Loved this tour! We had the best tour guide ever - Eoin. Funny, informative, gift of the Irish gab and sense of humour. He even sings! : We were so lucky to have a beautiful sunny perfect day to make this tour, but honestly the scenery is so stunning I bet it looks good in all kinds of weather. The amount of stops and time spent at each one was perfect. Our bus load even had a couple get engaged at the PS I Love You bridge!!! And another couple celebrating their 30th anniversary! We all cheered and Eoin kept the mood festive the whole day. Great excursion out of the city to relax and drink in the Irish countryside. Highly recommend.
Our bus driver/tour guide was delightful. Thank you. Love every moment.
Richie was a great tour guide. He has a voice made for narration and a clear passion for Irish history and the countryside. The trip was beautiful. It was early June and the weather was lovely. A wonderful day in Ireland!-Jackie Orlando, Fl
This tour was absolutely amazing but the best part for me and my boyfriend was the view to the guinness lake in the Wicklow Mountains. The guide Trevor was really nice and funny. We loved Ireland and we hope to go back one day to visit more and more.
a fantastic gem off a trip fun informative are tour guide richie was great and knew an amazing amount about the area well worth the money and the early moring rise
We had a great tour! Our tour guide Richie knew a lot about the places we went and added a good amount of humor. It was snowing very hard in the Wicklow Mountains, so we didn't saw a lot of the Guinness Lake. However, we went to the Powerscourt, a fantastic alternative.
Great way to escape the busy city life for some breathtaking scenery. Although it was heavily raining most of the tour, I still had a great time! Bus driver/tour guide was keeping us company and cracking a joke here and there and was really helpful throughout the journey.
Beautiful views of the mountains and the local country. Joe was a wonderful guide who knew everything about the area. I highly recommend him.
What can I say but thank you to jeff our guide for sharing his love and passion for this amazing country. You were wonderful. I absolutely loved the whole experience. And I loved your jokes and stories.
Excellent tour, guide and driver! Awesome scenery and the walk to the upperlake was amazing. Great guide Jeff and driver John who made my son of 4 yrs feel at ease too. Highly recommend. Well done
Harry was a very entertaining and knowledgeable tour director.
The tour was awesome. Our guide was hilarious, telling stories the entire way. At each stop, he would explain some of the history or something cool that happened there. The day trip shows alot of the natural beauty in the countryside you are unable to find many places these days.
I originally booked this tour specifically to go to Avoca as I had booked to go to Wicklow mountains on a different day , however I was advised of the change and these things unfortunately happen, having said that , the tour was fantastic the guide was friendly and brilliant I really advise anyone to take the tour.
What an amazing part of the world. It was cold and raining but the walk was exhilarating and the views unforgettable. The guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a great driver.
Joe, was our guide and despite the cold weather he kept the moods up and gave us a great experience. It was better than expected.
Great tour for everyone, particularly those fans of Bally K. Seeing Bally K and eating at Fitzgerald's was a definite highlight
A great way to see some of Ireland's mountains and small villages south of Dublin. Got to see the Wicklow Mountains and the natural beauty. As well as Glendalough area and lakes, St. Kevin's retreat remains; Also Avoca village and the weaver's mill, and the Glencree Center for Peace.
This was our first coach trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery and places of interest were great and our driver Rich was brilliant, very knowledgable and very witty.
The trip was excellent! We saw the mountains (really are hills) the lakes and Avoca. Had a great time!
What a great day out, and the scenery was beautiful, but what made the whole day special was our guide Richie. Congratulations on having such a well- informed, and really pleasant guy working for you, he looked after everyone in the group and we were over 30 pax, included people who were on their own, and just helped us all gel so that by the end of the day we were all friends. A great day for all age groups, my mum is 78 and she thouroughly enjoyed her day too. The food at the restaurant was also very tasty and good value. So glad we booked this trip.
This tour is geared towards hikers and fans of the movie "P.S. I Love You" [a bridge in the Wicklow Mountains] and the UK TV series "Ballykissangel" [the town of Avoca]. If you aren't familiar with either one, do your research in advance.
Aside from that, when you reach Glendalough, you have three choices during the 1 hour 45 minute stop: (1) Hike with the driver/guide to see a waterfall and the upper/lower lakes, (2) Walk around an old cemetery to take pictures of Celtic crosses and headstones bent across pathways due to age and weather, or (3) Sit on a bench and wait for the group to return to the tour bus. When you reach Avoca, you'll be herded into the pub for lunch [at your expense], and the bill will put a dent in your budget. Even fish and chips are expensive in that place.
Overall, the tour is wonderful, because the scenery is amazing.
Excellent tour guide ! Joe knew the area and could explain any question asked. He kept the group up beat and excited about the trip!
The trip we took to Glendalough was excellent. We were a group of 18 and every one really enjoyed it very much. Our tour guide, Trevor was the best guide ever, he was funny and great at his job also very helpful to our group way beyond his remit.
The driver was equally good. We all felt we got very good value.
The value of the trip was great too and it all went to time - despite the freezing weather.
Thoroughly recommend it.
