“Brilliant”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We were greeted cheerily by a rep of this tour company, standing on a street corner in the cold wind and rain. He wasn't pushy or salesman-like, just informative and helpful. He even contacted his manager to see what was the best deal we could get, and then walked us round to the tour start point.

We knew from checking online before we travelled, that we could save a good amount by buying a combo ticket for Belfast and Dublin. But the manager did us an extra student/OAP deal. Both the Belfast ticket and the Dublin ticket lasted 48-hrs, which was better than the 24-hrs each that I'd understood from the website.

We did the complete tour of 1.5 hrs immediately, which gave us the total overview we needed including the Titanic Quarter, Stormont, the Peace Wall, some of the wall murals and old troubled areas.

The next day we stopped off at various points and were especially pleased by the female tour guide - didn't get her name unfortunately. As there was only a handful of us on the bus, she sat with us upstairs and did us a very personal tour, answering our questions in a very informed and intelligent way that really enhanced our visit of discovery to Northern Ireland.

“Great tour”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Great tour in a really interesting city. Only took about 1.5hours so fine for us to fit in before an afternoon flight home. The tour guide was really good, full of information and plenty of funny stories. Definitely recommend this tour. Only cost £12.50 on the day too which is good compared to other cities where i've used these bus tours.

“Giants Causeway”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We booked our full day trip to Giants Causeway using the official website (no need to describe the beauty of Giants Causeway..is just marvelous!). Unfortunately, we didn't pay enough attention while booking on line and discover on the coach that we needed to pay little extras money to cross the rope bridge and enter the Giants Causeway location....but our lovely driver gave us the opportunity to purchase in advance combined tickets at discounted rates.

“Good all-round tour”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Having never taken one of these tours in my home city, I decided to take the opportunity when we had a French visitor staying. We were lucky with the dry weather (even in late Feb) and could sit on the top deck and our guest was able to take her photos. Their rate was quite competitive compared to the other companies
The driver and guide were humorous and very informative - it is a great way to see the city if your time is limited. The only draw back, I would say, was that in the off peak season there was no multi-lingual audio (as we have used when visiting other European cities), but our French visitor had good English so she didn't mind too much.
Would certainly recommend it for other visitors.

“A good way of seeing Belfast”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Belfast, take the troubles away is a beautiful City to visit.

Luxury Hotels and fantastic restaurants.

The tour bus is easy to find and good value for money, remember cold/damp Belfast is at most times of the year wrap up warm.

The upperdeck is the best place to be, you dont miss anything and theres lots to see in Belfast.

The guides are very entertaining and do not miss any details on your journey.

Some of the areas you may visit, it will depend on the current situation if it is safe to visit on that particular day....bear this in mind....

Belfast is steeped in History and i can 100% recommend the tour bus.....
