Overnight accommodation, breakfast, and round-trip train transport from Dublin is included.
Incredible tour. Loved the tour guide. The Giant's Causeway is one of the greatest natural places to see in the world.
Our tour guide Derek made this tour so much better. He has a great sense of humour and is so knowledgeable about everything Game of Thrones
The first class train ride from Dublin to Belfast was uneventful. They did charge for everything including coffee and tea. When we arrived in Belfast we were directed to a Coach and were taken to our hotels to drop off luggage. They then gave us passes for the Hop On/Hop Off bus. We decided to go to visit the Titanic Experience. Recommend it if you are a Titanic buff. The next day we enjoyed breakfast at the hotel and were picked up to start our tour. Our guide Derick was awesome and very entertaining. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Recommend this excursion even if you are not a Game of Thrones fan like us. We went on the tour with our friends that we were traveling with. Now we will be binge watching GoT! Thanks Derick!!!!
This tour was truly one of the highlights of my 12 day trip to Ireland! I should also say that I was a 32 year old single female traveling alone, and I was VERY cautious about what tours and trips I wanted to book. I selected this tour over a less expensive tour of similar locations and I am happy to say that I made the correct choice. The train ride to Belfast wasn't too long and had amazing scenery. I stayed at the Europa and they even let me check in early to catch a much needed nap before exploring the city. I took advice, from everyone, and did the Black Taxi Tour. I very much enjoyed it although I have heard that it depends very much on the driver and what their and your political/ religious backgrounds may be. This was not my experience at all, but family members that went two days later seemed to encounter this issue. The location of the Europa was perfect and I was able to walk across the street to the Crown Bar and then walked around to different restaurants and bars. The bars inside the Europa had excellent views and were very nice for a nightcap before bed!
The tour itself was AMAZING. Derek was the absolute best! Unsurprisingly, his knowledge of tv and film extended far past GoT and I was able to speak with him during the non- narrated part of the tour at length about several other shows and movies that we had in common. Being the biggest GoT fan on the bus, probably helped! But with that being said, you absolutely do not need to be a fan of the show to take this tour. The locations were absolutely amazing, and this tour hit almost every location in Northern Ireland that I wanted to see! Lunch at the Fullerton Arms was also great, and I found some other lonely travelers to enjoy a drink or two. I highly recommend making friends on the tour I wish I would have earlier in the day or the day before!
If you are on the fence about this tour, my advice is to book it! I was on this tour in May and I am currently creating large canvases for my walls from some of the pictures taken on this trip. If you have any doubts- just check out my pictures!
We had a great day with Derek who was the most enthusiastic guide we have ever had on a tour! Highly recommend!!
Awesome day! We enjoy seeing the sites where Game of Thrones was filmed. The Giant's Causeway was amazing to see.
Derrick was a fabulous guide. He made sure we get to see all the stops and even threw in few extra ones. It clearly shows he's a big fan of the show.
We absolutely recommend this to everyone! Very fun trip!
LOTS AND LOTS of walking to get to most of the sites, so worth it! It rained the day we were on the tour but it didn't matter since we still saw everything, including Scotland at a distance.
Absolutely amazing! Beautiful locations, a driver/tour guide who knows a looooot about the show and talks about it all day long. Expensive, but definitely worth it!!
This was the highlight of my trip to Ireland. I was torn between booking this trip and a much cheaper 2 day trip to Northern Ireland that I found which was bus based. Ultimately I bit the bullet and paid more for this one, as that had mediocre reviews and this one had excellent reviews, and I did not regret it.
You start on a lovely train ride north to Belfast, and then are checked into your hotel. After that, you climb aboard the complimentary hop on hop off bus tour, which you are recommended to not hop off of in the first cycle, so that you can get a full tour of Belfast. The tour is great, with excellent commentary on the city and its turbulent history. Then you go to the Titanic Museum, also included with this trip. I thought it sounded lame that Belfast's crowning attracting was a Titanic museum, but I understimated the quality of the museum. It's truly top notch and state of the art as museums go, and it's huge.
After that, you're on your own! I did a solo trip to Ireland, but hooked up with a group of other youngsters and spent the rest of the day exploring the city, going to pubs, and having a great time. While I would have spent less money and stayed at a hostel if that were an option, once the money was already spent, I must admit I was very pleased with the luxury of the hotel, by my standards at least. An Irish breakfast buffet is included.
Then the 7 of us who had been on the train to Belfast joined a larger group on the coach game of Thrones tour. It was the best of the several bus tours I took in Ireland. The tour guide was funny, informative, and impressed me with his Game of Thrones knowledge. I also spoke to a man on the tour who didn't watch the show but still enjoyed himself. We went to at least 10 stops covering all 6 seasons so far, plus the Giant's Causeway and the Carick-a-rede rope bridge, not from the show. The amount they packed into this trip dwarfed every other day trip I took in Ireland. Truly top notch and worth the price!
We LOVED this tour. Belfast and sightseeing was great and getting to where we needed to go was very smooth, easy and carefully planned. We really didn't have to worry about anything. The Game of Thrones tour was AWESOME. This was the highlight of our entire Ireland trip. Derrick was a fantastic guide and you can tell he is very much a fan of the show. It was really great to be able to visit the places featured in the show and the Giants Causeway is simply wonderful. We will be raving about this tour to all of our friends.
