An enriched experience
Jun 2020
It was an enriching experience! I loved every part of the trip, including the Irish music played on the bus - but I would have loved to hear some of The Cranberries music too! Our tour picked us up from Dublin and went to Belfast, Giant's Causeway, the rope bridge, and to the dark hedges in June 2019 (pre-COVID pandemic). The only thing I wish I had was more time at Giant's Causeway because walking down the cliffside (and back up) was a quite trek for me, particularly on a tight schedule. Obviously, the schedule that is kept is that way for a reason though so it's understandable. Either way, I loved the tour and I would take a tour with Finn McCools Tours again if given the chance to go back to Ireland.

Remarkable Day Trip
Nov 2019
It was amazing trip! The best part was when went trough the Rope Bridge where I could see a wonderful view of the cliffs and ocean. Another awesome part was walking trough the Giant's Causeway when we could take great pictures and spent marvelous moments among friends. Both tourist guide and driver did an excellent job during the trip. For me this trip was unforgettable, literally a perfect day.
