The tour itself is very comprehensive, and it brings you to see all the great attractions in Belfast City. Our drivers and tour guides were brilliant and provided us with excellent information, along with some great jokes. The weather was the only unfortunate thing, but we were able to sit downstairs on the bus while it rained. However, weather permitting, I would recommend sitting upstairs, as the views are better from here.

Well worth to see the city in an hour. Paul was very entertaining especially as I had two teenagers with me. They were kept amused and that’s no easy task.

Took this trip on 16 December and found the Driver and his views very offensive. The did not like the students, as we were here for a graduation this did not go down well. He was critical of professionals and those who lived he what he deemed expensive houses. Then ranted about the Irish beating the English in a stupid game of football. Some could argue that this was joyful craic but to me shouting out at people and giving there own bigoted view is just not on.

I am wandering why on earth you employ such people this cannot be could publicity. I thought Belfast was moving on.

Excellent tour , Paul the guide was the best ever we didn’t want to hop of the bus as we would miss his knowledge and banter. Belfast offers great history and Paul was the ideal tour guide. Great song at the end!

Tour was rushed as if it was a express bus service trying to make up time on the driver last run. No chance to take photos and
Appreciate the ride and views. Very disappointed. Driver even jumped the traffic lights near Titanic exhibition.

I purchased tickets in advance prior to travel through Viator, the reviews were good.

I could not locate any of the stops, everywhere lacked signage or advertising - I’m not sure how people would know about it if not researched in advance. Even the content on the website gave very little information on stops and timings. Barely saw this tour company around the city at all, whereas we spotted another firm’s one a lot more.

We managed to get on one by spotting one arriving at the City Hall where it commences, where we dealt with two somewhat disinterested gentlemen.

We sat downstairs and the commentary volume was ok. The content of the commentary seemed very basic, very detail on the troubles for instance.

The vehicle was very clean though and Covid controls were in place.

The cost was relatively cheap, so perhaps we just got what we paid for. Would personally not recommend.

Hi Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. We are currently not permitted to erect signage at the bus stops but something we are continuing to lobby for. All stops with relevant details are clearly displayed on our website. It's great that you found we were adhering to all covid controls and that you found the tour to be of good value. Thank you

This was a bad trip. The commentary is dire, on a loop. No headsets.
Bus stopped at town hall and we were told to get off, to get on another bus which was full. It rained next bus didn’t arrive. Complained but they didn’t seem to get it. I would either use a public bus day rider which is a fraction of the price or a taxi trip.

Pretty good hop-on hop-off tour which provides a good overview of the area and history. Useful to get your bearings and see some areas on the outskirts of the city. I would recommend doing as soon as you arrive. I wouldn’t bother with a two-day ticket as public transport is easier to get around.

Probably the only Hop-on with no earphones and quality of sound was not as good as usual. Besides that, the tour is very informative and very much worth the 90 or so minutes.
