Tour was awesome! Our guide John was outstanding! He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was well cared for. Very interesting and entertaining.
We booked the wrong day, but the staff was really helpful and ensured we got on a bus the day we had planned for, guiding us through the city in the morning on phone to another bus which had available seats. The tour itself was excellent where we got to see a variety of things with an enthusiastic and well informed guide. They really went the extra mile for good customer service.
Excellent tour along with exceptional guide. Definitely worth taking this tour. Highly advised.
Nials is a fantastic tourguide. We had an amazing day.
we had a fantastic day out and Nial our driver was brill very informative and funny too .
Our tour guide was delightful, knowledgeable, and considerate. Will definitely tour with theis company again.
This was a great tour. Beautiful scenery with a knowledgable and fun driver, Joe, who made the experience all the better. I highly recommend the tour.
Excellent trip, the countryside is beautiful and makes you want to see more. Our tour guide/bus driver, Dave, was extremely entertaining and also very knowledgeable. The exam at the end of the tour was really fun, or as Dave would say deadly :- Had a wonderful time!
Took my 80 year old Mum with me and we both had the most fantastic day - John our driver was amazing, he was full of knowledge and made the day great fun for everyone. We would recommend this trip to anyone, we saw beautiful countryside, lakes, wildlife, monasteries, villages and got a real flavour of the area. I'm sure all the drivers are good but if you get John you are in for a fabulous day!
From Istanbul to Cornwall, and Alaska to Quebec, over the years we have avoided group bus tours: they feel like traps, and are often a waste of time with little to teach, and too much fluff. So we signed on to the Wild Wicklow Bus Tour in Dublin with low expectations, figuring the reasonable price was worth the risk. And at first, we thought we'd jump the bus, for the start was slow, with pick-ups at hotels. BUT WERE WE GLAD WE STAYED! It was the tour of a lifetime.
We did not know our driver/guide, Niall, is a STAR in his field, but soon enough realized he was special. Niall welcomed us aboard with a genuine friendliness that I was too skeptical to appreciate at first. But as the morning wore on, and he continued to be good natured, funny and informative, we began to be amazed at our good luck.
Niall was respectful: he honored the small Muslim family aboard by allowing them to leave while he gave his whiskey speech along with tiny samples he played with the one child on board, teasing and including her allowed for older slower folks to go at their own pace and in general made the mixed nationalities on board feel welcome.
And Nial knows his stuff: after awhile, I suspected he was well-educated and, and sure enough, he is a retired history and English teacher/professor. How did we know? He delved into the history of the Vikings in the most entertaining way explained the evolution of Irish and Scottish gaelic in story form, led us through ruins in Glendalough and lit a fire in us to learn more. He has the gift of making history alive and fascinating.
And he could do impersonations: Bill Clinton, Queen Elizabeth, Jimmy Stewart and more.
And he gave us all this, often while negotiating difficult turns and traffic situation. I am often a bit nervous with someone else at the wheel, especially in mountains, but Niall negotiated the roads with ease. What a gift this man has.
I have run out of room here - have more to say but find out for yourself - you won't regret it
The scenery was stunning. Our tour guide, Niall, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and would definitely recommend this tour.
Loved loved loved this tour! Our guide was awesome and had so many great stories to tell! Very entertaining! Make sure to get the Guinness stew at the restaurant!
Great countryside with an entertaining guide/driver. Drove to places we did not expect to see on another tour. Wonderful stops. Even met Bono!
Fabulous trip! John was a great driver and very infomative about our surroundings! He was light hearted
and very cheerful! He wanted us all to have fun! We had the opportunity to bump into Bono! But unfortunately he was an impersonator look alike! Fun anyway! Jameson was a nice treat for a warm up after walking. It was a beautiful sunny day and felt magical!
Amazing time... a view of Ireland you'll never forget.
Our guide Niles and bus were both first class.
John was the best tour guide we could've asked for! He was informative, funny, and always willing to take pictures for us. He definitely set the bar pretty high for every other tour I go on in the future :
My wife and I have had tours all over the world but this is probably the best tour we have experienced. Our driver and guide John was extremely knowledgeable and was an excellent professional driver that kept to his tour plan but never rushed us.
very good tour!
It was raining the whole day but our tourguide was making the best out of it!!
This tour is highly recommendable: well planned in terms of distances and rests. The visited sites are very interesting. The most amazing part however was the driver/guide (I can't remember his name): very well documented, enthusiastic and funny. He spoke fluently about history, culture, geography.
