Isha M Renner

It was affordable, I get too full days, got a discount at their shops and the live interaction from the bus tour guides where amazing and they always had us laughing or learning something new and interesting

Mrs Karen Grisley

We booked the hop on hop off bus and. Guiness tour.both brilliant. Greatful we didn't book the dublin green buses hop on hop off tours. As they went on strike.

Mrs. Diane Thomas

Excellent service and tour. Everyone was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The guide adapted his level in English to help my students understand rather than them use the French translation service. Would recommend this to everyone THANK YOU

MRS M WYNNE

The hop on hop off bus offers a very friendly and helpfull service with some humour thrown in

Mrs Caroline Lynskey

What a great way to see Dublin. Highly recommend using this service if you haven't been to Dublin before. The staff were great, especially the live commentary on some of the buses. You get a great view of the city and the option to hop on and off at whichever stop you choose. Certainly good value for money.
