The tour guide did a great job and I was impressed with his knowledge. Some of the other passengers were less than considerate concerning times to be on the bus during the tour. I would recommend the tour.

I'll be honest, it was a long long drive from Dublin, but seeing the Causeway in person was well worth the trip. The bus was quite comfortable and the driver, J.R., was very accommodating and friendly.

Oboy this one was tiring!!! The walk over the bridge finished by 1 and by the time we reached the Giants causeway I was starving. Would have been great if we could have driven around Belfasts Troubled areas in the hour we had at our disposal. The driver Bud was very knowledgeable and has a fantastic voice...he sang too.

We had a great trip with great weather! Our tour guide knew a lot about the Northern Ireland political situation and we had a great tour of Belfast included.

It was a long day but worth it. I had failed to read the instuctions about confirming the trip 24 hrs ahead of taking it until the last minute and as we were on the trip the morning after arrival in Dublin, I rang Extreme Ireland from home - and the call was answered by the coach driver ! It appears that the company is very small, but there is a personal touch and Jamie was an excellent driver and raconteur.
The voucher says that you need to be at the Tourist Information Office for 0630 but Jamie said we needed to be there for 0620hrs yet he hung about til 0640 for 6 latecomers ...who did not arrive.
I would like to think that he would have waited for us, too - yet we had made the effort to be there on time .....
The Causway was fantastic and made more special by the BBC who were filming with a low flying helicopter folr the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games.
It is quite a jaunt to reach the Carrick rope bridge and there are many steps so not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.

We enjoyed the trip, and especially the bus driver's sense of humor and knowledge of the sights. Our suggestions: For the 1st convenience break, we were disappointed that there wasn't a full-service restaurant, because we had to order cafeteria style, and the food wasn't that good. Also, we wish we could have had more time to spend in Belfast.

The Giant's Causeway is a very worthwhile day trip to take! The rope bridge was also fun. Would have liked more time in Belfast though - the 1 hour in the city goes by so fast!

What a magnificent trip. Worth the time, energy and money. However, the information about this tour is incomplete. The amount and degree of difficulty in the walking is not given. It would helpful and courteous for them to tell that there is more than a mile of walking to and from the rope bridge and with that 90 difficult and tedious steps down to it and then again on return. Many people had difficulty. The tour of the countryside was grand and beautiful as was the Giant causeway. Again, a great deal of walking. The tour of Belfast was too fast and did not show any of the murals. All in all, a good and enjoyable time.
