We absolutely loved our trek with Walkabout Wicklow! ..... Our guide Terry was wonderful and the scenery was beautiful! You're surrounded by mountains and can see various peaks, lakes, and waterfalls throughout. We were one of the few tourists on the walk; almost everyone else was a member of a social club that walks together once a month. Everyone was... More

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

My girlfriend and I took this tour on our second day in Ireland, not sure what to expect. Michael, our tour guide for the day was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in insuring that you enjoy the day. We took an amazing hike in County Wicklow, where Michael went at a good pace, leading us through a beautiful countryside... More

This was an amazing tour. Mike is a fantastic guide, and really passionate about what he does. Wicklow was exactly what I imagined Ireland to look like - completely green, peaceful, and absolutely gorgeous. Mike took us on a challenging hike to the top of a waterfall in the park, and then along a gorgeous trail. We got in the... More

The tour picked up at a convenient location, and our guide, Mike, was very personable and informative about the landscape and attractions. We got to know each other and the Irish countryside on a personal level, and the hike was an experience that I will not soon forget. The sights were quite breathtaking, and we got to see areas not...
