“Waiting Long time”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

We purchased this one over the Green bus due to using the Sightseeing red bus tours in other major EU cities. This one states bus runs ever 15-20 min in the Pm in the winter months. We waited at one stop for more the 30 min. I understand traffic an such but that is a lot of waiting in the cold. We saw 3 to 4 different Green bus tours almost on every stop before getting our bus. They all stop at the same spots so we were complexed on why we see the other tour company more then our bus, and we were not the only ones. One couple we talked to said they had waited up to 1.5 hrs for a bus to show the day before.
The tour is fine and will bring you to all the nice attractions with commentary on the way.

“Fantastic way to get around and see Dublin anytime of the year.”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

A fantastic, value for money way to get around Dublin and see the sights that the city has to offer. Despite it being winter, no matter which stop in the city we were at, the buses were very regular. A special complement goes to one of our drivers in particular, her name was Anne and she provided a very informant commentary along the whole tour which was much better than the automated recorded voice. Overall a fantastic cheap way to see what Dublin has to offer.

“Singing bus guide - Irish Folklore”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

First time ever on a hop on hop off bus for me and my dad. We only spent one day (landed early - took off late) and this was a perfect way for us to see the centre in a short time. It also stops at some (20 something) of the biggest attractions in Dublin from which we had already planned to visit two of them. It was a stormy day so we had a bit of problems hearing the guide when sitting on the roof, but he was very friendly and entertaining and we enjoyed the ride. We also got to hear a song of a lady I didn't quite get the name of, I think it was on Dame Street, very nice!

“Tourist-friendly team”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

We got talked into buying 2-day tickets for the bargain price of 17 Euros, which was well worth it to get all over Dublin for 2 full days, including visiting the prison, which was an emotional experience and wondering at the size of the park at that end of the city. The guys encouraging people to join the buses are great fun but not pushy, and the commentary is available in other languages as well as the loudspeaker English. Very good value. Not sure about disability access, this might need a few questions at the ticket office, which is on O'Connell Street.
