Excellent tour. interesting views of areas from "the troubles". Worth getting off at the Titanic Experience, Stormont (free tour) and City Hall (free tour). Worth doing as Combo Tour with Giants Causeway (£30 booked online)

I've enjoyed City Sightseeing buses in other countries and thought I'd give the Belfast one a go. I've absolutely no regrets, it was fun and informative! The commentary was excellent and all live which added some much appreciated variety to proceedings. I also learned a great deal about Belfast's history which given I've been visiting for 27 years now is... More

Be sure to get this company and not the rival tour company (also with red shirts). We ended up going with them as the rival wasn't going for 45mins and we had a tight schedule. I've been on this tour in 2012 and it was well worth doing it again. Having an actual guide makes it interesting too.

We went on this a few years ago. I'm not from Belfast but my husband is so on my first visit there we did this tour. It was great for both of us as you're very really a tourist in your own city and it was really interesting to tour a city with so much modern history. Sometimes I don't... More

With it being half term holidays i decided to take the kids (6 & 8) on the belfast sightseeing tour. I wasn't too sure it would be their cup of tea but must say they thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour took in all the major sights and was very informative. The customer service was top class and the bus was... More

Disappointed today as we had one day to spend in Belfast and I thought we could maximise our experiences by taking the bus. We went to the Titanic exhibition which was excellent, then we had to wait 2 hours for a bus so missed out on seeing the rest of Belfast 😕. Feeling ripped off!

Hi mothergoose2017 Thank you for leaving feedback but I have to point out that you traveled with our competitor, Titanic and City Tours. We operate a 30 minute service during the year but our competitor operate their service every 2 hours. I can see how you may have been confused as their staff dress in the same uniform as our...

Took the Belfast hop on hop off bus tour Our guide had a subtle witty sense of humour about him which I can truly appreciate. The weather was beautiful and so we're the sights and sounds of Belfast City.

I always do hop on buses when I visit a new city and Belfast wasn't going to be any different. The Belfast hop on bus only has one route compared to other cities but it was still a nice trip. The ticket is a two day ticket and starts from Castle Stret which is the city centre and travels to... More
