This tour was absolutely amazing but the best part for me and my boyfriend was the view to the guinness lake in the Wicklow Mountains. The guide Trevor was really nice and funny. We loved Ireland and we hope to go back one day to visit more and more.

We had a great tour! Our tour guide Richie knew a lot about the places we went and added a good amount of humor. It was snowing very hard in the Wicklow Mountains, so we didn't saw a lot of the Guinness Lake. However, we went to the Powerscourt, a fantastic alternative.

Great way to escape the busy city life for some breathtaking scenery. Although it was heavily raining most of the tour, I still had a great time! Bus driver/tour guide was keeping us company and cracking a joke here and there and was really helpful throughout the journey.

The tour was awesome. Our guide was hilarious, telling stories the entire way. At each stop, he would explain some of the history or something cool that happened there. The day trip shows alot of the natural beauty in the countryside you are unable to find many places these days.
