Excellent way of seeing the city and learning about the history of Belfast. I learnt something new with each guide and saw something new each time I went around. I would definitely recommend going round multiple times. Sitting on left and right side of bus. My only negative was some of the buses were completely unsuitable for sightseeing if sitting inside. Some had absolutely no view from the windows. Finally try and get the ‘older’ guides. They have the humour and best stories.

Easy to find the buses outside city hall. Great fun facts for Louie and John the driver. Stay on the bus full tour then next day or later get off at stops to explore. We went on Easter and sadly didn’t see falls road. But would recommend this for everything seeing the city and getting around.

It was marked "in French" on the ad but only comments in English... So nice visit to the streets of Belfast without understanding anything!!!!

Fantastic tour and the driver’s are very informative great value for money

Great way to get around the city and to the key visitor places
