Our tour guide Wayne was amazing! He was filled with historical facts, was highly entertaining, helpful, and efficient getting us to the Causeway. Beautiful scenery! It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend the day trip.
Great trip Sara our guide was great very patient funny and knowledgeable.I would recomemend viator and extreme ireland tours to everyone
I would recommend this day trip to anyone. While it is a long day with an early start it was well worth the trip. The scenery to say the least was breathtaking. We crossed the Carrick a Rede Rope bridge and did the walk down to the Giants Causeway. Our driver/guide Barry did a fantastic job and was a wealth of knowledge about the history of the areas we travelled as well as the mystical stories about the Causeway and other areas. This was my third tour to the Causeway and was by far the best with Extreme Ireland
This is also a must see when visiting Ireland. Anyone going to Ireland that exculded a vist to the North is missing a great opportunity to view spectacular vistors.
Absolutely gorgeous! Our driver/guide, Bud, was informative and entertaining as well. Well worth the early morning start - I will probably repeat this tour on my next trip to Ireland!
Great. We had a car. But, we're feeling lazy and didn't want to do this long trip in a day on our own.
Our guide was Joe. Fun, sang us songs and knew his stuff. The information he gave was delivered in a great manner without being boring. Also, as a local, he knew many stories and tales not in be found in books. Thoroughly enjoyed the day which raced by. Highly recommend.
Great day even though it was long. Our guide was very experienced and made provided excellent commentaries about the history and geography of the area. He was careful to keep us on time and was very accommodating to any special needs. A most worthwhile tour
For the brave n looking for something more than a sedentary placid tour, this tour involves walking across the rope bridge that you won't forget. Also Extreme Ireland driver n guide is excellent! Do all Irish guides sing? I'll never know but it sure gave a different flavor from the usual type of sightseeing tour. Enjoyable.
This was such a great tour! Mike Murphy was our tour guide and so much fun!! Its a great way to get out of Dublin and see the Northern Countryside. I was worried about all the driving, but Mike made the time go by fast with songs and stories about Irish history.(and lots of breaks!) This was one of our favorites days in Ireland. Would highly recommend!
Absolutely amazing, it was really long day, but Giant's Causeway under the blue sky was fantastic, our driver was really good and knowledgable, big thanks for this trip :).
Long day but well worth seeing the sites. Our driver/guide, Barry was terrific.
Giant's Causeway was a last second trip while I was in Ireland, but I was glad I went. Our tour guide was brilliant, funny, and a great guide all around. The weather was great and I thought it was well worth the price. I would do this trip again if I came back with friends or family for sure.
We would recommend this tour to everyone. The scenery was amazing! The bridge was a little iffy as the winds were howling from seemingly every direction, but the view was amazing. Mike took us through some areas of Belfast, showing us the graffiti and was very knowledgeable about the history of all the areas. He even sang us a few tunes during the trip. Highly recommended!!
Giant's Causeway and The Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge were awesome. Make sure you are in shape though. The walk down to the bridge is hilly, but worth every penny you pay for this trip. The views are stunning. We had great weather the day we went. Giant's Causeway offered breathtaking views. I recommend walking down to the bottom and then taking the bus ride back up for 1.20 euro. I walked. I survived. Again it is very steep, but the views are worth the trip. Our driver was very good, and well versed in Irish history. We stopped at a little restaurant for lunch called Chilly McCool's that had a menu of items all for about 8.95 euro. I ate lunch for 10 euro. On the way back, we stopped in Belfast for about an hour. Wish I had more time there, but I could have chosen a different tour. My son highly recommended Giant's Causeway and I took him at his word. I'm glad I did.
Well organised, Driver very informed about all areas visited and very disciplined.
Rained all morning, wind blustering, by the time we got up to the causeway the bridge had been closed. Our driver Wayne improvised, and since we had extra time, we stopped at the Old Bushmill's Whiskey Distillery, for a few minutes in the gift shop. Of course, as we were heading towards Belfast, the skies cleared and the sun shone. Once in Belfast, he arranged an impromptu meeting, for those of us who wished to pay 10 pounds apiece, with a taxi driver who was a Belfast native, and who gave us his insights into the conflicts and history of Belfast, a VERY enjoyable and learning experience. Much of our time the driver Wayne was giving us histories about Ireland, and I hope the other people from various countries were able to understand and not miss out on his expertise. Overall, would do it again and hope the weather would be more agreeable, but this is Ireland, and winter, so it is what it is. Wayne's improvising made up somewhat for not being able to do the bridge, but it is totally understandable that in high winds safety is first and foremost, and it simply wasn't safe.
A beautiful drive through Northern Ireland. I think the rope bridge is a bit overrated but the views all along the northern coast are fantastic. I would have liked more time in Belfast but you do have enough time to hire a cab for an hour and see western Belfast where so much of the "struggle" took place in the 70s and 80s when Belfast was a battleground. While it is safe now the pain is still raw and you can feel what it must have been like.
This tour was a blast! Liam was excellent as a tour guide! Can't say enough about the Irish Coast and the rugged beauty...Belfast was much prettier and nicer than I had imagined...and of course, the Giant's Causeway was marvelous!
This one is a "must do" for the bucket list. Amazing scenery and feeling like you are on the edge of the world!
Our tour guide, Paul, was great! Would have liked more time at Giant's Causeway and skipped the stop in Belfast. Great tour!

If you want spectacular views or the North Coast, and and aren't afraid of heights, this is a fantastic choice. We went in December when the country was being battered by gale winds, gray skies, and rain... and it was still incredible. The Carrick-a-rede rope bridge has so many incredible views just walking to the bridge... it is about .62 miles one way on a steep and winding path, but so worth it. The Giant's Causeway is again a bit from the dropoff point, but if you have £2 you can ride a city bus from the center to the Causeway... but walk if the weather is nice. (Do bring £ for lunch and snacks, as you are in the UK). Robbie was a great guide, a lot of good commentary... a long day, but again, so worth it for the views.
