This tour is an amazing deal, you get to see so much in one day for so little money. Our driver Pat was a really lovely man, and knew so much about every place we were driving through. I had such a good day, if you don't have long in Northern Ireland, do this tour as you won't regret it and it really gives you a taste for what an amazing and beautiful country ireland is. Thank you Pat!
Amazing your! Very knowledgable guide that really made the effort to give us enough time and ensure we had a good trip. The pick up locations are great and our guide Patrick has a brilliant personality. I strongly recommend it!
Truely an amazing tour. The Causeway was so beautiful. The tour was actually through McCombs. The driver was very very good. Informative and funny. Absolutely recommend.
Excellent value for money! The driver/guide, Patrick, was very knowledgeable and took great pride in, not only the history of his country but also, the geological and mythical information of the area. He never stopped talking the whole trip! Being a National Trust member, I didn't have to pay entry fees to Giant's Causeway or Carrick Ropebridge but fellow travellers seemed very pleased with the discount joint-ticket on offer. It's a shame there wasn't time for the guided tour at Bushmills Distillery but the restaurant and shop were welcome when the only bad weather of the day (a sudden downpour of rain) appeared! The weather cleared up for the Giant's Causeway and what a wonderful natural phenomena it is. The coach company picked me up at my slightly 'out-of-the-way' guest house in the Queens University area and dropped me back in the city after a very long, but enjoyable 10 hour tour! Highly recommended!
Very intense and great tour along the north coast with very good guide from the driver.
Some of the attractions were not as 'big' as expected but altogether it was a very good and rewarding trip. Highly recommended.
What a brilliant day! Our driver and guide, Patrick was fab- courteous, witty and knowledgeable. Stunning scenery, great stops-just the right amount of time, varied itinerary.Brilliant value for money
Great trip. Friendly and informative driver/guide. Plenty of time at each stop. Fantastic value for money
The costal drive is spectacular! I wished I had more eyes on my head to take it all in at once! Our guide was amusing and we had the perfect amount of time at each spot. I would recommend taking Dramamine if you have a sensitive stomach. Some of the altitudes made me feel a little ill.
Very good tour. The guide was very entertaining and the area was beautiful
The Bus driver was friendly and the tour was well worth the money. I think I could spend a whole day at the Giant's Causeway though.
This is a trip well worth considering when in Belfast. It is a full day and takes in so many attractions. You are picked up from your hotel door and taken to a central point to join a luxury coach when the day begins. Darren was the driver for the day who had a very dry sense of humour and made the entire day so informative. He commentates throughout the tour and is a wealth of knowledge. The highlights of the day are the trip to the Bushmill's Distillery. You do not have time for the tour but you stop there for lunch. The food is superb and plentiful. You can try the whiskeys through the cafe and bar and the new Bushmill's Honey is worth a try. You pay extra to go on the rope bridge and later to enter the Giants Causeway but the driver sells discounted tickets (£10) You must go on the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. It is not as scary as you may think. Though high and windy, the rope is very secure and you have confidence in the bridge. The guides from the National Trust are also very helpful. It helps if you bend your knees when crossing to stop them knocking! Then onto Giant's Causeway which is the highlight of the day. You spend two hours there so plenty of time to explore. Fascinating to see how nature has created these structures. You can climb on them so I strongly recommend a sturdy footwear. There is time for a coffee before setting for home. Pick up at 9.15 a.m. and we were dropped off at 6.30 p.m. I would highly recommend this trip as it is not only a superb day but also value for money as the price is so reasonable.
I loved the trip and would highly recommend it to anyone with a day to spend exploring the northern coast. Our guide/driver, Davie, was very informative and had a good sense of humour. I was fortunate to be on a smaller bus (16 people) instead of a large coach (50 people) which made getting off and on at the various stops more efficient. I think this was just luck though, as the same tour company had our mini-bus and 4 large coaches making the tour that day. Luckily the rain held off until the end of the day which made the hike across the rope bridge and the hike at Giant's Causeway all that much better. Those 2 stops both have an additional entrance fee, but the tour company offers a discount if you buy a combination entrance ticket through them on the bus at the start of the trip. Both stops are a part of the National Trust so if you are a member you shouldn't need to pay anything extra.
Very comprehensive tour. The narrator was well versed in the history of the north of Ireland. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.
Money well spent. Driver/Guide delivered an informative guide en-route to all of the sites throughout the tour. The unique geological formations formed from the aftermath of both the volcano and ice age environmental conditions, left a fantastic land feature. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
