The tour has little to offer very disappointing the bus was all steamed up so could not see much. The guy selling the tickets was more interested in his mobile phone and smoking a cigarette.

I took this tour in August 2018. The tour was fine and covered all the main point of interest. I was however outraged to find the audio on the tour was given by an English man. In this troubled city where the majority oppose British...More

Yesterday 8th September turned into an absolute farce. Upon arriving at the Tourist Centre (stop 1) purchased our tickets then to be told that the ONE bus running and due at 11:30am was going to be approximately half an hour late. That was fine and...More

I have to totally agree with Ricky F in his assessment of the quality of this tour compared to Belfast tour. The major complaint I have is that the commentary was from a tape and too many times the synchronisation with the attraction was well...More

Not really a hop-on hop-off bus as it only does the circuit every hour so if you hop off you’ve got an hour to occupy before being picked up. With the possible exception of Free Derry, the only places where an hour could be usefully...More
