Grab your camera and set out to explore the ‘Garden of Ireland’ on this half-day tour of Wicklow from Dublin. Admire the lakes, mountains and forests of the Wicklow Mountains; visit the monastic ruins of ancient Glendalough and spot filming locations from movies like ‘Braveheart’ and ‘PS I Love You’. Along the way, stop to see the Guinness-shaped lake of the Guinness estate and marvel at the views from Sally Gap.
Excellent half day trip from dublin. Easy to find location to meet tour.
very nice trip our guide was very good
It was terrific
Loved seeing Wicklow. Such amazing scenery, wish I had a picnic and more time. We barely got 20 minutes to be there.. it was take pictures and get back on the bus. Glendalough history is interesting and I enjoyed wandering, but would have traded time there for more at Wicklow.
The tour guide was so so, wish he would have given us more info. Nice scenic tour of Wicklow and glendalogh. Overall good experience.
Phoned to confirm as instructed on email, first they couldn't find my booking then they did. Sounded like a person who had very little understanding of the English language, I asked for the best pick up point from the cruise terminal, and was told Paddys Palace. We went to Paddys Palace only to be told a different company was organising the tour, Paddywagon tours arrived and picked us up only to find the coach was nearly full of fellow travelers from the cruise ship we had been on! We need not of rushed to Paddys Palace having seen the coach at the dock, had we known they were our company we could have asked if they were the same tour.
Driver was brilliant, until we returned to Dublin, then he decided to do an extended tour, people were wanting to get off, he then decided to give people 30 minutes in Dublin before taking us back to the ship. This turned into 45 minutes, and because some got taxis and others that had joined us in Dublin not from the cruise got off he didn't know how many he should have on the coach! Instead of having a half day tour he seemed to think we should be having a whole day, we should have finished nearer 5.30 instead he dropped us at the ship after 8 pm. I have never used Viator before and don't think I will again.
First of all, I had 3 different providers that were in charge of this tour. Viator, then Elegant Irish Tours, then Paddys Palace, It is very confusing, once I was directed to the correct company conducting the tour, they said my reservation was not confirmed and name not on list. I had to email my confirmation late the night before the tour. I had also confirmed that the tour would be back at 1pm. Then the driver of the tour I did end up getting confirmed and going on the tour was extremely rude and said he had no way of controlling what time we got back after I explained I had a flight but just wanted to book a taxi from the drop off location to airport and said he could not predict where he dropped us off. The drop offs ended up being far from the pickup location. How is this not something that can be predicted?? The drop off location was not listed on viator or paddys palace websites, nor did the front desk or driver tell me. Plus the driver was just not good at giving narration and telling about the cultural significance of the places we went. He said it's my break time and told us to get off the bus.
Very poorly organized and rude staff. Would not recommend. Having been on many viator and other tours in many countries, this was the worst.
