Discover highlights of Northern Ireland and learn about its fascinating history with expert insight from former BBC correspondent Kate Adie

Tour Northern Ireland to discover the stories that have shaped this mesmerising land. Over six days, you'll be enchanted by Northern Ireland's diversity, from its cities and landmarks to its spectacular landscapes, including the unmissable Giant's Causeway and Hillsborough Castle and Gardens.

The trip begins in Belfast, visiting the acclaimed Titanic Belfast museum to see where this infamous ship was designed and built. Then you'll venture around the streets of Belfast on a guided tour like no other, visiting historic sites from the Troubles with a local who lived through the times. Back at the hotel and after a three-course meal, former BBC chief news correspondent Kate Adie will share her unique perspective on the events that unfolded during the Troubles.

Leaving Belfast behind, you'll take the beautiful coast road through the Glens of Antrim to Ballycastle. Here, a traditional whiskey tasting awaits at the renowned Old Bushmills Distillery before visiting the volcanic scenery of the Giant's Causeway - a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A deep dive into Derry follows. After a city tour, you'll hear stories of the Irish emigration to America at the Ulster American Folk Park, an open-air museum, then stay overnight in Enniskillen. Then it's onwards to Armagh, where you'll visit the Royal Family's official residence in Northern Island, Hillsborough Castle and Gardens. Historical moments of the peace process happened here, and you'll have the opportunity to see where the events took place.

Things wrap up with a farewell dinner at a local restaurant.
