Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: The Dark Hedges, Ballymoney, County Antrim, Northern Ireland

Stop At: Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland

Spend around 1.5 hours admiring the spectacular landscapes, made up of some 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. The stepping stones leading from the cliff foot disappear under the sea. They reappear in the Island of Straffe in Scotland, hence the legend that this was a road built by the Irish giant Finn McCool to enable him to cross over to Scotland. Truly an amazing wonder of the world!

    Such a great trip! Laurence and Captain John were great hosts and shared a lot of information with us throughout the tour. I really enjoyed spending the day with them.

    We were lucky to get Daniel and George on our tour since we hit each stop on time and got back right on schedule. The stops were awesome although the weather didn’t cooperate too well, but sometimes that’s the way it goes. Daniel was very informative and entertaining and even played and sang us a couple songs on his guitar (which isn’t easy on a moving bus). All in all, a great tour and consider yourself lucky if you get these two!

    My friend and I had an amazing time on this tour. The weather was all over the place but Kevin and Irinel kept us laughing and happy. The tour was a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend it to others!

    Thanks to Niall (and his guitar) and Yuri (the best bus driver) making as long day interesting and pleasant

  • 27-Jan-2020

    Northern Ireland was so beautiful. Our tour guide, Lisa, was very personable, and the coach driver, Mick, was hysterical. The sites were beautiful, the GoT and other information was intriguing, and the breadth of landscape and Belfast was impressive to get to in the long day that we had for the tour.
    I would have personally liked a few more GoT tidbits tossed in, but not enough to have detracted from my experience in any way at all.
    Five stars was well deserved by Lisa and Mick, and I would highly recommend these tours to anyone!

    Early morning bus ride with a quick stop at a convenient store to grab snacks and drinks. This stop allows you to get sterling pounds for Northern Ireland, since they don't accept euro (most places do accept major credit credits). During this tour you will have the opportunity to see several GoT locations and spend about 1.5 hour in Belfast at the end (dinner, site seeing or shopping). Laurence was an outstanding tour guide who was entertaining and provided a lot info/history during the base ride and stops. Sylvester was our bus driver who kept us on time and navigated us safely through Ireland. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are a GoT fan and want to see different parts of Ireland.

    Great day out from Dublin! The perfect opportunity to go see the Irish coast and enjoy a quick pit stop in Belfast. Sean and Stephen were great tour guides providing fun tidbits at each location!

  • 27-Nov-2019

    I really enjoyed this tour. The guide, Sean, was extremely knowledgeable, and funny. Which made for a very pleasant day. The driver, Stephen, was also very friendly and got us everywhere in a safe and timely manner. Well done all around!

    It's a long day, but the sights are amazing. The Giants Causeway is beautiful, as are the Dark Hedges (a GoT filming location). And the GoT exhibit in Belfast is great for big GoT fans, with lots of props and costumes on display. Our tour guides gave us lots of great commentary and info along the way.

  • 29-Oct-2019

    Amazing opportunity to see the giant's causeway as well as prominent game of thrones filming locations.

    Firstly, we were blessed with beautiful weather.

    Our guide, Gavin, was quite knowledgeable and provided us with information on the history of Ireland, the history on the locations we were visiting, as well as "behind the scenes" stories of game of thrones shooting locations. We were given enough time at each location (especially the causeway) to explore and take pictures. When arriving in Belfast our guide also gave us recommendations were to go and what to check out (e.g. gift shops, pubs, sights).

    All in all I would recommend this tour definately to other people.
