Our guide Derek is a very funny guy which bring lots of fun and jokes during the trip and make you not feel boring while you're sitting in the coach on the road between the spots. He also talk about Irish history which give you a bit idea of Northern Ireland and the rest of Ireland. The view is amazing in Northern Ireland, there're lots of places where used in the Game of Throne, would strong recommend to visit。

A great day out and Derek was an excellent, entertaining and informative tour guide. A mix between a great driving tour and really good sightseeing of Northern Ireland. A really memorable day and massive thanks to Derek for making the day safe and enjoyable for such a big group.

The Tour Guide and Bus Driver was so friendly and very accomodating, got plenty of jokes too and are so knowledgeable of the history of the places we visited. They have stories of fantasy and folklore that is entertaing and inspiring to listen to.

Great day out with informative and knowledgeable driver/guide. Would recommend to anyone visiting Belfast. We booked online prior to travelling but folk who booked in Bekfast the day before got the day trip cheaper than us.

It was lovely, the tour guide was funny and nice. Also enjoyed the coastal route scenery
