In this day and age, this company is a rarity. I have never received this excellent of service ever before. They exceeded out expectations in every way. They gave us personal service and made visiting Ireland easy and wonderful. It is really refreshing to see people who care about their jobs in the service industry. The transport was clean and punctual! If I knew today was my last day on earth, I would grab the phone and ring Marcos ( best bus driver ever) and Bambi ( hostess with the mostest) and would say “ guys bring the bus around, we’re going on an adventure, and I need you to show me the way”. Seriously easiest way to see all the things you want to see, and didn’t even know you wanted to.

I'm over from England on my own so this trip was perfect for me to have a little bit of company. I met some lovely people on the coach and the experience from from the pick up until drop off was full of interesting facts and a huge helping of humour from our driver/tour guide Paul. He was amazing. The price was an absolute bargain, I planned to hire a car initally but I'm so pleased I didn't for this particular trip. Get booked up asap, you won't be disappointed. The causeway is an awesome sight, such beauty has no words. No wonder the Irish are so proud of their coastline. Amanda from Newcastle Upon Tyne

This tour was amazing. I learned so much about the troubles and got to hear the info from people directly involved in and impacted by it. Putting real human faces and experiences on history was a powerful experience. One of the coolest things I've ever done was this tour. I loved it.

Arthur provided many interesting insights and anecdotes that gave you an idea of what Belfast is all about. His sense of humour kept things very entertaining as well. :)

Beautiful excursion ... The places are very beautiful those in nature, and the guide has made the history and culture of the place fascinating
