Our pick up was very late due to some passengers not coming back to the coach at the correct time. We were waiting to be collected in Belfast and were about to give up and do something else when the coach appeared. Please remember to keep to the times advised by the bus driver. Our driver Paul was wonderful. He was funny but very helpful and considerate given that my husband was disabled and required a wee bit of help getting on and off the coach. Lunch was expensive, so bring your own or be prepared to spend a fair bit. I walked down to the Giant's Causeway bypassing the visitor's centre thinking that I could get the shuttle bus back up the very steep hill. Please check that the bus is working. The day I was there it was not and apparently a sign was posted in the visitor centre which I did not see. The journey uphill was daunting and on a very hot day, exhausting. The Causeway was fabulous and I am glad I went despite the unwanted walk uphill. Highly recommended tour.

Since the early 17th century it has fascinated geologists, inspired artists, and, from the mid 18th century onwards, has been an attraction for travelers from across the world. On this tour, you'll gain pers...

The Tour Guide and Bus Driver was so friendly and very accomodating, got plenty of jokes too and are so knowledgeable of the history of the places we visited. They have stories of fantasy and folklore that is entertaing and inspiring to listen to.
Besides the great sites and weather, Sean, as our guide, was wonderful. He added so much to the day with interesting information and resiliency to changing conditions. Our driver, Thomas, was coolly competent and never got rattled.
A packed Itinerary, the guide was very informative throughout the trip. Learnt lots of facts about each place we were going to. It’s a trip that’s lasts over 12 hours but they stop for refreshments. Well worth the money.
We had an amazing day and the guide was just fantastic! Really entertaining yet very informative. You see a lot in one day but it doesn't feel rushed at all.
Antonio and Nicolas are the best tourguide and driver ever! We stopped by many beatiful places on the way to destinations.
