One of the best highlights of our trip to Ireland was with Stephen Brown of City and Causeway Tours. He picked up a group of six of us at the port in Belfast Ireland for an exciting all day excursion of the Antrim Coast which included: Giants Causeway, Antrim Coast, Bushmills Distillery, Dunluce Castle, and Carrick Rope Bridge plus an...

My girlfriend and I had a great morning sail with Chris on his 30ft sail boat. Neither of us had much previous experience sailing. Chris was a great teacher and has a wealth of sailing knowledge as well as local knowledge. We sailed from Ballycastle to Rathlin Island and back. It was a fantastic way to view the wonderful scenery... More

Had a relaxing, fun day and learnt some interesting things about sailing and the sea. We'd 2 teenagers with us who both enjoyed the experience and didn't complain once! Chris was easy-going and it was obvious that he enjoys his work. He gave us all tasks to do and explained different aspects of sailing. We'd highly recommend this unique experience... More

I had organised a half day sailing experience for my partner's 50th birthday and we arrived filled with excitement and if I'm honest I was a wee bit nervous. Captain Chris appeared at the appointed time and place and off we went to be fitted with life vests and receive our safety brief. Chris immediately put me at ease and... More

Booked an hour and half sailing experience with Chris for 3 of us. We all have been sailing many times before and enjoyed this trip immensely. Chris was a great host as well as a calm and patient instructor. This was especially important in the strong winds we had that day. The Evenstar was a excellent boat extremely well equipped,...

My husband and I booked a half day (morning) sail with interest in getting some sailing lessions along with scenery of the coast. The weather was a bit rainy when we first went out, but the sun did come out and we got some really good sailing (and pictures) in! Chris was great! He was friendly, entertaining and a great...

We have many hours sailing experience but still picked up lots of tips from Chris,he has lots of experience and can teach a novice or experienced sailors alike.We sailed upto Ballintoy and around sheep Island and the views were amazing,so don't forget your camera.The price for the trip was well worth the money,and it was fun from start to finish.

Upon arrival Chris' guests are made to feel welcome and a part of the team straight away. I'm not a sailor or au fait with sailing jargon but with Chris I felt that I could manage. I was given just enough responsibility to feel that I was contributing but not enough to feel over whelmed. The relaxed atmosphere and delightful... More
