Our day with Pat was terrific! We started in Belfast learning about the city and seeing some of the notable sites. Pat then took us to the murals and explained the Troubles and gave a balanced presentation about it, answered our questions and discussed what it means now for living in Belfast. We then continued our adventure in the rain to the Causeway, Bushmills and a great place for lunch. Pat took great care in meeting our expectations and did a great job! Thank you Pat!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Laurie,thankyou for your lovely comments and for taking the time to leave them I'm really happy you enjoyed your day out, the weather wasn't great but you all just got on with it and even had a good laugh when the boys got caught out,great attitude, come back soon �� Pat.

Pat picked us up right at the cruise terminal and we were away within minutes of meeting. A quick drive through Belfast with some history and then onto the countryside. First stop Carrack rope bridge. (Super cool) definitely a must. Then to Giants Causeway (extremely overrated) unless you are a geologist or someone who is really into rocks. By far the highlight Dunluce Castle was beyond expectations, very interesting and cool as heck to walk through a midevil castle. Return to ship on time.

Pat found us at the airport and we went immediately into the tour. He had so much information to share and could answer all our questions. He keyed into our interests and made some adjustments so we could see extra murals. Pat communicated well both on-line and in person and followed through on what he promised. He is an excellent tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ruthie ,thankyou so much for your lovely comments and for taking the time to leave them, it was lovely to meet you both thanks again.

Pat was wonderful. Very nice and personable and his vehicle was super comfortable. He was able to tell us all of the history of the area. He took us to beautiful locations and he is very up to date on his Game of Thrones. Those film locations were very cool! We highly recommend Pat. You'll have a wonderful time.

Pat is a very knowledgeable person. His transport is exceptional. So spacious and comfortable. We took a tour of Belfast first. Then the North Antrim Coast followed by the Giants Causeway. A few other sites were thrown in as well. We stopped for lunch in a marvellous cafe. The food was so scrumptious. Far better than the rubbish on our cruise ship. He picked us up before our scheduled time and dropped us off with time to spare. We would use Pat again without hesitation. All in all a wonderful tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dennis thankyou so much for your lovely comments and for taking the time to leave them. I really enjoyed the day out with yourselves. Great people thanks again Pat.

Pat is a terrific guide! My husband and two teenage boys spent the day with him. He picked us up at the cruise terminal promptly and we toured Belfast and had a quick lesson in politics of the city. We then went to the Dark Hedges, rope walk and onto Giants Causeway. It is amazing and should not be missed! The driving is treacherous but Pat handled it easily. We then went to lunch at The Old Bushmills Inn and to distillery for souvenirs. We had a great day and made a new friend! Highly Recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Naomi. you guys were great to be with I enjoyed the day as well. you we're all great company so easy to get along with. so thanks a million for everything Good luck Pat.

Top-notch tour w/an outstanding guide Pat was friendly, very knowledgeable & gave meaningful insight w/Belfast Murals. Dark Hedges unbelievable photos The drive along the Antrim coast was stunning Giant Causeway-breathtaking GOT fan-Pat can talk the talk he can even point out a door made from the Dark Hedges beech trees & Balintoy Harbour Stop at the Bushmill's distillery for some goods & maybe some liquid courage to conquer the Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge. Well worth the money spent, I highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Joanne what can I say. Thankyou so much for your lovely comments thanks

Date: May 28/18

This tour was a one of the highlights on our trip to Northern Ireland. If you want to see the Marble Arch Caves and do a black cab tour in one day, you should choose Pat as your guide. Pat was a wonderful guide who picked us up in Belfast and took us to several mural, the peace wall and to the gates that get locked at night. The Marble Arch Caves is quite a bit a way from Belfast, but it is a site that should not be missed. Pat also took us to a Game of Thrones Door that was near by at our request.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Charlotte. thankyou so much for your lovely comments and for taking the time to leave them I'm really happy you and your mum enjoyed the day out. I enjoyed my time you also Good luck Pat.

This was one of our favorite tours. Pat went the extra mile- as tour guide/ historian. His unique understanding of Belfast made its history come alive for us. We started within the city with an in depth discussion of its history. We traveled the gorgeous countryside along the North Chanel marveling at its exceptional and wild beauty, stopping along the road to visit historical castles, glorious little inlets and the Giants Causeway. We easily saw why it's called the Emerald Isle. An A+ tour/ guide

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Linda, much appreciated lovely people thankyou so much Pat.

Pat is a lovely gentleman who shared his knowledge about northern Ireland and life experiences in Belfast. We were running short on time heading back to Belfast, so he extended our tour by a bit to show us the murals and peace wall in Belfast, for which we were very grateful. His black taxi was comfortable and popular with other tourists. We enjoyed every minute!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Leslie, thank you very much you were both great company and I really enjoyed my time with you Pat.
