This was without any doubt one of the best experiences in my life. The Black Cab tour was informative and our guide Gerard drew from personal experience whilst telling us about the troubled history in Belfast. The Giant's Causway was breathtaking. I would recommend this tour as a *MUST* for anyone visiting Ireland.
Learning of Belfast's history and being shown sights of significance by our Black Taxi guide, Tom, who lives and has always lived in the area of greatest 'past' conflict; was nothing short of astounding.
If you truly wish to know the truth, you must take this tour.
Thank you Tom.
Our guide, Richie, was so informative. He was able to explain completely how "The Troubles" began and was completely unbiased. My best tip would be to sit up front so you can tap into Richie's wealth of knowledge about Ireland. The black taxi tour was amazing!
This was an amazing tour! Ireland is beautiful so the scenery will always be amazing so what really makes the difference are the guides. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, interesting and funny! Giant's Causeway is a breathtaking place and hearing the amusing stories behind it was the cherry on top. You also have the option of going on a tour of Belfast or the Titanic museum. We chose the Titanic and learned a ton of rich history from another tour guide who was a local and just as interesting and funny (which is not easy to do considering the history itself).
One of my best day tours ever. It was a beautiful July day and the drive
north from Dublin was wonderful as our excellent tour guide shared with us his tremendous
knowledge of Northern Ireland and its tumultuous past. In the morning, our Black taxi tour into Belfast's most troubled neighborhoods added a layer of chilling reality and insightful perspective to our growing knowledge of this little area's troubled past. In the afternoon, we went on to something very different,
Giant's Causeway, with its historic rock formations and all the mystery and folklore that have become a part
of this UNESCO site. On our way back, our driver took us to Carrick-a-Rede where a rope bridge, 100 ft. above the sea, connects an island to the mainland. Most of the folk on our bus walked across the bridge to the island. This tour, organized by Wild Rover Tours, had a tour guide and a bus driver. It made a difference because the tour guide was able to give us his full attention. It was a long day but a wonderful learning experience!
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.
