Full description
This tour, specially created for cruise ship passengers, will cover some of the area's best sites, including Belfast City Hall and the International Peace Wall. Heading up inland, visit the Dark Hedges made famous by Game of Thrones TV Series, which is a romantic, atmospheric, tunnel-like avenue of intertwined beech trees planted in the 18th century. Next, head to Dunluce Castle for a photo stop. The iconic ruin of Dunluce Castle bears witness to a long and tumultuous history. First built on the dramatic coastal cliffs of north County Antrim by the MacQuillan family around 1500, the earliest written record of the castle was in 1513. Last but not least, you'll see the Giant's Causeway, an area of around 40,000 interlocking basalt columns - the result of an ancient volcanic eruption.

Signed up for the express tour but ended up getting put on the longer one. Not sure why. Got to see some nice places along the way, castle, rope bridge, a few game of thrones stops and had a nice mural tour at the end. Was longer than we were planning for but nice that it worked out. Scenery was outstanding along the drive. Great tour guide and the Causeway is spectacular and a highlight of our British Isles trip.

Although the bus was taken from a point in the city, they had the courtesy to pick us up at the cruise terminal. We were also returned to the same terminal at the end of the tour. The driver was explaining all the points of interest. He was even patient and waited for the uncivils who took more than 15 minutes to return after the agreed time at the Giant's Causeway. Very satisfied with the service, I recommend it.

Highly recommend the tour. Lots to see and plenty of time to see the sites. The guide/driver coordinated the pick up time with our ship's arrival. He also saved us some nice seats in the middle of the bus rather than have us all sit at the back. We enjoyed his sense of humor. Really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.
