Giant's causeway is a must see. Ian was our tour guide and he is excellent. But do not buy the City Tour Hop on Hop off tickets from Allen's tours. They sold me a combo ticket with a good deal but the neither of the city tour buses honoured it I had to buy another ticket from City Tours buses.

Before booking the tour I was promised I wouldn't miss my train back to dublin but we did because the bus broke down which I'm aware isn't their fault but when I asked them if they would pay for my bus back they said yes. The whole time I kept making sure that they would and finally at the end... More

This tour was absolutely amazing! I was lucky to have Ian as my tour guide, friendliest man you'll ever meet. He educated me about the history, culture and landscape of Northern Ireland and Ireland while cursing along the beautiful coast. The stops we had were amazing and the tour ran extremely smooth! Thank you Ian and Allen's Tours!

We booked onto the giants causway tour, the weather was pretty grim, cold and raining, or as ian the tour driver reminded us it was on fact ' liquid sunshine'! My hopes of seeing anything of the Antrim coast were fairly low. However the drive was breathtaking, and although the vistas were somewhat limited they were still pretty spectacular. We... More

This was the highlight of our Belfast visit. A friend booked the tour for us. We were picked up from our hotel by around 10 AM. Frankly the first look of the tour bus was not very appealing. The seats could have been more comfortable considering that we would be spending most of the day in them. Notwithstanding this we... More

Went on the causeway tour last Sunday, this was a last minute decision. Asked at hotel reception at 09.00 , allens were recommended so picked us up at 10.00. Bit unsure what to expect as I normally like to do these sort of things independently. Anyway Ian our driver was nonstop with information and jokes the day absolutely flew by.... More

Each time I visit Belfast I take an open-top bus tour of the city and this was the best so far. Every one has been different depending on the tour guide and this year the guide really knew his stuff! Impossible to take in every detail as there is so much information. One of the good things he did was... More

The driver made this tour exceptional. His vast knowledge and wonderful stories kept people listening, laughing and enjoying the day. I would highly recommend this tour company.
