    Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable sharing facts and pointing out notable sights starting from Belfast City Center. I forgot to ask his name. When the bus arrived for pick up at the Belfast Visitor Center, it was already mostly full. I assume he introduced himself earlier when he picked up the larger group. Again, the guide was friendly and informative. I was disappointed by the size of the group (on the big size as I prefer smaller) and I felt the stop in Bushmills to be unnecessary. This was referred to as a 30 minute lunch stop. As this was a Sunday, many places were closed. The 2 cafes I found were crowded and busy. It took me nearly 15 minutes to purchase a takeaway tea. There was one grocery store with limited premade sandwiches. I overheard other tourists asking about fish & chips. Assuming they purchased them, it would have been a very rushed process. This time of 30 minutes should be added to the time at Giants Causeway. There is a lovely pub there called The Nook that serves a tasty fish & chips meal. The next disappointment is the fact that our guide instructed us to walk down to the Causeway however never mentioned the shuttle that saves over 30 minutes. Again, allowing for more time to explore the area and have a relaxing meal at the pub.

    Giant’s Causeway is incredible! Rainy, windy day, coach was dry and warm. Brian, our tour was very good. We were able to add Titanic on at the end of the tour and I’m so glad we did! All in all, a great day!

    Brian was fabulous. The trip was soaked in history and Brian was very meticulous is taking us through those periods. Highly recommended. The other good part was the time maintenance.

    First off the Irish who the hell knows what they are saying half the time. Contrary to the aforementioned statement our master of ceremonies Brian was totally understandable and good dude. We were entertained with stories during the bus rides and when we arrived or left a designation we were dropped off and picked up promptly no delays or waiting around in the rain. (Sidebar) If your coming to Ireland expect to spend some time In the rain so bring a raincoat. (Double Sidebar) If a little rain would convince you not to come to Ireland at least once in your life your making a terrible mistake. It could rain sheep sh!t the size of Beach balls and it would still be worth the trip. Brian was very active during stops volunteering to take pictures or explain something. This is my second trip to Ireland and won’t be my last. (Sidebar) Honestly in my experience Irish folks are super nice EVERYWHERE in the Country and more than willing to engage anyone in conversation (Not a joke) the Irish will sit next to you on public transportation and if your willing they will just chop it up with you. In closing if your coming to Ireland you will have a great time no matter where you go. If your looking to take a day trip which is a must here Finn McCools is an excellent choice.

    Giant causeway Very nice friendly tour guide and driver nothing was too much trouble . Would definitely recommend

    Great for a quick look at Northern Ireland! Enjoy an Irish coffee at The Nook after you trot around Giant’s Causeway. I would recommend packing shoes with good traction to climb the stones. They can be slippery!
