We used this whilst in Dublin, it was easy to book in my get your guide app, the pick up point was easy to find and the tour was good . The bus driver/tour guide was excellent describing the area in an interesting way and with some humour too.

Being able to hop on and hop off rather than stay on the bus the whole time. We bought a 2 day pass so could go back to places we didn’t have time for the day before. Friendly welcoming bus drivers.

IT WAS AN EXCELLENT TRIP WITH FULL ENJOYMENT. AND THE DRIVER (ANNA) SHE EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN A GOOD WAY WITH FULL JOYFUL MIND..... THANK YOU TEAM BIG BUS FOR MAKING OUR TRIP MORE PERFECT

Great way to see the history of Dublin. I have used this service in other cities and will most definitely use in the future. Our guide was both funny and knowledgeable.

Excellent, knowledgeable driver wuth sense of humour.
