My friend Robyn and I work for a Canadian airline and had only flown into Dublin for the Thursday-Sunday. It was a great introduction for my first full day in Ireland on Aug. 23rd. Our tour guide was Daniel and driver was Sylvester. Sylvester was a man of few words but was friendly and fast. Daniel was knowledgable and personable. He even brought his guitar and sang us some songs for entertainment along the way. I wish our actual time on Belfast to explore had been longer. And it was a bit disappointing that at the titanic museum when we asked about audio guides in the museum, the staff advised us that they were not included and that they had to be reserved in advance- none of which we were aware of ahead of time.. and there were group members who continuously disrespected the times set to return to the bus on stops and showed up when they pleased- this of course is out of the tour companies control though. I still would recommend this tour to anyone new to Dublin/Ireland.
I would have given this tour 5 stars except that it did not spend enough time at the Titanic museum. This tour only allocated one hour and 45 minutes at the museum. The tour was combined with the Game of Thrones tour and we made a 20 minute stop at the dark hedges. Those 20 minutes plus the free time in Belfast could have been better spent at the Titanic museum.
It was a great Tour, all the attractions are truly special and it was a great program for one day. In addition, Lisa and Yuri made it a smooth and enjoyable journey. Lisa as the tour guide told us about Irish history and many interesting legends and myths surrounding the attractions.
Lisa was very nice and Yuri was again the best driver, the Giant’s Causeway was amazing, the only thing was a bit disappointed: the Titanic museum. Of course it is not the team’s fault, I might have bigger expectations.
Stellar exhibits. Poignant and powerful oral histories. Tremendous insight of the Irish influence in world affairs. Superbly coordinated displays.
