We went on the full tour and never got off, our tour guide Chris was excellent, witty but very informative even the children took in a lot of the history of the city.

“eye opener”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Great tour, guide was very informative and cracked jokes most of the tour. Got a bit scary when doing a tour of the walled areas and some young boys threw stones at the bus but apart from that very good value.

“Don't leave Belfast without getting on board a bus tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

I had a few hours to spare in Belfast and was approached by someone about one of these tours. I'm quite skeptical about street vendors but at £10 for a tour viewing all the sights in Belfast, I couldn't refuse. TOP TIPS: 1) Take a good camera with a zoom lens 2) Sit on the top level of the bus 3) Take a warm jumper/jacket 4) Sit near the front of the bus so you can hear the commentary

In summary we saw the City Hall, the new Titanic centre and dock, the Odyssey complex, Stormont, Crumlin Road Jail, Shankill Road, The Peace wall, Falls Road, Queen's University and lots of murals. If I'd had more time I would have got off at various stops but just staying on and seeing from the bus was excellent.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

we decided to do the bus tour as a quick way to get to know Belfast and to see parts we couldnt by foot, we got a discounted ticket off the street at first i though it was a pranc but do do it you get two days to keep hopping on and off, and cheaper than on the bus. the driver was friendly, cracked my jokes and was a delight. a well worth thing to do for first visitors and an easier way to get your barring in the city. thanks :D

“From Sectarianism to Consumerism”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

It was a cold afternoon in April, so we sat upstairs, well wrapped up! In the nearly two hours of the visit, we saw all those places that were main news items for, mainly the wrong reasons, for over 30 years.
If you want to get an overview of Belfast, the upstairs of the tour bus is THE place to be!
