We took both GoT tours with this tour operator McComb's and they were both great. We enjoyed the company of the tour guide Derek, even though we had to listen to his lousy jokes a second time : it was still great fun! We can recommend this tour to everyone. If you have to choose between them, I recommend taking the Giant's Causeway Tour. Be prepared for lots of speedy walking and bring a rain coat!

A must for all Game of Thrones fans. The best tour I had the whole trip plus the best tour guide. Derrick was by far the most knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining guide ever. You have to request him. His corny jokes and humor kept the long bus rides entertaining, and his personal experience driving extras to the various filming locations over the years gave us more insight into the locations. Plus he showed us clips from the scenes in the show on his iPad to match the locations we were about to see. Even if you are not a GOT fan, the locations we visited and the gorgeous scenery is well worth the trip. Thanks Derrick for a great tour - you're the best!!

Excellent tour - a must for Game of Thrones fans. We visited some really beautiful locations in County Down, as well as lots of recognisable locations from the TV series - such as Tollymore Forest Park, Audley's Castle, Inch Abbey and Castle Ward. The tour guide Derek was really knowledgeable and enthusiastic - I had a great time.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

A highlight of my trip. People who expect it to take you to full blown sets will be disappointed, but those who understand locations like these are a backdrop or framework upon which CGI effects added to flesh out the scene will find it fascinating. One suggestion to the tour operators -- it's very effective when you set the scene by showing a clip of the show related to the location. Do that more often and invest in top quality equipment for viewing and you'll get even better reviews. On my trip, the guide was GREAT by the way.

Very good guide, i liked the fact we did little walks on the way. I thought there would be more stuff on the way, like real game of throne set or costumes, but i guess they can't as it's not a HBO sponsored tour. Yet i liked the fact we could see the video clip of some related scenes.
