2 day ticket (had combo with titanic ticket) lots of information going round from the staff and plenty of humour. Stopped at points but can pick up at any bus stop.

There is a lot to see and do in modern Belfast, and we found the City Sightseeing buses a great way to get around - easy to use and reasonably priced. We could “hop on/hop off” to visit places of interest at any point. Tourists...More

Great wee hour or so on this hop on off bus. Guides were informative and humourous. There are two different ones (different routes) which I didn’t find out until the day I went home. Other than that fab wee bus that is super busy.

Went on a city bus tour and was not disappointed. The guide was excellent on the history of the city and drops some good stories along the way. You can get on and off at the stops of your choice. Good value for money.More
