Belfast Poppin
, Aug 2022
Lisa and Chris were great! Very informative and personalized tour. Tons of history in Belfast. Pop on/off at several stops. Complete tour is roughly 1.5hrs. Be sure to stop at St. George's Market. Murals from the Troubles and Peace Wall are a must see!!
, Aug 2022
Tour guide Joe was very knowledgeable and amusing. He made an effort to make his passengers feel welcome and entertained. Good way to see The city and get a flavour.
Not worth the money
, Aug 2022
We did not have a great tour. The sound was fuzzy and the tour guide could not hear when I asked a question. It was pouring rain when we got on the bus and the driver in the second wouldn't let us on even though there was clearly too many people for the first bus. And even though it was 230pm it ended up being the last bus. Not a good experience.
One of the best Hop on Hip off experiences!!
, Aug 2022

Great way to see the City
, Jul 2022
The hop on hop off bus really is the easiest way to visit the sights. Get off where you want. The buses are frequent, the drives are helpful and the live guide is knowledgeable and funny. I had the 2 day pass and used the bus a lot to get to various places of interest.
Great way to see the Belfast sights

Had lovely experience, staff were very friendly, enjoyed the whole trip on bus, the man that was doing the trip was lovely and explained everything very well, he was funny and very professional excellent at his job.
Something for everyone.
, Jul 2022
Bus travels to fast. Only stops/slows for traffic lights. Passed many murals by time they were pointed out. Sculptor of "Working Women" beside Europa Hotel was unknown to guides, passed twice, never a mention. I know there is an interesting back story to this sculpture. The saving grace of the tour is the entertaining, charming guides. Well done to the two we met. 👏👏👏
Perspective matters
, Jul 2022
Excellent tour. Loved learning more about the conflict known as the "troubles" and seeing the related murals and memorials on both sides. The stops were also very convenient.
Fantastic experience!
, Jul 2022

Belfast tour
, Jul 2022
This was the 2nd year running we have done the tour, its a great experience seeing and hearing about belfast but I thought last years was better as the bus driver was telling jokes and lots of information about belfast, this year was a recording just not as good.
