Garard made certain that we were comfortable and saw all we were asking for — sorry ice hockey isn't a thing in Belfast yet—not his fault. We are ready to learn even more than he introduced us to about Belfast and the beautiful scenery around it. Our first ever whisky tasting and venture through the game of thrones sites made super memories. The authentic small town pub and gorgeous countryside were highlights for us. He was so accommodating and we would always ask for him again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The Belfast bombers ice hockey team lol Thanks Gerard

I'm a crazy researcher when it comes to selecting a private guide, as I try to get the most out of my travels. I can genuinely say Gerard's tour was incredible, ranking in our 'all time best'. I'm struggling to find the right words to praise Gerard's tour, we can't stop talking about it, that's the highest compliment I can give. We were enjoying a fabulous day, then Gerard made an impromptu stop that blew us away, making lasting memories. Book with Gerard it will be a day to remember!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Told you Lynne your the captain ��✈️ Thanks Gerard

We had a brilliant time with Gerard! He was very personable and went out of his to make sure we enjoyed the tour. The pace was perfect- he allowed us to linger where we liked and move quickly through locations we didn't feel took as much time. The transportation was clean and he was a great conversationalist. We've already referred him to a friend who is headed up there this weekend! ("Eyes closed, eyes open, cheese and onion!" LOL!)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ding ding that was a very good review lol Come as visitor leave a friend Mr Gerarrd
Touring Belfast with Gerard M was incredible! He has so much knowledge of the history and the politics of Belfast! He explained years of complicated politics in a detailed but understandable way! And we also saw the beautiful sights!! Thoroughly enjoyed the tour! I highly recommend this tour with Gerard M!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Angie and the gang Love showing our beautiful city and how much we all have came on. Gerard
Rosemary B.Las Vegas, NV, United States
Gerard is a terrific guide. We learned so much about the history of Belfast and Northern Ireland. His narrative, his photos and his local knowledge really made this an excellent tour. You can't go wrong with Gerard.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you totally delighted
Carol LazarUnited States
Gerard is entertaining! He gave us a fantastic Game of Thrones tour through Northern Ireland. His enthusiasm was great & he also provided us with non stop history & stories about Ireland and the locations we visited. We made tons of stops. Half our group hadn't even watched GOT but it didn't matter- we enjoyed the tour as much as the GOT fans! Can't recommend Gerard highly enough! His car & Driving were excellent, water, snacks & satellite service! 6 out of 5 stars!

Barbara MacDonaldUnited States
Gerard was a really great guide. He had great content and information about the area and as well as sharing history- both his personally and of the country. His vehicle was the best- filled with snacks and drinks as well as delicious homemade ginger cake made by his mom. My husband was stung by a horsefly and Gerard bought him antihistamine while we were at lunch. It was a great day in Belfast with Gerard!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Barabra I hope you came as a visitor and left as friend.Thank you for booking myself and enjoying our beautiful country side. Thanks Gerard
Cynthia SchwartzUnited States

Teresa R.United States
BEST 2019 GAME OF THRONES TOUR ! I planned the trip with Gerard 9 months ago, I had so many questions and Gerard said don't worry just book it. So I did, he worked hard at getting us through traffic and tourists to get us our photos. He is a complete gentleman, and host. He had drinks, snacks , cider and other drinks available for us. He was more than willing to stop for breaks-coffee, bathroom. He took the most amazing pictures for us and even used his cell phone to create 3D photos and videos.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Teresa Loved the review and my time with you both.I hope you enjoyed your dragon egg and enjoyed your videos and photos. Thanks Gerard
Luna Reich RompaSwitzerland
Gerard picked us up just in front of our hotel, with drinks and snacks for the whole day, and mum-handmade-super-tasty-gingercake (thank you Mary!). And then the show started: so many great spots, lots of information, amazing pictures and a hilarious video (what a fight with the dragons!). A highly recommended tour with a wonderful guide, just don't miss it. Many Stark-thanks for this perfect day Gerard, the pack survives, there is only one throne! The French-Swiss couple, aka Lu and Ben Stark
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lu & Ned Stark The video still makes me laugh and what a brilliant day we all had. Arya for the thrones Mr Gerarrd
Chuck AllenUnited States
Gerard was good at what he does and we would would recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Chunk
Kimberly BrattonUnited States
The tour covered a lot of sites from Game of Thrones. Gerard had pictures from the show at each of the sites so you could really visualize the experience. He also provided a lot of history of the area and pointed out other sites of interest. It was a day full of interesting and relevant sites. I enjoyed it very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kimberly, traveller reviews are extremely important as they help others decide wish tour they should take, and know they will receive a quality tour thank you for taking the time to write this amazing review. Thanks Gerard Stark lol
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
James AchenbachUnited States
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
Kathryn GannUnited States
We had the tour of a lifetime with Gerard. He was waiting for us when we disembarked our cruise ship. His personal knowledge of the "Troubles" made it much more than just looking at murals. We heard, first hand, about life in Belfast, and about the Black Taxis. He brought history alive for us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful review. Gerard
Kevin K.BOULDER CITY, NV, United States
Wow -- what a great day. After arriving in Belfast via train Gerard was there to greet us in his fantastic London cab. So roomy and comfortable - the perfect way to travel around the North of Ireland. My husband and I were regaled with the wonderful stories and history of the North. Gerard is so much fun and we really enjoyed our day - wish I hadn't ended so soon. But maybe we will be back.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Absolutely delighted you loved my tour. I hope to see you’s again. Mr. Gerrard
John SpaffordUnited States
Gerard was unbelievably knowledgeable on his topic, so much so that there was no way he could get in all of the information he wanted to impart in the time allotted. I would suggest that Gerard either schedule a longer time for his tour or cut down on the amount of the information he shares, although that would be too bad. We would have liked to have seen more of Belfast since much of the "tour" was Gerard sitting in the backseat educating us and we would have liked to have been able to ask more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John Thank you for your brilliant 5 star review and yes l was thinking of offering a longer tour to accommodate people like yourself. Thanks Gerard
Scott McGilberryUnited States
Gerard was an excellent tour guide! He went to great effort to present the political and cultural environment from multiple perspectives. If you want to hear the truth about what life has been like during the conflict in Belfast, Gerard is your guide! He brought places to life and had pictures and video to provide historical context to things that have changed in recent decades. He arrived promptly to pick us up and dropped us at his favorite fish and chip shop when asked for a lunch recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Scott I love showing tourist our changing city

Awesome tour. If you don't use Gerard you will lose out
Bobbe CrapoUnited States
Gerard did a great job for us. We had planned a day-long tour of the Antrim Coast and ex-hurricane Ophelia threatened to cancel that. After discussing our options, we went on a (literally) whirlwind tour that included some Game of Thrones sites and the Giant's Causeway. We could not go to the hanging bridge, and we opted not to linger in Bushmills to tour the distillery, but it was not a lost day at all. Gerard especially went the extra mile to engage my son--not always an easy thing to do!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you great day
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you 5 stars delighted
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
Robert MaslinUnited States
Great tour by Gerard.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert great getting 5 stars
Patrick CahalanUnited States
Gerard did an outstanding job on our tour, not only tailoring it for us (photographers interested in the politics of NI), but also fleshing out a plethora of background and context that we had never been aware of. Well done, Gerard, and highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Patrick Thank you for your private message also and delighted you thought my tour was so good. Best regards Gerard
