We're just back to Malta from Dublin and we are already missing it - especially the Wild Wicklow tour which was complemented by our excellent driver/tour leader John! He knows the ins and outs of Wicklow and also took us to a great restaurant and shopping centre. We would definitely recommend this tour .. but make sure to ask for John as your tour leader!!
First, I must say that our tour was made amazing because of our tour guide, John. He was an absolute delight and we are still talking about him almost 2 weeks later! We almost missed our bus because we were told to wait for the bus on the wrong side of the street, so when we saw the tour bus coming from the other side of the street, we had to dart through traffic flailing our arms at the driver John. John flailed his arms back at us, acknowledging that he saw us. I am so happy we did not miss this tour! While it was quite a rainy day, it was still one of my favourite and most memorable days. John was super accommodating and changed the tour around to suit the weather better. John was also the most interactive tour guide I have ever met. He not only was very knowledgable, but he was also very interested in getting to know the people on his tour. We had a lovely photo session with him at the end! While the Wicklow Mountains are beautiful and a must-see while in Ireland, John was certainly the star of the show! Give this guy a raise! John is clearly passionate about the Wicklow Mountains and is most definitely a people-person. This tour will be talked about for years, John being the main attraction!
Had a fantastic time on this tour! Niall was so knowledgeable, kind and funny. We saw some incredible sights and had an overall amazing day. A must-do!
Really great tour, the guide was amazingly fun and entertained us the whole trip. The Irish countryside was beautiful!
Our guide John was entertaining the entire time. The entire trip was great with lots of scenary and Irish history! Highly recommend.
Absolutely phenomenal tour! John was a phenomenal tour guide - very knowledgeable, very personable. As a "lone traveler", I felt very comfortable on the tour. Lots of photo opportunities, lots of stories, and lots of Irish music. I always felt safe and always felt cared for. At one point, I slipped and got a bunch of dirt on my jacket. John didn't want me to be cold so he offered me his very own jacket to use for the day! Seriously could not have asked for a better experience. I only spent 2 days in Dublin and dedicated 1 day to this tour - and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
Niall our driver/guide was a delight; he was courteous and funny, and had a real depth of knowledge of the history and geography of the area. On the day of the tour there had been snow and ice overnight, so it wasn't possible to go high into the Wicklow Mountains, but Niall took us to other places (safer!) and we didn't feel that we "missed out" on the places that we didn't get to see. I would strongly recommend this tour if you have time to put a day aside when staying in Dublin.
This was our first tour in Dublin and Viator made it wonderful.The Wild Wicklow Tours should be the best option for anyone who wants to take a nice breath at Wicklow mountains.The Guide John was so amazing and made the trip lively.I strongly recommend this.
The driver and the guide was the same person, a bit surprising me, but he is good, professional, funny and kind. Great experience.
John. our tour guide was a wealth of local information. very helpful personable. the tour was excellent.
John, our tourguide and busdriver, made this trip very pleasant. He is such a nice person and made us feel very comfortable. The tour itself was breathtaking - I really didn´t know that there are so many beautiful landscapes in Europe still to discover. I thought I was on another planet...Keep on like this, John!
The guide, Niall, was fantastic. He really made it such a great day for everyone. He was funny, knowledgeable, and great at answering questions and accomodating everyone during our day trip. The sights were beautiful and the lunch stop was great too!
