    Very enjoyable tour at a fraction of the price of the ship's shore excursion. So glad we took it. Saw many sights on the way to the Causeway and sights and towns on the way home. The Belfast City Tour was very interesting. Our guide was excellent and answered all our questions. He was a lot of fun. Would recommend this tour. It was a long day, but the bus was comfortable and we fitted a lot into the 8 hours.

    The tour was wonderful. The bus was right there by the ship to pick us up. Great places we visited and driver was very informative.

    It is the same kind of tour organized by the cruise company but about half the price. The only concern is the time when the ship docked. There are about 2 to 3 thousands guests try to embark and the tour bus may not wait for you. Otherwise it is well worth the money spend. If the Causeway is too windy or you are tired to walk back, you can line up and take the bus. The bus driver will take either Euro or US dollars.

    Steve was very hospitable and very informative about the life during the “troubles”and the story behind the peace wall. The tour to the castle was short and giant Causeway was too long. Lunch break was too late and was angered me was the restaurant recommendation had a short menu that was priced higher than the regular menu! Otherwise the tour was good to get a flavor of Belfast and it’s surro.

    We really enjoyed the tour of the countryside, Causeway and City Tour. Some of our route had to be altered due to the area being prepared for the British Open golf tournament but no big deal. You probably would not want to do this tour if the weather forecast was not good. Lots of walking to properly see the Causeway. Good insights to the past Belfast problems by the guide. Things are really looking up.

    This was a fantastic tour. We saw a lot of beautiful Irish countryside with the highlight being the Giant Causeway. Nice to walk among the basalt rocks and the hike up along the cliffs. David was amongst our favourite tour guides not only for his extensive knowledge of Belfast and area (never took a political side when discussing the Troubles) but his endless humour made the whole tour experience that much more enjoyable.

    David our driver/guide was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed the excursion and it was well worth the money, which was much less expensive and much better than the cruise line could provide.

    This was a great tour, less expensive than the cruise ship and we saw just as much from talking to other passengers on the ship. Lunch stop at Harry's was very good as well
    Our guide and driver were top notch, meeting at the cruise port was great and they were right on time, 5 stars for sure
