  • This tour was fantastic and would recommend for sure! It's a long day but well worth it!

  • We had only a limited time to spend in Dublin and wished we could visit the Giant's Causeway. It seemed not to be practical. Then, we found his great one day tour by rail and bus up to Belfast, and several of the most popular sights. It was perfect! Our guide was easy to find at the rail station, remained helpful throughout the day, and the trip north was smooth and fast. At Belfast we transferred to the tour bus with Troy in the driver's seat. He was a wonderful mix of humor and history and really got us into a great mood, in spite of the rainy weather. Sometimes his patter was a bit fast and the accent hard to understand, but he was fun. The stops were well planned, if a bit rushed, but with this size group, they have to stay on schedule. It did give us a chance to walk out to the Carrick bridge, adequate time at the Giant's Causeway and a quick stop at Bushmills. The pub stop at lunch was delightful and cozy, with the added plus of some Game of Thrones memorabilia available. The tour around Belfast when we returned was quick, but gave us a sample to see if we would like to return here. Everything ran according to the plan we were given and we very much enjoyed the day.

  • Experiencing the rope bridge and Giants Causeway were the best parts of the trip. Having to order and buy lunch at a specific pub left much to be desired. Also, our loud tour bus guide was incapable of being silent for even a second. Ended the day with a headache.

  • This was a great way to get some sights in! The guides were fantastic!

  • This was a great trip. We took the train thinking it would be another great way to see Ireland. Really didn't see much from the train to warrant the additional expense. Save your money and take the bus tour from Dublin. Tour guides were knowledgeable and fun to chat with. Our favorite part was the Carricke rope bridge - fantastic vews of the coast. Giant's Causeway is just Ok.

  • Long day but amazing scenery and the driver was rather comical and entertaining. Train trip up was nice, the stop from lunch was pleasant as were the couple of stops before and after. Loved Giant's Causeway and the swinging bridge. Lots of tourists as it was the perfect day weather wise but not annoying. Lunch at Bushmills Whiskey distillery was nice as you were able to visit the store afterwards, you paid for your own lunch. Great value for money and would highly recommend.

  • This was a very good tour. Everyone was very helpful with those of us with limited mobility. I was very glad for the shuttle out to the causeway. The facilities at the visitor cnter weren't great -- the better ones are inside and you have to pay extra to enter the center but that isn't the fault of the tour. I liked the O'Connel station better than the main train station. I really enjoyed the Northern Ireland perspective on the conflicts

  • The natural view is great but the travelling time is too long. Will suggest not to take rail to Belfast in case someone will like to go to the Giant's Causeway.

  • My family and I had a wonderful time! The rope bridge was a great experience, but required a lot of stamina to climb up and down the steps to get there and back to the entrance. The Giant's Causeway was also fantastic. Our tour guys both the driver and our regular guide were highly entertaining and helpful. I would definitely recommend this trip to others.

  • Train and bus driver/tour guide were excellent but there was not much variety on this trip compared to the Galway/Cliffs/Limerick train trip tour we took last summer with Viator. Just most stops looking at cliffs/causeways.
