What a fantastic trip!! Went on a tour to Wicklow mountains!! Our guide Damien was fantastic!! Despite the horrific weather he was a gem! He was willing to do anything that was asked of him and was more than willing to get himself soaked by the rain for the cause of us having a great time! Not everybody inboard was as willing as ourselves to just get out there n live in up in the non-stop downpour but i think we made the right decision to just get out in the rain n take it all in!! We were not disappointed!! Would recommend this tour to anybody but if the weathers bad still make sure u get out of the bus n throw yourselves into the Irish mountains you will not be disappointed!!

Absolutely amazing tour definitely would go again! The night before our tour was due our tour guide rang to let us know the weather forcast may be an issue then called the next morning to let us know it was still going ahead. We only had two other people on our tour and it was phenomenal. Our tour guide, Damian, was incredibly knowledgable about not only Ireland but the rest of the world as well. He made the tour an absolute delight and one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland.

I am not sure if there could be a better tour than the ones offered by Daytours Unplugged. It was so nice having a small group as opposed to the bigger companies who care more about how much money they make. We were also able to gain more knowledge of the city because of this small group. It made traveling so easy. The sights chosen in the tours are also unbelievable. We got to see many different parts of Ireland. Don't hesitate. Get this tour booked. And the tour guide was amazing!

I was extremely happy to discover this company because it offered half-day (11am-4pm) tours. This was a lovely change from all the other companies that seemed to only off 10+ hour long experiences. The group was intimate, with a total of six people, which gave the tour a pleasant and personal feel. Our tour guide, Damien, was a font of interesting knowledge. He went above and beyond to provide us with helpful tips, far beyond what would be normally expected of a tour guide. I left the tour with an expanded knowledge of the area and Ireland as a whole, as well as recommendations for local B+B's, walking trails, and fun things to do in town. Could not recommend this tour more emphatically. Day Tours Unplugged is clearly a family-owned business that goes out of its way to ensure a pleasant experience for all of its customers.

I had a great time on this tour. Our guide, Damian, was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. He encouraged questions and gave everyone the opportunity to participate. The tour group was small and there was a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We were always on schedule and saw everything we planned on seeing, yet there was a friendly, unscripted aspect to the whole experience. It did not feel like an overly-packaged, we-do-and-say-exactly-the-same-thing-everyday kind of tour.

I was eager to get out of Dublin and explore more of the countryside. Therefore, it was a pleasant surprise that the ride out of Dublin was so interesting. Damian pointed out Viking influences in the city that I would not have noticed on my own. In addition to discussing Ireland's history, he also provided insight on how the Irish are now responding to national and international challenges. I also appreciated that Damian provided a lot of information and interesting perspectives without overdoing it. He presented us with a lot of new information and different perspectives, but often let us follow up (with questions) on what we we were most interested in knowing. This gave the tour a great balance.

Damian was a great guide and I highly recommend him. I would definitely go on another tour with Day Tours Unplugged.
