We travelled to Belfast for a day visit and pre booked the open top bus tour. We picked it up at the Titanic Centre and got off at the city centre for lunch then back on to finish the tour. Both tour guides were very informative, injecting a little humour into their script too. We all learned a lot about... More

We had a great day touring with Belfast city sight seeing. We had a large group of family on a cruise, and we were picked up at the port promptly in a very nice air conditioned van. Our guide Tommy was delightful and added so much to the experience. He had so much knowledge of the area we were touring... More

A beautiful city full of history, a pleasure to visit, the old 'entrys' in the city were amaizing, the buildings , the sloping clock tower, titanic museum so much to see. And to top it all Game of Thrones is being filmed there.

We did the Hop-on Hop-off bus in Belfast. We don't usually do them because we find them a bit overpriced and restrictive, but this one was excellent value! We did the 48 hour ride which enabled us to visit all the places of interest. The 1st time we did the whole circuit. For our 2nd ride we stopped off at... More

we got off the cruise ship in Belfast and when we got into town we were bombarded by people on the street to get onto the hop on busses -- we stood in line for 1 1/2 hours before the first bus arrived which they said ran every 20 minutes -- we got on and when we got up to... More

Hi rdster I am very concerned to hear of your experiences during your visit to Belfast. Unfortunately it appears that you have chosen another company in Belfast that operate black buses on their open top service. As we are part of the global CitySightseeing found in over 100 cities all our vehicles are red. The company that you chose are... More

Tour took about 1.5 hours which is just about right. You can hop on and hop off at 20 stops. Tickets lasts for 2 days which is a bonus. Fascinating commentary on both trips with a good touch of humour each time.

Completed tour as part of #worldhost training. Ed was a fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful with tourists. Stops have changed & he made sure people knew where they were going! Really enjoyable and will bring my aussie & californian visitors to see the city in this way :) thanks for a #marvelousmemory.

This is not the best of its kind but used wisely the two day ticket is good value for money. There are two issues. Firstly the on board commentators are so busy doing their talk that most don’t give adequate warning or in some cases even announce the coming stops at all(one young woman was brilliant and told us 3...

It’s a great way to get an overview of the city and, while not as fast, is cheaper than a cab. You get 2 days. The only problem is that the stops are not well marked, so if you want to get on someplace other than where you got off, you aren’t sure whether you are in the right place... More
