I would give this tour a 4.5. It was great to have multiple pickup locations and in convenient locations. Our guide was really great and informative about Ireland's history and points of interest on our journey to our various destinations. Our first stop was at the Titanic visitor experience they did say we could choose the Black Taxi tour however, we opted to stay with our original plan.

The Titanic Visitor Experience was a pretty good tour. It was a little disappointing in the beginning, but improved as it went on. There were some interesting parts, such as the ride, the tour of the rooms, the stories from survivors, and video of the underwater wreckage.

Next, we headed for coast, stopping first for a quick photo opt of Dunluce Castle for Game of Throne fans, before heading to our destination at Giant's Causeway. Had the rest of the trip been a big disappointment, the Giant's Causeway was worth it. The spectacular views were breathtaking. Pictures and word would not do it justice. It's an experience. The Giant's Causeway is comprised of polygonal columns of basalt that resulted from volcanic activity years ago, we're talking MILLIONS of years ago! However, I prefer the Irish legend that the rock formations were created by a giant.

Lastly, we headed to Carrick-a-Rede, a 200 year old rope bridge. While we enjoyed a fantastic day, I'm not sure I'd want to be crossing the rope bridge on a particularly windy day!! Still, the views from the island and walks around are just stunning! I was delightfully surprised that Larrybane Bay was such a pretty blue and clear. Also, a short walk is another Game of Thrones filming location for fans to check out, Larrybane Limestone Quarry.

This was an incredible day. Not nearly long enough at the Titanic Visitor Experience, but the Giants Causeway and walk across the Carrick A Rede rope bridge more than made up for that. Good tour guides and a comfortable bus made for a great experience.

Tour was excellent and our guide was fantastic. The drive takes you through some beautiful areas. In Belfast you are given the option of taking a black cap tour of the town or going to the Titanic Visitor Experience.

We did the Titanic which was very educational and went through the history of Belfast and its shipbuilding legacy. There is also an area to examine video of the Titanic as it rests now on the bottom of the ocean floor. The stories of some of those lost is truly heartbreaking.

About 2/3 of our tour chose the black cab option and I didn't hear a single one who was disappointed. They delve into the history of the troubles in Belfast and life there now.

Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede were both spectacular, but very busy. Not sure when the pictures on the internet were taken, but mine look similar if you add in about 100 other visitors to any given shot. It's definitely worth visiting though since it is a spectacular site. Carrick-a-Rede has a somewhat grueling walk out to it, but the scenery along the way makes up for that tenfold. The bridge was slightly shorter than I was thinking it would be, but every bit as high.

The bus was comfortable and had wifi available which is nice when you wish to post pics along the way.

Wild Rover Tours with Peter and Frank was AWESOME! They were very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed our time and didn't feel rushed at any of the stops. They went above and beyond to make it a memorable experience for all!

Our driver and tour guide, Sarah, was absolutely the best! She knew a lot and shared many behind the scenes tidbits. Although the day was long and a lot of time was spent on the bus, it was well worth it. Two extra tips: 1 the Rope Bridge excursion was interesting, although the bridge was much shorter and more stable than I'd expected. Stunning views. and 2 if you include the Titanic Excursion and have only 90 minutes, you will need to speed through the early economic history of shipbuilding and get to the later parts of the exhibit which finally get to the Titanic.
