Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the City Sightseeing Dublin Hop-on Hop-off Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
As with Hop On Hop Off in every city, some tours are better than others. We purchased a 2-day pass and used it both days to get around the city. We had one driver/guide - Dermot - who was a fountain of Irish history knowledge not only pointing out things as he drove but explaining their place in history. Most other drivers just pointed out things. All in all, we think Hop On Hop Off is the best way to get an overview of a new city and Dublin was no exception.
Informative guides and plenty of buses to choose from. Did both routes, more enjoyable than having to walk around as you are able to pick and choose where to visit again, having seen it from the comfort of the bus.
This tour covers the highlights of Dublin. It's an excellent way to get around Dublin with the ability to get off and get back on.
Best way to get around Dublin. The running commentary made the time move quickly and we learned so much history. Well organized and very enjoyable.
Easiest way to get around a city you're not familiar with! You HAVE to do this in every city in Ireland it any other country that might offer it!
Like always Viator and Sightseeing tours always exceeds my expectations. Viator is a very easy and affordable way to book my activities during our trip. And Sightseeing Tours is an amazing way to see the city. It's convenient, affordable and the staff is always great and willing to help with an of our needs. I always use them for all my travels because I KNOW they always seem to impress me.
Highly recommended. Especially if Owen is your guide,Mr Dublin! What this guy doesn't know about this city isn't worth knowing.His commentary is really entertaining and funny.He will even treat you to a song or two and a tune on his whistle.The buses were clean and comfortable. If you want to see the whole of Dublin this is the way to to it.
Be sure to do both routes and try to catch buses that have live tour guides if possible since they provide more info and local color than the recorded tour messages. Great way to see the city.
Best overall way to learn about Dublin. Shore excursions are not better, just more expensive
I love these buses. I do one in every city I visit. It is an easy way to get a feel for the city. I loved seeing Dublin. I visited a few sites like Kiloman Gaol that I would have missed otherwise.
Hop on Hop Off is just the best way to see any city! Especially when you don't have much time - you want to see it all and then choose what to explore next.
This is a wonderful introduction to Dublin. I'd recommend going around the city at least once to determine where you might want to linger later. Very convenient, informative and well worth the money.
Our driver, Lisa, is an amazingly masterful driver. As she turned to go down alleys around particular sights, it was as if the bus were a small car. The tour was a good way to see the important sections of Dublin in a short time. The people at the office were very friendly and welcoming.
Great overview of the city. The live tour guide was excellent, better than the recorded version. The two days for one deal was a extra benefit. Anyone going to London for the first time should definitely use the Hop-on-hop-off service.
The live commentary and advice from the drivers was amazing, especially Dec's commentary and singing on the blue route.
Very good price very nice and friendly drivers, excellent for stopping at all attractions
We had the best time. We got on the bus pretty late so we didn't get off but rode the whole trip around once. Our bus driver was fantastic, not only did he give us interesting information about all the sights but he was cracking jokes and singing traditional Irish songs! The weather was perfect and we got a very thorough tour of the city. Would definitely recommend!
Learned a lot about the history of Dublin and being able to use the tickets for two days gave us a chance to get back to what we wanted to see.
A great way of seeing all the sights. Fantastic guides, full of funny stories and lots of facts. Kept us all hugely entertained and made us all feel very welcome. Brilliant, thank you!
The Dublin Hop-on Hop-off Tour was great--lots of good stops at just about anywhere visitors would want to see audio commentary was very informative and entertaining drivers were super kind and helpful!
