It did rain but that is Ireland. The driver made the best of our trip.I would definately recommend this trip for anyone, who would like to experience coastal Ireland.
Very good day, spectacular scenery, interesting stops and very good pubs/restaurants. And the taxi trip round Belfast was fascinating and very moving. Wayne was the same tour guide as on our Cliffs of Moher Trip, and was even better if that were possible, as I'm sure he would agree!!!

Absolutely marvellous. Well worth the trip. Comfortable travelling and the Giant's Causeway is amazing.
Our tour guide, Conrad, was fantastic! We absolutely loved this tour and it was a great way to see Northern Ireland for the first time. Conrad knew plenty of information and history about Ireland and was always willing to answer any questions we had. He also gave great recommendations on where to eat.
The only negative thing about this tour was that the bridge was apparently closed due to wind, but when we walked down to see it, other tour groups had been given vouchers and were able to go across the bridge. We waited in line, hoping to cross the bridge, but the worker let other groups with vouchers go first even though our tour was supposed to include the bridge as well.
Other than this, the tour was great and we learned a ton, took plenty of pictures, and came away with great memories! Would highly recommend!
Great trip! We were amazed and grateful on the driver/tour guide´s professionalism. Afraid that 14 hours were going to be too many found that it looked short and we were ready for more. All the sites were worthwhile.
What an amazing place, great tour, I would highly recomend this tour
Fantastic tour, in spite of the weather! It´s a long day, but worth it!
We were a bit worried to start with on how long the tour was as we dont like sitting in coaches for ages, but it went so quickly and Wayne the driver/guide was very friendly and informative with a good Irish sense of humour.Giants Causeway is good but the Rope Bridge was better.I would miss the Belfast bit out and have more time somewhere else.Got to see the amzing Irish country side.It was the best part of our 3 day stay in Dublin.Look forward to coming back and doing one of the other tours.
Very nice trip. Joe was an excellent your guide, great history lessons and he even sang.
fantastic day,our driver/guide Mike was excellent. He was a great driver and kept us amused on the long drive with jokes and songs + pointed out places of interest and the stories/history behind them. Our first trip to Ireland ,the scenery is stunning(was helped by having fantastic weather0.
Everything was perfect. A beautiful tour with beautiful landscapes.
Fantastic and Informative day trip to the Giant's Causeway and Carrick Rope Bridge. Worth every cent.
Absolutely STUNNING scenery. Northen Ireland is so much more rugged than the south of Ireland. First, we went to the rope bridge. It is an intense hike up and down hills and up and down those Irish-style stairs (mis-shapen stones), so I am so glad I wore my hiking boots! Even if you are afraid of heights, it is worth it for the view.
Then, we went to the causeway, and I was so glad there was a bus to take us from the top of the hill (mountain?) for 2 Euro to the causeway and back. Again, I was glad for the boots because it was wet. It was fun hopping on the basalt columns. The guide told us this was the remains of a 50-60 million year old volcano eruption. COOL! My first time on lava and it's ancient! We had two hours to see it, and we spent one hour on the causeway, and one hour hiking at the top by the hotel (great view from there: watch your step as there's no railing to stop you from falling over the cliffs!)
Finally, we spent an hour in Belfast. What a cute little city. Very British with the black cabs and union jacks. Our guide pointed out the subtle differences in the countries since there was no "Welcome to the UK" sign, except the one I got on my cell phone.
This trip is a "can't miss" if you want a taste of Northern Ireland.
Great trip. Other than some rain which is normal for Ireland which resulted in us not being able to cross Garrick rope bridge, we had a good time.
