The whole trip was very enjoyable, David was very pleasant and helpful,giving us lots of information and included in the trip a area of beautiful coastline that wasn't in the original trip. He also gave us some very good suggestions for dining in Belfast which were extremely helpful 😀

David is phenomenal! Very personable and knowledgeable. Getting a personal tour from a local is better than going on a crowded bus tour and definitely worth the few extra quid. We must have said, “Wow!” a thousand times. Could not recommend more!

David was very accommodating and tailored the tour to our specific requests. Exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly he had the ability to keep a teenager engaged. We enjoyed the tour immensely.

David gave a great tour and was very accommodating with scheduling and even gave me a quick extra tour of the peace wall in Belfast as well

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Belfast and Northern Island. Such a beautiful trip and we learnt so much about the areas rich history.
