“The big red bus.......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Book a day trip with these guys and, depending on which guide you get, you will have a real insight into the wonderful Irish sense of humour........we had some good laughs.
All of the drivers we had were friendly and helpful.....we would travel with them again

“First Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Having visited Dublin countless times before, doing the bus tour had never been something I had thought about. This is great value and what you dont catch on the first day, you have an opportunity to do it all again the following day. The commentary on board was very informative.
Would definitely recommend this tour.

“Disappointing tour”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

The concept of hop on hop off tours is poorly served by this example in Dublin. Buses are supposed to arrived ever 8-9 minutes but it took at least 20 before bus arrived, the term shortly was stretched to its ultimate limit by the representatives of this company. Admittedly their task was complicated by rain but that revealed practices that frankly we dangerous to passengers e.g. passengers permitted to stand in stairwell . Conflicting advice provided in regard to valid duration of tickets; 48 hours upon purchase then during journey we were told it was 24 hours.

The accompanying commentary was acceptable but lacked the depth of their competitors. Some of the fleet were in a poor state with leaking seals. When raised with representatives dismissed as being due to passengers' wet jackets, however the suspicions as to the cause were confirmed when sitting dry seat and rained water began leaking through seals.

Taking the hop on hop off name on face value we were more than a little surprised when arriving at the designated start /stop point and were ordered off the bus with little explanation. Fortunately rain had temporarily stopped and there was bus that was waiting. Disappointed that the previous bus left on tour before the alternative bus we were ordered to catch left.
