Ripped-off
Alexandros_F
, Oct 2021
Very expensive tour for what it is (£64 for two people). Not 8 hours and 30 minutes as advertised (lasted 1 hour less- started at 9am and finished at 16.30). The distillery, Dunluce Castle & Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge are cloded to visitors since Covid restrictions started nearly 2 years ago, which makes the tour extremely expensive and complete rip-off. I checked Groupon and the price for the same tour is £10 per person. I also checked other agencies in Belfast and the same tour costs much less. I wish I knew all these things in advance. Stay away.

Hello Alexandro Sorry you are upset we rejected your refund request. And again would like to thank you as we done on the day for your understanding and appreciation of the difficult times we all find ourselves in. We like all tourism businesses are struggling to survive and your review is very helpful and will give us a chance to explain that we are doing our very best and cannot change things which are out of our control. . We do not charge admission charges in our tour price, mainly because we do not control the sites we visit on the tour and due to lack of information from the sites we find out daily if they are open or closed. You booked our small group tour bus with extra leg room to compare it to a Groupon tour is a bit harsh plus the prices you quote are both incorrect. Dunluce Castle is only a photo stop, We stopped at Bushmills for a photo stop as they were closed. We stopped at the view point for the bridge as access to the site is not possible.We stopped at the Causeway for 2 hours and gave extra time at Carnlough and the Dark Hedges.The tour departed at 8.50am and returned at 4.40pm because people returned early including you and it would be pointless sitting on the bus watching the clock before we leave the sites. Below is the information on our website. WE ADHERE TO ALL APPLICABLE COVID REGULATIONS AS DEFINED BY GOVERNMENT. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT ALL SITES ARE OPERATIONAL; HOWEVER, WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO MAKE YOUR EXPERIENCE THE VERY BEST WE CAN. Thank you

We had a great time on our bus tour - it was the highlight of our trip! We enjoyed seeing all of the different stops, and the views from the bus ride were also incredible. The narration of our guide was also a great addition to the tour. Highly recommend this!

Due to covid and non availability of some of the listed attractions and stopping places.The trip was amended slightly to make a full and interesting day never the less. The journey from Belfast along the Causeway Coastal Road stopping at Carnlough and onwards to the causeway was for me the best part. Fantastic scenery most unexpected. During the latter part we stopped at the rope bridge view point as the attraction was closed and likely to remain so for some time. Views very good. As I am of the age when rock clambering is too risky I just walked down and spent some time looking at the fantastic arena of the Causeway itself before fighting the wind on the day to get back up to the main road area. I did not enter the National Trust section so can not comment directly on this. We then went along the road a few miles to view the ruined castle just outside Bushmills before returning to the village for a short break before making another short journey up to The Old Bushmills Distillery which was also closed. We then went to the Dark Hedges to view the road made famous by Game of Thrones. Paul our driver and guide was very good, informative , entertaining and very amusing. 10/10 Tour very good value for money. 10/10 The only small recommendation for future travellers would maybe to take some snack and drink with you. Very little to buy at the Causeway and some establishments closed due to Covid isolation problems and others very busy due to sheer numbers.

A lot to see and experience on this full day tour. A great escape from dull Belfast. The contrasts between Belfast and the countryside couldn’t be any bigger. The dark hedges and the causeway are beautiful

Giant’s Causeway - the most naturally colourful place
MHL
, Sep 2020
Giant’s Causeway (GC) exceeded my expectations & so did the coastal road views! I never heard about Dark Hedges but it is beautiful place especially for me as I love trees. Our driver was absolutely great knowledgable guide with really great entertaining approach! Unfortunately due to Covid-19 we couldn’t visit Bushmills distillery so I cannot give the tour the highest rating as I have no idea how that part of tour would’ve been. Also there was one ‘little’ (for others maybe not even noticed) thing which did not make me feel comfortable: When we returned on coach after GC hike there was strong smoking odour, it fortunately only lasted for about 10min but it made me ‘sick’. I am really sorry but that is the other reason for me to lower the rating.
