Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Wicklow Mountains, Avoca and Glendalough Rail Tour from Dublin. 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.
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!
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.
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.
I give this one star just because of the scenery. Glendalough was beautiful - our guide gave confusing directions so we saw stuff other tourists don't usually see. Got the feeling this tour could really be something if only the guide was better.
Not enough time in Avoca and too much time at the river.
It was a fantastic holiday and the tours were the icing on the cake. I would say more time is needed to have a meal in Ballykissangel pub. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
