This was just an outstanding tour. Our driver Brian was really knowledgeable and entertaining. His knowledge of Belfast was excellent and we had a better than average experience. He allowed us time at the Causeway and then some beautiful sights of the countryside which is absolutely beautiful. We also had an excellent tour of Belfast along with a good historical perspective of Northern Ireland's place within the United Kingdom and what is going on today. It was better than average day for sure.

Brian, our coach driver and tour guide made this tour the best of all our tours. He took us to all the usual sights and then some. He gave us the history of the geography and some much more. Kud0s to Brian

Be careful on this trip as one of the pasengers slipped on the Giant Causeway and fractured her ankle. That being said this tour is amazing an well worth it.

We had amazing tour and really enjoyed every minute of it. Leigh was very knowledgeable with the history of Northern Ireland. Belfast is a beautiful city and the Giants Causeway is so worth the visit.

I am not sure what I expected from this tour. The Giants Causeway pictures that I saw were rather unusual but I though it was just another natural anomaly. When we got there it was rather hard to believe. Natural geometric shapes everywhere that you can walk on and walk up to. I would suggest, however, that you plan to take the buss back up the hill. It is a long way. The tour of Belfast was also well done. Good choice.

Excellent excursion. The Giant's Causeway was on my bucket list so I had high expectations and I wasn't disappointed. Guide and driver were terrific.

OMG - We had the best day! Val was AMAZING... informative, funny, entertaining - The day was blustery, rainy but it didn't matter because our driver/guide was the best! He had us laughing, singing, chanting and enjoying every stop along the way! Loved the countryside and would love to go back to Belfast for more touring! Thanks for a great day!

We were on the Paddywagon through Viator. We were picked up and dropped off right at the cruise pier. The driver/tour guide, Leigh, was wonderful, with boundless knowledge about the history of Ireland. The bus was nice and comfortable and was easy to recognise. The sight of the Giant's Causeway was wonderful. I would recommend visitors bring along a poncho in case it rains and Irish weather is totally unpredictable and umbrellas are no match with the wind. Proper footwear is a must.The restaurant where lunch was organised for the group was efficient, food was good, hot and totally inexpensive. The tour of Belfast at the end of the tour was also wonderful.
Like the rest on the bus, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and it was money well spent.
If you have just one day to do shore excursion at Belfast, I highly recommend this tour.
