First day tour of 4 during our trip to Ireland. Dave was the BEST tour guide—he learned our names and was fun, funny, and full of knowledge. The only downside to the tour was that we were under the assumption that the stop at Avoca Handweavers meant that we were actually seeing the handweaving in action... however, it was more of a craft/food shop. Other than that, we enjoyed our time seeing County Wicklow and getting out of the city. Thanks for a great day, Dave!
We have spent two full weeks in Ireland but this was one of the best tours we ever took, maybe the best. John was our excellent driver and the perfect guide and entertainer ! We were so impressed with his fantastic energy, knowledge, professionalism and love of Ireland ! How can he even do two jobs so well at the same time? We will never forget him and that beautiful day in the Wicklow mountains...
If you are in Dublin and want to get a glimpse of Ireland's country side and medieval sites, this is a must ! Glendalough is also a magical place and suche a rare experience to enjoy !
I have now been on this tour twice. Once with my boyfriend and a second time wth my family. The tour guides are excellent and willing to help take photos. The sights are breathtaking and worth every penny.
It is a very pleasant trip, lots interesting scene to see and the driver guide is super nice. took us to lots nice places and gave us a good guided tour of Glendaloughs medieval monastic settlement, The dark Guinness lake is very interesting and gave us a try of Irish whiskey, it tasted good. We like it.
This was a great tour! It is guaranteed to provide you beautiful views through the Wicklow National Park. There were many opportunities to get off the bus and walk around in the mountains. Our guide, Mark, did a great job. He was very purposeful to go through and talk with each person on the tour, even though it was a larger group. That made it feel like a smaller tour group. One part of the description that confused us was when it talked about Avoca Handweavers. We understood that to mean actually seeing the handweavers, but this was actually just a rest stop/convenience shop. This wasn't a big deal, just a misunderstanding on our part. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip!
The scenery was spectacular, even in March. But the bus driver made the entire trip so special. His knowledge and explanations of Irish history made the tour very interesting. Amazingly, the driver actually brought a snow shovel with him as there was a part of the Wicklow passage that was still not clear from some unexpected winter weather. He shoveled the road so we could get through! Unbelievable service. The bus driver received applause from the passengers. Had it not been for him, we would not have made it through to Glendalough. We were mesmerized by his stories. He was such a pleasant man and the trip was wonderful.
This was the craziest trip and it was fun. John our bus driver was hilarious. True Irishman and man could he drive that bus. Had a great time.

For any nature-lovers out there who also love Ireland, this is your tour! Both Wicklow and Glendalough are beautiful, and the history behind them is relevant to the city of Dublin, thereby heightening one's historical appreciation for the city.
As of the writing of this, it isn't indicated in either the inclusions or exclusions, but there will be a stop for lunch that will be at your expense. No negative connotations for this, the lunch was actually really good, it's just fyi. The place we went to accepted my MasterCard just fine, but YMMV.
This tour was excellent. John was our guide. What a great tour guide he was. We couldn't have asked for better. He just loves what he does and you can really see it in his demeanor and just how happy and fun he is. The Wicklow mountains are spectacular. On the way there he took us on a scenic ride on the outskirts of Dublin were Bono, Enya, and other celebrities live. We also went to Glendalough and hugged St. Kevin's Cross. All in all a great day tour with a great guide. Highly recommend this.
