Thanks to a friend's recommendation, we booked the 48-hour double decker and a day trip to the Giant's Causeway online with these guys. We usually don't do these kind of trips as we feel exploring on foot off our own steam is good enough but this was really worth it. First, we had a day out on a posh coach... More

Got an early tour on a rainy morning. Thought we were either going to have to sit outside on top in the rain or be confined to the bottom floor of the bus. No fear, they provided a completely enclosed bus and we had terrific views of the city from our perch on the second floor. The tour guide, Lisa... More

Belfast is a fairly 'new' tourist town and many are just beginning to find here. Like most cities in Europe (and the world) offered a general orientation city tour that gives a very good idea of the different parts! Especially with this bus tour is that it is quite long and inclusive - even if there is a supplementary bus... More

We try to take a bus tour whenever available and this was a great choice. The commentary was pithy and humorous, but more serious when required. The tour divided into 3 sections; historical, sights/attractions and political. All were of interest but the last was particularly well handled. We found new places to visit later and learned a lot more than... More

The staff were all friendly and had lots of knowledge on every location. They were funny too. The bus stops at lots of sightseeing locations and the buses are easy to notice and have lots of seats. Easy for a pushchair and accommodating for a 2 year old. I would recommend. Only downside is that they don't run until 10am... More

We visited Belfast for a few days in February with our two boys aged 5 and 9. We booked the giants causeway tour via the website before we left which was really easy. It was great value as it also included the open top city bus tour. The whole day was amazing. Derek, our driver and tour guide, was a... More

This is an excellent way to see Belfast when in a whistle stop tour. The guides are very informative and comical, they have a lot to talk about and make it interesting and fun, worth the ticket price by far!

If you're staying in the City, this is a fabulous way to be introduced to its history; If staying only for a night, arrive early and then you can see a lot from the top of the bus, decide what you want to view a bit more on foot, also stop and eat lunch, and see the rest of the... More

We did this on our last day as it was rainy and we didn't have enough energy to get around on foot. We bought our ticket from our hotel (ramada encore) which was handy but every time we got the bus it was fairly late and the seats were quite damp from the rain. The tour information was good but...
