Great tour for everyone, particularly those fans of Bally K. Seeing Bally K and eating at Fitzgerald's was a definite highlight

A great way to see some of Ireland's mountains and small villages south of Dublin. Got to see the Wicklow Mountains and the natural beauty. As well as Glendalough area and lakes, St. Kevin's retreat remains; Also Avoca village and the weaver's mill, and the Glencree Center for Peace.

This was our first coach trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery and places of interest were great and our driver Rich was brilliant, very knowledgable and very witty.

What a great day out, and the scenery was beautiful, but what made the whole day special was our guide Richie. Congratulations on having such a well- informed, and really pleasant guy working for you, he looked after everyone in the group and we were over 30 pax, included people who were on their own, and just helped us all gel so that by the end of the day we were all friends. A great day for all age groups, my mum is 78 and she thouroughly enjoyed her day too. The food at the restaurant was also very tasty and good value. So glad we booked this trip.

This tour is geared towards hikers and fans of the movie "P.S. I Love You" [a bridge in the Wicklow Mountains] and the UK TV series "Ballykissangel" [the town of Avoca]. If you aren't familiar with either one, do your research in advance.

Aside from that, when you reach Glendalough, you have three choices during the 1 hour 45 minute stop: (1) Hike with the driver/guide to see a waterfall and the upper/lower lakes, (2) Walk around an old cemetery to take pictures of Celtic crosses and headstones bent across pathways due to age and weather, or (3) Sit on a bench and wait for the group to return to the tour bus. When you reach Avoca, you'll be herded into the pub for lunch [at your expense], and the bill will put a dent in your budget. Even fish and chips are expensive in that place.

Overall, the tour is wonderful, because the scenery is amazing.

The trip we took to Glendalough was excellent. We were a group of 18 and every one really enjoyed it very much. Our tour guide, Trevor was the best guide ever, he was funny and great at his job also very helpful to our group way beyond his remit.
The driver was equally good. We all felt we got very good value.
.

The value of the trip was great too and it all went to time - despite the freezing weather.
Thoroughly recommend it.
