“Wicklow Day tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The Wicklow Glendalough tour was amazing. Trip leader Denis was excellent making sure we got the most out of our day. Small group so we got a more intermit experience of the countryside. This trip is a must do whilst in Dublin!

“Great excursion into the countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We were staying in Dublin without a car for a couple days. We took the Wicklow and Glendalough tour. We were fortunate to have good weather which added to the scenery. Our tour guide Denis did an excellent job. He was thorough, friendly, knowledgable, patient and accommodating. We were 14 people and if anyone wanted to stop for pictures he'd stop if able. We had ample time at every stop. We only had a couple days in town and feel this tour was totally worth the near full day 9:30 AM - 6 PM.

“Totally amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We did the Wicklow and Glendalough tour. One thing I really liked about this tour was that we were only 10 people in a van and Tommy, our driver and guide, gave us a more personalised attention.
It's certain that in this kind of tour one spends several hours in the mean of transport, but Tommy tried to do this time enjoyable by singing Irish songs and teaching us how to sing them. It was really fun.
Ireland is well known as the Emerald Island and you can understand why when you see places such as Wicklow mountains and Glendalough. This last one is especially beautiful.

“Excellent tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This tour was totally worth the money and was absolutely amazing. Its reasonable and yet they included many small stops. Denis was an excellent guide and with a minivan we were able to stop at a few off beat locations which were stunning. Wicklow mountains r def worth visiting. There were sufficient restroom stops on the way. It can get extremely windy and gusty, so do dress appropriately. Denis was kind enough to arrange some tea and coffee with a bit of good ol jameson mixed in if you want. In the cold, this was so comforting. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is happy to travel with a small group.

“Couldn't ask for better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I didn't know what to expect besides some scenery outside of Dublin so I was extremely impressed! Denis is an amazing guide- so friendly and knowledgable. He never rushes, picked me up at my hostel door, and has so much knowledge about everything Ireland. You will not regret this tour the views are spectacular and a great value!!
