Good points. Knowledgeable and informative guide and a good way to get an oversight of this (previously?) divided city. Poor points. If you choose to join the bus anywhere other than the start/finish it is not at all obvious where to do that. In fact the buses seem to stop at the regular bus stop. We visited on St Patrick's...

We were only for a day in Belfast so we had to move on quickly and the Hop On-Hop Off tour was the best option. The whole tour lasts for about 90 min with the possibility of getting off the bus at several stops and hopping on again. Students ticket was £10.50 and it is valid for 2 days. Lots... More

The tour guide was Sean, and he was very informative, funny and helpful. Tops marks to the driver too on 7th March with Sean,... More

Having never been to Belfast before, what better way to see it than on a sightseeing tour? Your ticket, which is valid for two days, is ridiculously good value and gives you unlimited access to a fascinating tour around this enchanting and wonderful city, steeped in history. On our first day, the "tour" was delivered via a recorded audio track,... More
