Toured with Norman Reily - Belfast Tours. He is just very nice and interesting guy. He tells the story of Belfast in a fair and even manner. Took 4 hour tour and then did Titanic on our own which would be what i would recommend. Sadly, we should have extended our time with Norman and have a beer or two with him - as he is so well versed on the area. Read Less

We very much enjoyed the tour guide and his knowledge of the area and the history. He was bright and entertaining as he wound us through Belfast and its history. The tour of the Crumlin Road Gaol was also interesting and informative. We appreciated being told exactly what the physical requirements would be as my husband has some limited mobility and he could decide how far to go and what to proceed with. Overall, a very nice afternoon. Read Less

Iceland had been so fantastic we expected something of an "after the Lord Mayor's Show" day but we were fortunate to book Paddy who gave us an outstanding cultural and historical tour, so good in fact that we finished the holiday on a high rather than with a sense of anti-climax.

Amazing scenery, glens and coastal road. Just the tour guide drove me a bit mad and seemed to think she wasn't allowed to STOP talking even when she didn't really have anything to talk about! But lovely scenery.

TaxiTrax GIANT’S CAUSEWAY TAXI TOUR (7hr tour). Our guide was ready for us at least 30 minutes early, as we presented early to start our journey. Kudos to him! Due to heavy traffic, it took about 20-30 minutes to get onto the North Antrim Coastal route A2 Road. We went through very quaint towns with picturesque scenery, even when it would rain. And it rained on and off the entire day so thankfully we worse rain gear from head to toe. The green steep cliffs and bluffs served as a magnificent backdrop to the ocean. Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge Links mainland to tiny Carrick Island and is 20m long 30m high, circa 1755. It is mostly made of metal now and is very sturdy. This £5.9 per person trip is about a 5-10 minute walk to the bridge and is probably not meant for folks who are at risk of falling down. Especially in the rain, the tiny island surface is very uneven and slippery. After we crossed the bridge – WOW, The views! Fantastic! Really a gem. I felt like Luke Skywalker at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, especially when it briefly stopped raining. Dark Hedges was a location filmed in season 2 episode 1 when Arya fled Kings Landing. The majestic Beech Trees were planted by Stuart Family in 1700s and are terrific. It was very beautiful. We skipped Bushmills Whiskey Distillery as it was too crowded and frankly didn't have great reviews on line We got back to our cruise ship 2 hours before sailing off. Our driver usually gives tours in Belfast, so though he knew the area well as he summered there his whole childhood, he didn't know a ton of factual information about the sites. Then again, I hate a tour guide who gives info nonstop, and our 7.5 hr ride was pleasant because he wasn't over chatty. And he was courteous and receptive to questions. He basically said to let him know what we wanted and when we wanted to pull over for photos. I had notes in my iPhone so I knew a little of what we were visiting. Unfortunately all 4 of us had a little difficulty understanding his Irish accent. I would give 5 stars if we could have learned a little more. Read Less

We had a very funny tour guide he was the fine example of Irish humor. The tour was very informative and we saw a lot of murals on the building walls and the beautiful castle. We did get off in the city and do some shopping and took the free shuttle back. The free shuttle was very crowded and we had to wait for two before we were able to get into one. So leave yourself a lot of time to get on the free shuttle back to the ship. Read Less

In Belfast we took the ships shuttle to town and took the Hop on Hop off bus around especially enjoying the stretch where we viewed the murals and the description of them and the troubles. On highway stretches it was very hard to hear what the guide was saying.We hopped off and had a Guiness in a cute little pub where they poured it slowly and it was delicious. Then we sat and talked to a local family enjoying the conversation. Read Less
