A must do if you are interested in the history of Belfast. We split into groups to ride in a Black Taxi Cab with a guide who shared the few sites, but each one had a significance in meaning to him. There is a large wall that you can sign, other visitors like President Clinton and the Pope. The tour made me feel sad....at 7 pm every night, a large metal gate is locked and then unlocked at 7 am to keep them separated for the night ! A quick look at where the Titanic was built and then onto the Giant's Causeway, a UNESCO site with small to very large hexagonal stones ? It is difficult to imagine that these perfect shaped stones exist in all sizes ! Our tour from Viator was assigned to Wild River Tours and they made the day in between sites. Jack was our tour guide and he was great with his stories, history and comical behavior at times. We all had a great time and great laughs. and had many quiet thoughts on our way back to our hotels. If you are one of those people who have checked off already UNESCO sites , be sure to visit Ireland and see this wonder of nature. I highly recommend this
This was a great tour, one I would recommend to anyone who wishes to see the Giant's Causeway.
Such a gorgeous part of the country, Giant's Causeway is a must on any travel list and this was a great way to see it, highly recommend!
This was a great tour, better than expected! Although you start out very early in the morning, the tour guide Peter and the drive Dell were excellent the whole day! You stop at a nice rest store for restrooms and snacks, both going and coming back which is nice. Once you get to Belfast you have a choice of doing the black cab tour or staying at the Titanic museum. We chose the Black Cab tour and it was super informative and eye opening to the existing tension in Belfast. Although, I would have loved to do both and see the Titanic Museum too, I think we made the right choice going on the Black Taxi tour. After that we drove toward the Giant's Causeway and stopped at an amazing rope bridge across the sea to a small island. It takes about 15-20 minutes to walk to it and then only 8 people can cross the bridge at a time. Even though it looks scary, I would highly encourage everyone to do it. You have an opportunity to get snacks and small souvenirs at this gift shop as well. We then went to the Giant's Causeway and we took the shuttle for 2 pounds which was well worth it to save time. We then had enough time to eat a late lunch at a small pub right at the parking lot entrance and right by the bus pick up which was convenient. We then drove for a camera stop at castle ruins that were used in the filming of Game of Thrones, House of Greyjoy. It was neat to see as the sun was setting. Then we drove back to Dublin, stopping once as mentioned before. Like I said, Peter and Dell were super informative and fun throughout the day and they were really structured with timing which made the day super efficient to see all we could in a day. I believe the company itself was called Wild Rovers? and they do 2 other day tours, one to Kilkenny which I plan to book next time!
The black cab portion of this tour was a big highlight of our visit to Ireland.
A most amazing day. Long but well organized. Combined learning experience on black cab tour with beautiful scenery in northern coast. Responsible participants so we never had to wait for stragglers. Peter was fun and shared relevant information
Peter and Bill were an absolute delight on this tour. You can tell that they both take a lot of pride in their rich and vast Irish heritage. I didn't expect to learn so much information about the history of Dublin on the way up to Belfast it was a pleasant surprise. They give you an adequate amount of time to see each of the attractions you visit. We personally did the Titanic tour over the Belfast and would highly recommend it.
I loved this tour! Belfast was lovely and the taxi cab graffiti tour was fascinating. The Giant's Causeway was a highlight, and Carrick-A-Rede was busy and scary! but so wonderful. Plus it was such a clear day we could see Scotland! Our guide was really entertaining and fantastic - I definitely recommend!
Both my husband and I aren't big for bus trips. However, this trip really changed our minds. We were so impressed with the driver and guide s on this excursion. We got so many interesting facts regarding Northern Ireland and the wonderful geography in this region. Loved the tale about the Giant's Causeway.
The stop in Belfast was either the Titanic exhibit or the Black Cab tour of the city. We chose the Black Cab. We were dropped off where our Black cab drivers and cabs were waiting. We were given a very passionate and interesting lecture about the conditions of the religious animosity there. We were shown the many murals around Belfast and stopped by the Peace Wall. Very moving experience. We then went to pick up the rest of the group at the Titanic.
The rest of the tour was dedicated to the natural beauty of Ireland. Breathtaking and not to miss... Recommend good walking shoes , rain gear and warm clothes. The coast is really windy and rain is hit/miss. No flip-flops or sandals for the Causeway because the walk is long there is a shuttle and the stones get very slippery when wet.
The rope bridge is not for faint of heart. The walk to the bridge is long no shuttles and can be steep at times. But the trip is worth it. Very windy when we were there, which made the bridge sway. There are staff there which monitors the people going across and back. Not recommended if scared of heights. I do have fear of heights and did it. It is not so bad...
Wonderful trip!!! Take it.
This was an amazing tour. The highlight was the Belfast black tour which was one of the best things ive ever experienced. Our guide was full of knowledge and kept us well informed. I would suggest spending less time at Giants Causeway as we got to Dunluce Castle after dark and couldn and #39;t see anything.
Scenery was lovely, and Belfast Black Taxi tour was interesting. A long day, but worth it.
Long trip, make sure to use all your restroom breaks : It was an amazing experience.
This was a great day trip. Conducted by Wild Rover Tours. We were promptly picked up at Starbucks by guide Peter and driver Frank. It's a very long day, but full of amazing information. Start out by driving to Belfast. You have the choice of going to the Titanic exhibit or taking the black taxi political tour which is the one we did. You spend about an hour and a half hearing about the conflict that persists today. We got to sign one of the peace walls. Then we went to the Carrick-a-Rede bridge....really beautiful but absolutely exhausting climb back up as you dont have a lot of time to delay. Lunch is at the Giant's Causeway, which is an amazing place. It was getting dark, so we couldnt see the Dunluce Castle that well and then on our way back home. Lots of stops for bio breaks and great information. I would recommend visiting this part of Ireland!
A lot of fun! Giant's Causeway was absolutely gorgeous. I would definitely go back. The rope bridge was a lot of fun to do as well!
This is a long day, but well worth your time. We saw beautiful countryside, learned a lot about the troubles and experienced Giant's causeway.
Black Taxi drivers were awesome! The beautiful views will last a life time.
One of the mesmerizing landscapes I've ever seen. It's a must do!
This trip was definately worth the time especially the black cab ride in Belfast. You get a first hand review of the unrest in that area. Definately folloow the bus drivers suggestion of a box lunch at the first comfort stop. There were not many places to get a bite. The Giant's Causeway is an amazing natural wonder and the rope bridge exciting. Be prepared to walk.
This was a fantastic day trip to take from Dublin. We had a great host and bus driver, a raw, unforgettable learning experience in Belfast, and breathtaking scenery at Giant's Causeway. I am so glad we booked this outing!
Wonderful day trip. Me and my daughter took the taxi tour in Belfast and learned a lot we didn't know about the history of the area. The Giant's causeway was a great trip. The tour guide was very informative and friendly. The only thing is make sure you can do a decent bit of walking. The tour is a bit crunched for times at certain stops. But definitely worth it.
It was very good. A great tour company and host. I would go with them again.
This was an amazing tour of Northern Ireland. The tour guide was funny and well informed. We took the Black cab tour of Belfast which was amazing. Learned a lot of about the history and still how the city is today. Rope bridge was also a lot of fun and great stop along the way.
Last but not least the Giant's causeway is amazing. Definitely a site worth seeing! Would take another tour from this company again.
Excellent. Everything went exactly as described. Buses were comfortable and had Wi-Fi, which is especially important for the last stretch. From departure to return, took 13 hours. 7am-8pm. One thing to note is that Dunluce castle is just a photo opportunity, and you only stop for gas station food.
