Great trip, thoroughly recommend. Very informative indeed and I was fascinated with the Peace wall and the "divide" really eye opening! Stopped at the Titanic exhibition also worth a visit.

One of the BEST tours that you will need to do while in Ireland is seeing Belfast Giants Causeway. It is breathtaking and mysterious on how rocks were formed by mother nature...

Great opportunity to take in the highlights of the city. Would recommend a 2 day pass and taking the live tour and audio tour as you learn something a little different on each.

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience! The driver/tour guide was so knowledgeable on the history of Belfast and I learnt a lot!

Informative, great way of seeing Belfast a good tour to do
