“Don't leave Belfast without getting on board a bus tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

I had a few hours to spare in Belfast and was approached by someone about one of these tours. I'm quite skeptical about street vendors but at £10 for a tour viewing all the sights in Belfast, I couldn't refuse. TOP TIPS: 1) Take a good camera with a zoom lens 2) Sit on the top level of the bus 3) Take a warm jumper/jacket 4) Sit near the front of the bus so you can hear the commentary

In summary we saw the City Hall, the new Titanic centre and dock, the Odyssey complex, Stormont, Crumlin Road Jail, Shankill Road, The Peace wall, Falls Road, Queen's University and lots of murals. If I'd had more time I would have got off at various stops but just staying on and seeing from the bus was excellent.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

we decided to do the bus tour as a quick way to get to know Belfast and to see parts we couldnt by foot, we got a discounted ticket off the street at first i though it was a pranc but do do it you get two days to keep hopping on and off, and cheaper than on the bus. the driver was friendly, cracked my jokes and was a delight. a well worth thing to do for first visitors and an easier way to get your barring in the city. thanks :D

“From Sectarianism to Consumerism”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

It was a cold afternoon in April, so we sat upstairs, well wrapped up! In the nearly two hours of the visit, we saw all those places that were main news items for, mainly the wrong reasons, for over 30 years.
If you want to get an overview of Belfast, the upstairs of the tour bus is THE place to be!

“birds eye view of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

It was good to see the whole area and for the guide to provide the history, we used it to work out where we wanted to go during the rest of the stay

“You must do this tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

the City Sightseeing Hop on Hop off bus tour was brilliant. Purchased our tickets at the airport for a discounted price. they picked us up on a shuttle bus at our hotel and took us up the road to the bus. The commentary was live and the lady was really really funny and entertaining. Brilliant!
