Exceptional day tour

This was an amazing tour to northern Ireland. The Giant’s Causeway is beautiful, stopped at the castle, a few other places along the way. Enjoyed wandering around Belfast. Luke was a fantastic tour guide, and Vedran has mad driving skills!

Another Wonderful trip

The Giant Causeway is beautiful. It is a natural wonder of the world. Noel was our guide and he was excellent. He would volunteer to take a picture of our family. Dunluce castle was a small ruined castle so the bus just passed by it. It was good enough for me. Belfast had a festival on that Sunday. So many foods! If you wanted to see the Peace wall, you had to take a Black cab. You would not have enough time to see Belfast. Thomas was a great driver. This bus hasd a toilet so it really helped in an emergency. I highly recommend this trip.

So expensive!
Sara_L
, Jun 2022
It was a nice experience but in my opinion really expensive! I thought that we would enter to visit some monuments such as the castle or the rope bridge, or that we would go with the tour guide so that he could explain it to us. But it was not like that! For example, we arrived to Belfast and we were totally lost and without mobile internet to know what monuments to see so I couldn't take advantage of anything! Also, I have problems with Viator with the reserve and the prices (of the same tour) changed all the time, maybe today it’s 78€ and tomorrow 85€ and some hours later 78€ again, so be careful! It was so annoying because I paid the high price for an issue that it was not my fault!!

Hi Look at the review before your and the review after, There is more but this is easy to see!!!! Same tour, Same bus, Same day I am soo sorry you booked a tour you could not afford. There was many other "budget tours" available on Viator. Why did you not book one of them. I expect because of all the bad reviews they have. Now you book a tour you cant afford and leave a bad review instead of booking a tour that you could afford Ps. we did not visit the rope bridge because its NOT mentioned. No tour company can visit it. So we dont advertise it The castle is CLEARLY mentioned as a photo stop

The bus was simply way too hot. I feel some air coming through but it was a very hot ride most of the trip. Otherwise I would've given the trip a higher rating.

Peter, our guide, was amazing! Thomas was a fantastic driver! He took time to tell us the history of Northern Ireland. We had enough time to see the spectacular Giant's Causeway as well as explore Belfast. Highly recommend!

Power Packed Day in Belfast, Ireland
ladyoftheisland
, May 2022
My husband and I took the 12 hour bus tour from Dublin to Belfast in May of 2022. The tour was perfect. Our tour guide, Patrick, was exceptional and was attuned to the expectations and hopes of each individual on the tour. He is intellectually and passionately aware of the history, arts and humor of Ireland, both past and present. . As two English Literature majors, we loved his attention to Jonathan Swift, James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, Trinity College, the political history of both Irelands, and so much more. Our driver, Brian, was outstanding--an excellent driver who suggested little additions to the trip where weather, traffic, or interests permitted. The two made an excellent team who enjoyed what they did, and continuously improved upon the arranged trip for us! We were able to add the Titanic Museum into our day, and Finn McCool Tours arranged half price entrance tickets for those (18) wishing to take this excursion, while others went into the city and explored the incredible history of Belfast. We chose the Titanic exhibition because for us, it was literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we were not disappointed! This surprise addition completed everything I had dreamt of seeing on this first visit to Belfast. The driver and guide maintained their schedule and interacted both on the bus and at sites with our tour members. They suggested best photo OPS at the castles and filming sites for Game of Thrones. Offered to take individual pictures at all stops, and had us climbing into the nooks inside trees for best shots along the Dark Hedges tree-lined road. It seemed there wasn't a site that had been overlooked in the tour planning, and it would have been impossible to accomplish these visits in a single day without the knowledge and precision of the pre arranged components. One couldn't possibly have this day without the tour. To maintain our pace Patrick used markers on white board to assure all members understood the return-to-the-bus times.Whether visual or aural learners or English language level interfered, each of us understood the necessity of punctuality. Our group members were a world diverse collection of all ages and languages, and there was not a single misunderstanding because of Patrick's voice, visuals, and preparedness. The price was more than reasonable at around 85.00 US dollars each. Viator as the parent company of Finn McCool Tours has also worked to serve the needs and wants of the traveling class all over Europe, and specifically Ireland on this last tour. Five Stars to Viator, Finn McCool, Northern Ireland and our fabulous Guides! Respectfully, Scott and Shauna Leggat USA
