Faith Flanagan

We had a great 2 day experience. However, at the end of the day on Sunday, we waited for the bus to take us back to our lodgings at 4 pm (thought it ran through 5:30) and it did not arrive. Apparently it only goes till 3:30, which we did not know. We had to take a cab back to the phoenix Park area Ann was a great tour guide as were several others who shared interesting subjects. It seemed to work better when the driver was not also the tour guide

Had a great experience!!!

Cobina M. Ladner

We had a fun and informative ride on the Hop on Hop off. The guide was terrific and it got us oriented and around the city quickly.

Lisa Hexley

Great way to see the whole city

Colin Hexley

The bus guides were very well informed and helpful. Also a microphone is used so there is no need for earphones. Do not miss the free drinks which you can have in bars just for showing your bus tickets. A real treat!
