What an amazing storyteller! We toured with Flip winter 2019 and had a marvelous time. His love of Northern Ireland and cool facts about Game of Thrones intrigued us. He took us to wonderful local eateries. It's an experience that you'll be talking about for a long time. Don't miss an opportunity to Hang out with Hodor! Len + Judy

Well all I can say is wow, my wife and I had organised a trip to Antrim with the kid's and decided to bring my parents, my mother is a massive game of thrones fan so after a bit of research we found that giant tours with its excellent reviews was the right choice, and its times like this you need to thank trip advisor for its wealth of information because we had one of the best times ever on a trip in Ireland and we are from Ireland. Flip is the most genuine and good natured tour guide we have ever come across his actual love for Ballycastle and all the surrounding natural beauty spots really show through which makes it so enjoyable. He really gave us a great experience and a day of memories and made our little trip to Antrim one that will be hard to beat. I'm from Dublin and honestly didn't really know how beautiful Antrim is, Flip showed us some amazing sites and had great knowledge of the whole area so I would truly recommend a visit. 100%

Hello Ray and all the family! Thanks so much for taking the time to write this great review. Unfortunately I have only just read it now or I would have responded sooner–no email notifications and lack of skills! It was a great day with you all this summer and in the sunshine too. That’s always a bonus, as you know on this island. The kids were fantastic fun as were you all. I thoroughly enjoyed the day! If you’re up this way again please give me a shout. I think the public toilets will be open! Lol Thanks again Flip PS. I hope the Dragon rubber duck is being well looked after!?

Flip was wonderful to work with in planning our day together and even better in person. He knew all the cool places to take us to and shared the best stories. We learned a ton about GoT AND Northern Ireland. It was one of the best days of our visit to Northern Ireland!

We had a great day with Flip. He was incredibly hospitable and knowledgeable. He made sure we saw all of that GOT sites and the natural sites of Ireland’s beautiful northern coast. His insider knowledge on filming added to the experience. There were five of us on the tour and Flip made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. We highly recommend a tour with Flip and look forward to a return trip.
