We were a group of eight women from Birmingham UK and all had the most amazing time on this trip. Firstly Patrick the driver was the most outstanding tour guide, brilliantly interesting, funny and good company. The whole tour is an absolute must do, from visiting Carrickfergus Castle, the dark hedges, the Giants Causeway and much more. We had a total blast and will give this tour six stars if we could.
