Visited Belfast to see the Titanic experience and decided to take the bus tour rather than a cycle tour, which we usually prefer in a city. This enabled us to see places such as Stormont and the sites of "the troubles" which dominated the news for so many years. Great guides giving lots of useful, unbiased information with lots of...

In one and a half hours we passed by the most important areas of Belfast. Rachel offered interesting insights and wit. We enjoyed the open air deck but there are plenty of seats enclosed for the less hearty.

My husband and I took two tours using 48 hour tickets. Both guides were excellent, really top of the class with lots of information, personality and just the right amount of fun. We hopped off where we wanted to and hopped off again later. Every major tourist destinaton should offer this type of tour with LIVE guides! It makes all... More

I went for this tour because my gf got ticket online. We spend 30 min looking for ticket office to redeem our vouchers but no success. Man at the bus was very helpful and he managed to let us in with no printed ticket (fair play to him). After all it wasn't good experience. The guide was British and he... More

We waited a while until this tour got started, but that's not a problem as you get a high view of the busy shopping streets while you wait. The tour guide "Brendan" was so entertaining. He really seemed to understand that we were there to learn, but also to enjoy ourselves. He had some pretty challenging sights to comment upon,... More

This Hop-On Hop-Off tour is unique because there is live commentary. I took the route three times in two days because I learned different things from the different guides. Although the commentary is basically the same the details can be different because of each guide's personality and delivery. This is an inexpensive and entertaining way to see what Belfast has...

What a brilliant tour! I think the lady was called Rachel? So informative. She was really knowledgeable and made the tour funny was well as interesting. What I loved about the tour was that it didn't shy away from the troubled past of the city. The driver was great also! Definitely worth doing.

I went on the 11.30 tour (Lisa the guide but have forgotten the name of the driver) around the city. Lisa gave a well informed and numerous commentary . As a bonus I was then able to do the Green route tour (free of charge) out to Belfast Castle and Carrickfergus. Richard was a delightful, engaged and engaging man -... More
