Tour is really worth it - had a great time around Wicklow mountains, Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens. Johnny Byrne is a very knowledgeable guide and a genuinely fun Irish chap. Shame the time allocated to each stop is slightly too short for my taste! Will have to go back ;)

Fantastic few days hiking in the Galtee mountains with a great group of people. Really friendly and easy-going - the people! And there was lots of flexibility and options for hikes and exploring the cultural treasure of Cahir. I look forward to another trip soon.

Dropped off one person for horseback riding, four including our party of two at Powerscourt, and seven went hiking with Michael. After... More

We had a fabulous daytrip to the Wicklow Mountains with Hilltop Trek's excellent guide Shane O'Flaherty. We loved the beautiful rolling countryside, our stops at Powerscourt and Glendalough, and all the beautiful scenery along the way. Shane was highly informative and friendly, and is an excellent driver. He was kind and considerate, didn't rush us, and gave us a clear... More

My friend and I wanted to see the countryside, but were afraid the Cliffs of Moher were too far away--we had only a few days in Dublin. I am so glad we chose to see Glendalough instead. We drove out from Dublin in a 14-passenger van, and we enjoyed getting to know the other young people who were in the... More

Had a great day exploring Wicklow! Our tour guide Johnny was the best! Loads of local knowledge and a great sense of humor. The horse riding was fun, the stables made sure we were all comfortable on our horses before we went out for the ride. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get out of the... More

John picked the 8 of us up at our hotel in center city and escorted us to the countryside on a most enjoyable day!! Our Irish friend joined us and he commented on how much he learned from John. John was so informative and easy to be with. He knows his stuff!! Wicklow mountains and Glendalough were beautiful. Thanks John... More

We went to Powerscourt firts and it was really beautiful. John was very knowledgeable, not only about the places but of the history of the Irish people. Had plenty of time at Powerscourt. Afterwards we lunched at Poppies, great food and friendly staff; and then we off to the Wicklow Mountains. The mountains were spectacular. We went to Glendalough Saw... More

My second day in Ireland was simply unforgettable. We ( my daughter, son in law and I) took the one day tour to Wicklow. Our tour guide made the experience even more especial, thanks to his passion about Ireland and the very interesting information he shared with the group. First stop was Powerscourt House, such a beautiful installation with lovely... More
