Excellent tour, and great value for money.
I went to Belfast with my Mum to celebrate her 50th birthday and came across the Titanic Tours Belfast website before we set off. All was organised with such ease and payment wasn't taken from my card until we had been on the tour.
The tour is conducted by Susie Millar, the great-granddaughter of Thomas Millar, who worked in Harland & Wolff on the construction of Titanic & then sailed onboard her as an engineer on the fateful maiden voyage to New York in April 1912.
We were picked up outside our hotel in a Mercedes MPV and went to the home of Thomas Andrews who was the designer of the Titanic. We then headed off to where the Titanic was built and was shown the offices of Harland and Wolff where it was designed. We were then shown a DVD about the history of her great grandfather which was quite emotional. From there we got to go onboard the S.S Nomadic, the closest ship linked to the Titanic. The S.S Nomadic isn't open to the public, Susie has special rights because of her great grandfather, so you won't get to see this if you go with a different company.
We then went to see the dry dock which the Titanic was stored in before she set sail. After seeing that it was really put in perspective the size the ship actually was. We then went inside the pump rooms and watched a 10 minute DVD on how they were designed and how they worked.
The final stop was the memorial which was put up in Belfast for the people who lost their lives onboard the Titanic.
It was a very emotional, informative and interesting tour and would recommend Susie's Titanic Tours Belfast over any others.

This tour is not with the Black Taxi Cabs or the Lagan Boat Company. Susie Millar is the great grand daughter of Thomas Millar who helped build the Titanic and lost his life on it. Susie also is an accomplished journalist. I am a travel agent and I happened to find Susie on the internet. She gave us an incredible day in Belfast. Not only does she have access to Titanic's historical sites, but she also covered much of the unrest in Belfast for many years and can offer a unique perspective. Belfast is a beautiful city and so much more than what the media has shown us back here in the US. I would heartily recommend Susie Millar if you are going to be in Belfast. You can contact her via susie@titanictours-belfast.co.uk. I also have booked my clients with her and they all have come back very happy that they got to experience Belfast with this wonderful guide.

The tour that Susie offers of Titanic Belfast is by far the best on offer in the city. Unlike anyone else that is offering a Titanic themed tour, she has a personal connection to Titanic. She sets the scene & tells you the story of her great grandfather using a DVD in the car.

We were collected from our hotel, 8 miles outside Belfast for no extra cost.

The great thing about the tour is that you can go at whatever time suits you.

It's amazing to stand on the slipway where the Titanic was built almost 100 years ago. Susie's great grandfather worked on the construction of Titanic, as well as sailing on her as a crewmember.

The tour gives unique access to SS Nomadic, which is a MUST SEE! As we were shown on board this mini version of Titanic, the walking tour that also operates in Belfast ahd to stand outside, as they don't have access.

If you're a true Titanic fan like me, you will love the unique insight, courteous service, value for money and the opportunity to visit Titanic related sites in Belfast, like Thomas Andrews house that Susie Millar's tour provides.

It really is the case that this tour reaches parts that other can't!!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

PS - If you plan to book the tour, it's better to do so on a week day as that gets you access to the slipways and the H&W Drawing Offices.
