Great tour & guides

Titanic Belfast Experience,Giant’s Causeway, Dunluce Castle Day Trip from Dublin
This was a fantastic trip! Connor and Sydney really went put of their way to make sure everyone was looked after and comfortable. I especially enjoyed the black cab tour and learned a lot. The path to giant's Causeway was longer and much steeper than I expected and I couldn't make it all the way down with a bad knee, but it was still absolutely beautiful. Dunluce castle was incredible! But really Sydney and Connor made the whole day great!

This was one of the best tours ever ! Danny and Larry were both great. You could tell that Danny was very knowledgeable and he made the trip super fun. I had a blast! The personal touch was Danny writing all of our names in ogham 🥰! Also he was the best dj ever . On a covid side - masks and sanitizers were provided !

I shared a wonderful trip with my boyfriend on a trip with Maedbh and Larry. They were both kind, and clearly cared about the experience and safety of their guests. Thank you both!

Had a very good experience on the tour. David, the guide told us a lot of facts about Ireland and UK on the trip. He also sang few songs for us which was very entertaining. Sadly, the rope bridge was closed but we had a visit to Dunluce Castle which was great as well. The driver, Paolo was also very good and skillful on the wheels.

Great and memorable experience. The Titanic museum is definitely worth a visit. The Giant's Causeway is impressive and the views are spectacular. We also visited the Dunluce castle. It was a good alternative for the rope bridge which was closed. The tour guide David is the best! He is very enthusiastic and during the long drive he even entertained us with some songs on his guitar. Highly recommended!

Sean was my guide and Brian was the driver. Sean was very knowledgeable about Irish myths, Irish history and game of thrones. Great tour.
