Booked with them online for 65 euros per person. If you book a second tour with them, they will give you a 5 euro per person discount. The Giant Causeway tour left at 6:30 in the morning and the meeting time is 10 minutes prior in front of the old church on Suffolk. The tour bus is one of those big tour buses that seat 55 people. However, we only had about 25 or so folks so it did not seem too cramped as some folks got 2 seats. We had taken a Paddywagon tour and they packed the bus full of people which was awful. The Extreme Island tour buses were clean and new. We were promptly picked up and made our way to the Belfast area which is 2 hours from Dublin.
First stop was Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge and we were allowed 1.5 hours to walk to the rope bridge and back. The walk there is about 20 minutes on a gravel path and then there are stone steps leading to the rope bridge. The views are very nice.
Next stop was the Giant Causeways. We were allowed 2 hours here and it was plenty of time. You can take a shuttle to there for 1.2 euros or 1 pound one way. But if you walk, it is a paved road and it is pretty much downhill going there and takes about 20 minutes. We walked there and shuttled back.
Lastly, we stopped in Belfast city center for an hour. Throughout the day, if you plan on buying anything bring british pounds or access a cash machine. However, we were able to use a credit card at all the stops.
There were plenty of stops along the way for toilet breaks and a couple of photo stops. Our driver Joe was a great guide and driver. It was a little windy but overall a nice day out and a great tour. By the time we made it back into Dublin, it was close to 8pm. Definitely worth getting up at 5 in the morning for this tour!
