    Paul, our driver, showed us all around the wonderful sites of Northern Ireland. While the weather forced the closure and suspension of some parts of the tour, it was still well worth the time and price to experience the remaining parts.

    Mum and I had a lovely day out. Paul, our driver and guide was excellent as was Steven at Giants Causeway. So much is packed into this day if you’ve only got a short time in Belfast. Coastal route back to city was beautiful.

    Ten of us ladies visited the Giant's Causeway with Odyssey Tours with Paul as our guide. It was an amazing day out and a "must see" for any visitors. Paul was a great tour guide and we had plenty of time to see the dark hedges, Dunluce Castle, the Causeway, Carrick rope bridge and still had time on the beautifully scenic drive back to stop for an ice cream. Really great value for money and I would do it again in a heart beat.

    Giant's Causeway is beautiful and interesting. But it was impossible to take a picture there without MANY strangers in it. It was so crowded! If I ever go again it will be during the least busy season, definitely not summer! The guided tour was lovely and we saw many beautiful things. The tour guide Lindsay was awesome and very knowledgeable. He even let me borrow his rain jacket because I had forgotten mine.

    Great tour but sadly it was a very wet day ... what's new in Northern Ireland ??? .... However the tour was really good and was especially so because of the great commentary and humour of our driver/guide Paul. The various locations are some of the most beautiful in Northern Ireland. Although I am very familiar with all the places, my friends were not and they were amost overwhelmed by the beauty which changes so rapidly in such a tiny country.

    Les sites et les paysages valent sans aucun doute un 5/5. Le guide était davantage un conducteur d'autobus qu'un guide. Malgré le fait qu'il était peu locace, nous avons passé une excellente journée!
