Excellent tour !!!
, Jul 2022
Is was a very pleasant experience. A lot of information, historical information about Ireland, Irish, British. Enchanting tour. Deserve every penny. If you visit Belfast, don't loosed.
Sad memories.
, Jul 2022
Seeing the Peace wall and streets that heard about in the troubles.The buses were very busy.The old buildings are very impressive.
Bus top
, Jul 2022
The best part of the bus ride was sitting on top of the bus, and we stopped off at the George's market and bought cool stuff
, Jul 2022
Titanic , the Mural walls .. only in Belfast do you find such . Amazing experience . Would love ❤️ to come bavk
No refund if sick - wait to book local NOT Viator
, Jul 2022
Booked the trip for hop on hop off bus months in advance, but my wife came down with a fever and we had to stay on the cruise ship. When applying for a refund we were denied Don't book with Viator, just get it when you get to Belfast or you too maybe sorry you did
Hoho is fine but not the same as it used to be
, Jun 2022
The Hoho for Belfast is a nice way to see the city and choose stops to circle back to. The route and number of stops is not as robust as it was in 2018 when I used this service. The number of Murals you see is greatly diminished and the Parliament Building which is awesome is no longer on the route. Them run times for the bus is also shorter. Last bus at pm. If you can start first thing in the morning it is better to use this as transport to stops you want to see. It is still an OK means to see the city but changed from what it used to be.
, Jun 2022
Tour guides are hilarious, had all of us laughing! I had a lovely time even though I did the tour alone.
Certainly worth the money and time, but make sure you get on a bus where you can understand the guide.
, Jun 2022
Seen 2 buses with 2 different guides. 1 guide/bus had very distorted sound (mike to close to mouth) and therefore was not understandable (rating 1). The other guide/bus had much better sound and was very amusing: rating 5.
, Jun 2022
Don’t make a mistake in purchasing your tickets!! They will NOT refund your $$ The tour was good..The purchase was mistakenly a 2day and I only needed a 1 day…Viator, knows I only used 1day but refused a partial refund !

City Sightseeing Bus
, May 2022
Great orientation to the city! Something different..... Most have head phones with pre-recorded commentary. All 3 of these had a live commentary...... Must better.
, May 2022
Informative commentary, easy to hop on and hop off. Useful to get around different bits of town as well

Great Intro to Dublin.
, May 2022
We had a delightful tour. Our driver was Greg and he was great. Entertaining and informative. Take the full tour (about 90minutes) if you have time, and then go around again to the various places you want to explore (and there are many). SO glad we did it that way. My only complaint is that we never did get anything that told us where to get the bus. I got lucky pick it ng the town center and finding someone who was selling tickets to our tour.
Fun tour around town
, May 2022
Fun guides and a great way to see everything in the city and eases up on some walking. Also cheaper than an Uber if you have multiple places you want to see in a day.
, May 2022
Last bus not turning up even though we were at pick up 25 mins before it was due. No signage to show pick up and drop off places.

We chose a 2 day pass & did the trip three times. Each one was diffetent & we learnt something new each time. Paul's songs wete a great addition to the trip.
A good tour
, Apr 2022
A good tour around Belfast that also takes in some of the less happy memories of its recent past. Eye opening for sure.
A fascinating summary of Belfast
, Apr 2022
I love these Hop-on- Hop-off bus tours that are available in various European cities for the fascinating facts that they produce that bring the City to life. The Belfast Tour was, like all of the City tours, superb!!
