The Tour through Belfast was an outstanding experience because the route and above all the outstanding guide. We left depressed however about a city still in mourning. Incomprehensible that people can get together and resolve their differences. Religion is a curse for mankind

We did route 1 1/2 times. Saw city and outlying areas. It took us to see beautiful gardens where we hopped off and walked around and to the city market which had everything from food to clothing and jewelry.

Belfast has a lot to offer and the Hop On Hop Off bus gave you a wonderful perspective of the City. The only fault on this tour was that we were sitting upstairs and the live commentary guide was downstairs and we could not hear half of what she was saying. Since the bus was full we were unable to move downstairs

A great way to see the city and learn about its history.Great commentary from Ray with lots of facts and humour.

HOHO is always a good way to see a lot in a short time. We took several busses so we heard guides with differing options on the past events in Northern Irelands history. Excellent way to spend a day.

We took the Belfast sightseeing tour Friday afternoon 26/7/18 and immediately we knew we had chosen the right tour. Our tour guide ,Rachel, was informative,witty and very honest in her portrayal of the events that have happened in Belfast down through the years. We started the tour in the city center and 2 hours later finished back in the city center with a more informed view of the city and having learned a lot after our trip.From the city center sights to the heartbreaking events of the Troubles, Rachel gave us a matter of fact view of the events that shaped the city. Rachels explanation of the history of the Troubles ,in particular, was unbiased,accurate and more importantly easy to understand, especially for our children aged 12 and 16. We toured the city streets getting all the information of early Belfast up to the present day. 2 hours was not enough. Rachel is a great ambassador for her company and also of Belfast. You could tell she was a very proud Belfast woman and encouraged everybody on board to explore the city and interact with the local people,which we did over the weekend. The bus itself was spotlessly clean and the sights on tour were well worth visiting. I would highly recommend this sightseeing tour

We were off a cruise ship so not a lot of time. This was a great way to get a good overview of the city with information to go along with it. We were up top and could hear the guide without any problems. We were able to spot the places we wanted to return to and some cases got off and back on at a later time. Worked perfectly as advertised.

The only way to see the city!

Excellent value for money, so informative and enjoyable.

This activity is highly recommended especially if you will stay in Belfast for two days. It is east to go around the city and see the popular sights and used the same to see the Titanic museum (which is a must). Try to do it twice since the male tour guide who is much older is very good.

Great value for money. Tour guide was extremely informative and interesting. Highly recommend this tour as you get to see a lot more of Belfast than you would just walking round. Hopped off on the way round at the Crumlin Road gaol and did the tour which was great.

having the 48 hour pass enabled us to organise our 2 day stay in Belfast so that we could visit some of the very interesting sites. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and helped us work out our trips. We toured Stormont which was very grand and although we couldn't go in every room because there were meetings being held, it didn't spoil it. We went on the tour of the Crumlin Road jail which was really interesting. Having lived through the troubles from mainland UK it was weird but wonderful seeing the murals and learning from the tour guides all about the history behind them. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and great value for money.

Very good. Belfast has an interesting history.

Great way to get around Belfast. We took this to the Titanic Experience and later rode around to see the city. We were on a Princess Cruise ship. There was a free shuttle into the city, and then the Hop-On/Off bus is 1/4 mile away.

Fantastic tour, much more than a Hop-On Hop-Off bus, which took us all over Belfast and which would have been impossible to achieve on our own in 2 hours. Many thanks to Gavin our brilliant guide, who gave us so much information, with a few jokes along the way. All the staff were very professional and helpful, ensuring my elderly mother-in-law was looked after. If you only do one tour in Belfast, this has to be it. Thank you once again for a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours.

Very good tour - even on a cold damp day. Just need to be well wrapped up. Buses were approx. on time and audio information helpful.

Good way to get around Belfast and see the main sights, several of which are far from each other.
