Transatlantic Cruise - Only 9 hrs in this port

After reading some reviews it sounds like a black taxi tour might be the way to go with such limited time. Has anyone used them to tour the Causeway? I am concerned about the tight time line.

I think you're best bet would be to hire a private taxi that will pick you up at the docks and bring you back again, this will save much time but will be much more expensive, but if you are willing to share the cost with others, it may be ok. Have a look at www.belfasttours.com they specialise in this field. There are other companies who organise tours and can be found by doing a quick search of the forum, if you need further help just send me a message or ask others on the forum, happy sailing.

Whilst I appreciate that they can be expensive I suggest that you consider what options the cruise line offer - a GC tour is usually one of them - this saves any worries about time-keeping and in my experience you will get a better guide and commentary on the journey - try and get a trip that includes the Antrim Coast Road

I have always utilized the cruise ships tours. I like the safety of knowing that they will guarantee that I will be back to the ship on time. I have enjoyed them in the past. However, the cost continues to go up. On one tour my party of three can save $100/ea for the same exact tour (includes Antrium Coast Road). Not sure what I am going to do. Just wanted to get some advice from others that have looked into the option of independent tours.

Thanks again!
