Fantastic. Well worth the drive. Guide was excellent
Our Bus Driver/Tour Guide, Joe, made the trip exciting with his humour and his knowledge of Belfast and surrounding area. We travelled in a 15 passenger van and enjoyed his banter.
If you get a chance to see Belfast City Hall take it! What an exquisite building. We were able to see some of the results of "The Troubles" in the height of the fences that are still everywhere. There was graffiti on the 20 ft high fences. Some in honour of fallen Northern Ireland heroes and some asking for continued peace. The Irish National Museum will leave you gob-smacked. I wanted a couple more hours to go through it in more depth.
There is a very distinct difference in the speech between Dublin and Belfast. It is much like the differences in speech between Ontario and the East Coast or mid US and Boston.
Both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are extremely welcoming and friendly.
Loved our tour guy Bud! GREAT GREAT GREAT! Really knew his history. Loved seeing the difference between the two regions of Ireland. Great day! Worth the trip!
This was truly one of the highlights of the trip to Ireland. We were most fortunate to have enjoyed the company of the most experienced and knowledgeable tourist guide. His knowledge and articulation of the history of Ireland was truly inspiring.
The tour was great. Not too impressed with this tour guide from Extreme Ireland compared to the others we had. He was not really able to answer many of our questions. Wasn't even able to suggest a nice place to have lunch. Nice, yes, but not great.
We ended upon a different tour since there wrong enough people. The Celtic tour was AMAZING just be prepared for a hike at one of the stops. Every stop was amazing and you get to see beautiful views of town. The Crltic tour is a MUST!!!
Such a great day! Our driver Gabe was very nice and incredibly funny, and Belfast was a very interesting place to see - just like the stops along the way. It was long and exhausting, but definitely worth it!
It was a great experience travelling in a small group and visiting very interesting places on route such as Downpatrick, the burial place of St Patrick.
Our driver/guide Mark was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
A great day-out!
I had a really awesome tour guide, totally worth it! We learned SO much and had such a unique experience. We definitely fit in quite a lot of sights in just a little while. I would definitely recommend this tour.
The driver was very informative and provided much more of a feel for the North than just statistics and the usual bits and pieces that find there way into the typical tourist guide.
The trip was phenomenal.From South to North ,Ireland is truly a majestic isle! The tour guide was great,courteous and knowledgable,he went out of his way to extend our time in the Belfast Titanic Museum.We saw the Republican Museum which was a very moving depiction of the struggles and sacrifices of the Irish people for natoinal unity,pride and self respect that all peoples are entitled to by birthright and character,
Belfast was a fascinating city ,rich in culture ,superb architecture of historical importance .We love the Titanic Museum and were thrilled to see the actual docks where the great unsinkable ship hulled and the buildings where the original architects and engineers actually planned and designed the plans for the ship in April ,1911.
Good Irish hospitality and great food and shopping.Well worth the visit !
Outstanding tour. Our guide (Colm) was knowledgeable, informative, and entertaining. The length of the tour is about right. The small group size (~10) permits easy interchange among other guests and the guide. One might consider dropping the stop-of at the Titanic museum in Belfast unless you factor in some actual time to visit the museum.
Our guide, Jim, was phenomenal. Told stories in the best Irish story-telling way. He was the best guide we've ever had and shared so much information! He made the trip informational and entertaining! Thank you for Jim!!
Excellent guide and very informative intinerary. Strongly recommend this tour.
Excellent trip. Our guide Eddie was very helpful and the places visited were interesting. Would recommend this trip to others.
Cat was a fantastic guide! He was very knowledgable and entertaining. I learned so much from Cat. Can't recommend it enough.
Had a good time. wanted to spend more time in Belfast. The drive is about 2.5 hours each way. The guide did a great job talking about the conflict. Would go again but maybe a 2 day tour to cut down on the drive time.
This tour was awesome - our guide was wonderful and really knowledgeable.
Wonderful day, tour guide had great information on the history of Northern Ireland!
Very interesting and informative. Patrick shared a lot of his knowledge of Irish culture and history. The HOHO in Belfast which was included also was very informative and we toured the entire city.
Fabulous day trip from Dublin. It was a lovely small group with a very Irish Guide who was both interesting and fun and made the trip very enjoyable.
