    We spent 4 weeks traveling around the UK last summer and wanted to share my experience on this tour with my family—it was fantastic! Giant’s Causeway was absolutely stunning, those rock formations and ocean views were unlike anything I’ve ever seen. And as a bonus, we got to swing by some Game of Thrones spots, which was a cool touch.

    Also, we appreciated the smaller bus we traveled in. With more legroom and only about 20 people, it made the journey so much more comfortable and intimate. Plus, our driver’s advice was spot on, knowing all the best ways to time our visits and navigate the sites. He had a great sense of humor and we enjoyed his story telling throughout the day.

    We definitely recommend this tour.

    A very nice time - we discovered with good reason that Odyssey Coach Tours was a popular choice on our cruise visit! Direct booking and confirmation were easy; for timeliness, mind that the parking lot of the port near Belfast can seem more broad and disorienting on ground in comparison to smaller port companions on a passage. Emailed details did help; we thus found our way to Odyssey's coaches and vehicles without too much confusion or delay.

    The tour certainly holds its own, even if on a limited schedule: we were driven by and past Belfast and whisked along the coast, dotted as described with quite picturesque towns and scenery. The Portaneevy viewpoint provides a stunning view around, and it's easy to see why Giant's Causeway is as renowned as it is. Travel was quite comfortable, particularly for the extra leg room bus: USB, WiFi, cushy seats, and with an uncrowded group size inside all while we went more or less en masse in the tourist flow.

    Our guide, Jim, fairly wouldn't be called on the boisterous side of the style, but no fault here - through the course of our tour he was just as informative and forthcoming as other guides and marked his narration with both deadpan wit and sincerity as needed, the latter evident as we wove our way back in the streets of Belfast. Jim also admirably kept reins on our schedule, particularly with some boorish traffic at the Causeway lot. We felt we made the most of our allotted port day - no time for Dunluce Castle, but still back with a hand's breadth of all aboard - and that was in thanks to the fact that Jim knew the read of the road and timings to make the day work.

    Can happily recommend this tour - do pay attention to the confirmation's other helpful notes such as that about the Causeway bus (one GBP per person each way). Many thanks, Jim, Odyssey, for a lovely time.

    First and foremost, Adrian was the best travel guide. He was very personable and I believe he could have been family after our tour. He explained everything that we were going to do. I had my mom, and my daughter to go along with me. He was funny and I enjoyed his knowledge of the Northern Ireland’s history.

    I can't say enough great things about the private tour with Richard! He was an absolutely lovely guide with tons of information and passion around Game of Thrones and the areas visited along the tour. Super accommodating, flexible, friendly and just an overall joy to spend the day with. As a solo female traveler, I felt extremely safe and comfortable and highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves Game of Thrones or even if you're simply looking for a knowledgeable and enjoyable tour guide to show you some of the best of Northern Ireland!

    I booked a day for me and my friend with Fergal for a private driving tour of Northern Ireland. This was her first time in Ireland and I wanted a more bespoke experience than what you will get on a tour bus. The best description I can give is this was like a drive in a new country with a local friend who has the familiarity, experience, and knowledge to show you the true personality of a place. We drove down country lanes with stunning vistas, we stood on cliffs overlooking the sea, we drove down to intimate coves, and we met locals who added color to the day. An added bonus was a delicious lunch at Marconi's Bar & Bistro in Ballycastle. I'm still dreaming of the seafood chowder, and the staff were so charming. Fergal asked what we thought was the highlight of the tour and for me it was all of it! Thank you Fergal for a memorable day and certainly a highlight of our trip.

    My wife and I have done GoT tours in other parts of the world, but NONE compare to our day with Flip. In the beginning I was worried he would become annoyed with my nerd level questions, but much to our surprise, Flip was dialed in with his excitement of the show and the area. Our group was small (3 people, me, my wife and my friend Todd). We went places the "big tours" could not. Saw things they would never get to and had the time of our lives! Flip would drive us to a location, pull out the iPad, show us a scene from the show and it would actual location would be right in front of our eyes! The trees were the same, the rocks were the same and you felt like you were in the show (without the death and ale and nudity). My wife and I had the opportunity to wear real show used jewelry (Queen of the North crown and Hand of the King pin). Ultimately the best part was spending the day with Flip. He is a gem of a fella and I would spend the day with him anywhere in the world if the opportunity ever arrises. Flip was the "secret sauce" of our experience and we hated to see it end. If you're thinking about doing a GoT tour in Northern Ireland, this tour with Flip is a no brainer. Cheers!

    Please be very cautious before booking with this company. We had booked with them while we were on a cruise for the Causeway tour. They sent me an email two days prior to our tour stating that they didn't have enough interest and the tour was cancelled. Unfortunately, I never received the email since the WIFI was a bit spotty on the ship. They didn't contact get your guide or contact me with the phone number I provided. Ok, I understand if you don't have interest and the reason for the cancellation, but this is not why I am warning you not to book with them. Trying to get a refund from them was next to impossible. I sent several emails with no response regarding a refund. Since I booked with get your guide they told me, and quite rudely so, that I needed to get a refund through get your guide and it was my responsibility as the customer to take care of this action. So, you cancel the trip, but will not contact get your guide to get us a refund...makes no sense. Then Allen Tours started bashing the get your guide company, stating this was their fault. Unbelievable. I would stay clear of this company and not use their services. There are many tour companies out there that will provide better service. In the end, Get your guide came through and got us the refund, but Allen Tours, you dropped the ball on customer service here!

    Adrian is a wonderful, very friendly individual, who has a lot of knowledge about Game of Thrones and the local area. Could not ask for a better tour guide .
    We visited many locations where we could take many photos and spend a good amount of time at each location. We even got to wear a cape and pose with some swords. Each location was an experience in itself and comes with refreshers so you know how it relates to the show.
    It’s the ultimate experience for a game of thrones fan and a must.

    Adrian makes the experience, he is an absolute legend.

    This was an excellent way to see Northern Ireland. We were able to stop at many places and since we were the only ones, could spend the amount of time we wanted at each location. Murat was friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and quite entertaining in his descriptions. His love for Ireland was obvious and contagious. The locations we visited were breathtaking! Highly recommend this company and tour...even if you are not a Game of Thrones enthusiast!

    We had an amazing day with Nigel. We stopped by Belfast on a cruise and wanted to get as many as the sights in as possible in a day. Nigel did a great job of getting us everywhere in a timely manner and telling us about his country as we went. He made sure we had enough time to enjoy each stop but kept us on schedule for trying to see all the we had prioritized. We did Ballintoy Harbor , Dark Hedges, Giants Causeway, Carrick a Rede bridge, many overlooks and time for a tour at Bushmills with amazing lunch in town and back to our ship in time. I would highly recommend this over large group tours.

    We met Steve accidentally from getting a taxi and boy are we glad we did! He looked after us the whole weekend and made us all feel very welcome. Took us on all the tours we intended to do. His knowledge and passion for Northern Irelands history and culture is second to none! Super friendly and a genuinely funny man. Lovely vehicle and provided us with water to help with the hangovers ha. We will be coming back to Belfast and will be using him again for all our trips and transport. Can’t recommend him enough

    The beautiful land of Ireland. I vlogged this spectecular island top to bottom in and out of every field, road and hill!

    This location is based along the coast, presents a beautiful array of hexagonal patterend stones and comes with a quirky Irish tale. If you are looking a spot to quick back for the sun going down. This is it.

    Visited during lockdown - super time to go, very quiet.

    Great family activity around parts of the coast you rarely get to see. Kids and grownups thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend this outfit as they really take care of you and your safety on the water in a subtle way that gives you freedom to enjoy coast. Well done Andy and Chris can’t wait to have another go.
