Derek the tour guide was very professional, positive, funny, and a clear communicator. It is a fast-paced tour but he made it very enjoyable with his jokes and commentary. The day is packed with lot of stops and walking opportunities. All the sites were breathtaking. The walk to Carrick-a-rede bridge is 20 minutes with hills and lots of steps.”

Had a great day! Our guide was also the driver, which concerned me a tad at first. But Derrick (Derek?) was a fount of information and entertainment, chatting, joking, and explaining throughout--all while deftly maneuvering the bus. The tour was priced reasonably, though I'd note that neither lunch nor entries to key features at the two main sites (Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge) was included. As it happened, I had National Trust membership, which covered both entries, so lunch was the only additional charge for me. For the latter, Derrick took our orders in advance so we could be served nearly on our arrival at Fullerton Arms in Carrick-a-Rede. The food was nothing special, but it was timely and filling enough. Considering petrol prices in the UK, £35 seemed reasonable to cover transportation costs and not having to navigate between a range of places.
What we saw was certainly satisfying. Though not GoT-obsessed, I found each place fascinating and picturesque. The way Derrick showed clips from relevant episodes just before we disembarked to see the filming site really helped to understand how the film used the places--especially when disparate places were edited together as if they were one and the same in a given episode.
Giant's Causeway was a major lure for me, and we had about an hour and fifteen minutes to explore it on our own. If I'd had my druthers, we would have had another 30-45 minutes, as the allotted time didn't permit exploration beyond the main area. Still, it was as impressive and "wonder-full" as I expected, and I'm so glad I got to be there as long as I did.
This tour was long, but the day went pretty quickly. It was worth the money AND the time invested.”

What a way to spend a day! We were fortunate to have Derrrick as our guide. Knowledge with hummor! Seriously, the entire day was full of beauty, interesting historical stories and a coast line not to be missed. The Causeway was a natural wonder. Hikes if you wish to and a good lunch stop. Perfect day led by a great guide!”

Derek was a fantastic driver and guide. He was informative, and hilarious. The day flew by.
It was really great that he would show us the Game of Thrones scene before getting off the coach
so we could put it into context. We really loved this tour.”

Enjoyed our guide and the content. Also enjoyed the locations. Giant's Causeway is slightly overrated, but the Carrick Rope-Bridge was spectacular.”

We had an absolute blast on this trip! I would highly recommend this tour even if you aren't a big Game of Thrones fan. We got to visit a lot of beautiful places without feeling too rushed and our guide, Phil, was a delight to be around.”

Considered hiring a car but chose the coach trip. Good decision!
The driver / host Troy was very entertaining and had good knowledge of the trip and history.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend”

Dereck was an awesome tour guide. He was funny and educational. It’s a wonderful way to visit Northern Ireland as well as geek out on some Game of Thrones knowledge. I would recommend not only the tour but Dereck.”

This tour was one of a kind! We got to see so many beautiful places mixed in with some Game Of Thrones scenery that was just stunning. Our guide Derrick was hilarious and super accommodating. We had the best day. Be prepared for a lot of walking and always pack a rain jacket!”

The tour was brilliant. Thanks to our driver Derek, it was both very interesting and hilarious. The sites on the tour are absolutely beautiful and I like the fact that you do not have to be a fan of GoT to appreciate what you see. My friend who is not a fan loved it too!”

I think the guides name was Dennis? Anyhow, he was great. The whole thing was better than I expected, and would recommend it to anyone. I'd probably do it again myself.”

As GOT fans.Myself and my husband enjoyed our GOT tour.Our guide Derek was warm and welcoming as we boarded the bus right on time and we were his first pickup.The time on the bus was filled with Derek’s knowledge and facts mixed with capturing storytelling and in between some funny and corny jokes had everyone laughing , excited and enthusiastic to see these wonderful locations Belfast has to offer. along with the link to game of thrones at these locations in video clips shown beforehand by Derek on the bus.He gave us set times to be back on bus at each location and go enjoy ourselves.Always asked everyone did they enjoy each location.He organised the tickets to be collected on arrival for Giants Causeway no waiting in line . Our lunch was lovely we didn’t have to wait as it was preordered by Derek he gave everyone a menu to choose from we told him what we wanted and he rang ahead for lunch order. The rope bridge was last location no waiting here in line either .It was a pleasure to have Derek as our guide would highly recommend him to anyone interested in Belfast’s beautiful locations”

My friends and I are not Game of Thrones fans but took the tour to visit some different places around the Antrim area.
Our driver, Derek, was brilliant. Very knowledgeable without stuffing our faces with facts about the show as he acknowledged that not everyone was on the tour for that. He was funny, with lots of “bad” jokes which kept us entertained but also gave us quiet time as well.
We thoroughly enjoyed the day and would definitely recommend this tour.”

Troy was informative, friendly and had a brilliant sense of humour. He was genuinely interested if we were having a good time. It was a long day but we got to see so much. Even if you aren't a game of thrones fan you can still enjoy this trip. Would definitely recommend to anyone”

Troy our guide was excellent, very chatty and knowledgeable. Troy went above and beyond to ensure we all had a great GOT experience and kept to the timetable. Ireland is a beautiful and diverse country and I hope it continues to thrive as a tourist destination, it so deserves it after years of troubles.”

So, everyone will tell you that if you go to Northern Ireland that you MUST go to The Giant's Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge - and they are RIGHT! These must do activities are bundled with some really cool GoT filming locations so you get to see it all. Highly recommend for the GoT fan with limited time in Northern Ireland.”

My wife and I had a wonderful day on this tour. It was made even better with our driver and guide Derrick. He kept us entertained with bad puns and jokes and had a well rounded knowledge of interesting things in general. I would recommend this tour to anyone. But remember a great guide makes the difference between a good trip and a great trip.”
