What people are saying about Dublin

Very well thought through tour. If you are quick, thee hours they give are enough to go through all the trains in the National Park, or just enjoy one or two in a slow pace. Two hours other companies give for the walk would be not enough. There are also many sweet stops on the way. Mike was amazing - the program is done with care - first tour guide ever to care to tell things on the way back as well. Light, pleasant humor as well. Highly recommended.

Wow wow wow that was our absolute highlight of our 5 day tour in Dublin. Mega Tourgide, who even played as an extra in GOT and died there 7 times, he just knew everything. All general conditions were in order and the photo shoot at the end was the highlight at the end of an unforgettable day.

So much fun, our guide was amazing! You could certainly tell he loves what he does! I travelled solo and the group was so friendly, all the GOT nerds in one place! Great tour highly recommend!

That was my best decision of the day booking this tour! The dog Loki and the tour guide Zack were super friendly and the tour was very nice. I would do it again when I'm back here.

Dublin by bike is the best. Exploring the city with our guide Colin, a great storyteller about Dublin’s amazing history, was a highlight of our visit.
