Wonderful!! I really enjoyed learning all about the troubles and feeling like I was on the set of game of thrones. So much breathtaking beauty. So much history. Really loved it
Amazing tour!! Although it seems like it would be a really long day it flew by and was planned out perfectly. Our tour guide was excellent and we learned so much history! Giant's Causeway is an extraordinary sight to see!!
This was an excellent day. Tour was by Wild Rover tours, Robbie was our guide and Richie was the driver. They were very professional, but fun, and full of information. They Black Taxi Cab tour was a terrific way to learn more about Belfast. Would highly recommend.
Excellent tour guide Robbie and driver Ritchie. Very entertainig and very informative
This trip was a very good value. It provided an insight to the troubles that most foreigners would never get on their own
Excellent and interesting. Our tour guide J.P. was exceptional, ensuring we left on time so the rest of the day went smoothly. We spent the morning doing a Black Taxi Tour of Belfast. Our guide Tom had first-hand knowledge of the history of the conflict in Northern Ireland which he shared along with interesting anecdotes and general history while showing us many significant sites. He was excellent sharing not just information but the emotions of the time and place. We left with a much greater understanding of recent conflict in Northern Island and its impact on life in Belfast.
We returned to meet J.P. and the rest of the group that had toured the Titanic Museum. Both on the trip to Belfast and throughout the rest of the day J.P. shared lots of information and stories, patiently answered questions, and encouraged everyone to fully participate in hiking and crossing the rope bridge at Carrick-A-Rede, and visiting The Giants Causeway. J.P. personally checked in with all tour participants multiple times during the day, something no other guide did. He offered to take photos of us at every stop so we have wonderful memories to share. Both stops we made were exceptionally beautiful despite the clouds. Even the lunch stop was great. Our bus driver also contributed in a meaningful way, adding lots of interesting tidbits as we traveled. This one-day tour is not to be missed!
Loved this tour, both the Black taxi which was very informative and thought provoking as well as the beautiful scenery at Giants Causeway.
Great trip, great tour guide. Black cab ride was dope, great guide who lived through the troubles in Belfast. The Causeway is really nice, but the Carick-A-Rede area that we went to after is truly spectacular, managed to snag a shot of a rainbow as we looked towards Scotland. Reminds me of an more dramatic version of my home in Newfoundland. Highly recommended, just bring something to do on the long ride home. Also, don't bother getting breakfast before the tour you stop somewhere almost right away to snag some.
Great tour, especially the Black Taxi Tour of Belfast. Giant's Causeway beautiful. Guide was knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend.
This was by far all of our favorite tour! It was a lengthy drive up to Belfast from Dublin, but our driver was very entertaining and highly informative as to the history as well as the sites we passed. The Black Taxi part of our tour was the absolute best! We learned so much of Belfast's turbulent recent history and so enjoyed hearing stories represented at the wall. The Giant's Causeway was fascinating and such a picturesque area. It was a very full day but certainly worth it!
Siofra was an exceptional guide for the tour to Northern Ireland. She has a passion for Irish history, culture and life. The ride to Belfast was comfortable and relaxing thanks to our driver, Richard. I learned so much on the Black Taxi Tour. The guide/driver Brian? lived through The Troubles and provided a unique perspective of life in Belfast experienced at that time. During the ride to each activity Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, Dark Hedges Siofra explained the significance of what we were about to see or experience and answered questions with wit, humor and a wealth of knowledge. I feel that my excursion to Northern Ireland could not have been any more enjoyable, unless we'd been able to stop at the Bushmills Distillery as we passed.
From start to finish, this tour was brilliant! The tour guide Rob was very engaging throughout the day and the views by the Giant's Causeway and the Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge were second to none - absolutely stunning!
The tour was great, I really enjoyed it! I loved Giant's Causeway and the Rope bridge for the beautiful views of Ireland's landscape, it was absolutely stunning. I could of spent even more time at both of these spots just walking along the coast and taking in the views. The route alone the coast from the Causeway to the bridge was also stunning. I would recommend spending more time at Dunlace Castle and going into the castle versus just taking a photo from afar, but I do understand the time restrictions with so many stops during the day. I really enjoyed the black taxi tour as I learned a lot about Northern Ireland and Belfast that I had no idea about. I also liked that we ended the black taxi tour at the shipping docks, so that even though I didn't chose that option, I still got to see and take a picture where the titanic was built. Our tour guide JP was great, he was fun, upbeat and outgoing and you could tell he definitely enjoyed what he was doing. He was very informative and knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend him to anyone else.
Amazing trip, well worth the time and money. Our Black Taxi driver was very informative, and he gave us good insight and stories of the past and present Belfast. Giant's Causeway was stunning and a must see! As soon as you get to the location of the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, make the short hike to the bridge since there were queues when we went. Our tour guide and bus driver Robby and Richard were super!
Great tour. kevin, our tour guide was wonderful. The black taki driver, Tom was also very good. I loved every minute of it!
This tour is really incredible!! I have booked many through Viator that I have been very happy with over the years, but this one is something special. I elected to do the black taxi tour, but we were offered the option to do the Titanic Experience or the tour. The black taxi tour was one of the most educational and eye-opening experiences I have had in my life. The guides bring the issues of the past and present to life, and the conflict is something you really have to be in West Belfast to understand. Red, my black taxi driver, was extremely personable and informative. Just an FYI, the tour does pass Belfast city centre, but does not include time there. With Giants Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede bridge, there is no time for it. I would recommend setting aside some additional time during your holiday to visit it if you are interested in that. Both Giants Causeay and the Carrick-a-Reade bridges are amazing. I actually preferred the bridge for some of the most beautiful cliff views I have ever seen. Jim, the guide, and driver, Paddy, were outstanding. All of Jim's stories were meaningful and interesting sometime I find that guides can overwhelm visitors with an influx of information, but Jim definitely has the balance down and kept the group engaged throughout. I would recommend if you take photos on your phone to bring a portable charger! The coach is definitely luxury leather seats, but does not have outlets. The wifi on board was handy, as well. You will not regret this tour!
Great experience! I highly recommend the Black Taxi tour and the Giant's Causeway is a must see! The entire tour was awesome.
This was one of the absolute highlights of our trip! our taxi driver Brian took really good care of us and told us his personal story and it really touched us deeply. We learned a lot and got some really great pictures too. the second part of the trip to giant's causeway was breathtaking!
We enjoyed every minute of this trip. The Causeway was a great experience, and the Black Taxi Tour was very informative. Would recommend this tour for tourists.
This tour was one of the best I've ever experienced especially the Black Cab Tour in Belfast. Our guide, Brian was excellent. So knowledgeable and passionate about the history of is city. The giant causeway and rope bridge were great as well. Will certainly spread the word. Thank you
Tour was absolutely incredible. Definitely worth every Euro. Red our black taxi guide/driver was great!
Trip to Belfast was great. It's nice to hear personal stories from experienced guides. Brian L. was informative and super helpful. He suggested a very necessary idea for dinner in Dublin before we headed back to our hotel after the tour. Definitely played a part in my Ireland experience, so thank you!
This was a wonderful tour and the company packed so much in one day. We were surprised by some of the new things we learned during the Black Taxi Tour and gained much insight to the era of the troubles in Belfast. The tour of the Giants Causeway and the bridge were so beautiful. We would never have been able to do this much in one day without the guidance of such wonderful guides. i highly recommend this tour to anyone wishing to see a great deal of Northern Ireland in one day.
