Derek was a fantastic driver and guide. He was informative, and hilarious. The day flew by. It was really great that he would show us the Game of Thrones scene before getting off the coach so we could put it into context. We really loved this tour.
Enjoyed our guide and the content. Also enjoyed the locations. Giant's Causeway is slightly overrated, but the Carrick Rope-Bridge was spectacular.
Giant’s causeway offered refreshing walking options (though you had to buy a ticket to get into the visitors centre!); rope bridge also a welcome walk.
I thought the sites were ok. Nothing truly spectacular. And the driver was just that, a driver. He barely interacted with us.
Considered hiring a car but chose the coach trip. Good decision! The driver / host Troy was very entertaining and had good knowledge of the trip and history. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend
A very enjoyable tour of the Giant's causeway and the Game of Thrones location which was enhanced by Derek TT he coach driver's wit and wisdom.
Dereck was an awesome tour guide. He was funny and educational. It’s a wonderful way to visit Northern Ireland as well as geek out on some Game of Thrones knowledge. I would recommend not only the tour but Dereck.
I think the guides name was Dennis? Anyhow, he was great. The whole thing was better than I expected, and would recommend it to anyone. I'd probably do it again myself.
My wife and I had a wonderful day on this tour. It was made even better with our driver and guide Derrick. He kept us entertained with bad puns and jokes and had a well rounded knowledge of interesting things in general. I would recommend this tour to anyone. But remember a great guide makes the difference between a good trip and a great trip.
we had an amazing day and can't praise the tour enough...we saw all that we wanted to see and the driver/tour guide was brilliant...his wit isn't to everyone's taste but we loved him..he certainly made the day a memorable one.
This tour was jam packed with amazing views and sites to see. I think it would appeal to thrones fans or just people who want a comfy and convenient way to see a lot of places with limited time. Driver and our narrator for the day was Derrick and he was terrific!
This tour exceeded my expectations! The sights were breathtaking...Dark Hedges, Carrick a Reed Bridge, Giant's Causeway and Ballytoy Harbour.....The Tour Guide Derick was exceptional! He was witty, engaging, helpful and so knowledgeable...you have a true treasure McCombs'. Thank you for a wonderful day. This is one tour Not to be missed.
Enjoyed every moment of it. Despite the tour being a whole day long, it absolutely flew by. Saw some breathtaking sights and it was a very memorable experience. Though I'm a big fan of GoT, I don't think you need to be a fan to enjoy this tour. You will have fun either way and will definitely appreciate what you come across. Props to our driver, Stuart, too for making us all laugh and feel comfortable across the whole day. Couldn't recommend to people more. It's a must see if you have the pleasure of visiting Belfast.
Stuart was our driver and tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a great day - the Northern Ireland coast road is stunning! Loads of photo opportunities and fantastic scenery. We also went to the rope bridge which was a bit scary in the high winds! We stopped for a nice lunch and the whole day was very well organised. Thank you.
I am a fan of Game of Thrones, although not up to date with my viewing, my daughter is a big fan and wanted to go on the tour when we visited Belfast in April 2019. I read quite a few of the reviews to see what to expect on the tour and there were a lot of great reviews so was really looking forward to the tour. We were really lucky to have Derek who is referred to in a lot of the great reviews and the positive comments are well deserved. Derek is a great guide and certainly made the tour, with his extensive knowledge of Game of Thrones and the areas we visited on the tour. He was entertaining and informative and really engaged with all of us. I felt that we were lucky to be on a small coach, it carried 18 passengers, as it would usually have been a 50 seater I believe. It was easier for the passengers to ask questions and being a smaller group we didn't really have to wait long for the whole group getting back to the coach at each site we visited. The Northern Ireland coast-line and landscape is stunning and the sites, in particular of course the Giants Causeway were amazing. We had beautiful weather, a little bit chilly but really sunny. Derek organised the tickets for the Giant's Causeway and the Rope Bridge so we had nothing to worry about and he organised our lunch order so that the food was ready for us on our arrival at the pub stop. Just to note, it is quite a late lunch, think it was about 2.30pm so we took a drink and some snacks with us. There was a shop at the first stop and enough time was allowed for anyone to pop in and pick something up if you didn't want to spend too much time looking at the first film location (a set of steps used in a scene from series 6 I think it was involving Arya) There were various reviews about the lunch, so wasn't sure what to expect, but lunch was great. There were several options to choose from, I chose a seafood chowder, it came in a small bowl with a slice of rye bread, it didn't look a lot but it was crammed full of seafood including mussels and was really hot absolutely delicious and really filling, we had plenty of time to eat. All in all an amazing tour and I would recommend to fans of the programme, even if you perhaps haven't watched it yet, there are a variety of sights on the tour that makes it worthwhile just to see some of beautiful Northern Ireland, would definitely like to go back and explore more!
Great day out, we were lucky with the weather, but apart from that great organisation of the whole day. Views are amazing, well thought out, and was perfect timming as given just the right time at each stop. Derek the driver was polite, informative, caring and made the day with his knowledge and banter .
Derek you are the bomb....bless your heart! It was awesome....I realize that is mainly an American thing to say but he will understand. I am a Game of Thrones watcher and absolutely loved this tour and would have anyway even I didn't watch. Our host for the day made this an event my sons will always remember. Thank you Derek....
Fantastic day and great value with an unbelievably knowledgeable and entertaining guide (Derek)thanks!
Let's just start off by there is NO BATHROOM on the bus. I read a review that said there was one, they lied, there is not. This is a trip with some beautiful sights to see but you only get about 5 minutes to see them. Most spots we had 15 minutes at the spot but it was a 5 minute walk there from where the bus dropped you off, and we were advised that the bus would not wait for anyone which it did not. People were left behind, which is their own fault. There is a lot of running/ fast walking because of such a short time so make sure you ready and prepared for that because me and my husband certainly were not. We expected a lot of walking but not at that level. Peter was our driver and don't get me wrong he was a nice guy with a few good jokes, but did not even watch Game of Thrones, he just knew the bare minimum of what he needed to know which kind of sucked because we were hoping for some trivia or some excitement about each location which we did not get. As for lunch, you are given a menu for the pub you will stop at about an hour or so before you get there and you tell the driver what you want. Numbered items 1-5 or something. Once you arrive we were told we had 35 minutes until we had to be back on the bus. We did not receive our food until 15 MINUTES before we had to be back on the bus, so we vacuumed up our food and burnt our mouths rushing to fill our bellies and pay for the food within 15 minutes. Immediately afterword you stop at a spot which requires about a 15 ish minute walk down a giant swirly small road, right after you eat. Most people sat that one out because their stomach hurt so bad. The views on this tour are absolutely amazing but please beware of the physical exertion and burnt mouth you will face. You only get a small amount of time at each location and i wish we had a more enthusiastic tour guide.
You know by the title and the locations, the scenery and views will be spectacular. And they don't disappoint. If you take this tour for no other reason, go see the views. That being said, our tour guide helped bring the value up a notch or two. The information about the backgrounds and sites used for the filming of the series was informative and sometimes he referenced a scene or episode so you could tie it back to the series. BUT throughout the trip, he also helped inform us about local life in Northern Ireland, history distant and near, area folk tales and lore, relationship with nearby neighbors Scotland and England, and helped make sure we all had a fun experience. Quite a sense of humor to boot.
We had a great time, both in the bus as on the sights. And the guide/bus driver, Derrick, who was almost a copy of the stand up comedian Rhod Gilbert, was very funny and made jokes the hole journey, but don’t believe everything he says. He was a true Got-fan no matter what he says. Martin and Gina
