A long journey but our driver, Colin, was awesome. He gave us history lessons, told jokes and played some Irish tunes. The Causeway itself was a sight to behold and I loved the folklore describing how it came to be named for giants.
Highly recommended. Our guide, Bud, was extremely accommodating and patient. Not only did he solicit input from the group about specific sights they may want to see, but he also made sure that everyone was comfortable.
This was probably the best excursion of our holiday ...... great attractions, beautiful scenery !!
The Giants Causeway day trip was spectacular. Our guide and driver Jim, was very well versed in Irish history and kept us well informed of it. He was very well spoken as well. It is a long day tour, starting at 6.30 am and ending around 6.00 pm. We had sufficient time to see the sights, i.e. The Rope Bridge, the Giants Causeway and the stopover in Belfast on the way back. Without a doubt, the Giants Causeway is the highlight of the trip, definitely worth seeing.
Beautiful countryside and our tour guide was very entertaining.
Long day but worth it! Great bus driver very informative and funny!
Excellent!!!!!! Must do! The natural beauty of Ireland is much better to be seen in person than in photos.
Enjoyed trip. Rope bridge was fantastic. Enjoyed short visit to Belfast. Long day.
This was a wonderful trip and one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. The day started early and it was a full day. The schedule was really tight but our driver, Eddie, did his best to keep us on schedule. There really wasn't a proper time to eat so you had to balance your time at a site with making time to eat something. There are plenty of chances but it's at the cost of cutting viewing time. It would be nice to have a proper meal like some other tours I've been on. That might be at the cost of cutting out a stop or having a longer day. Overall, it went smoothly and we had a nice time at all the stops. A longer stop in Belfast may have been nice to see more of it but that was the end of the tour and by then we were playing catch up on time. Maybe it needs to be built in to the tour. Highly recommend seeing Giant's Causeway and the Northern Ireland coast. It was beautiful. Expect a full day of travel though.
Although it was a long bus ride, there were very frequent stops that made it fly by. We were actually gone from 6:30 am until almost 7:30 pm. 13 hours! I think our tour guide could have given more information about the history and sights, but he did give some. I am most thankful to Viator for arranging a Black Cab Tour in Belfast for 4 of us at 40 pounds for the car. It is normally a 1 hour 45 min tour, but our guide was agreeable to give us the 1 hour tour because that was all the time we had in Belfast. He was ready and waiting for us at the downtown stop in Belfast. I highly recommend you set up a Black Cab Tour rather than just walk around downtown. He drove us to the Protestant and Catholic strife zones and gave a tremendous amount of information in the 1 hour. We saw the murals and the security gates that close between the zones every weekend which continues the prejudice. Our guide actually grew up in the strife zone. The Carrick-a-Rede Bridge stop was even more beautiful than Cliffs of Moher so the whole day was well worth it. Note you have to be able to walk about a mile out to the bridge on hilly terrain and one of my traveling friends was unable to get out to the bridge to see the sights so don't go on this tour if you can't walk hilly distances. The Causeway actually has a shuttle for 1.20 pounds that will drive you out to the sights because it is another 1 mile out there.
