Well, you really couldn’t get any more authentic if you tried and if you are a Game Of Thrones® fan then visit Northern Ireland and go on a specialist guided tour with our very own Hodor on Game of Thrones tours.
Giant Tours Ireland was set up by Flip Robinson to showcase to the rest of the world how beautiful our coastline is by going off the beaten track with tourists who were more keen to avoid the more crowded tourism hotspots.
But when Game of Thrones season 6 was coming up, Flip had the good fortune of being selected to be a stand in actor on Game of Thrones® for the major characters of Hodor and The Mountain. Visitors on his tours will hear the copious amounts of behind-the-scenes stories from Flip’s experience with the cast. Hodor was a much loved character and Flip was involved in the actual scenes that led to his tragic and extremely sad end.
As a huge fan of the HBO Hit Series, Flip then created his own Game of Thrones® Private Tours so he can bring fans to the actual locations and spots where the iconic cast and talented crew work to create the masterpiece which has enchanted people around the globe. This tour allows visitors to immerse themselves in the stunning places which have made Northern Ireland the ideal filming location.
During his tour our very own Hodor will tell some behind the scenes stories and anecdotes from the show and will bring you to places which can’t be reached on large coach tours. Ballycastle is at the heart of the many filming locations.
It’s his experience with the cast which gives Flip the valuable content for his tours which has seen his visitors rate Giant Tours Ireland so highly on TripAdvisor. All of the reviews of these tours are five star rated on TripAdvisor and this is something Flip is extremely proud of. It’s Flip’s authentic experiences which enables him to bring private small groups of dedicated Game of Thrones fans to see and stand on the exact locations which most visitors do not get to reach.
Flip takes many people on these tours as well as being the tour guide for Game of Thrones journalists, bloggers and film crews who visit Northern Ireland from around the world who travel to Northern Ireland specifically to immerse themselves in this captivating experience which they then share with their audiences globally.
Not only that but Flip also gets to meet incredible Game of Thrones professional fans where he shares stories and information but never spoilers!
This is a must for any Game of Thrones fans’ bucket list so make sure and tick it off.
But, not only can you hang out with Hodor, you will also have the chance to explore the North Coast of Northern Ireland by a man who is passionate about his place.
Flip Robinson also takes visitors on the Causeway Coast and Antrim Glens Tour where visitors can take in the breathtaking scenery at the world famous Giant’s Causeway and also experience the thrill of the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Visitors will also travel along the equally famous and dramatic Causeway Coastal Route which was recommended by Lonely Planet. You can view our impressive cliffs, long, sandy beaches, meet friendly locals along the route, experience the tranquility and charm of our off-the-beaten-track North Coast including our famous Glens of Antrim from which you can look across to the landscapes of our neighbours in Scotland on a clear day.
And of course if you are a tourist in Northern Ireland and want something specific, Flip can also take you on a bespoke tour so if you have something in mind simply contact Flip and he will work with visitors to ensure you leave Northern Ireland with a great story to share.
Flip previously worked as a ranger and a guide at the Giant’s Causeway and Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge. His background is in environmental science and he has years of experience volunteering with the RNLI and Coastguard rescue. He has a passion for the North Coast so he enrolled in a tour guiding course, bought a VW van, created a brand and has never looked back since.
One of the things which he loves is hearing the feedback from the people who book his tours. The feedback is fantastic and people love the authenticity of his tours.
