What people are saying about Dunseverick Castle, Bushmills

Dave and Sara were fantastic! We enjoyed the black cab tour, as somber as it was, it was real living history lessons. Definitely pack something water proof as the rain pops up quick, and in the winter you definitely don’t want to be wet and cold. The entire day was relaxing to not have to drive the areas, and just enjoy the beauty.

This tour went above expectations . The bus was perfect . The stops and information was first class . Highly recommend this day tour . Anthony and Pablo were fantastic ! Very knowledgeable and shared so much extra tips for the tour and beyond .

Fun-filled, fabulous day. Excellent tour guide and bus driver. My only criticism is not having enough time to properly view the Titanic Museum -- but that is not the fault of the tour guide. Just means I'll have to go again!

This was a great day trip. It was well paced and there was a lot to see and do. My guide, Uma did a great job of entertaining us on the bus as well

The guide was wonderful. Knowledge of history, sense of humour, friendliness, everything was on time, strongly recommended
