What is Tele Recommends?

Asked to name Northern Ireland's five best tours, he recommends...

Belfast City Sightseeing tour

Hop on one of the regular bus tours of the city and see many of the best Belfast sights. This great tour is perfect for tourists and locals, and you can hop on or off at the 20 stops and explore each area knowing there's another bus in about 30 minutes.

Game of Thrones has brought the beautiful scenery of Northern Ireland to a worldwide audience and this tour will take you on a journey through what the world knows as Westeros. You will stop at the stunning Dark Hedges, the beautiful Ballintoy Harbour and enjoy one of the world's best coastlines, with the added bonus of a stop at the world heritage site, Giant's Causeway.

Martin McCrossan City tour, Derry/Londonderry

Walk the Walls and find out the fascinating history of the city from what is surely the best value tour in the country at only £4. Martin’s enthusiasm and passion for his city is completely inspiring and an absolute pleasure.

Belfast City Bike tours

This award-winning tour takes you to parts of Belfast you just won't see on any other tour. You'll head off the normal tourist trail but also enjoy passing the key must-see sights. The California Cruiser bikes are extra comfy and using a lot of cycle lanes and parks make for a fun and different way to see Belfast.

Marble Arch Caves tour

Northern Ireland really does have some amazing world class scenery and I couldn't leave out the Marble Arch Caves. On the tour you will experience a short boat ride, the amazing Porridge Pot, the Moses Walk and the Guardian Angel and see millions of years of geology in the making. Stunning!
