    This tour was fantastic! My daughter and I had the best day. We’re both gluten free and when we go anywhere we’re prepared to be let down, but not on this tour. It was a pleasure and a relief to be fed the same as the other passengers. Also bottomless tea, or coffee was extremely welcomed. Our guide, Kelly was fun and informative. The historical information that was given, you wouldn’t necessarily learn on your own. I recommend this tour for a fun afternoon in Dublin.

    A really enjoyable experience. My only criticisms are minor. Firstly, it would have been good to have had a bit more info about Dublin. I was hoping the trip would help me to get my bearings, but it didn’t. And secondly, we ended up sat by the engine and so it was very hot during the trip. We also had less of a view being sat downstairs. Even with these criticisms I would definitely recommend this as an activity. The staff were all really lovely and the food was excellent and plentiful!

    I bought this for my partners mother and farther whom are in their 80 s. They said they never experienced any thing like it. The staff were so helpful to them and very polite also the whole experience was fantastic driving all around Dublin and through the park. They went on Valentine’s Day as that was the day they met 60 years ago I would highly recommend this day trip out as for the food DELICIOUS. THANKS for looking after my family. Will book again ten out of ten ❤️
