What people are saying about HMS Caroline
Flexible attitude on the part of the organizers means that the 48-hour ticket can with negotiation be split over three days with the ticket not being used on the middle day very useful if you've booked a tour out of the city for that middle day. There was not much info given on the tour bus about each stop on the tour so you had to have obtained information about each stop elsewhere in order to decide where to get off on the route traveled by the bus. Most of the city center sights were mentioned, I found the most useful the one which allowed access to the tourist information office, there you found the data with which to choose the places to see that were on the tour. It is a pity that there is no post office for public use in the Stormont Parliament buildings that would enhance the visitor experience perhaps the tour operators could make that suggestion! Advertising restaurants that have been closed, on the bus, is a waste of time, it would be better to have current flyers available.
The hop-on hop-off bus is a great way to see the city. It also provides discounts to many of the sites. The guides are knowledgeable and sometimes offer a bit of humor with their history. I was able to get everywhere I needed to go. One caution: there is another hop-on company, so getting the right bus can be confusing.
We found the tour very informative and interesting. The running commentary was excellent and very objective about the history of Belfast. We had originally considered a black cab tour of the city but had been advised that we would get a very one sided view of the history, depending on the driver’s own affiliations.
Enjoyablev tour and well worth money quite sombre at times going through the Shankill and the falls and the prison. Titanic was also a great visit and enjoyed the market. Would strongly recommend.
We loved the bus tour of Belfast City, our guide Rachel was both informative & funny great hearing about the history of the city & seeing all the sights! Can’t wait to go back to Belfast
