Very full itinery with many areas of interest. We wouldn't have seen most of this if we had gone it alone. Loved the train journey. The tour guide Liam was very knowledgable and kept us up to date with lots of information about all the places we visited. Well worth a visit.

Liam and Patrick were wonderful. Liam was full of fun facts and went at a great pace for the group. We got to see so much and it was so pretty. Thanks again! Very easy too.

This tour was really excellent. It was well timed and the places we saw were what I came to Ireland to see. The train ride was pleasant and the coach ride was too. Edmund, our guide, was just wonderful and Tony, our driver, was a terribly decent fellow. I will definitely recommend this to everyone!

The programme was great, the places were fascinating and the guide was well-qualified and he told us a lot of stories about the area and the sights. We enjoyed the whole trip. Everything was well organized and went smoothly.

Our recent trip to Ireland was made even more amazing by our day trip to Wicklow, Avoca and Glendalough. Edmond, our guide, was fun, knowledgeable and helpful. Breaking the trip up by traveling by rail and coach was terrific. Can't wait to return!

Beautiful area. I would have liked some photo stops while on the bus. I greatly enjoyed the nature walk in Glendalough. Our guide was wonderful, friendly, very informative, and helpful.

A lovely trip, well organised and run. To change between train and coach broke the day up nicely. The scenery was stunning, the weather could have been kinder but we won't hold you responsible for that! We would definitely use your services again. Thank you.

This was a very well organised trip - no waiting around for connections etc. Some of the stops might have had a little more time than was necessary but generally very well planned, well structured and worth every penny.

The only thing which was a bit naff was having to manually phone to confirm my place. That should be done automatically as part of the booking - you shouldn't have to incur an international phone call. That's the whole point of online reservations.

Note from Viator: Thanks Leo, and we appreciate your feedback. We ask our clients to call upon arrival in Dublin to confirm the trip details and departure points. Occasionally, circumstances occur beyond the operator's control and they may need to alter the trip details at the last minute. A call when you arrive into Dublin offers you and the operator an opportunity to communicate any changes. It's possible that you changed your hotel and forgot to tell us for example. It's also a great time to ask any question before the tour starts. No need to call from your home and incur international call costs. The purpose is to speak to the operator once you arrive into Dublin to confirm that you're set to go!

It was a good day. Very tiring though with all the traveling to each place. Could be better by having slightly more time in each stop maybe. Was worth going though, especially seeing the weavers in Ballyk and the tour guide was hilarious. Very entertaining day!

3 star rating: Worth doing

The guide was excellent, but the vehicle provided was extremely too small and made the trip uncomfortable. Also if there are less then 5 people tours should be cancelled.

Not enough time in Avoca and too much time at the river.
