Tour way ok at best, the boat part of the tour was not what we expected it be, just a little u-turn in the harbour. Hats were fun.

Roooaaarrr!!!! This was a great start to my trip in Dublin. My children and I were on one of the last ones for the evening, but it was ok since we had just arrived. It was so much fun! Although our trip was delayed by about half an hour, it was worth the wait and the tour guide was great.... More

By far the best tourist thing to do in Dublin. It is so much fun for adults and kids. The driver was gas and we got viking hats to wear and scream at people! Kids loved it and so did we. Its a must do!

It was a blast! We rode in Tyr and our guide was fantastic and funny!! My 8 year old daughter says, "believe it or not, he was very very funny!" This was our first Viking tour and we really enjoyed it! Loved roaring at "Celtics" on the sidewalks! We got lots of roars back from the people of Dublin as... More

This is such an enjoyable and hilarious experience. Apart from actually learning about and seeing most of the main sights the guides just have fun and make the trip an experience not to be forgotten. The route takes you around the main sights such as Christchurch, Trinity College, the harbour etc etc but also a little bit of the beaten... More

Our tour was unfortunately delayed by about half an hour. It was a very windy day and it felt a lot colder but I have to admit (wrap up warm on this tour if not summer), but our tour guide made it worth it. I'm not sure what special juice he was on, but the jokes and delivery had me... More

Our bus was delayed and the weather was abit windy but our tour guide was so funny and we scared a few people on the street roaring haha. The sites we passed were great and definitely learned a lot on the way. Definitely recommend this... More

If you find mother-in-law jokes funny, this is the tour for you. If not, then maybe don't try the viking splash. Whilst the views and historical info were fantastic, Paul the driver's "jokes" were stagnant and appallingly sexist, and at times racist and homophobic to boot. Totally inappropriate for small kids.

This is a nice way to see the city and learn a little bit about the history in a comical way. As you know, a guide makes a tour and our did a great job. The tour is about 1 hour and 20 mins. The water portion of the tour is fairly short, but with the bulky life jackets that... More
