Both me and my mum had the most fantastic day on our Wild Wicklow tour. It was more than we could ever have imagined. We didnt expect half of what we got on the trip from our tour guide and driver Niall. He was a superb driver, weaving in and out the narrow streets, and so informative as soon as we stepped on in Dublin city, telling us all the history we could imagine. We hadnt expected that, so it was a very nice surprise. We were very blessed with the weather too, even the locals were surprised, which just added to the day. The only thing i will say, which could have made it better, both me and my mum were taken aback by the breath taking views at the Upper Lake at Glendalough. sadly we were only given 10mins there. This was no where near long enough. I appreciate that there was an itineray to stick to, but from what i could gather from alot of the other visitors on the coach, they too, would have preferred a longer stay there. Preferrable, maybe to a longer stay at the monastic ruins. I appreciate everyones taste is different. But it was still the best day of our holiday, and i would most definately do it again and recommend it to everyone. We have the best photos to last forever. Thankyou.
A memorable trip into the beautiful countryside. It's well worth the day trip!
Really interesting stories from a cheery bus driver, all the way from the city centre to the beautiful Wicklows. Gorgeous, varied scenery with stops at good intervals. With regard to time, it was long enough to enjoy everything properly and yet not long enough to feel drawn out. Would happily go once again!
Great day getting out of Dublin and seeing the beauty of Ireland. The weather was rainy all day, but we enjoyed it nonetheless. Would highly recommend this tour.
The best thing we did while in Dublin. Our driver, Niall, was also our tour guide and he was fantastic. Lot's of great sites and he was entertaining the whole time. Even better, they were able to pick us up because we were "those people" who arrived late and missed the bus. We were able to get picked up at a nearby stop, but word to the wise - get there early! The only downside (and it was hard to find one) was the lunch stop. It was purely the place we ate at and nothing to do with Wild Wicklow tours, but the food was pretty meager for the price (literally one slice of turkey on our sandwich.) Choose your food carefully or, if you can, bring your own. Otherwise, my wife and I agreed we would do this tour again in a heartbeat.
A full bus. The driver made it all the more interesting by cracking jokes and was quite knowledgeable with the historical events, etc. A must see!
Wonderful. Even tough the weather was awful ("When you don't see the Wicklow mountains, it's raining and if you do see them, it is going to rain."), our amazing guide found his beautiful way out by telling us great stories and showing us infinite landscapes. I've been doing another tour in Wicklow before, and it was nothing compared to that "wild" one. Thank you for showing us this great unknown part of the country.
By far the best tour I have been on. The tour guide was informative, funny, and engaging. It was honestly the only tour I listen to all the way. I would very highly recommend this tour. It is so beautiful. And you get Jameson!
We had this really funny great tourdriver/guide! Explained us the Irish history in a nutshell, in between his stories he sung irish and international songs. We visited beautiful places, and had a fantastic day!
Neil was an awesome tour guide!! Fantastic views of the countryside and beautiful lakes. Definitely worth the time and money!
This is the second time I have gone on this tour with different family members. And I have loved the tour both times. However, the tour guide Denis made the tour even better. He was the best tour guide I have ever had. This trip is beautiful and I recommend it to everyone!!
Excellent tour and skilled guide. The only disappointment was that the senior rate apparently was available in person only - not online.
A thoroughly enjoyable day. Weather was beautiful and some of the scenery stunning but what really made the experience so memorable was our driver/guide /entertainer Denis who kept us laughing the whole day with his humorous banter.
GREAT TOUR!!! Denis, the tour guide/driver, was fantastic :) We had a lot of fun and we saw some amazing sites! Highly recommended
We had such a great day on our tour with Niall. He was such a wealth of information and narrated all through our tour through Glendalough and into the Wicklow Mountains. We all felt like we had thousands of years of Irish history wrapped into a six hour tour! He even added a few extra sights to see such as Bono, Enya, and Van Morrison's houses. The mountains were simply breathtaking. The price for everything that we got (bus tour, Jameson tasting, history lessons, etc.) was such a great deal.
The bus driver who is also the tour guide deserves a raise. He made our trip enjoyable and pleaant as well as informative. We had a good time viewing the scenary.
I would definitlly recommend the tour
A really funny and exciting tour! The bus driver was hilarious: singing and entertaining all the time.
We really liked our guide, Niall. He was energetic, animated, funny, personable and knowledgeable. During the duration of the tour of about 9 hours, there were only about 20 minutes he was silent - he kept talking for the rest of the time and he didn't even look tired at the end of the day.
He seemed very attentive to our group's particular needs and interests and because our group had quite a few women who were interested in celebrity stuff, he made sure to point out all of the places that had anything to do with celebrity, e.g., celebrity's houses, scenes from movies, etc. Though we did not share the same level of interest as those who took pictures of every celebrity-related spot, we did find the stories Niall shared with us interesting.
It was a good mixture of a nice shopping spot, great natural sceneries and history spots and Niall kept us entertained the whole day. We took a total of four tours while we were there and we are glad we picked this one.
The trip to Wild Wicklow was great , the country was beatiuful and the Driver (Joe ) was great with his stories and his singing and don't forget the dram of Whisky ! It was a great day out !! The company was very helpful to us , because of a trip delay and us getting to Dublin late, they moved our trip to Wild Wicklow to the next day , which was very helpful to us for we could enjoy a great day out .
This is another must to do in Ireland, the views and history are wonderful.
Beautiful views in the rainy ánd sunny Wicklow Mountains. A very nice day due to our most enthusiastic, great story-telling guide.
The views on this tour were incredible. Nile was fantastic. It is hard to believe that places like this don't have people clamoring to visit every day. We even lucked out by watching the shooting of Vikings Season 3.
This was a terrific day tour that my husband and I both enjoyed immensely. The itinerary was a good one and really gave us a great sense of this region and access to some memorable areas. Our bus driver/tour guide Nial was fantastic. He had a very hospitable and competent way about him that influenced the whole trip and everyone's moods in a positive way. He was very knowledgeable and explained some of the complicated Irish history in such a clear manner that we all understood what could have been an overwhelming set of information. It was a well designed trip - and most importantly, very well executed by our "host" and "teacher" Nial. I would strongly recommend this to anyone.
This tour was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide was the sweetest man and we had the most lovely day. Couldn't of found a better your of Ireland!
