Dagtrip naar Belfast vanuit Dublin
Halverwege de ochtend komt u Noord-Ierland binnen en bereikt u Belfast, de hoofdstad van het land. Hier krijgt u een bustrip van Belfast met gids, met onder meer de vredesmuren van Belfast die fungeren als scheidslijnen tussen de katholieke en protestantse gemeenschappen. Kijk uit naar de muurschilderingen die de verhalen over de geschillen vertellen van beide kanten.
Na een luchtige inleiding in de politiek van Belfast hebt u ongeveer één uur vrij te besteden en uw gids zal u graag tips geven voor aanbevolen plekken voor de lunch. Gesuggereerde attracties in Belfast zijn onder andere de kathedraal van Belfast (ook wel bekend als St Anne's Cathedral), of de beroemde Belfast City Hall op Donegal Square.
Na de lunch neemt uw gids u mee naar de HMS Caroline. Dit is een echt gevechtsvaartuig dat zowel in WO1 als in WO2 dienst deed. Het was de laatste nog varende overlevende van de Slag bij Jutland. Daarna krijgt u het hoogtepunt van de tour, de Titanic Experience Tour. Hier krijgt u alle informatie over de tragische eerste en laatste reis van de Titanic over de Atlantische Oceaan.
Helaas komen alle geweldige avonturen aan een einde. Maar de herinneringen zullen uw leven lang bijblijven dus leun achterover terwijl uw gids traditionele muziek laat horen en u nageniet van uw dagtrip naar het noorden op de weg terug naar Dublin.

My wife and I were extremely pleased that we decided to take this day trip to Belfast. The people were very nice. Lots of history. We visited the Titanic Museum, the IRA history museum (which was fabulous!!!), and were given the opportunity to ride with a local who injected more history and facts than you could ever imagine. We has some free time later in the afternoon. We were fortunate to catch a guided tour of the city hall. Very fascinating. We highly recommend this trip.
The titanic part of the trip was excellent and super informative. The cab tour was poorly done. It felt as if the company used was a friends. They didn't wear uniform nor did the have labelled cabs. We past many other companies running very professional services in this area and ours just felt off. However the driver was very informative and delivered the information well. The food stop was terrible. Only one restaurant option with food sitting all day. Didn't eat until 2pm. Then rushed into Belfast city with only one hour to look around. We got dropped off and told to go shopping. No maps or historical information given just left to our own devices. I wouldn't recommend this tour to see Belfast city. Just catch the local bus in for 10 euro
Excellent guide; very interesting and educational. Unfortunately our black cab tour was cut short due to a couple not returning to the bus on time. Suggest 10 minute frace period at the most, not half an hour.
I wish I could have more time there.
Had an amazing time in Belfast. The guide was helpful.
Noel was so knowledgeable and went above and beyond with the time we had. The tour was non-biased, and showed the real Belfast.
So the bus broke down outside of Dublin not halfway to Belfast. Nevertheless the tour guide / bus driver kept us all entertained with his ever-present sense of humor, almost as if it were a part of the tour. One has to be amazed at the historical knowledge of these tour guides as they mix Irish history with anecdotes that keep you always wanting more. in the end we were able to see everything we were scheduled to see including plenty of time to visit a local eating establishment (pub) for lunch. I highly recommend this tour. A big thank you to Jim, the tour guide that day.
This was our absolute favorite tour in Ireland. The tour leader was well informed, gracious and did a wonderful job shepherding us through Belfast. We were especially moved during the tour of the catholic and protestant walled communities where you can cut the tension with a knife. The tour leader pointed out that he has experienced folks jeering his tourist van in the protestant area and even noted that a neighborhood tavern could possibly be a life threatening experience for someone from the Irish republic as he noted that there are still extremists on both sides who want to rekindle the violence. The graffiti is something to behold on the barriers between both communities. We also saw a W W 1 war ship which was interesting and of course, the spectacular Titanic experience which REALLY is an experience for those still enthralled with the story of this famous ship. Belfast is about 2 hours from Dublin and the tour does include a nice rest stop in each direction.
THIS TOUR IS NOT AS ADVERTISED! The fact that Viator has known for 2 weeks and still has this up is insulting to customers. This tour does not go to Down Cathedral or Dundrum castle, it instead has changed so that you go to HMS Caroline and the Titanic Experience. This was the worst tour I ever experienced, I would not recommend it. The tour guides had no idea what was going on, we drove around aimlessly for an hour while they tried to find the peace walls. It was miserable, I wouldn't recommend it at all. I wish I could give it zero stars.
