Gorgeous scenery! My favorite of our trip to Ireland! Loved the Giant's Causeway and the Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge (even if it was chilly and rainy!)
Amazing tour! Wish the itinerary would have mentioned the Carrick-A-Rede bridge being more difficult for seniors or people with joint problems since it is a long walk, uphill and downhill as well as several long, steep flights of stairs. Other that than, great trip-a must see in Ireland.
Really good trip.
The tour guide: Noel looked after us well.
The Giant's causeway was awesome, as was the scenic drive through the Glens of Antrim - one of the top coast drives in the world, We stopped at various places (castles and a distillery) on the way for picture stops.
Luckily, the weather was on our side - not sure how it would have turned out if it rained. On a clear day, you can clearly see Scotland across the water.
Leave enough time for the Giant's Causeway visitor centre. It's interesting and the gift shop is good too.
The rope bridge is quite an experience! It's quite a walk from the coach and the cost of crossing is extra to the tour (it being a National Trust owned site). It's further than we thought and the walk was a little too far for the end of a long day.
This was a great adventure with magical sights - would recommend to everyone!
Wet took this tour our very first day in Ireland, April 19. Our guide was Brendan and he was terrific. Took such good care of us and everyone else on the tour. Our driver was great too. He was not only knowledgeable but entertaining as well. This was our favorite tour of the trip and would do it again. You're lucky to have Brendan on your staff. We can't thank him enough for all he did for us.
The trip up the coast of Northern Ireland was breathtaking. By train and bus there were amazing sights around every bend. Liam, our guide, was the best and the whole tour ran smoothly and trouble free.
WONDERFUL Trip! The country side was breath taking, the tour director very informative (you could really tell he LOVED his country). I would recommend this trip for anyone.
This trip was amazing. Long day but so much to see. The Rail guide Jim was so helpful during and after the trip. I would highly recommend this adventure. Plus the Viator company made my trip so easy.
Enjoyed a very long, but wonderful day exploring Northern Ireland! The scenery was amazing and my husband and I agreed we could have never seen all that we did if we attempted to do this tour on our own. Our tourguide, Liam was a very knowledgeable, fun and pleasant gentleman. Our bus driver (don't recall his name) was also quite knowledgeable and witty. Bring your camera and be prepared to take lots of pictures!
Our trip to the Giant's Causeway, Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge and The Bushmills Distillery was absolutely fantastic. The train and coach trip was relaxing and scenic and our guide was informative and jovial.

Absolutely fantastic! A long trip but worth every minute! Our RailTour guide, Norman, was extremely helpful. The coastal drive is absolutely gorgeous. The Carrick rope bridge proved to be easier to navigate than we expected. We walked to the Giant Causeway from the visitors' center, and again this is not difficult. We had a lunch stop at the Bushmill Distillery which was a buffet. Since it was October, it was not crowded, and we were served immediately. Upon returning to Belfast, we dropped off several people at their hotels, and the bus tour guide gave a running commentary on the places we were seeing. We had a late arrival in Dublin, but Norman helped us hail a taxi. We highly recommend this tour.
