Thomas from California's Review

“If I could could give this man more than 5 Stars I would, his passion and knowledge are second to none. This was the best trip my wife and I have ever been on.”

Donna from Washington's Review

“This day we spent in Belfast with Frank (Francis H.) was one of the highlights of my entire trip. I could not have asked for a better day. So fortunate to be able to experience Belfast this way. I feel like I made a friend for life.”

Rachael from New York's Review

“Frances was an outstanding guide. We saw the beautiful coastline and ancient castles too. We would highly recommend him as this was the perfect day.”

Seb from Honolulu's Review

“The best thing is having a private guide, he asked what was important for us to see. I didn’t care too much about touring Bushmills, we drove by, but skipped it and spent more time at Giants Causeway and the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge. For the price we paid for 6 of us – there was just nothing on the ship as far as excursions that would’ve compared. Everyone must do this tour while in Belfast!”

 

“We gained so much in not only seeing exciting locations but also just got a very memorable experience that we will never forget and took home with us a greater understanding and knowledge of Northern Ireland. I recommend this tour and Frank as a tour guide you will NOT be disappointed by, no matter how bad the weather may be.” Genette (New York)
