Thomas was my father's driver on a sightseeing tour of Dublin on Feb. 21st. Despite the rush hour traffic Thomas was relaxed, had a lot of information about the sights and continually let the passengers know which stop was coming up, so they always knew where they were if they wanted to get off. My father would recommend this tour.

We bought a 48hr pass so we could see as much of the city as possible as well as try and visit all the attractions. Each driver brought their own flare to the tour, as well as adding their own personal commentaries on the city they love. Declan especially stood out to us as he had the bus in stitches... More

The drivers really make these buses. Their knowledge is exceptional and they entertain you as you ride around. They are approachable and helpful. We really enjoyed their wit, jokes and singing. Not to be missed!

Bought a 48 hour ticket and hoped off at: kilmainham gaol, dublin zoo and Guinness storehouse. It was good to have received education on other points of interest along the way. Live tours were better than pre recorded. Steven was full of facts and wit and was a great driver in the trickiest of situations... narrow streets and awkwardly parked... More

My wife and I arrived in Dublin on Saturday morning and immediately set off to go on the bus tour. It was a wise decision. You get 24 hours hop on/hop off with the Dublin Pass. The tour, whilst giving you a bit of Ireland's history also gives you an idea of things that you may be interested in doing.... More

With a variety of tour guides and drivers able to deliver a comprehensive and informed experience (Martin & Martin) - we travelled around Dublin at our leisure able to 'hop on and off' the tour bus at various convenient stops whilst enjoying what the city had to offer.

Had loads of fun when Richie was our driver, we all felt like we learnt a lot from him, more than when it was the recording, and he was funny as well. There are loads of stops that are all near great attractions. The buses are very regular so you aren't waiting round for long. Best to book online as... More
