Tour Code: 40837P1
Your tour guide is the 3rd generation of his family to guide on the iconic Giant's Causeway site with 125 years of family history to call upon to authenticate his stories. This 1-hour walking tour will breathe new life into a heritage lost and revive the history of a people long forgotten "the people of the shore". Your guide combines the attributes to offer a unique guided walking experience to his guests.
Your guide will meet you at the Giant's Causeway site and escort you on a walk that is just over a kilometre in length on properly constructed footpaths across an even surface or a slightly downward slope. The walk should take approximately one hour but time is not restricted; even if it takes longer your guide will not quibble!
The walk takes you through two bays or inlets, each with their own fantastic history. Your guide will bring this history alive for you by skillfully telling the stories only he knows, stories of his own family, stories of the other families of the area that are his neighbours and his friends. Stories that provide an unrivalled insight into the areas social, cultural and economic history. Stories that these people have entrusted the guide to tell.
His commentary reveals how the rock formations were actually formed and provide a scientific highlight for those interested in geology. Your guide can identify the flora and fauna and the wildlife, bird life and marine life visible in this area of outstanding natural beauty. A tour highlight is when you arrive safely to explore the three outcrops of basalt rock columns that are known throughout the world. See them from different angle, see the parts of the Causeway most visitors simply do not get to see, because they have not chosen to walk with the right guide.
To add a finale stand in awe and wonder at the power and majesty of the 3rd and final bay. The bay that the locals refer to as their home, then discover why. Add to this the explanation of the Celtic mythology, folklore and legends of this Causeway and you will have enjoyed it at its very best, a truly unique and unforgettable experience.
