Really good tour to go on if you've haven't visited Belfast before. The person on the microphone was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour! Also it's handy to get around and visit the top attractions because it's a hop on hop off bus so you don't need to pay for transport - money saver!!

Our tour guide was Derrick who was wonderful, friendly, and knowledgable which is great given he has been on site for filming of the show and drives extras arounds for the show. There are a couple things I think are helpful... More
