Guide was awesome. He was very helpful and very knowledgeable about everything we toured. We had a question about where to find souvenirs and he researched what he could and had seen from other tours. He pointed us in the right direction. He was cognizant about time constraints and was able to keep to the time line all day even when other travelers were putting us behind. His personality and humor were wonderful!

It could not have been better. In my opinion the time was sufficient in each location. Maybe for some, it may seem little, but I thought it was ideal. In this way, it was possible to discover many interesting points. Punctual and fun guide.

Brilliant tour. Patrick was a fantastic guide, informative and funny. Thanks for a brilliant day out, we saw so much. Perfect amount of time at each stop

A full-day excursion. Although we had booked it as a tour to the Giant's Causeway it included many short stops at Game of Thrones filming sites

Great tour. Saw lots of the country. Knowledgeable driver. Very organised.
