Excellent day trip! The tour in Belfast Black Taxi was very informative, however it would have been nice to have some free time at the end to walk around downtown Belfast, have lunch, etc.... The tour also included the Giant Causeway, which is amazing! Its a MUST see! It is a long day, 12+ hours, but worth it!
The Giant's Causeway is an amazing place to visit and we would love to go back to spend more time. The Black Taxi Tour in Belfast was extremely interesting and informative, providing insight into the history and current events in the area. Our guide was very well-versed in the history of Ireland and happily shared his knowledge and excitement about Ireland with us.
I was not familiar with some of the history of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. This tour helped to put things into perspective and understanding of Belfast. Being a math teacher, I found the Giant's Causeway to be amazing with its "geometric" stones.
I would highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in learning more about the Troubles or interested in seeing the beautiful landscape of Northern Ireland. Our tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and make the trip both a fun and learned experience.
This is a real eye opener. Well worth the trip. Wish it was longer. The causeway was beautiful as well. A "must see".
Best tour that we did while on our 10 trip to Ireland.
Easy access from Dublin, comfortable coach ride for 2 hrs to Belfast.
DO NOT DO THIS TRIP WITHOUT THE BLACK TAXI TOUR!!!! (they also give you the option of the Titanic memorial exhibition) Black taxi trip fabulous learning trip for the history specific to the area, and it was enlightening to me that so many of the 20-somethings and younger had never had this history as part of their history curriculum...It is really astounding! Very sobering, and thought provoking! Our driver has lived through these "troubles" all his life, so the history was first hand and personally experienced by him and his family!
Giant's Causeway absolutely beautiful and not to be missed!
For "Game of Thrones" readers or watchers, see the areas used for the filming first hand!
Very interesting and our black cab driver was very informative, too bad we didn't have more time with him.

The black-cab tour in Belfast was way too political, giving only the IRA side of the conflict. Better to have an short tour of the neighborhoods with an impartial guide, and then a tour of the city to see how things have improved and how thew city has prospered. Right now I have a pretty dim view of Belfast in general.
Also, I expected a lunch stop in Belfast after the tour, as it was already 1 pm, but we didn't stop again until we reached the Giant's Causeway at 2:30. And even then, lunch time came off the time spent at the Causeway, which ended up being less than an hour if you chose to have lunch.
