach driver (also called Phillip) was excellent, I normally suffer from travel sickness but even with some of the winding roads, I was fine. A huge thank you to Phillip the guide and Phillip the driver for a fantastic day out. I would highly recommend this to anyone, even if you've never seen Game of Thrones, this tour is worth it for the scenery alone.
This tour was brilliant, the guide was really friendly and knowledgeable. Saw loads of sights and interesting places, definitely worth it.
Great tour our guide was such a good story teller really enjoyed the whole day
The guide was fantastic and very knowledgable. He was a great story teller.
I took the Game of Thrones tour early September 2014 and it was an amazing experience. Derek, our tour guide, was amazing! He really made the tour worthwhile and he made the day what it was, exceptional! Derek went above and beyond of the standard for this tour by throwing in a few additional sites and stops along the way, as well as additional history of the area.
I would totally recommend this tour to anyone and you do not need to be a Game of Thrones fan.
This was a great day out, we saw so much it was well worth the money. Our tour guide was very well versed in both Irish History and Game of Thrones itself. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
It was a great tour. I'm glad I did it with my two daughters. They enjoyed and loved it. Derek our tour commentator was great. He's amazing and funny which you need when you're on the road. We just loved the tour. Belfast is a lovely place to visit,lovely and nice people. I would recommend .
Wonderful day with an entertaining dialogue from our awesome driver and guide Derek. Highly recommend not just for the Game of Thrones scenes, but also the beautiful country that you get see along the way. More than just a bus ride through the country the commentary and humorous stories (some real, some myth) makes for an awesome day. The video clips from the series showing each location that we stop at were a great touch.
Our tour guide Dereck was knowledgable and entertaining. You could tell he knew the history of the land and he also had a good sense of humor to keep us entertained on the stretches between sites. He was very good. The content of the tour was great as well. Anyone who likes Game of Thrones would like this as well. Our guide would show us a video clip of a location when we got there so we could really tell which scenes to go back and watch again at home. I find myself watching the background scenery in the show just to see if there is something I will recognize!
Lots of exciting locations. Great commentary from the tour guide. A great day out.
A sensational tour. You don't have to know anything about the Game of Thrones to do this tour. We have started watching since we returned home. The secenery is exceptional. It is one of the best tours...no, the best tour I have ever done. Our driver/tour guide Patrick, was fantastic.
Went on this tour for my partners birthday because he's such a fan of the show. It was absolutely great! Our guide was amazing and we got to know so many different places and random bits of information about filming and the sets.
We had Philip and he is so knowledgeable about both the series and the book, so could provide great insight. I also enjoyed how he interwove the legends of the area into what happened in the book. We stopped at about five locations from the first two seasons and had plenty of time to look around. The only negative was that he didn't enforce the time allotted at each stop, so often there was one family that slowed us down.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Philip the guide was superb! A well informed, enthusiast, he had lots of stories to tell in a clear manner. He also had film clips uploaded on his tablet with an amplifier so we could hear and see the scenes in context! Fabulous! We covered a lot of ground on this tour, but never felt rushed. The driver Paul was very calm and considerate. As a non-enthusiast accompanying a self-confessed nuGame of Thrones nut, I didn't expect to enjoy it so much. This was totally down to the well organised professionalism of the guide who understood the needs of a very diverse group of people. I thoroughly recommend it!
