Gavin (guide) and Stephen (driver) were incredible. The company combined the Giant's Causeway & Game of Thrones tours after COVID and it was a really cool combination. We loved hearing about the history of Northern Ireland and LOVED the Giant's Causeway. Honestly I wish we'd had more time there. The tour stopped for lunch at a Game of Thrones themed pub, but the very few staff were in the weeds, so it was a very hasty meal. I'm sure it's one of the few places that can accommodate large tour buses, but the pub was probably the worst part of the entire day. Gavin was great, kept us to schedule, and answered our more specific questions about Northern Ireland. He has a great knowledge of etymology and was able to tell us so much more about the Irish language. Would absolutely recommend this tour, just don't get your hopes up for the pub!

Overall positive experience. Not having a car, the possibility of renting a car, this tour represented a valid enough alternative to explore some of the most beautiful places in Northern Ireland, with numerous references to the locations of the TV series. Sure you get the feeling that everything is done in a hurry, but I think it's also the only way to see everything in one day. Surely, I would have gladly spent an extra hour at the Giant's Causeway rather than stopping at a restaurant for lunch. For a more detailed and updated program of activities, I recommend consulting the tour operator's website as the route is slightly different from the one presented here. In particular there are differences between summer and winter and the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge is currently not open to visitors.

Unfortunately our start to the tour was delayed because of a microphone fault so the coach had to go to the “YARD” to change microphones but that didn’t work so change of coaches before heading off an hour late. Tour going ok until the microphone on this coach stopped working but a Canadian gent on the tour was able to help the driver & guide to modify & get the microphone working. With the tour being behind schedule by about 80 minutes now the guide tried to catch up by shortening stopping times to make up time as we had to be at the Giants Causeway by a 3:30pm. Parts of the tour became a bit rushed but not the driver or guides fault just one of those things we had to accept. On a normal timed tour I am sure things would have been much better.
