It was worth to visit there to walk through the Giant's Causeway and rope bridge.

The train ride was a better way to get to Northern Ireland, more leg room, small group, not as crowded as a bus. The bus from Belfast up the coast to the bridge then the Causeway was fantastic!! The driver was knowledgeable, funny and could give a brief political/religious overview without being political or biased, he promoted Belfast and Northern Ireland for more tourism. The scenery was incredible and weather was not horrible lol. The bridge, while pretty cool, was not a big as I expected, but the Giants Causeway was what I was really going to see.

This is a fantastic tour-starts with a train ride from Dublin to Belfast where a bus tour starts. Sean our guide was great and Patrick our bus driver was fantastic. He gave us so much history about the country up in the North of Ireland. Yes, the trip is long but so worthwhile-you see and learn so much. Our days were sunny so we explored the Giant's Causeway--this tour is well organized and it gives you plenty of time at the stops to enjoy the countryside. Highly recommended.

A really good trip! The guides were really helpful and accompanied the train from Dublin to Belfast, and was knowledgeable on board the bus. We covered a lot of ground, but it was nicely paced to see taste of the Carrick-a-Rede Bridge and the Giants Causeway.

... small criticism was that the wifi on the bus was not working, which would of been helpful during the rides in between the attractions.

My tour guide was great! Paddy showed me the sights and kept me up to date with all the sights along the trip. Alan was a great bus driver and kept us safe through the journey.

Such a great day, we had perfect weather. Our host David met us in Dublin and was very informative and friendly. He guided us to Belfast where we met up with the rest of the tour and met our tour guide and bus driver Alan. Alan was hilarious, sharing some good and not so good jokes along the way. He was sure to point out all the highlights along the journey so we wouldn't miss out on anything. As for the sights, the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge and the Giants causeway are an absolute must see. Take this tour.........highly recommended.
