Had nothing to do our last day in Dublin so was glad to see availability for this tour at 7am for the 9am tour lol Driver John was hilarious and entertaining the whole time! The tour was way more than I thought it would be. I’m glad I saw posts of some of the stops being short or It would’ve bothered me lol. The coffee break stop to eat is much better than the restaurant for lunch(it was ok compared to the coffee break place). It was cold and windy but that’s Ireland weather for you I guess.

Where do you find such a guide!?
Mar. 2020 • Couples
This was my second tour to this area. Great tour, nice stops. Avoca was a bit disappointing. Just an expensive modern shop and tourist drop off.
But as soon as we entered the Wicklow Mountains everything was great.
John was the greatest and entertaining tour guide i ever knew. A guy in his 70s loving his job and his country. Full recommendation!

Perfect tour with Denis and Mick
Mar. 2020
Last week Denis did a tour for our group of Danish students visiting Dublin.
Everything about the trip was just perfect. Beautiful countryside!
Denis was very good at telling stories and making conversation with our teenagers. The food his wife had made us was lovely and the overall experience was really good for everyone. We were also very pleased with Mick as a driver.
Dennis even helped us book another bus we needed for the next day.
We would highly recommend this tour!

Choose differently - go with Wild Rovers tour group
Mar. 2020
We had previously used Wild Rovers tours and had an absolutely outstanding experience. Unfortunately this one was not on par. Our tour guide John was nice enough but too many personal diatribes about world hunger and politics. Did learn some history but it felt 'all over the map' The microphone was scratchy - music was loud and even worse John was singing into the mic. while driving. Yikes.
Wicklow is definitely worth seeing but would use a different company

What a great day!
Feb. 2020
Our tour of Wicklow and Glendalough was indeed "wild and wonderful." Our guide John couldn't have been more entertaining. He is knowledgeable, friendly, funny, enthusiastic and accommodating. Seeing part of the Irish countryside under his tutelage is a must for anyone trying to decide on a tour. Go with this one!! We give John 5 stars!
