Honestly, I can't say enough about what an amazing experience this was. Our driver Frank is a history professor who gave us an amazing tour from our ship. In 8 hours we saw Dark Hedges from Game of Thrones, caught a glimpse of King's Landing from the film set, went to Ballinoty Harbor, Ballygally Castle - where we had tea and biscuits, Dunluce Castle, Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and visited the Peace Wall. No way any ship excursion can offer all this. All along the way, we had a personal guide in Frank telling us the history of each place. His stories made us laugh and cry (in a good way). I have never seen my children more engaged and my parents enjoyed it too. Frank even had a bag of Tato chips for us, bottled water and homemade soda bread! I mean come on, talk about service. At the end of our journey, he also left us with some color copied print outs of a couple of the different areas we visited with the history he spoke to us about earlier on the tour. The best thing is having a private guide, he asked what was important for us to see. I didn't care too much about touring Bushmills, we drove by, but skipped it and spent more time at Giants Causeway and the Carrik-A-Rede rope bridge. We also enjoyed the GOT stuff since we watched the show. We were picked up and dropped off right infront of the port, and for the price we paid for 6 of us - there was just nothing on the ship as far as excursions that would've compared. Everyone must do this tour while in Belfast!
