We had a fabulous time! The tour guide was informative and friendly! The views were breathtaking!
Fantastic ! Great drive/guide....Very knowledgeable in geography history etc. And a wonderful sense of humor.
Comfortable bus with a good audio system. Length of time was reasonable for the distance and all we saw. The Coast of Antrum was breathtaking, the Rope Bridge a great hike and fun experience and the Giant's Causeway was awesome. Our bus driver/tour leader/friend and ally was MAC. He deserves a ten star rating. He was sensitive to the needs of the travelers and his commentary was interesting and meaningful. We had Irish sunshine which put frosting all over the shamrock.

Great experience and lovely landscape. Our guide was really good his name could be Bud, but I am not sure,nice and funny too. We had a great time! Thanks!
Our tour guide, Jennifer, was an excellent story teller and historian, so we were very pleased with her.
tour was great. Value for the money. Bus driver tour guide, Jim McArdle was wonderful . Made the whole day.
Coming back for sure, ireland is beautiful but this tour was fantastic. sure i would love to spend hours at the causeway but its enough time to go down the long way sit and take in the scenery...also take pics. and walk up the long way. its a workout but its worth every minute of it
The bus tour brought us to many different scenic places. The driver who also acted as the guide told us quite a lot of information on Ireland and Belfast.
I and my friends enjoyed very much the trip.
Giant's Causeway day trip was great, our guide Shane was amazing and funny. Our 1st stop was Carrick-a-Rede which is about 1 km walk to reach the rope bridge. The bridge holds up to 8 people at the same time. The path is not easy and you have to be in good shape to do it. There are so many magnificent views and breathtaking landscapes to admire. You stay there for around 1 hour and 1/2.Then after that we were taken to a retaurant called Fullerton Arms - Prices were acceptable, food was ok - service was a bit slow. After lunch which was also about 1 hour or so, we went for the peak of this trip the Giant's causeway.It is unbelievably beautiful. You do not need an audio guide to admire and enjoy this amazing natural site. Once you are at the top you can use a Bus to take you down the cliff or when you want to return for 1 Pound or 1.3 Euro it takes you about 15-20 minutes walk to the stones. Once there enjoy and take your time to explore/walk around the place. Pictures cannot express how gorgeous the place is. You stay for around 1 hour and 1/2 there. Last, heading back to Dublin you stop for 1 hour in Belfast - at this stop you can't see much except the City Hall and maybe have a coffee.
Highly recommended as a tour!
Loved this trip! would highly recommend to anybody who has a spare day in Dublin. It is a long journey but the beautiful views and countryside are worth it! the Giants causeway was a great thing to see and the Carrick a reke bridge is located in a beautiful spot, well worth the walk! We had Jim as a driver who was full of great stories, jokes and facts about the places we travelled through.

This day trip is definitely worth your time and money. Mary was our tour guide and she was very friendly and knowledgeable. She told us about the history of Belfast, the legend behind the Giant's causeway, and played Irish music along the ride whenever appropriate. Breathtaking views and overall an amazing experience
The tour guide was excellent! This tour was one of my favorite experiences in Ireland.
This is a must do while visiting Ireland. Yes you leave incredibly early, and come back later in the evening. But it is worth it. The Tour operator really made the country and its history come alive for us. I had a vague understanding the struggles of Ireland but going from Dublin to Belfast you really understand how the country is separated and still working through the problems. Next the countryside is some of the most breath taking in Europe. Going to the Giant's Causeway and hearing the story of the Giants and also the geological perspective is really neat. It is a great day.
Perfection! Mother's nature perfection that is. The driver was very kind, almost too kind. We were waiting on a a young passenger for 10 and 20 minutes at two dirrerent stops. I understand the driver didn't want to leave anybody behind, but I paid the same money the other passenger did and he got 15 extra minutes in one site and 20 minutes in the other. Departure time should be strictly followed. The passenged did not even apologize.
wife and daughter loved it, tour guide/bus driver so nice and professiona
sensational trip, many thanks

This is a big tour - 54 on our bus - and doesn't allow for a lot of time at each stop. The Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge stop is about an hour, which is fairly aggressive considering the terrain to reach the rope bridge. Our lunch stop at the Fullerton Arms was a disaster, we'd have been better off finding a cafe or something nearby and meeting back up with our group, but our guide Gabriel was entertaining and kept us on schedule. I was disappointed in the Belfast stop - 1 hour around 17:00 wasn't really enough time to do anything except walk around the square where the bus parks or have a coffee. Given the lack of time in Belfast I would rather have just gone back to Dublin a bit earlier.
Even though it rained for the rope bridge walk, which is a wonderful experience, it cleared when we reached the Gisnt's Causeway. Such beauty is not to be missed!
Would recommend this trip to everyone. Colm our driver/guide was very knowledgeable and made it a very enjoyable day.
Positively lovely and our driver and guide, David, was very interesting and funny as well. What else would one expect from an Irishman!
The rope bridge is a must and you should definitely take the time to walk around Belfast.
This was an excellent day trip and we saw so much scenic beauty. The Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge was in an unexpectedly stunning area of the coast with bright green cliffs. The Giant's Causeway was also very cool and I felt like I was right in the middle of a Game of Thrones episode.
