How to Choose The Best Bus Tour Guide for a Trip to Giant’s Causeway

Northern Ireland’s only world heritage site, Giant’s Causeway is 60 million years old and is still preserved for tourists to visit. Legends say that the 40 thousand interlocking basalt columns are a work of a giant, Finn Mccool who paved a way to fight another Scottish giant.

 

However, expert geologists have labeled it a myth. According to them, these stepping stones and columns were formed due to a volcanic activity that caused cracks in the surface and gave it the shape that it has today.

 

The popularity of this site is off the charts and it is now the most visited site in the region, followed by the famous Titanic Belfast.

 

When it comes to traveling to Giant’s Causeway, there are many options available. While there’s no restriction to self-drive, still, it may cause problems and threaten your safety. Hence, booking a bus tour guide is your best option here.
