“Titanic walking tour - excellent”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Did the tour on monday 18th Feb 2013, our guide Helen was excellent, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I would recommend this tour to anyone, we went to the slipways, HMS Caroline, the pump house and the dry dock. Throughout this Helen showed us photos of then and now and provided background information for each site. A must do !

“Interesting and worthwhile”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Good experience for anyone interested in the history of Titanic or industrial heritage in general. It is advertised as taking an hour and a half which was spot on. Starts outside the main entrance to the Titanic Belfast centre. As the name implies, it does involve a lot of walking, and also climbing down and then up quite a lot of stairs, so you need to be fairly fit. Takes in the H&W drawing offices, the slipways where Titanic and Olympic were laid down, the enormous dry dock where they were finished and finally the pump house for the dock which is an attraction in its own right. Our guide Claire was well informed and made the whole thing very interesting. I certainly found it much more engaging than the (IMHO) over-hyped Titanic Belfast, which I visited last year, since you get to see the real locations that have such strong connections to Titanic and her sister ships. A slight disappointment was that we only got to see the drawing offices by looking through the windows, which any passer-by can do. But still, we did get all of the background information on them and about the history of H&W which was very worthwhile.
Ends up at the Pump House which has a cafe, which was very welcome as it was a cold and windy day.
Recommended.

“Titanic walking tour”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We had a relatively new guide called Claire who took us on our tour. She was fantastic and was so enthusiastic and very informative. The walking tour was much better than the museum. Definitely to be recommended. We did the tour on Sunday 17th Feb

“A must do”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Helen took us on the tour on a cold and windy Friday morning in December. Helen knew her stuff and really made the whole experience come to life. The tourtakes in the number 401 yard and slip way, the drawing offices ( sadly these are in such a bad state of repair that H&S forbid entry into the building but a glimpse through the window is almost as good.)

The walk down to the Thompson Graving dry dock takes you past Titanic studios and HMS CAroline, the only remaining first world fighting ship.

The dock itself is amazing, a real must do. It really gives some idea of the size and the construction of the ship- the caisson gate at the end of the dock is made of the same steel and rivetts as Titanis herself.
The pump house is the end of the tour and a welcome chance for a warming drink or snack.

If you can get back to the Titanic ehibition and slip way 401 after dark the outlines of the liners are marked out by an illuminated strip. It's a good photo op.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

An excellent and thought provoking tour. Our guide Ashley was so enthusiastic and passionate about her subject, it really helped bring things to life. We looked round what was once the huge Harland & Wolff construction sites, including the drawing office where Titanic was designed and the slipways and dry dock where she was built. The tour includes descending into the dry dock itself, which really brings home just how big the Olympic ships were. The last surviving White Star vessel, the tender ship Nomadic, was in dry dock nearing the end of an extensive restoration and we would definitely like to go back to see the finished article. All very interesting and would definitely recommend it.
