We spent our first day on the bus tour. Although very informative we didn't find it as good as the other city tours we have been on. But the Giants causeway/Bushmills and Carrick a Rede rope bridge tour made up for this. Allen Beck was our driver and kept us informed and amused all day long. I can't recommend this... More

Extremely friendly staff, both enclosed and open decked buses to suit all weathers, we spent a rainy afternoon seeing Belfast from the top deck of a very clean bus (clean windows a must). Travelling routes that you may feel uncomfortable going through in your own car, there was a decent audio service explaining events from the island's troubled history. Lots... More

I took two visitors on a bus tour of Belfast. One was Swedish, the other English. We all had to concentrate very hard to hear what our tour guide Lisa was saying. She spoke too close to the microphone so the words were not clear. (We did ask her to reduce the volume to see if that helped.) She also... More

We where a group of 14 people, ages 65 thru 6 , traveling on a cruise ship and visiting Belfast for 12 hours. We booked a private tour that took us to the Giant Causeway and the Antrim Coast. For most of us this was the best tour of our trip. The bus was in excellent condition, the driver was... More

Our cruise ship stopped at Belfast as a replacement stop and how lucky were we? We decided on the hop on hop off bus to get a general overview of the city and as a mode of transport to get us to the Titanic Centre. Our guide, Brian, was so amusing and incredibly informative that we decided to stay with... More

Thoroughly recommend this trip. There is so much to see, and the commentary from the guides is very informative, even down to opening times / entry costs etc., It seems that your ticket is valid for 2 days at £12.50 (adult), although we found out later, hence, only used our ticket for 1 day - so make the most, and...

We booked a combination sightseeing tour and trip to the Giants Causeway last week. It was a very reasonable £27.50 each for two days sightseeing and the coach tour to the Giants Causeway. The company was very helpful and picked us up at our hotel for the Causeway tour. This tour took in a few stops, including a couple of... More

This is a brilliant hop on and hop off tour, really good value too as the ticket is valid for 48 hours, the tour guides were brilliant, each had their own way of telling you about the attractions and sights along the way. A must for every visitor.
