Nice Tour, friendly guide.

We got to see the sights around town and learned a bit about Kilkenny's history. If you are visiting the town, it sure is worth a look.

This tour was a really great way to see all the sights of Kilkenny and it was very informative as it gave a lot of the citys history in a short time (30 minutes) the tour guide was very friendly. You should definitely do the tour.

Our guide was knowledgeable and this wasn't a cheesy tour. Such a great way to outline the city in 30 minutes, so you can then go back to tour the places of interest. Highly recommend!

A great way to get a quick glimpse of the sights of Kilkenny. There was a very good commentary on the train and it drove around some places tourists probably wouldn't get to see otherwise. It also covered the main points of the city which you could then go and have a more thorough look at if you wanted. Well... More

These little trains are always a good way to get a quick overview and tour of a town and this was the same. Although this one wss only 30 minutes it was a good trip and a good way to see the sights. Based on our experience we would recommend this attraction.

While on tour, we had a three hour stop in Kilkenny. This bus is a great opportunity to see quickly the city. Though we had no stops, we were able to take good pictures. A great plus is ability to open the window. The driver was very sweet!

The driver was very friendly, cheerful and helpful. The trip gave the most informative tour of all the ones we took whilst travelling Ireland. Find them by Kilkenny castle and have a comfortable fun tour!

A very cute way to get a summary of the city's history and tourist locations. Specially if you only have a short time, the short 30 minute tour is highly recommended.
