We had an extremely pleasant tour with an extraordinary bus driver. Though small jokes and songs we got to have an amazing experience (our bus driver sang „to the left“ by beyonce and „the wheels on the bus) greetings from Germany!!

Lovely experience! Experienced guides/drivers with very personal, colorful and unique presentation of the sites. Some of them very funny, demonstrating amazing talent in singing, driving/drifting :-) and story telling. Thank you!

well worth the money with a great bus guide in Brian who was informative and also engaging. The Guinness Storehouse is a must for a Dublin visit as well so combing the both was great.

John, the driver, was excellent and had us in stitches with his descriptions and explanations he should be on the stage. He looked after us all brilliantly.

We had fun, Dublin is beautiful. The driver/guide was funny and knowledgeable.
