Gerard was good at what he does and we would would recommend him.
One of the best tours we have ever had! Gerard met us on time at our hotel, great car, nice guy, fun personality! We learned so much about the history of Belfast / troubles in an unbiased and interesting story telling way... them off to the causeway! Gerard "blew our socks off" with fun when at the Thrones site, picked a great spot for lunch, adjusted the trip to suit us (showed us Rory's golf course)... timed things right so we missed the huge crowds. Highly recommend Gerard
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this 5 star review after a very busy day. Brilliant craic and enjoy your photos Thanks Gerard

The itinerary for this tour looked amazing. We actually saw most of the sights. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and it's history. The issue was with the transportation and actually being able to hear him. The cab was not very comfortable and the speaker that he used kept cutting out so most of the information was difficult to hear and we only heard bits and pieces. Would rather have seen the Titanic sightseeing rather than the political murals and one hour history lesson of the IRA.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello James You have been the only one to complain in 180 tours so thank you
Jeri BolemanUnited States
Gerard made sure the tour was customized as we requested. He was prompt in picking us up n the morning, and is very knowledgeable on all matters relating to the area, whether it is history, geology, politics, or other current day events. We highly recommend the tour and his services!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeri What a pleasure to show you my beautiful country. Thanks Gerard
Very knowledgeable and passionate person. We had a wonderful time.

Had a wonderful day - the coast of Northern Ireland was beautiful and we saw much of it. Plenty of pictures. I was not a "Game of Thrones" fan but after seeing so many of the filming locations, I watched an episode when I went back to the hotel just to see if I could recognize any of those locations. It was also interesting getting a history of the more recent political tensions from someone who lived through them.

We had a very tight schedule on our first visit to Northern Ireland and we wanted a day tour with someone fun, knowledgeable, flexible, and passionate about their wonderful country. We found all of that in our tour with Gerard - PLUS some very impressive Games of Thrones components to highlight the entire day. Gerard can provide you with a hybrid tour that shows you the highlights of the northern countryside while showcasing Game of Thrones filming sites, history, and so much more!
James Duncan McNeillCanada
Our trip to the Causeway Coast was a 'roots' trip. We had already done much planning including people to talk with and different sites to visit. In the event the plans changed rapidly during the day. Gerard was more than equal to the task, including contributing to our many conversations, searching church yards, arranging and visiting completely new sites. Intelligent, knowledgeable, and flexible, with a great sense of humour, he made the trip truly wonderful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Duncan l enjoyed the tour very much also and still laugh when we got stuck in the vicars house lol. Thanks Gerard
Laura BensonUnited States
Great experience. The Kernel was welcoming and on time. He went above and beyond to show me and my friends Belfast and Northern Ireland. Best part of my two week tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What can l say brilliant day lol
Murrell Jay EichelbergerUnited States
Great tour. We started with a brief history of Belfast and then proceded on to some memorable locations in The Game of Thrones. Jerry was quite knowledgeable of the scenes and took photos that matched the camera views of the production. Jerry knew of a location used in the upcoming Season 5 and showed them to me. I thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and Jerry's knowledgeable discussions as we traveled. Jerry has a quick wit. Enjoyed his company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jay Enjoyed
Bonnie LaskyUnited States
Gerald was a great guide and a very good driver. We had lots of fun joking and laughing. He is a Photo crazy person so he took us to all the best places and suggested photo sites plus taking our photos and emailing them to us. Can you believe he made a picnic lunch for us!!! and all five of us enjoyed his "Ginger Cake" and chicken wraps. We got to see everything we wanted to and more. We learned in detail about the Belfast history and the progress that has been made toward a better life for all.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Brilliant :-)

My husband and I live in Germany and flew over to Dublin Friday night after work for a long weekend. Our first sightseeing adventure was this tour in Belfast on Saturday morning. We took the train from Dublin to Belfast (super easy to figure out, very nice train) and Gerard was waiting for us with our name on a whiteboard as we exited the train. We chose to do the Game of Thrones tour, along with seeing Giants Causeway, and learning about the troubles in Belfast. Gerard picked us up in his white taxi, an
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Tim :-)
Robin LoveUnited States
Wonderful tour and the highlight of our trip! Gerard is a superb guide - so informative and thoughtful. We booked the tour for the Game of Throne sites, and got to visit the beautiful settings from the series. Gerard's knowledge about the filming of the show and the area was a delight. His explanation of the political history of the Northern Ireland was fascinating (and the Belfast murals are amazing). The opportunity to visit the Giant's Causeway was magnificent. We couldn't have asked for a better day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you For your kind and excellent review. Gerard
John H.United Kingdom
This was the best tour we have undertaken. It combined beautiful scenery with spectacular, natural settings and all accompanied by comprehensive, amusing commentary. The day concluded with the recent political element of the tour and included visiting the areas previously only seen on TV. Gerard managed to explain the tragedies suffered by both sides of the divide whilst keeping a balanced perspective and finished with a hopeful message for the future. A great day, thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you John and Anne This was the best weather ever and brilliant company with The Husseys
Russ KovalUnited States
We had the best day on our tour with Gerald, it was worth every penny. We enjoyed the city of Belfast, seeing things we would never have found on our own and Gerald's stories added so much more to the tour. We enjoyed the drive along the coast, Giant's Causeway, and again, all of the special spots and treats we never would have found on our own. The car is beautiful and we felt like rock starts with all the private attention. Thanks!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much :-) I'm very glad l was able to show of my beautiful country. Gerard

Dale WinogradUnited States
What a day, even had a picnic lunch! Gerald had everything ready, and showed us alot in one day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dale What a tour!
Larry CoyUnited States
Gerald provided us with an Outstanding tour. All things being equal, I wish that we did not spend the time to travel to the Giant's causeway. The tour and commentary of Belfast was by far the most interesting part of the tour and could have used a lot more time to listen to Gerald. He gave us an entire college history course in the span of a few short hours. Gerald is an excellent guide. Thank you Gerald for sharing your vast knowledge and passion of Belfast.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Some people enjoy the Belfast tour more that the Causeway
We spent an enjoyable day seeing the highlights of Northern Ireland and learning many things. Gerald has "the luck of the Irish" as this was the only day of our 3 week European vacation that we had any amount of sun. Jim
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jim
We were fortunate to get Gerald and his white Rolls Royce cab for our tour.He was waiting for us at the cruise ship terminal and gave us a memorable day tour of N.Ireland.He tailored the day for us.We started at the Giant's Causeway, had great photo opportunities along the coast of N.Ireland, were able to see some of the Glens of Antrim. Gerald then gave us an excellent,very passionate tour and discussion of the history and insights of the conflicts of N. Ireland & Belfast. We highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Margo l hope you liked you photos and thank you for the tip. Gerard
Ina ParedesUnited States
Gerard is an excellent tour guide. He knows Belfast like the palm of his hand and made sure to showcase and highlight the best there is to see and more especially Giant's Causeway and the Antrims. The group had fun with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ina I told you l delivery the best tour your group had so far on their cruise.
Dorothy Lynn HolenderUnited States
Gerald gave my family a great tour of the City of Belfast and the Glens of Antrim. He shared his experience and knowledge of "The Troubles" and took us to some of the most scenic areas on the northern coast. We will never forget all that we learned about Belfast and the drive up the coast. We will definitely return to Northern Ireland. Thank you Gerald!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you
Excellent Tour. Easy payment with Paypal. Pick-up and drop-off at cruise port. Car comfortable for 3. Drinks and refreshments provided for free. Gerry's very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Irish accent took a bit to get used to. Took us to all the excellent photo spots. Tour took 6 hours. Did not visit Bushmill distillery as not interested. Did not cross rope bridge but got great photos from a high viewpoint. Lots of time at the giant causeway. Coastal drive was fantastic. Wish more time for city tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Anna for the review sorry about the Belfast tour but after the bomb scares a few weeks earlier l wanted to safe rather than sorry.Thanks very much Gerard
Curtis BatesUnited States
We had a great time on this tour. Gerald was waiting for us when we came off the cruise ship with his white Rolls Royce cab (very cute). The sites were just terrific and Gerald gave a great tour of Belfast including an outstanding discussion of the history and insights of the conflicts. You couldn't ask for much more in the tour. Great job!
Gerard got us though an 8 hour tour in 6 hours (to meet our schedule) without missing a sight. In fact he prepared a box lunch for us to keep us on schedule which was thoroughly enjoyed. Great commentary, great sights, nice car and would recommend this tour highly. Best for about 2 -4 people.
