The tour was informative and delivered professionally. However there is a turf war in town between bus tour companies. The sales rep and his counterpart from the rival bus company approached us simultaneously (both wearing red jackets so it's not immediately obvious they weren't colleagues) and we were then treated to an embarrassing display of tit for tat insults. "Our... More

Would love to say how good our tour was, sadly this was ruined by an ignorant and racist Englishman who spent half of our tour spouting his nonsense upstairs. Once we complained to the driver he stopped at the next possible place and took the man off the bus for a word. Although Mr bigot argued his racist agenda, the... More

It was December so it's going to be cold, but it was funny but very informative. You really must buy a ticket for this as it does you for 2 days so you can scoot about the city to your hearts content. Great value, good guides.

An excellent overview of the city and its various attractions. The narrator was very good and made for an enjoyable and insightful journey. Would recommend starting early and alighting at various sights in order to get the full experience. Ticket valid for two days so would recommend using this across both days and visiting the top attractions.

Having booked a long weekend in Belfast, for the weekend before Christmas, I began to regret it as I formed the opinion that there wasn't much that my wife and I would want to do or see in Belfast once we'd exhausted the Christmas Market. Now that we're back home, I realise that I made two major mistakes here. Firstly,... More
