My day with Walkabout Wicklow and our guide Michael was a great day with beautiful areas in Wicklow Mountains National Park, a short stop at Glendalough and driving through the wonderful soft hills of the national park. It was a small group, this was really cool after a few days in Dublin with so many people. Great tour, nice guide,... More

If you love nature and wish to take a day's break Wicklow is the place to go. Its overwhelming with nature, history and cultural heritage.

This was pretty much an all day event and it was definitely supposed to rain all day but it ended up being beautiful all day! First we went on a hike, then stopped for lunch at poppies which was delicious (I had a guinness beef pot pie). We then went to Guinness lake I want to say where we went... More

If you choose to take this tour, be apprised that Wicklow is not a town, but a region of mountains. The tour is a drive and a hike. Be sure to wear good shoes that support your ankles as the hike can be to a hilltop in the Wicklow Mountains. Very nice views.

Our Guide Micheal Bryne was great, his knowledge of the area was a real plus, This day tour gets you into the country side to see the true beauty of the Irish Country side.

Walkabout Wicklow was the best part of my trip to Dublin. The day started off cloudy/overcast yet as were we hiking (a very small group) to the top of the overlook of the sea..the clouds parted and the sun shined through! It was a beautiful panaramic view and very memorable. Michael is a great guide. I was actually a couple... More

Consumers should know, these are all the same company! We had two guides on our day, and it was a good thing we did for a few reasons. I think the Hilltop Treks van was made for cargo, not people. There was no heat and no ventilation (other than opening windows) which was problematic on a cold February day. The... More

Hi, I'm glad that you enjoyed the tour. The heating has worked every other day and tour and typically fails on the 1 day that it unsuspectingly snows & is fixed now. I had it fixed the day after your tour as Micheal had mentioned it to me. As he always checks the vehicles before and after every tour. There... More

We had a wonderful hike at a nice pace through beautiful wooded areas and to an amazing overlook of the Irish Sea. In the afternoon we went through pretty countryside to Glendalough and eventually Wicklow National Park. It was a great value and the group was small. Our guide Michael was very friendly and informative. He wanted everyone to enjoy... More

We booked a Walkabout Wicklow in the Tourist Office expecting something awesome as it was advertised as Dublin´s No 1 Tour. We were told that we might have a different car from the one in the picture. That would not be a problem we thought. We were supposed to be in Suffolk street at 9.05. We were there early just...

Unfortunately for us the day we went was a bad weather day. I'm sure I'd probably write a different review if the weather had cooperated. I think that it would be better to change the itinerary for the day when it is rainy and foggy, instead of driving and hiking higher up the mountain where there is no view at... More
