OUTSTANDING! Host on the bus trip was very knowledgeable and even enthused about the aspects he pointed out; also appreciated the skills of the experienced bus driver dealing with traffic . The Black Taxi Tour was very evenly handed in explanation. The personal retelling brought to life how the historic as well as current political/cultural situation has evolved. I highly recommend it. Giant's Causeway was absolutely mindboggling! It is a must. This tour was a highlight of being able to see the most of the Belfast and the natural beauty of the country side! Great value in every way.
The Black Taxi Tour was amazing. Even my 5 and 8 year olds were interested in listening to Tom's telling of the troubles of Belfast. The Giant's Causeway and rope bridge were beautiful!
Our Belfast and Giant's Causeway tour was a full day but very we'll planned and led by our guide Robbie. We especially appreciated the Black Taxi Tour which included a visit to the Peace Wall. When the rope bridge was closed because of wind, Robbie arranged for us to visit Dunluce Castle.

Incredibly interesting black tour cab at Belfast, a terribly hasty meal at noon, but then the beautiful sights at the Giant's Causeway compensated for this, followed by the challenge of the Carrick-a-reed rope bridge experience. It was a rather long and tiring day but the guide Ciarán made it very pleasant with all the information he gave us along the day !
Lots of variety and history on this tour. Both our guide and the Black Taxi guide were terrific. High winds caused the rope bridge stop to be cancelled so saw Dunluce castle instead. Perfect alternative. Great day tour.
Although there is long distance I recommend this tour! Black Taxi tour was informative and interesting! Giant Cause Way including rope bridge where also included and must see areas!
This tour was through Wild Rover tours. We choose the black taxi tour of Belfast which was really different over the Titanic museum option. Our taxi driver was Tom and we would highly recommend him to anyone taking a black taxi tour of Belfast!!!. He was very personable and quite funny at times. Tom's portrayal of the troubled history of his city and its affects on its citizens was informative, interesting, as well as objective and empathic to both parties. The second part of the day is the Giant's Causeway and included the optional walk over the rope bridge. The causeway is was very scenic. Walking on the pylons can be tricky because they vary in size and are not always level. Walking the rope bridge was very fun, even on an extremely windy day. We had one lady on our tour that was afraid of heights. I believe that she second guessed herself about walking over the bridge but she did it and was very pleased with herself afterwards.
Amazing trip! From the tour guide on bus, to Tom from Belfast Black cab tours, to beauty of Giant's Causeway.
DO NOT MISS the cab tour of Belfast. The passion and history of the ride is unmatched. I have taken many tours of Ireland, this is one of the best , if not the best! Must do!
The bus was prompt, clean and safe. Driver did an excellent job, Carl I think his name was. Brian was terrific as the guide. He was timely in his comments, factual, added music and other antidotes to make it fun. He was very clear in his instructions but not burdensome. Everyone had a great time!
Wow - a great learning experience - Im glad we took the time to go there.
Tour guides with Wild Rover were great and I would highly recommend this group. The black taxi tour of Belfast was the highlight of our trip to Ireland.
This trip was the highlight of my 4 weeks in London, Paris, Brussels, ireland, China and Hong Kong. The tour was friendly and one on one. The weather wasn't the best but it didn't put a dampner on the day. When reaching Belfast we had a choise of the black cab tour or spend our time in the titanic museam. We chose the black cab, our driver Tom was our guide there where 5 of us in the cab and the bus tour operator joined us as well. We where taken on a tour of the murals on both the catholic and prodidstent sides of Belfast and given a history of its troubles. We got to sign the peace wall that had been signed by many along with the more famous ( ie Bill Clinton) . From there we headed to the giants Causeway with simply spectacular views of the coast line, stoping to take photos of the castles used in the filming of the Game of Throns, can only imagin how much more beautiful this would have been on a clear day. On arriving at the causeway we walked the road down to the stones that formed this wonderful place and took in the area, then back up to the pub for a warm drink in front if an open fire where we relaxed and dried off. The black cab is a must if you have any connection to the area as we did, our mother being born in Belfast
