What people are saying about Northern Ireland

Having never been never been to Belfast before , the bus tour was a great way to get an overview of the city. We were limited for time but anyone with more time could then decide where they would like to go and return on the hop on/off rart of the booking. We chose to ride on the open top , which was a wee bit damp but that was down to the big man upstairs ( not Alan )who kept us all well informed and amused with his banter. WELL DONE ALL!.

A really enjoyable way to experience Belfast, the tour takes in all the significant parts of the city and the local guide gives it a really local and individual feel. I always love the hop on hop off aspect as it allows me to stop and see specific parts that are of more interest to me.

Spent 5 hours wandering the spectacular grounds. Brought a picnic and ate in Lady Alice's temple -Great view all the way beyond the pond to the Queen's residence. Enjoyed the tropical nature of the Secret Garden. Staff all very friendly and pleasant.
