This trip is highly recommended. Murphy our driver and guide was amazing. He was very knowledgable and entertaining, making the travel time very enjoyable. He was also very helpful, recommending places to eat and how to make the most of our time. We opted for the Titanic exhibition but would loved to have done the Belfast Taxi tour too. The walk to the Giant’s causeway was stunning and made even better with the sunny weather.

The tour was fabulous, even in the Northern Irish rain! Rodney was a fabulous guide, very informative and humorous with it. We have done a number of open top bus tours and this one was by far the best. No pre recorded commentary. It was lovely to have a local person taking us through the city.

Brilliant way to see the sight and get around the city. The live guides were very knowledgeable and funny.

Most enjoyable tour. Guide information very interesting and seeing different areas of Belfast.

It was great informative and interesting to see how things are done.
