The gledalough bit was interesting and the views from the Wicklow Hills were stunning. The Avoca bit ,which is why we went, was disappointing. We had a rushed lunch in Fitzgeralds so we could see the oldest mill in Ireland. The whole day was made better by the driver who was very knowledgable about all of the places we visited and he was also very funny., his name is Joe and he was very good value!!
The trip was great and our guide was especially good but the reservation through Viator created problems for us since it required a paper ticket and we were traveling. We had to go to a pay internet cafe to get it printed. I would not make this sort of reservation again.
Avoca was lovely and the tour guide was very informative. Unfortunately we couldn't get to Glendalough due to snow, but the tour guide compensated with a trip to the Meeeting of Two Rivers.
Glendalough segment was very entertaining, needed more time at the Abbey. Time at Avoca could have been better spent visiting the village rather than the weaving.
Beautiful views but Lunch break was not scheduled till almost 4pm after a 9am start.

I wouldn't actually recommend this - there wasn't anything wrong with it, it's just that there are so many amazing things to see and do in Ireland that this tour felt kind of average. Glendalough was pretty, but that's it. And Avoca was a complete tourist trap.
