Amazing, This one word sums up this tour with Odyssey Tours. We recently got back from a 12 day tour of the British Isles. One of those days was spent in Belfast where the tour was booked. A visit to the Giants Causeway and surrounding areas. We booked this tour directly with the company and we were amazed to the sights and information we were taken to. First off I picked the small bus excursion which only had like 24 seats which allowed for much more legroom then the larger buses. Boy was that a great choice as I emailed Jim prior about my taller size and legroom and he assigned me a seat that had the most legroom and what a pleasant surprise that was when we met Jim at the port. Once again this was a much better deal then the cruise ships excursions. Jim is a mans man! What a great tour from a wonderful man who has the Irish passion in his heart. Through the journey we heard of the struggles in Northern Ireland and I came away with a whole new history of the country that I thought I knew. Thank you so much Jim for the wonderful tour and may your dreams come true.
Book this tour and you won't be disappointed. Lots of stops for photos. What a great idea to visit the Causeway first to avoid the crowds. There were still a lot of people there early and there was a downhill walk to the ocean. The park has a shuttle bus operating both ways. The tour also stopped at the Titanic Museum for those that wanted to see it and a tour of Belfast for those who didn't want to visit the Titanic display.
Thanks again Jim.

Excellent value for money at a fraction of the ships excursion price. Our guide/driver, Paul was friendly and humerous whilst showing us the sights of Belfast and the Giants Causeway. The coach was comfortable with plenty of legroom and Paul made sure there were plenty of short restroom stops along the way. Highly recommended.

A wonderful shore excursion. The staff and bus were waiting at the port. Gail, our guide was fantastic. She was cheerful and engaging throughout the trip. Our driver, Geoff, was so pleasant as well, and a skillful driver. They made the trip delightful. The stops were great, and the timing of each was perfect.
They were very aware of the ship's time schedules and had us back to the ship without problems.
A great value! I highly recommend this company and excursion!

We took this tour and were very pleased with it. It was timely and informative. Our guide Gail, and Anthony, our driver were both great. We visited all of the sites as shown and had some extra time and Anthony took us for a brief tour of the Belfast walls and explained some of the history.

We booked this tour online for a smaller bus with extra leg room. As soon as we got off the ship in Belfast, Odyssey tour representatives were there to guide us to our guide/driver and bus. There were about 16-18 people in our group and we had "met" several previously on Cruise Critic so it was, for the most part, a comfortable group. The bus definitely had extra leg room and our guide was very knowledgeable. He got us to Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge site very early (we were only the second small bus there). Then we went to the Giant's Causeway where he gave us info on how to take the shuttle down from the Visitor Center area. We then stopped to take pictures of Dunluce Castle before going on a scenic drive along the coastline. At some point, we stopped in Ballycastle and had the BEST Fish and Chips lunch at O'Connor's Bar, as recommended by our guide. It was the freshest and the largest Fish and Chips platter we had on the whole cruise! On the way back to the ship, we stopped for ice cream in a tiny town and then, we had a drive around Belfast. Our guide was very upfront about the "Troubles" and how things are presently - from his perspective, of course. It was sad and disturbing to find that the "Peace Walls" are still up and the gates still close from dusk to dawn. Anyway, the guide gave us the option to get off in Belfast if anyone wanted to go around town on their own (the ship wasn't set to sail until late and had a free shuttle back from downtown Belfast). It was an excellent excursion! Our guide gave us a running commentary most of the time we were on the bus and he was open to questions and discussion. He also let us go on our own at most of the attractions we visited. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this shore excursion!

I am pleased to report that I finally received a full refund for the four tour tickets that we were unable to use because our cruise ship was unable to dock in Belfast. It took a couple emails back and forth, and a bit of time, but they came through with the refund---as was clearly promised on their website when a ship is unable to dock.
We were sorry to have missed this tour. They get great reviews, and with this refund, I wouldn't hesitate to book with them again.

The driver was most informative with information throughout and kept on schedule. We had 22 in a coach for 29 , so that was comfortable and a number easily managed at the several stops to and fro.

Coach was waiting at dock when ship berthed and returned us in good time to board for sailing away . All 22 were off the ship having booked independently as much cheaper than ships own tour and we saw lots more . Good value indeed.

We did the Giants Causeway shore excursion with Odyssey in a smaller bus with extra leg room. The tour was excellent!! It covered so much and for people like us who are active it was a perfect day. The guide was knowledgeable, and in addition to seeing the beautiful sights he took us to small towns to have some free time and lunch. He tried to avoid the big ships tour coach buses whenever possible. I would highly recommend, this tour is more comprehensive and a far better value than ships sponsored tours!!

Booked this tour so I could cross the Carrick-a-Reed rope bridge. (The ship excursion didn't offer it.) It was all I hoped for! Great experience and Odyessey had much better pricing. It was a smaller bus which I liked. Paul B. was very informative and entertaining. Would highly recommend.
