Great trip. Our guide Yoan and driver John were wonderful. The Belfast Black Taxi Tour was the best. Very informative and sobering. Giant's Causeway was impressive.
Excellent- the guide Yoan and the driver Richard were terrific and very helpful .
The tour was very varied and full of information - a great day plus the weather cooperated !!!!!
Well worth it !!!!!
The Black Taxi Tour of Belfast really shows you how the Troubles have impacted the average person in Belfast. Our guide told us about his experiences growing up during such difficult times. He was also knowledgeable about the murals and took the time to show us a beautiful cathedral. The Giant's Causeway is breathtaking, as is the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. There weren't too many crowds in either place, so we were able to see everything we wanted to see and still have a few minutes left over to get some food at the Giant's Causeway buyer beware, there are only two restaurants at the Causeway, and they can get busy and some hot tea at the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.
Yoan was our tour guide - excellent. And Geordie lead the black taxi ride - also good, but so sad. It's a great way to spend a spare day in Dublin and learn a lot about Ireland's history. This tour was operated by a local tour company, and I would definitely do another one with them.
The tour was fascinating and enlightening . Gerry, the black cab driver and guide was excellent.
A very educational tour, worth the time repent if you're looking for something to do.
So happy we were able to work this tour into our itinerary!!!
The Black Taxi Tour was very informative and interesting, Giant's Causeway beautiful and walking across the rope bridge very cool. The coastal views are amazing. It was a great day, I would highly recommend it.
Great! Siofra was an excellent guide. The trip was informative and fun!
Loved it!! Perfect day.. all details taken care of. We especially enjoyed the Black Taxi Tour.. Fascinating!
Excellent. Richard, our bus driver and David our tour guide, were amazing. We particularity liked the black cab tour. So interesting.....
The Irish people are so terrific and welcoming.
This was a beautiful experience, and the timing for each of the stops was just right. One of the best highlights was the Belfast Black Taxi Tour. Our taxi driver was knowledgable, passionate, and fun, and was sure to make us comfortable during the tour. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
A great day. Enjoyed the scenery. Our tour guide for the black taxi was Paul and we enjoyed his passion and historic descriptions of life in Belfast. The Giants causeway was spectacular as was the clear sunny weather!
I had very best experience with Wild Rover Tour to explore Belfest and Giant's Causeway. Well worth it for a day tour.
We had a fantastic time on this trip! Owen was a great driver and Jim was a trove of historical information. Everything was well-organized, on-time and well-planned. We especially enjoyed the black taxi tour in Belfast. Even having read about the 'troubles' and followed it in the media, it is impossible to understand the plight of the Irish in the North without seeing firsthand the oppression and animal like conditions they live in. Titanic was an architectural masterpiece, but not on the same level. The Giant's Causeway is absolutely incredible and our only regret was that we wasted 45 minutes of this 2 hours eating. Next time, we'll pack a lunch and spend more time exploring the coast
The Belfast Black Taxi was extremely informative. Geordie, our driver/guide did a great job presenting both sides of the troubles. He left it up to us to decide about the right/wrong of both sides. It was pouring rain the day we went but he stayed upbeat and kept us moving. Unfortunately the Causeway portion was also drenched in rain but we were still able to see many beautiful sites along the way. Definitely worth the effort.
This was a wonderful tour! I highly reccomend the Belfast tour with the black cab private tour. It was truly an eye opener into the division between the Catholics and the Protestants. The coastal views were amazing and overall one of the best tours my husband and I have ever taken. :
Brilliant. Loved it. Despite a few tiny negatives. Definitely worth doing.
Giants Causeway/Carrick a rede bridge:
Could have spend much longer at the causeway but time lost due to traffic hold up. We had 1hr 40mins to have lunch and explore. Had to queue up at The Nook for lunch, got take away sandwiches, still waited 20 mins for this. Then had to take separate bus down to causeway which ran every 10 mins. Take your own lunch and snacks to save time.
Black Taxi: Our guide Gerry was a wealth of information explained the history and current situation extremely well. Learnt a lot. Unfortunately due to numbers on our main day tour of which the taxi tour was a part, there were six of us squashed into one taxi. Driver/guide apologetic. Did make difficult to take good photos though.
Great tour! Promptly on time for pick up and throughout the day. Comfortable coach with friendly and approachable guides, Kevin and John. We were very impressed with Kevin's vast knowledge of Ireland's history and myths. I'd recommend this tour for anyone with time for a day trip. We were able to get a brief history of the Northern Ireland politics as well as ample amounts of time at both the Giant's Causeway and the Rope Bridge. Worth every dollar :
This tour was so enjoyable in every way. Our tour guide, Jim, and driver, John, were an absolute treat. They kept us laughing while still providing interesting facts and details about everything. My husband and I did several tours while on our vacation and of all our tour guides, Jim and John were by far our favorite. Unfortunately, the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge was closed due to high winds, however, we instead had an opportunity to visit and see inside Dunluce Castle which was amazing. I loved this tour so much, I might even go again if I get a chance to go back!
Tour was excellent. The guide and the bus driver were hilarious and kept us entertained the entire drive.
Fabulous tour. Belfast taxi your the highlight. Very interesting.
Great day out we really loved the black cab tour of Belfast . Just remember to take some pound with you .
