This tour had just about everything I wanted to see in Northern Ireland and it was fantastic! Our driver/guide was very knowledgeable and shared information about the country and the sites we were seeing. The tour lines up perfectly so the attractions are not packed with visitors when you arrive. I had the best time and would recommend this to anyone traveling to Ireland!

This was a wonderful day trip from Dublin. Beautiful countryside and prefect weather. The walk back from visiting the Carrdick Bridge was hard due to all the stairs for an older person. This part I would not recommend to anyone with health issues

A must see attraction on your Ireland visit. Too long,, however. It took almost 14 hours. The bus driver was not very well prepared to drive and guide at the same time.

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!

This is also a place you MUST visit in Ireland. The weather was bad on the day we went--snow, sleet, and very high winds. We were disappointed that the Carrick Rope Bridge was closed due to the winds, but understood. At times, the wind rocked the van. Our guide substituted a visit to Belfast to make up for the activity we could not complete. I'm glad that I saw part of that city and learned more of its history. I wish the British would restore all the northern counties to the Republic of Ireland. I pray for a peaceful solution.

The tour was enjoyable, I enjoyed stopping at the dark hedges, the rope bridge, and Giant's Causeway. They no longer stop in Belfast recent change, but that was ok since it was a long day. The climb to get to the rope bridge is long and VERY steep: steep incline and over 100 stairs, if you have trouble walking please be advised--there was an older man in our group who was unable to do the walk, stopped halfway and went back to the bus. All in all, a very enjoyable tour.

This tour was a super long day. I loved seeing Giants Causeway, but the tour guide was not the best that I have had. We sat up towards the front of the bus and we could hear her complaining to the man that she was training about other travelers. When the tour first started, we were told that the itinerary was wrong and that we would not be going to Belfast. After many grumbles from tour goers, we did end up going to Belfast because the rope bridge was closed due to weather. The bus seats were also super small so it was hard to rest on the bus. On the way back, the tour guide didn't talk at all, just played an Ed Sheran CD on repeat. I heard each song at least twice.

Good trip, cold weather meant we couldn't visit the rope bridge. You only get about an hour in Belfast which isn't enough time to see the Titanic museum which seems that all is worth seeing there.

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.
