The 2-hour drive brings you to the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Giant’s Causeway. Stretch your legs and enjoy a meander through this geological wonder that has been the source of many Irish myths. Then punctuate your tour of the north with an invigorating walk across the teetering, 80-foot-high (24-meter) Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (not for the faint-hearted!). After you’ve had your adrenaline boost for the day (or year), get cozy in your coach seat for the return ride back to central Dublin.

this was such a great experience. we enjoyed very much our trip to Belfast. we opted for the Belfast taxi tour and we learned so much about the city. though it was a sad story, it really opened up our eyes to something that we never new about let alone learn in school. a good amount of people opted for the titanic tour, but at the end of the day, we all know what happened with the ship, why not learn something and get a guide from a local. as i read some of the reviews, some may say that they felt rushed while on our destinations, but for us we felt that we were given the right amount of time in each place. the bridge was a bit scary but also enjoyable. it was quite windy that day so beware, the bridge may be canceled if its too rainy for safety reasons, but there are still beautiful walk ways and views to admire. the avenue of the giants was really interesting and very windy. be prepared to walk up and down hills to get to the giants. there is a shuttle provided for those that don't do well with elevated pathways. there wasn't a specific time where you could go somewhere and sit down to eat a full meal. i would recommend to bring sandwiches with you as your time for eating will be while on the road getting from one place to another. the main places to buy food would be at rest stops and cafes. our tour guide was very informative and what i enjoyed about this company is towards the end of the trip the guides will give great recommendations on what to do in Dublin such as entertainment and food. great trip to explore outside Dublin and a great way to see the countryside! so green and so much sheep. enjoy!

Although I had been to Dublin many times, I had never been outside of the city. This was a great adventure, history and absolutely beautiful countryside. The Giant's Causeway was amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable along with hilarious and our bus driver navigated the narrow curvy roads with the skill of a race driver.

I took this tour and it was an extremely long day. I think when you see 13.5 hours you know it's a long time, but it doesn't hit you until you're on it how long the tour is. This tour was conducted by a woman named Kim and the bus drivers name was Syd. They both were excellent. Syd was a consummate professional and a good sport for Kim's quips about him. Kim has the lulling voice of a radio DJ and I would listen to her read the bible backwards, excellent voice. She was knowledgeable and friendly. I would possibly rework the itinerary to not make this day overly long as I felt it took away from the tour. Other then the length of day, it was a good tour.

This trip may try to cover too much territory or perhaps we were just tired after just finishing a 10 day CIE tour of Ireland but we are glad we went. The bus was full and the weather cold and windy. We are really glad we did the Black Taxi tour of Belfast. Our guide was well-informed and gave us insight into the history of the city and stopped at several of the sites and walls. Next stop was the Giant's Causeway which was the main reason we took the tour. Incredible site on the rugged coast of Northern Ireland. We took the guided walk and braved the wind and cold but opted to not go all the way down to the next stop at the rope bridge and enjoyed hot tea and soup in the cafe there. The locations do take credit cards but not Euro's and this should have been explained before the tour. Trip was a long day and not for anyone who has trouble walking. Quick stops kept us moving. Our biggest complaint was that we arrived back in Dublin in the dark and rain and they let us off at a different location than we left from. Michael, our guide, said he would help us get a cab but he was busy talking to others so luckily we found a nice Irish man who helped us and good cabbie to take us back to our hotel which was a long way away from the tour stop. Paddy the bus driver did a great job maneuvering the big bus through the country side.

This was a wonderful day trip out of Dublin. It was nice to let someone else do the driving so that we could sit back and relax. The bus driver's commentary was very informative and we learned so much ahead of our arrival in Belfast. Once in Belfast, our taxi driver continued the history lesson. Truly a must when you visit Ireland! The Giant's Causeway and Rope Bridge were amazing and just the right amount of time was allotted to see everything at a relaxed pace.

My husband and I chose this trip for the price and sites...we are also big Game of Thrones fans so that was a huge plus. Our guide was friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. I loved that we had the freedom to choose what tours to do as well as the freedom to explore each place together rather than in a group. We are still talking about all the Irish mythology and folklore we learned on the trip. We LOVED the Fynn MaCool story! That was such a bonus since we both thought it would just be a bus ride only. The bus was clean and comfy so the drive was long but tolerable. I highly recommend this tour as the Giant's Causeway alone was enough to take our breath away...but the Carrick-a-Reed rope bridge was FUN!
