My friend and I (both 20) did the horseback riding option. Our guide was so sweet and really fun. It was just the two of us and the our guide was so flexible with anything we wanted to do. We were both beginners, but she gave us a great quick lesson in the beginning before we went out into the... More

We did a tour of Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough with HilltopTreks from Dublin and had a very nice time. Our tour guide was Emily and she was great! She was full of information about the sights we were seeing and even sung us some traditional Irish songs, both in English and in Gaelic, on the tour. We got picked up... More

We recently had a fantastic day on the Wicklow tour. We did a horseback ride as our optional activity--a staff member at the stable did a 30 min lesson with us in the barn before we left. The ride was through some pastures around the stable which had very nice views of the mountains in the distance, but we were... More

We took the walking tour with Michael Byrne as a guide. We loved every minute, from hiking up a hill in the forest to singing "The Wild Rover" as we drove along. It was clear that our guide loves Wicklow and shared that with us.

Since it was my very first trekking in Wicklow, I had really enjoyed the sightseeing and the cool weather. However, you must put lots of moisturizer and sunblock to reduce the dryness and the sunrays. Also, a pair of good, water-resistant shoes, (extra pair will be useful) as there were wet areas. Finally, the walking pace was dependent on your... More

It was indeed a pleasant experience. I had been in Wicklow and seen these places before but in different conditions. Thanks to our guide Emily who made it a memorable experience. It is worth meeting new people from different parts of the world and share our experience. Well worth it and enjoy while the summer and beautiful weather last.

I'd been to Wicklow before, with another tour (Wild Wicklow), but this one was much better. Took you to more places, with more choices of activity, and much smaller groups. Though you didn't get a guided tour included at Glendalough, you get information during the car trip. Good tour for someone who wants to see much, and not spend very... More

I absolutely loved this tour. I couldn't believe how quickly we were out in the country. Had a wonderful day rambling through the hills, learning about the flora & fauna of the area, and making some lovely new friends. Brilliant day.
