Journey of a Lifetime
Elizabeth_C, Sept 2023
The tour guide was amazing. He told many jokes and stories and made the journey fun. He went above and beyond. Then, showed us this beautiful Irish film. I will definitely recommend this tour.
Best day tour from Dublin to see all the best!

The tour guide was the biggest asset and that was half the battle. The other half was pretty good weather and overall it made for a successful day. You should allow at least 3 hours for Belfast.

Excellent Tour! So worth it
Heather_S, Sept 2023
This was an amazing tour and definitely with it. The giants causeway is impressive and really special. Not something you’ll likely see again. The pub there was really cute too, and the portions of fish and chips is huge, so you could share it. The ladies working there were really sweet too. And I really enjoyed walking through the dark hedges and it was worth the quick stop to see castle black (ie dunluce castle). It was a lovely trip! The tour guide Peter was really informative. I loved his stories and his Irish Pride definitely showed and I appreciated it. Rajeet (I’m sure I spelled that wrong) was a great driver and maneuvered the huge bus with precision! He was also super friendly and didn’t mind loading and unloading my bags for me. They’re a great duo! I ended up leaving the tour in Belfast and staying there one night. They let me bring my luggage which was nice. So. You could do as I did, and make this a way of getting yourself to Belfast if you so choose. The tour had 2 hours there, which would’ve been a great amount of time to see the downtown area. I would’ve given this tour 5 stars, if not for the cramped bus. I took a similar tour that was a double decker and it had plenty of space and a lot of single folks got both seats to themselves. This was not the case on this tour with Finn McCool’s. The bus was one level and the seats were so crammed in that my knees touched the seat in front of me. I’m 5’4 so I was a bit surprised. And if the person in front of you puts their seat back, it’s literally in your lap. Eating would be difficult as you may spill crumbs on their head LOL! I’m really not exaggerating I promise. I’m glad I left the tour and didn’t have to endure the 2 hr ride back to Dublin. Please get a larger bus or book fewer on the tour.

Peter our tour guide was so informative and made it a wonderful experience. Our driver Rajeev(sorry on spelling) made us feel safe on bus. An altogether wonderful experience for a first timer!!!
Do it.
Holly_G, Sept 2023
Worth the trip! Good amount of time at each stop. Quiggs and Rajeev were awesome! We enjoyed hearing about Ireland and got some good folk tales as well. Quiggs sincerely seemed to want to make sure everybody was taken care of and took time to talk with everybody separately. Highly recommend.
An Irish Introduction
Kinsie_Z, Sept 2023
It was an absolutely stunning trip. Our guide, Delaney, was knowledgeable and friendly. Jokes, history, and some fun. This made such a great introduction to Ireland, it’s people and history.
JACOB_D, Sept 2023
Great day out with Ryan, our tour guide. He sang on the bus, had lots of jokes and kept us thoroughly entertained throughout the day. Highly recommend this trip.

Mark and Brian are a very good team and are both very helpful with their knowledge of the area. It was perfect weather to see everything they pointed out!
Best Tour Guide- Ryan, and Best Tour!
Sarah_T, Sept 2023
Our guide, Ryan, was absolutely fantastic. It’s amazing that he was once in a Viking show as well— he kept the mood so lively and fun— he was honestly the best tour guide I ever had and I’ve traveled the world extensively for 20 years now. My parents are tough critics and they loved him and the tour. Giants Causeway is not to be missed! Best part of our entire trip and way better than the Cliffs of Moher!
The Causeways was well worth it .
roylener2000, Sept 2023
I enjoyed this tour. Giant Causeway was amazing . Harry was a great guide, very friendly . There was a man on my tour who complained about the heat on the bus and he let it ruin his whole day . I had front row seats to his exaggeration . He said it’s probably 80/90 degrees . While he said that, I had two t-shirts on, with a long sleeve thermal, a sweater and rain jacket. It was not that warm . At the end I heard his wife trying to talk him into not saying anything further to Harry, but of course he did . He complained to his wife that he himself had to tell the driver to turn down the heat, it should’ve been the tour guide doing his job . I disagree, Harry was responsible for the tour and guests. The driver was responsible for the bus . I also heard him say that he was going to give this company a piece of his mind, so that is why I’m writing this, everyone else who saw everything go down had a different view of that man’s. Harry, well job on your 5th day, from the “non looking American!” 😂
Quiggs Rocks!
Richard_S, Aug 2023
First, Quiggs & Tomas were amazing. Quiggs knowledge and humor were fantastic and added much to the somewhat lengthy bus ride. Dunluce Castle was a bit disappointing as you could only see it from a distance. The Dark Hedges were a bit overrated but still cool. Giants Causeway on the other hand was fantastic! Picturesque views, breathtaking geologic formations, good trails, absolutely perfect. Belfast was also quite fun and a vibrant city.
