The Causeway Express tour will cover:

Carrick A Rede Rope Bridge - The bridge links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrick-a-rede. It spans 20 metres and is 30 metres above the rocks below.

There will be a small fee to pay to cross the bridge, but this is optional. The price for this will be £6.00 per person.

 The Giants Causeway - An area of around 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption, the stones are one of Northern Irelands most famous landmarks, a must see!

Last, but not least, The Dark Hedges - Romantic, atmospheric, tunnel-like avenue of intertwined beech trees, planted in the 18th-century. This attraction was used to film some parts of the world famous TV show 'The Game Of Thrones.'

Please note some stops are time dependent, so the bus driver will give you a set time to return to the bus. This is to ensure everything runs smoothly and everyone gets the same amount of time at each destination.

Beautiful Sites but a RIPOFF!

My family and I took a tour to the Giant’s Causeway. We were a bit disappointed with our tour guide, Phil. He seemed to rush us through every attraction that was a part of our tour and excluded the dark hedges. He told us a...More
