The concept is perfect - a sightseeing bus with a live narration by a knowledgeable guide which allows you to hop off at any one of the many points on the route and then hop on when the bus comes back around. But it's not so good in reality when the driver leaves five passengers standing in the cold rain... More

If you are limited for time a bus tour is excellent to see the sights of Dublin. Sights include Phoenix park (Hyde park could fit in there 6 times!!!), Guiness factory, Jamieson factory, dublin zoo, Half penny bridge and much much more.

Worst people in the world are those who live in a historical city and know nothing about it. So people of Belfast get on your local bus tours and learn something. Tourists welcome too!

A great experience, I had a friend over from England and thought this would be a great way to see the main sights rather than do it myself. The tour covers all parts of the city and the guide keeps things humorous and informative, also it stops around the city to get off and on again. Would recommend to both... More

This was an excellent tour and very informative, a very humbling and emotional experience in some parts. The tour guides are excellent and have a wonderful sense of humour - the language lessons were hilarious. So good I did it twice! One of the best city sightseeing tours I've experienced.
