I couldn and #39;t make it on this trip but I have to say that Viator has the best customer service. I would use this company wherever their services are available.
It was a wonderful day trip from Dublin. The time spent in Belfast was so informative and at the same time very sad. The black cab fellas really made the talk personal and yet objective. It was a very learning experience. The Giant's Causeway was beautiful until I fell off the rock path and landed on a pile of rocks. Can you say ouch. My left arm and back are still very sore. I highly recommend this tour because it's both educational with the added bonus of nature's beauty.
Well worth going on this trip, informative, beautiful scenery,comfortable traveling on the bu...good experience.
Really enjoyed this tour with Wild River Tours. JP, our guide, and Jack, our driver, made the day fun as well as very interesting. We went to the Titanic Experience first, then the Giants Causeway and the Carrick A Rede Rope Bridge. Had plenty of time at each stop to be able to explore and take a lot of pictures. Highly recommend this tour.
I had a great time! Our driver and tour guide, Derek and Peter, were very professional and friendly. It was a long day but definitely worth the money. The black cab tour in Belfast was informative and educational and the Giant's Causeway was just amazing. I'd highly recommend this tour to everyone!
This tour was absolutely amazing! Our tour guide was informative and extremely passionate about the history of Ireland. We make several stops on our way up to Northern Ireland, having the opportunity to see many different areas. I also loved that we had the option to either go to the Titanic Museum or take a Black Taxi tour in Belfast. We did the Black Taxi tour and I have to say, it was incredible! We learned so much from that tour and loved the authenticity of our tour guides. Northern Ireland is absolutely beautiful! Even though the tour is an all day thing, it is worth it. I would absolutely recommend this tour and would probably go on it again the next time I'm in Ireland.
This was an excellent trip. Our guide and coach driver, Richard, was wonderful - educational and funny. The sights were amazing, Highly recommend the black taxi tour in Dublin and the Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede bridge are just gorgeous. A wonderful day!

As a day trip from Dublin, this tour was very affordable and well worth it. Our tour guide Yoan from Wild Rover Tours was very personable and kept the bus entertained during the drive. He also was very informative about all of the places we visited. On this trip you spend several hours on the bus, but the trip is broken up into several segments, so it is manageable.
In Belfast, you get a choice between the Black Cab Tour or the Titanic Museum -- the vast majority of people chose the Black Cab Tour, which is what I also did. This 40 minute tour provides an up close and honest tour of the conflicts between the Protestants and Catholics within Belfast, the true reasonings behind the troubles, and an optimistic view of the current situation. The murals and the wall were very moving to see in person, and I highly recommend it. You get dropped back off at the Titanic Museum, so you still have an opportunity to see the interesting exterior of the museum as well as its gift shop.
After a beautiful drive along the coast, your next stop is the Giants Causeway. There is plenty of time here to climb over all the basalt columns that make up the natural wonder, and its the highlight of the day. Afterwards, make sure you opt for the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, as it is a unique experience to cross the rope bridge and see some excellent coastal views. It's not a scary crossing at all, but there tends to be a bit of a wait to cross, so try not to dawdle too long.
From there, it's a long and exhausting drive back to Dublin, but after all the sights you've experienced throughout the day, it's a good time to take a nap and relax, knowing you had a memorable day!
The guide/bus driver was fabulous. She informed us in an entertaining way and she stopped talking long enough for us to enjoy the scenery. She recommended pubs for dinner at the end of the journey which was very helpful. I would take any tour she was in charge of. We enjoyed both the black cab tour and the Giant's Causeway. Wish we had had more time in Belfast on the black cab tour and more information. It was rushed and our cab seemed to be late at each stop and we missed part of the tour.
Great tour! Well worth the money we spent. Perfect weather added to our perfect day. Derek and Peter were exceptional hosts for the tour with some added humour that was most enjoyable. Many thanks to all!
This was a fantastic trip made even better by the great bus driver and tour guide. Our tour guide/bus driver was funny, full of knowledge about the Irish, the country and even things to do and see once we returned to Dublin. Just a tip, if you have more than one place to be picked up for your tour, choose the earliest even if it is not the closest to where you are staying. If you wait to be picked up at the last stop, there are very few seats left. We were a group of 2 couples but there were no seats even close together. My husband and I had to sit in the very back seats of the bus, there are no arm rests and there are 5 seats across. A little uncomfortable for such a long ride.
Great tour. Very informative and the views are amazing. Definitely a must do if you are looking for a day trip.
The Black Taxi tour in Belfast was informative and sad. I knew a little about The Troubles but this part of the tour gave me a better perspective. The rest of the tour up to the Giant's Causeway was fabulous. The weather was absolutely spectacular. Bright sun and blue skies made the coastal drive unbelievable. It was so clear we could see mainland Scotland. Wild Rover Tours did a good job. Be warned it is a long day, close to 14 hours.
this trip was great! the sites were interesting and I like the little mixture of nature giant's causeway and culture the tour of the troubles in Belfast. It's always great if you can get a mixture of both in a day. The bus ride was very comfortable, it wasn't full so you had a lot of room and the scheduling was perfect. Our guide told us when to get things so that we can plan a picnic or plan for the next bathroom break. But besides the sites that we saw the bus travels itself was quite interesting because our guide Peter talked about everything that has to do Ireland, the Irish culture people, and the language. Including how they use turf, irish sports, slang words, where in town to find live music etc etc...It was very informative and very interesting! I highly recommend this tour! We went there for a cousin's wedding, and I even drove to Ring of Kerry for 3 days but the favorit thing we did in Ireland was this tour!
We had a great tour to Belfast from Dublin! The Tour Guide and Bus driver were great. We particularly loved the Black Taxi Cab tour in Belfast, what an eye opener! The Giants Causeway was cool, and the Carrick Bridge amazing. Wish the weather was better, but thats how it is in Ireland. Overall, highly recommend Wild Rover Tours and it was easy booking through Viator, would definitely book another trip.
The Titanic Museum was fantastic. The causeway and rope bridge were unique.
Great tour!!!! The tour guide was thoughtful, informative, funny, everything you could ask for!!! It was worth every penny, and a fabulous way to see so much in one day! Motor coach was comfortable, we were able to leave our belongings in our seat when we got out of the bus. Tour guide spoke all along the drive whenever there was anything significant to point out. He gave recommendations for lunch, and was very clear about where to go and what time and where to return to the bus. Belfast black taxi tour was fabulous, and the scenery at the Giants Causeway and the Rope Bridge was breathtaking. Opportunity for short hikes at both! My favorite day in Ireland!!
Fabulous. Viator agent helped us via phone to get our name on manifest and on board without a printed voucher, which they faxed to our hotel that didn't have an operating fax machine.
Thank yu so much for the added help. This was our most favorite tour in our two week stay!
