      I Booked the trip to The Giants Causeway for my friend and myself. Bus was comfortable. The driver, Andrew, was absolutely fantastic. Very knowable and so, so funny. He had us in stitches laughing all ghe time. The Giants Causeway is a must, if you’re visiting Belfast. And don’t forget to book it through City Tours. The staff in the shop were also extremely helpful.

      A great tour!
      A great tour to see the city and landscape of Belfast. The Giant Causeway was an amazing site. It was a great day. Lisa was our guide and Robert was our driver, well done especially since our ship came in a bit late. Do not regret wait to book this tour. Thank you Citysightseeing Belfast.

      Absolute bargain!
      I booked this excursion like a week before our trip bc I accidentally canceled another tour I booked. This tour had great reviews, but I was skeptical bc it was like half the price of the other one (and even that is like 1/3 of the price the ship charges) - and I was like something HAS to be wrong... Nope! It's a great tour, covering a LOT of ground. Andrew was our guide and driver extraordinaire - he was amazing! He talked a good part of the tour, telling us about the history of the places we visited, including a lot of the local folklore and superstitions (which was fascinating!). He seriously knows his stuff. We stopped at Harry's in Cushendall for lunch, which was divine. And we got back well before our ship departure. **Just to note, at Giants Causeway, there is a good walk down to the site but you can take a shuttle that goes back and forth (1£ each way). We walked down and then took the shuttle up. The hotel there sells some souvenirs and baked goods and drinks for takeaway as well. The 1.5 hrs we were given was more than enough time to see the Causeway and nip into the hotel for some cappuccino and snacks and use the restroom.

      What a great value
      Our family is on a British Isles cruise and stopped in Belfast yesterday. Lisa from CitySightSeeing was easy to find, standing right outside of the gift shop at the pier. The coach was comfortable and our driver Joe expeditiously drove us up the freeway in order to beat most of the crowds at Dunluce Castle and Giant’s Causeway. Lisa was a well spoken and very knowledgeable guide who kept us entertained throughout our time in the coach. We learned a lot about the people, history, and folklore of Northern Ireland. We had enough time to walk down the entire path at Giant’s Causeway and take pictures but not a lot more. This was fine because we had so much more to see. If you haven’t been to Giant’s Causeway, it is a must see because of its beauty and uniqueness. On the way back, Joe drove us down the scenic coast. We stopped for a view of the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. Sadly, we were not able to walk across the bridge because while it was closed during Covid, it was discovered that the coaches were damaging the natural flora so they are now prohibited. The view was pretty though. We stopped in a very cute small town for lunch at a pub called Harry’s. The upstairs was mostly reserved for our group and we had a limited menu of five or six entrees so they could serve us quickly. The food was adequate. Nothing to write home about but perfectly acceptable. We made one more stop off for pictures of Carrickfergus Castle before heading to Belfast for a historical commentary and viewing of the various murals. At our tour’s conclusion we were dropped off quite close to our ship with plenty of time to spare. Overall this was an amazing tour at a fraction of the price of going through the cruise ship. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone coming to Belfast via cruise ship. You won’t be disappointed.

      Fantastic!
      What a fantastic day we had, Lisa our guide and a wealth of information, along with Joe our great driver, kept us informed, entertained, on schedule, and on the road (for those who have ever driven the Antrim Coastal Road you'll understand). We actually drove the reverse course of most of the other tour buses and by doing so got to the Giants Causeway ahead of the crowds. We couldn't have asked for better weather if we tried and we saw the beautiful sites along the Antrim Coast. I highly recommend this fantastic tour!!!

      Best Excursion to date!
      Lisa (tour guide) and Joe (driver) were both absolutely fantastic. This tour has the most bang for your buck I’ve ever experienced. So much history to visit, so much knowledge shared by the tour guide. Just overall amazing. We got to the causeway before all the other tours so we had plenty of time to ourselves on the rocks. The food stop was great as well and fairly priced. This was hands down the best tour of my life to date. Be warned: there is walking and some people on my tour bus didn’t read that so they were very upset at the causeway when they couldn’t manage to figure out the bus system. If there was more time, I would have loved to spend more time at the causeway. It’s breathtaking. Do take the red trail if you are physically fit enough. The views are worth it. The stairs aren’t that scary. When you go down the red path, and find the split off for the yellow, travel ever so slightly down the yellow to see the rocks in the wall before heading back. I didn’t and by the time I realized it, it was too late.

      Excellent and well planned program
      Our driver/guide Andrew was amazing! He gave proper and informative commentary the entire day and his corny jokes were also a welcome addition. The program was so well organized and planned that we could not fault anything. The price was good value as well. The only negative point for me was that there were many other coaches doing the same route. Would have been nice had a few of them switched the order of sights to lessen the crowds, but otherwise a well done day! Highly recommended!

      Coach tour to the Giant’s Causeway
      Had a great day. Tommy, our driver and guide, made the day interesting and his friendly, chatty style brought the information to life. Super way to see rural Northern Ireland. Stunning views and a full day.

      Educational, but not quite what I might I expected.
      The Giant's Causeway and Dunluce Castle ( a bit further down the Antrim Coast, on this day trip tour) were both very interesting and picturesque. The visit to Belfast offered the choice of a guided Black Taxi tour of murals and points of interest from the period of "the Troubles" in Northern Ireland, or a visit to the Titanic Museum. I did the Troubles tour, and while it was informative, Belfast is not a particularly scenic tourist city (...perhaps due to the Troubles?), and I already knew a fair amount about the Troubles from movies and documentaries, and from having grown up watching news reports about the violence, so I was left wondering if I should have done the Titantic Museum, instead. The tour did however make me realize that there is still a smoldering amount of potential for renewed sectarian violence (at least for a another generation or two, or perhaps the UK granting independence/reunification with the Republic of Ireland.

      Spectacular beauty of Northern Ireland
      Simply fantastic tour! Driving along the coastline of Northern Ireland was beautiful and of course, Giant's Causeway was a spectacular display of nature's best. Frank was a fabulous tour guide.

      Great cruise excursion - best one of our British Isles tour, and also the best price as well. Our guide, Lisa, and driver, Stephen, were also the best of our entire trip. Knowledgeable, humorous, and safe. Highest recommendation!

      Wonderful tour of Belfast and the Giants Causeway
      Lisa and Robert were amazing guides. The entire way was wonderfully narrated with very interesting facts about Belfast. Time at the causeway was a bit short. But we could have spent the day there.

    We were staying at Moville hostel in the summer of 2019 and one day we went to the giants causeway my family taught is was going to be very good with all the hype around but it disappointed us big time. There was no space in the parking lot because it was tiny and the 4 buses took up all the space and then it started to rain cats and dogs but the staff wouldn't let us in to porch of the mueseam but they said we would have to pay a good bit of money the walk down is nice but the giants causeway its self is very overrated. My children said the best part was leaving.

    We found this to be a great way to see some of the beauty of Northern Ireland if you are on a short trip . The coastline is stunning and the itinerary was well thought out . We went to a few places associated with Game of Thrones but we have never seen it but that’s fine , the younger ones on the trip loved it . The coach was very comfortable and the trip was made by our driver Stuart . He was very knowledgeable and had a great way of making each stop very interesting. It’s a shame he’s a Chelsea fan as he seemed like such a nice bloke ! We can recommend this trip to anyone and it has made us determined to return to some of the places we saw briefly .

    What a fabulous day out. I had researched in advance all the various trips and read the itinerary first so I knew that Carrick A Rede rope bridge was not in the current itinerary due to Covid restrictions as was the Bushmills distillery. But what a day out we had. The Antrim coat is just spectacular. We stopped at some beautiful villages on the way, had a really good lunch at Fullerton Arms before getting to The Causeway. We had an hour and 45 minutes which gave us time to visit the great gift shop, go in 49 minute guided walking tours, walk in the footsteps of giants and get back to to the coach with 10 minutes to spare. It was all in all a great day out. Lisa our guide kindly moved her bags so that we could sit together for the latter part of the journey in the prime front seat. My only slight niggle would be not having seat reservations. Booking a day tour you don't expect to be sat next to some random stranger as there were no seats together but Lisa did sort that out for us. Paddy the driver like Lisa was such a friendly, chatty chap. We got to have a good natter with him driving back and he successfully got us through all the road closures due to the centenary parade and back in time for dinner. Really enjoyed the day, feel the need to watch Game of Thrones and highly recommend this tour

    Due to COVID closures our tour cut the Bushmills and Rope Bridge visits but added several Game of Thrones tour stops. I never watched GoT but no problem as our driver/guide Stuart gave context to what we were seeing. Unlike other Ireland bus tours this trip made frequent stops (seven IIRC) which helped relieve the monotony. Stuart had many great insights and, also unlike most other bus tours, kept the bad jokes to a minimum. HIs telling of the Finn McCool story was the best of the three I heard while in NI. I found Giants Causeway a little underwhelming but was offset by the ride along Antrim Coast. Our lunch stop offered good value and taste for the money spent- no other real options unless you bring your own. Great time and tour, once conditions return to normal, would recommend either the Causeway or the GoT tour. ITT should offer a new tour option of this itinerary.

    The bus ride up the coast was beautiful. I counted 6-7 different rainbows over the course of the trip. The itinerary hit all the spots I wanted to go to when I was planning for Northern Ireland. It felt like we had just the right amount of time in each place. Our driver did a phenomenal job of narrating our journey and going over the history of the destinations. I would definitely recommend this trip to people wanting to see the Antrim Coast and Giants Causeway.

    Although the weather was awful we still had a fantastic day on the north coast of Northern Ireland.

    The Tour is great value for money, easy to find and the guide was very knowledgeable, not just about the locations we were visiting but also regarding Belfast in general.

    Note: Whiskey isn’t included but well worth the £10 tasting tray. I had a nap on the way home 😴

    Had a wonderful time at the Giant's Causeway. Our driver & guide, Andrew, was very skilled in navigating the Antrim Coast, knowledgeable, and had good craic with everyone in our bus. We had plenty of time touring the causeway, as we decided to pay the £2 return shuttle tickets to and from the rocks, which we definitely recommend doing to maximize your time. We also loved going to the various photo stops in between, though we could've forgo some of them and stayed longer in others. Would definitely recommend.

    Tips: Dress warm and comfortable (layers that you can peel off and put back on again), prepare to walk and to get possibly rained on, bring medicine if you have motion sickness, and bring a separate lunch, which you will eat in the bus, if you don't want to grab a bite at the pub.
