We would highly recommend Michael for this tour. There were 7 of us and everyone said that it was the best tour they had been on. We saw lots and Michael is very knowledgeable and highly entertaining. Plenty of stops for pictures and Michael never rushed us. He even found us a memorable pub for a great lunch.

Michael was the perfect guide for our visit in Belfast. We followed the suggested itinerary but Michael also showed us the many murals in the city and briefed us on the history of "the troubles". He was very knowledgeable about the area and all the sights. His vehicle was comfortable and spotless. It was a pleasure to spend the day with a true professional with a great personality. He made a special stop for us at Royal Portrush so my golfer husband could see the course and purchase golf shirts!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Christie Thanks for the lovely word hope you got home all safe and sound all the best Thanks Michael
Janet HammerUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Janet Thanks for the kind words ,as for the weather that day you just have to keep going,all the best Thanks again Michael
Lillian DysonUnited States
The tour of the northern Irish coast with Michael was the highlight of our vacation in Ireland. He was a fantastic guide, and took extra time (and was very patient) to show us stunning views of the coast. My family and I were very pleased with the experience and would highly recommend the tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lilian Thanks for the kind words I had a great day with you guys all the best Thanks Micheal

Leslea CaswellUnited States
Michael was an amazing guide!!! We were shown so many beautiful things in Ireland and learned so much from him. It was such a wonderful day and we had so much fun. Great driver on those narrow little roads Michael! Be sure to book with him when you go to Ireland. Our only regret is that we didn't get a picture with him! :(
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi leslea Thank for the kind words it was a really nice time with you guys All the best Michael
Linda HoustonUnited States
My husband and I did a tour of Armagh and Antrim Counties with Michael Lyons. I wanted to see the counties my family came from and Michael did a wonderful job of showing us what I came to Ireland to see. Michael was very accommodating to our changing interests and a delight to spend the day with. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone who wants a wonderful tour in Northern Ireland. He helped make my day very special.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda Thanks for the kind words and it was a pleasure to spend the day with you and Walker Thanks Michael
Barry BeckerUnited States
Tour was excellent. Michael was able and willing to adjust to our specific requests and his wonderful commentary greatly added to the quality of the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Barry Hope you guys got back home safe and sound thanks for a great day Thanks Michael
Ronald NissenUnited States
Michael was so personable and fun. He took us through the city of Belfast to several historic sights centered around the strife between the factions that still continue today. His commentary was wonderful. We then ventured out into the beautiful countryside. To no fault of Michael's, the Giants Causway was interesting but underwhelming.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ronald Thanks for the kind words I had a great day with you guys ,all the best Thanks Michael
Michael is very punctual, kind and patient. He adjusted to our needs and tried to please us in everything. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We would definitely recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lorena I had a great day. With you and Jose,thanks for the kind words Michael
Brandi GarnerUnited States
LOVE LOVE LOVED getting to spend the day with Michael. He was knowledgeable, funny, kind, and incredibly accommodating. I felt like I got to see a part of Northern Ireland that not everyone gets to see - especially the beautiful "roller coaster" drive. I felt connected to the place and it's people because of traveling for the day with someone like Michael. I can't recommend hiring him highly enough. His car is very comfortable as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Brandi I am still trying to post you some of the photos from that day ,I tried to email,them Thanks Michael
Robert StevensonUnited States
Michael did a fine job of showing my wife and me the sites. He was friendly, knowledgable and always anticipated the best routes to avoid traffic back ups or delays. We were on the 7.5 hour tour with Michael. He is a life-long Belfast/Northern Ireland man and we recommend him very highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rob Thanks for the review,I had a great day with you and Heidi it was a pleasure Thanks Michael
Stephen MerrittUnited States
Michael is a great tour guide. We saw many wonderful, interesting, and beautiful things on our all day tour. We covered from Belfast to the Giant's Causeway and just about everything in between. Michael's commentary is scholarly and illuminating. He shared his vast knowledge of the history of Ireland with us. He is an excellent, gracious, and accommodating host. THE BEST!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steve I had a great day with you and Kathryn all the best , Thanks Michael
Lora FiesUnited States
We had an excellent full day tour that included unexpected extras. We enjoyed the Torr Road and its awesome views. The restaurant Michael recommended was perfect for lunch. He was friendly and patient, especially when we went past our allotted tour time. He made our tour of Belfast and the Giant's Causeway our most memorable one. We were able to find him quickly when we disembarked our cruise ship in the morning and he dropped us off right by the ship after. Couldn't have been easier. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lora Thanks for those kind words I had a lovely day with you guys and the weather was beautiful and for Mary to see where her grandparents came from Co Donegal at the view from dunluce castle Great day Thanks Michael
Arlene K.United States
Michael was FANTASTIC! He had a full itinerary planned for us on the Giants Causeway tour. He knows the area, the history, and the politics. He was interested in our comfort and in seeing that we got the absolute most out of the day. He took us to great spots for photo ops, and did an outstanding job of avoiding the tour coaches. In addition, he took us on magnificent scenic roads that no tour bus could possibly use. He was very accommodating, and we highly recommend his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Arlene An excellent review and I'm so happy you enjoyed your day Michael
