This is a must tour for those staying in Dublin. Long day, but very comfortable. The day started with reserved seating on the coach bus, which also included Wi-fi. We chose the Black Taxi Tour, and the local guide was very knowledgeable on the "troubles" of Northern Ireland. Robbie, the tour guide throughout our day, was very fun and kept us informed. Rope bridge was fun, great views, and Giant's Causeway is very unique. Bring Pound Stirling currency and have good walking shoes! I highly recommend this day tour.
This tour was great! Richie our guide was very informative. Our bus driver, Mick, very skilled on cold December roads. The scenery was spectacular. The Black Taxi tour was well worth it. Would definitely recommend it.
Everything went smoothly and on time! The tour guide Ciaran is a pro, the bus driver kept us safe on the road , definitely not a bumpy ride to the coastal areas! Ciaran also offered much information about Ireland and he's got quite a sense of humor there to keep us entertained! It was a great trip!
Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We were not afraid to approach him and ask questions. Learnt a lot about Ireland because of him. Would highly recommend the belfast black taxi tour. It was an eye opener
Cannot say enough about this tour. Absolutely the most amazing day possible. The Belfast Black Taxi Tour was so interesting, I learned so much about, "The Troubles" as they called it. I learned why so much happened and how they are working for peace now. Then we toured northern England to Giant's Causeway, WOW is all I can say. Beautiful is not a strong enough word for Giant's Causeway. The walk back is a little tough, wear good shoes and leave time for it. The rope bridge was ok, again another long hike out and back and not as interesting. But this trip is worth it for the Giant's Causeway. Truly a unique and stunning place!
Informative, beautiful, entertaining - overall a wonderful experience!
This tour was a definite highlight of my trip. The cab driver was very knowledgeable and gave us some great insights into Belfast's troubled times. We saw things I never knew existed to this day. Like the wall that seperates two sides. I had the chance to sign the wall. Giants causeway and the rope bridge were amazing and the scenery stunning. The driver and guide were also fantastic and entertaining. I would definately recommend this tour to family and friends.
I would highly recommend this day trip. The giants causeway is exceptional Belfast and the Black Taxi tour are eye opening to say the least. Our driver and guide did a great job. Beautiful scenery.
Amazing and captivating. Kiran, the tour guide was very informative, humorous and engaging. I even learned a nice Gaelic slang from him! The Black Taxi Tour in Belfast was exceptionally informative and historically fascinating. I highly recommend this 5 stars tour.
The one issue that I had was with Viator booking and false advertising of this tour. The tour included Hotel Pick up and drop-off but that was not true. I had to wake up very early in the morning, take the train to another hotel more than 30 minutes away and wait outside that hotel for the bus to pick me up!!! I complained but did not get any response from Viator!! Do not believe Viator's advertising of hotel pickup/drop-off for this tour.
Excellent tour....Black taxi tour was very informative, giant's causeway what a sight to behold and the rope bridge walk was hair raising. Ireland is a beautiful country to visit. The only concern I have with the tour was the drop off. Returning back to Dublin late and dark with few solo travellers and female travellers who were bit disorientated with the location of the drop off. We were told to catch taxis to our hotels and were not aided to hail down the taxis and given direction where to the nearest taxi ramp. Another female friend and I had to help a solo (female) traveller hail down a taxi for her and then when walked around looking for one ourselves. As it was 8:30-9pm in the night and raining, we as tourists were very unaware of our location and surrounding. I would highly recommend that the tour organisers make sure that all their clients, after a great day, to hail down taxis for those who need them and direct the taxis to their hotels. This will make the solo travellers and female traveller feel safer in a new city and recommend the tour to others. I can not recommend this tour to solo female travellers as it gets back to Dublin late and there is only one drop off point in the city.
this was an amazing trip. the guide was very informative and helped to put a lot of history into perspective.
This tour was great! Everything exceeded my expectations, and the highlight turned out to be the black taxi tour in Belfast. There's plenty of time to explore Giant's Causeway and have lunch at a cosy pub, as well as some other enjoyable attractions along the way.
Terrific way to visit Belfast and Northern Ireland from Dublin, all in one day. It is a long day, but just sit back and relax during the bus part of the trip as you'll need your walking energy during the stops at The Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge stops. The Northern Ireland Coastline locations are beautiful and stunning to see. The Black Taxi tour, with our driver Tom, was fantastic; he gave us the perspective of both sides of the "Troubles" and took us to all the interesting streets and mural walls in Belfast. We also got to briefly see the Titanic Museum and area after our Black Taxi tour, some had picked just the Titanic over the Taxi tour. On our particular Tour, the police closed the Highway somewhere south of Belfast and north of Dundalk, due to a bad car accident, so we had to revert to taking little country and town roads for almost an hour, adding that much time to out trip. So in all it lasted from 7AM to 9:30PM… Keep that in mind when booking.
