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!
We had a great time on this tour with Richard and Derek. The tour guide was very informative and pointed out lots of sites along the way particularly Game of Thrones locations that weren't officially part of the tour. We had just the right amount of time in each location. The Belfast Taxi tour was amazing, I was astounded by the wall and the memorials to folks who were armed militia during that time. We will go back again. .
Well this must have been the only country I have traveled to where I give everyone in the country a 10/10. So friendly and clean. Just loved it. I guess the highlight was taking a day tour. If I had known they were so great I would have booked more such tours.
This was a first-rate large bus tour. Everything was as advertised and consistent with other reviews - bring snacks or food although you will have chances to buy. Don't worry about restroom breaks :- - there are plenty. Our driver Sarah and guide Yoan were great - a lot of fun and informative as well. We took the Black Cab tour of Belfast and I can't recommend it highly enough. It is as objectively done as possible and it's a bit like watching living history - a sobering experience for sure. Then there was the Giants Causeway and the rope bridge. Great scenery and you could get as much or as little exercise as you wanted. Back to Dublin on time. A definite must-do tour.
Great Tour. Everything was organized and very punctual without feeling rushed. The views around the rope bridge were stunning and the Giant's Causeway was a beautiful area although a bit busy the day we were there. The highlight for me was the taxi tour through Belfast. The drivers all live in the area and have been touched personally by the Troubles and are able to convey some of the issues from their personal experience.
Best tour of all I took. History of Belfast is mind boggling. I learned so much. Highlight for my entire Ireland trip however was Giant's Causeway - most magical geological visit I have ever had! Loved it!
A great day trip. Wild Rover operated the tour, the tour guide and the driver were punctual, professional and entertaining. I especially liked the black taxi tour of Belfast where local taxi drivers and residents of the two neighbourhoods told us first-hand about the conflict. This tour is a definite recommendation for anyone in Dublin who also wants to see Northern Ireland, but has little time.
The guide was Richard and driver was Nigel
My son and I had one overnight and or choice was to do this tour and it was FREAKIN GREAT!!!!!
The locations, the journey, stories and sunny day made it HEAVEN-
What a Great Day. Our guide Yoan was both entertaining and provided a tremendous overview of the history of this region of the world. Breathtaking views at the Giants Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.The story of Belfast's conflicts and seeing its ornate murals was thought provoking. Our driver sarah also was very nice and helpful.
Very interesting guides with lots of anecdotes to share. Gorgeous sceneries despite the misty rains.
Awesome day. Johan, the tour guide and David the driver did an excellent job all day long. It was informative and enjoyable. The Belfast Black Taxi tour was quite enlightening. Our taxi driver's up-close and personal perspective was eye-opening. Definitely worth the trip!
This tour is a great way to see the north of Ireland from Dublin. It doesn't take long on the motorway to get to Belfast but the stop at the applegreen rest area was a great place to buy sandwiches so that we didn't waste any time in a restaurant for lunch. The Black Taxi drivers took us to Belfast's Peace Wall area of the city. We toured the Protestant side and heard about their fallen leaders then stopped by the Peace Wall where they explained it's purpose and we were given pens to write on the wall. We then toured the catholic area and heard about their fallen leaders. All in all this was a very good overview of the troubles well presented. The cab drivers are both Protestant and Catholic and each was given a turn to talk about their history. We ate on the bus as we headed to the Giants Causeway. Our very capable guide, Richard, kept us entertained with the scientific and folklore versions of how it got there. We had plenty of time to hike around and over the volcanic rocks which are truly unusual. We made our way to the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge which I did not cross but the rest of our party did and were enthusiastic about it. The area has some very pleasant trails and a very small gift shop/snack bar for those who stay grounded. Our trip back to Dublin went very well. There is an option on this tour to visit the Titanic Museum instead of the Black Taxi portion but none of our party did that. Richard was a lively and amusing guide which helped a lot with the driving portions of the tour. I highly recommend this tour for those who want to hear about the troubles from people on both sides who lived through it.
An absolutely amazing tour! Definitely do the Black Taxi Tour option. Highly recommend this tour!
The guide was informative and the variety of places very good.
We loved the Belfast Taxi Tour, the drivers were like real tourist guides. You can ask them anything and they are totally informed.
We didnt have any trouble with the pickup. it was as stated in the instructions received once you book the tour. The bus is absolutely comfortable.
