Fantastic tour. Well planned, well organized with a very knowledgable and funny guide (forgot his name; it was a very Irish name). The Causeway itself is gorgeous, a must-see if you are visiting Ireland. Love the whiskey tasting bit of the tour the most (of course!). We got to try different ones (already included in the tour price, no extra charges!) and have learnt a lot more about whiskey. Also got to stop at the Dark Hedges and Belfast, making the trip even more interesting. A long day but a fruitful one. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking a full Irish experience. Make sure to put on your warmest jacket. We visited in Jan 2019. It was really cold once you got out of the bus. Thank you again for the amazing experience!
