My husband and I LOVED this Northern Ireland tour! Our tour guide Richard, and driver John, were awesome! Richard was so great at explaining all the wonderful sights in Northern Ireland and Belfast. We had a great time at the Titanic Belfast museum, Giant's Causeway, and Carrick-a-Rede bridge. I HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone. It's worth every penny! Even though the weather was less than ideal, our guide still made sure we got as much out of the experience as possible!
Our tour had a "bad day". We got stopped on the freeway for over an hour and a half due to a major road incident. We arrived at the Titanic Exhibit which was nice, but extremely crowded, making it hard to see the exhibits and we probably had less time due to the road incident. After we returned to the bus, we were told that the remainder of the tour had been cancelled due to some extremely high winds making it unsafe to do Giant's Causeway. All of this being beyond the control of the driver or guide, they made the best of it. They were both friendly and professional. J.P was the guide and I'm sorry I forgot the name of the driver. We could not re-book our Wild Rover Tour because we were leaving the next morning for home, though they did make that offer.
Very informative road trip - the driver and guide were both very friendly and made sure we all got to see as much as possible while still keeping us on schedule. We had the option of the Titanic Visitor Centre or a black cab tour of Belfast. We chose the Visitor Centre, but I think I would have preferred the tour of the city. Maybe next time...
What a great tour. comfortable bus. incredible scenery. The Titanic musem is wonderful and so touching. Giants causway has to be experienced for yourself. Like looking over the edge of the world. Even after a long day our tour guide Conor was filled with interesting facts and fun stories. Driver Paddy was also great . Please go and ask for this tour team.
The day started on the bus around 7:30 and ended around 8:30, but we were never bored. Our guide / storyteller Michael was outstanding and made our time on the bus thoroughly enjoyable! Both the Titanic Experience and the Giant'so Causeway attractions were fantastic, and a third attraction, the Cerikk A Rede Rope Bridge was an unexpected thrill. A memorable day!
This was an excellent full day tour. We chose to do the Titanic Experience (vs. the Taxi Cab). It was very informative and well done, giving you an indepth view from the building of the Titanic to the aftermath. Going to the Giant's Causeway was awesome! Our guide Peter and driver Sarah kept us safe, informed and entertained throughout the day. We highly recommend this tour.
Bus tour though long was great. Tara and Sid were very knowledgeable pointing out places of interest along the route. Titanic exp. was fantastic. Causeway was such a wonder of nature to see. Unfortunately needed more time to cross the Carrick a Rede bridge.So many people there and of course a whole lot of walking!! Tara and Sid made it most enjoyable. Highly recommend it.
