Amazing driver!
Kelly_C, Jan 2023
Brilliant tour, our driver was very informative, personable, friendly, confident and absolutely hilarious. He and the tour, were the highlight of our day trip to Dublin.
I really loved the tour!...
Eric_A, Jan 2023
I really loved the tour! It wasn't too short, it wasn't too long. The buses were pretty consistent and provided an overview of the entire city. Definitely consider this if you don't know what to do in Dublin because it shows you what you can do during your stay. Plus, the tour guides inform you about the sites you visit/pass by. Our tour guide, Martin, was excellent. He was very energetic, polite, and funny, you could tell he was passionate about his job and that makes the experience so much better. He even suggested places in the city that he thought was worth going to. Know if Martin is your guide, you will be in for a good time. I appreciate him and miss him already. Thank you for reading!
Enjoyable day trip!
L_A, Jan 2023
This green bus day tour in Dublin City was very enjoyable thanks to the driver Bill! He was very entertaining, funny and was lovely to listen to throughout the journey. I made sure to get back onto his bus each time I stopped along the route. On one of the stops that I didn’t want to disembark, Bill was also very kind to allow me to take pictures quickly and get back on the bus. He also made sure to slow down and asked us to take our pics quickly before driving off. These are nice personable touches that made you feel that it was your private tour. On the day of my tour it was cold, but listening to Bill throughout was entertaining and worth it. I highly recommend for a city tour in Dublin, including spending time at the National Gallery of Ireland. This was also one of the highlights of the day trip!
Oh the Places You Could Go
Latoya_D, Dec 2022
Knowledgeable tour guide. Numerous stops are available and the price is worth the trip. Highly recommend exploring during your stay in Dublin Ireland.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thanks for your lovely review. We agree with you that the price is worth the trip. Thanks for your recommendation.
Great way to see Dublin in limited time
Leiza_M, Dec 2022
What an easy, efficient and economical way to see Dublin. The info on the tour is great and the ability to get on and off as you please suited out family as we changed our minds about what we wanted to explore. Highly recommend this tour

The bus was one hour...
Gaby_C, Dec 2022
The bus was one hour late. We didn’t want to leave and waste my money. couldn’t see anything because it was too dark.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for our review. Can you please send us more details ( what date it was, what time it was and what stop you boarded at please) on this to info@dodublin.ie as this it not the norm and we would need to check this out. In the evenings we run a 30 minute service

Friendly
Nancy_J, Dec 2022
Friendly and fun drivers. Driver made sure passengers for the red bus weren't left waiting for their bus on a cold rainy dark night. Very caring.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
All the more reason to go "Green" in the first place! Thanks for your excellent review.
Drive and See The City
Maria_F, Nov 2022
This is a great chance to go all over the city and choose what you would like to see. Depending on how your driver is will make the difference. The first time we got on the bus, the driver was SO entertaining! He was funny and narrated while driving. We got off at Trinity College and when we got back on, the driver never said a word. He played the audio (which is still very informative but proper).
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for your review. We offer both live and audio tours and it is displayed at the front of the bus which one it is. We cater for all of our wonderful guests. As english speakers, we would recommend choosing a "Live" tour. Please come back again to experience more of them
Randomly selected! Great bus driver!
danamg01, Nov 2022
I don't know her name, but the bus driver that was randomly selected to ring the bell was amazing! She gave us such an overview of the city and mixed in lots of personal touches that made the experience amazing! She was the driver on an afternoon bus, November 24th. Thanks!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for your excellent review. We will find out who it is and pass this on.
Great Day
Patty_F, Nov 2022
Our guide was great. She was kind a super helpful. She was funny and a great singer. She was also very well educated regarding the landmarks.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank You for you review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your tour . We hope to see you on board again soon
Great Time!
Catherine_L, Nov 2022
We had a great time! We are never disappointed with Hop-on-hop-off bus tours. But this one especially because our driver was truly talented with his knowledge of Dublin and some entertaining good humor. I wish I had gotten his name! We took the first bus to leave on the morning on Nov. 22.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for your review, it looks like it was Greg, we will pass it on to him. Please come back to visit us soon!!
Just okay
Katharine_A, Nov 2022
Overall a good experience. We had one really good guide who narrated the tour himself, others were not as friendly and used the recording. Also, we were disappointed that hours were so limited as we thought we were purchasing a 24-hour tour so there would be more than 7-8 hours of bus times.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks for your review glad you enjoyed the live tour. We alternate between live and audio tours to cater for all of our guests. As with all tours all over the world the 24 hour ticket is valid for 24 hours from the time you first validate it.
I good trip
paul_g, Nov 2022
Great trip good commentary can see quite a lot of the city this way good price you can get of at any time to view the sights and get back on at any stop
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks for your excellent review. Please visit us again some time soon
Good tour!
Ana_G, Nov 2022
We had amazing tour in Dublin. The tickets for Guinnes Factory is not included. The staff is really helpful and we loved!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks for your great review. The Guinness factory is a totally separate entity to us. Their tickets are avaible online, glad you had a great experience with our staff and you loved our tour
where are the stops??
Anonymous, Nov 2022
It was nearly impossible to locate the stops as most, if not all, are not labeled. We wasted a ton of time just trying to figure out where we were supposed to be. I normally love using the hop on/off bus for a new location to scope things out on the first day but we only had about 2 hours left in the day to use it.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
We are sorry that you had this experience but we dont understand why there was an issue. Our stops are listed on our website, on our brochure and clearly throughout the city. There should not have been an issue with this.

Great first tour
JUDITH_W, Oct 2022
Get the bus with the live commentary instead of the recorded audio. It's hilarious and way more informative
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks for your review. We agree if you understand english that the live tour is the way to go.. Of course we cater for everyone with our audio tour in many languages. Glad you enjoyed it.
