The online booking worked well. I found the closest pick-up point quite easily. The bus was clean and well maintained and the driver was excellent. I particularly appreciated his personable approach to ticket issuing and to people in general but his commentary, jokes and quotes added significant value to the experience. The bus route allowed me to get a great overview of and orientation of the city for later exploration.

It was easy to get on and get off. A great way to see highlights of Dublin. Also each driver was personable and had a great sense of humor!

Great value! Live commentary from the driver was a cool change from other Hop On Hop Off tours we’ve taken.

Easy to access and an easy way to see lots of the ‘sights’

Bus every 20 mins. Great local knowledge and entertainment
