This was a fairly long trip from Dublin into Northern Ireland but worth every minute. One of our favorite excursions and our longest. Driver made enough stops so we can have breaks to stretch. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes since there is a hike to get both to the bridge and to giants causeway. SO much to see and it was a magical day with great views!! Definitely a must do if you have time!! You will not regret!

We got really lucky with the weather, but the trip would have been great otherwise. It was a long day, but it was so worth it. The Giant's Causeway is incredible. Our tour guide Leo was funny and knowledgeable, and extremely nice and friendly. We had just the right amount of time at every stop. There's a reason this tour has so many good reviews!

Fantastic Day ! Edel took us all on a magical ride north to the Giants Causeway, I was really looking forward to seeing this site, as well as the Rope bridge. Her stories and antidotes along the way were priceless.

This was a fairly long trip from Dublin into Northern Ireland but worth every minute. For me, the Giant's causeway area is a must see. There's more to it than the famous rock formations that dominate the tourist brochures. You can walk up into the surrounding mountains and get great views from the top. We were there on a clear day and there was a point where you could just see Scotland in the distance. No problem getting out on the rocks and close to the ocean. But beware, it's very windy. Excellent lunch in a local pub. The tour guide was very good - very knowledgeable about the history and folklore of Ireland.

If you're interested in the political history of the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland, take what's called a black cab tour in Belfast. Not sure why they call it that, as the tour wasn't in a black cab. It's hosted by a real local guy who grew up in the middle of what were known as the troubles 1960s to 1990s, essentially a violent city war between Catholic and Protestant factions and the British army. The guide's perspective was tilted toward the Catholic side but we got a really good feel for what it was like to grow up in that environment. The guide on the main tour bus will show you where to pick up the local tour.
