Had a fabulous time on this trip, everything went bang on time and our guide was very interesting. We couldn’t go to the bridge due to it still being closed but we were given extra time at the giants causeway (a stunning place to visit) where we took a guided tour with tour guide Johnny, who was brilliant. We had a meal at a game of thrones themed pub which was again timed to perfection by pre booking our food before hand. All in all a real value for money day out.

our driver was Stuart he was brilliant knowledgeable and funny we had plenty of time at each stop well over an hour for lunch nearly 2 hours at the giants causeway which was amazing but be warned you do walk a long way ! a great trip would definitely recommend to anyone and visit again

Fantastic tour guide and driver (Amanda and Nick) who took good care of me when I twisted my ankle on the way to the bus! Amanda really knew her stuff regarding the locations we stopped at, and Nick was great to chat to as well.

Be prepared for long hikes with some uphill specially the giant causeway portion. Make sure you are on Patrick's bus, and you will experience a lot and enjoy the whole tour

My driver and guide Patrick was amazing! Good humor, much knowledge and made me want to visit more of Northern Ireland.
