Steve our tour and bis driver was very welcoming, and knowledgable,and funny for some of our group of 11 range from 56-2, this was their first trip to NI, our only disappoint for the day was that the rope bridge closed just as we got there, as did the downpour of rain and hail. Steve went round the bus showing everyone pictures he had on his phone, that he had taken last year. And on the drive back into belfast he pointed out places to visit, and named what he said were the best walking tours,

From being picked up at our hotel to drop off in the centre of Belfast we could not fault this tour. The scenery on the drive along the Antrim coast was breathtaking as was the Giants Causeway and the crossing of the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge was something I will never forget. Although the weather wasn't too good it did not spoil our day out. Our bus driver and tour guide Frank was fantastic, he kept us entertained and his knowledge of Belfast past and present was amazing as was his sense of humour. A brilliant day out for a great price.

Don’t miss it and it’s worth spending a day on this tour. David the guide was knowledgeable with good sense of humour. I think it’s cheaper compared to others.

The day tour to Giant’s Causeway was the highlight of our trip to Ireland! Sean was a fantastic guide! He engaged each person in a genuine way and provided thoughtful and entertaining insight into Ireland’s past and present. The Causeway speaks for itself as one of the most beautiful and awe inspiring sights in Ireland! Thank you for a memorable day! Tony was a great driver as well! Trish and Katie from New Jersey

Fantastic day out, seeing stunning scenery and interesting landmarks, such as the Causeway itself, but also Castle Dunluce and the rope bridge. We followed the coastline up, seeing a seal and stopping at a few picturesque seaside villages. Weather was brilliant - it would have been a different experience if it had been raining. Best of all was the great guide, Sean, and the driver, Nigel. Sean's information about the history of Northern Ireland, how Games of Thrones has impacted the finances of the country and information about stopping points were very interesting. The day won't be forgotten.

Our coach was fresh and clean with a friendly, professional and knowledgeable driver who went the extra distance in keeping his passengers happy. Despite the inclement weather we very much enjoyed not only the drive to the Causeway but the magnificence of the Causeway itself. The route on the return journey gave us the opportunity to take in the countryside and its many attractions. All in all; a great day.

We had a great time visiting the Giant's Causeway and other local attractions around the coast and glens. Our guides Charlene and David were fantastic, especially David who kept us informed, amused and entertained throughout. We thoroughly recommend this trip

A tour full of sightseeing and activities with lots of information about the sights by our friandly and humorous driver!

This tour was a highlight of our Belfast area trip. Our guide was funny, informative and tailored his stories to our very diverse bus. I appreciated that he made sure we all respected each other's time - if someone was late to the bus, we left them behind (and that actually happened). Based on others' feedback on this site, we brought water and snacks and were very glad we did. My only feedback to the tour company is to skip Carrick-a-rede bridge and instead spend time at one of the castles. The bridge was pretty but didn't live up to the hype of its advertising.

Great day trip! Frank was great and gave us lots of information on the bus. We also had plenty of time at both attractions to walk around and see everything.

Knowledgeable guide with a good sense of humour. The high winds shut down the rope bridge, but that did not interfere with the experience of the tour. Lots of walking and worth every second. Lunch stop at distillery and it's busy. Tour was well paced.

Great day travelled from Belfast city centre to Giants Causeway then the rope bridge. Driver Stephen was great gave loads of info on history and was good fun. Even though the weather was very wet it did not spoil the day.

Really enjoyed this trip. The bus was very comfortable. The tour guide was great. The scenery was terrific even though it poured rain on us while walking down and back from the Giant's Causeway. Enjoyed Carrick-a-Rede and all the other sites. It was a jam packed day and for anyone staying in Belfast longer, they could go to one site for a more in depth visit. Stopped in Bushmills for whiskey tasting and lunch. Recommend bringing your own lunch because there is no time to find a restaurant/pub, order lunch and eat, let alone try to taste whiskey or peruse the gift shop.

Our tour guide, David, is the funniest tour guide in my opinion. He told us a lot of Irish's joke and stories. I will definitely recommend this trip.

We had a fantastic day touring Giants Causeway, the rope bridge, Bushmills distillery and the Causeway Costal Route. Steven was an amazing driver sharing stories of the area and Northern Ireland’s history. We traveled with extended family, all 4 adults and 3 kids (ages 16, 13 and 9) had an amazing day. This was a true highlight of our UK adventure!!

The itinerary, commentary and transportation were worth way more than we paid. Large coach but comfortable. We saw so much of Northern Ireland in a day. It was great and Stephen was so courteous and caring. Funny too. The Giants Causeway is fantastic and the views at the rope bridge took our breath away. Although lunch at the distillery is not a great experience, the food was pretty good and not over-priced; kind of a cafeteria really. Whiskey tasting (3 for £10) was well worth it even though we didn’t think the whiskey was great. Loved the Antrim coast drive and even stopped for ice cream! Highly recommend!

Steven, our guide, was also our driver and was able to multitask brilliantly. I was sat at the front of the coach and felt very safe in his hands - even when talking to the group his driving was excellent. We had a full two hours at the Giant's Causeway and plenty of time at the rope bridge. He made sure that we stayed ahead of the crowds where possible! This meant that when we stopped for lunch at the Bushmills Distillery, we were served quickly and had spare time to wander around the town afterwards.

An excellent trip, Great day out, but low cloud and mist meant most of the spectacular scenery was invisible.Lovely visitor centre, good food.

The guide and driver (Emily and Nick) were excellent and the sights were great. Emily has a great personality and an excellent singing voice and she added a lot of colour to our tour. Its a long day (9-6) so plan accordingly.
