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.
Tour was awesome!! Our guide Richard was fun and very knowledgeable as was our driver Jack. Loved the political tour of Belfast. Giant and #39;s Causeway was unique and gorgeous! The Antrim coast is just beautiful. Carrick-a-rede bridge was scary but very cool. The view made it worth it.
Fantastic. Recommended. The black cabs drivers and guides exceptional. Great panoramas.
I would highly recommend to anyone going to Ireland to go to Belfast and take the Black Taxi Tour. Our tour guide, Paul, was exceptional in his knowledge and passion for the history and present day circumstances in Belfast. We were fortunate to have booked our tour for July 12th, not knowing the significance of this date, but were rewarded by experiencing the parade commemorating the Battle of the Boyne with much celebration in the Protestant neighborhood and empty streets in the Catholic neighborhood. Having grown up with news reports from Belfast during 'The Troubles, this tour gave a reality to those events and gave hope that progress has been made over the years and hopefully will continue. Thank you, Paul for an awesome day! The Giants Causeway was well worth the visit to see such a geological phenomenon.
A very good day out - we had an excellent guide, Yoan, who was knowledeagble/entertaining/caring. The timing of the trips to various locations was well planned, including the coffee/toilet breaks. We had lunch at an excellent valued restaurant at the Giants Causeway as recommended by Yoan and the whole day was really enjoyable. Congratulations.
It was definitely worth the long day. The black cab tour of Belfast was extremely interesting and our guide very knowledgeable
The taxi tour was fantastic. We learned so much and the taxi drivers/tour guides were great. The Giants Causeway was beautiful. Scenery along the way was amazing. Richard our guide and John the driver were friendly and gave us lots of information.
Loved this trip! The driver was knowledgeable and friendly. We had plenty of time at each of the sites. Belfast was so fascinating. I recommend the Black Taxi tour (but I didn and #39;t go on the Titanic option so maybe those people would recommend that).
The tour was excellent, pity about the weather!!
The tour guide and driver would look more professional with some sort of a uniform.
They were excellent communicators.
This was one of our favorite days in Ireland. We had a great guide and driver who made the day very memorable.
Great day tour. Amazing landscape! Jack our driver stepped in as our guide as well. We were very lucky to be on the tour that day because Jack made the day. Funny and knowledgable.
Loved it. The Black Taxi tour was super interesting and our driver lived through the troubles and told us firsthand about it. Giants causeway was cold and rainy but very interesting.
Fantastic day! Anthony, our guide, and John, the driver, were terrific companions. Anthony was personable, funny, and full of great bits of information throughout the trip and kept everything on a tight schedule so that we were able to see everything. You might think there is no way to do all of this in one day, but Anthony made it happen and we had plenty of time to enjoy each site. Our cabbie in Belfast, Patrick was terrific as well. So engaging and we learned so much from him and the places he took us. My only complaint was that the lunch spot the Nook at the Giant's Causeway was unable to handle the crowds and we wound up with only a scone for lunch. But we made do. We were having such a great time. I highly recommend this tour.
It was so interesting to learn of the troubled history of Northern Island from the local Black Cab drivers.
