    Their website does not say that buses run only every hour. I had been waiting in the cold for 40 minutes and I saw numerous other hop-on, hop-off buses, but not this one. I messaged them from their website, but no one responded. They advertise free cancellation, but I was unable to get a refund from them. NOT RECOMMENDED.

  • 07-Nov-2022

    This is a rip off. The site says that they run every 45-60 minutes but we waited for more than an hour and ended up taking "bigbus tours" (slightly more expensive) but they run every 20 minutes. Although we didn't use the tickets, "City Sightseeing" did not provide any refund on the tickets. DON'T USE THEM, spend 10 euros extra with one of the other 2 companies instead!

  • 07-Nov-2022

    Total waste of money, road the bus only one time 2 days in as it was near impossible to find a bus as we watched loads of other company busses arrive and leave time and time again. Purchase with one of the other companies if you choose a hop in hop off. Terrible service

    How do I begin to talk about Gerry? Well, perhaps I should start by saying that Gerry wouldn’t wonder how to begin because he has already been talking the entire time. To be fair, the lad warned us many times: I’ll talk yer ear off!” “You’ll be sick of me before the day is out!” “For those of you who just joined us, I’m Gerry and I talk..a LOT.” These declarations are generally followed with a brief tirade about how is wife is sick of his yammering and he has no choice but to take it out on us…and we are more than happy to let him. As a local Dubliner himself, Gerry has extensive knowledge of the area and points out niche sights with sarcastic wit and delightful banter. He has got a pet name or pun for nearly every landmark in the area and if he doesn’t he isn’t afraid to give helpful child rearing advice. One such gem is scaring your child with a stuffed gorilla in the “Dead Zoo.” Gerry also has opinions on Guiness’ TWENTY-ONE kids, but I don’t want to spoil anything. I’m sure I have learned more about taking care of children in that hour and a half tour than in my four years as a school teacher. Gerry truly adds an immense amount of personality to an already fascinating town. On top of being informative, he also sings, recites poetry and does a terrible impersonation of Tom Cruise’s terrible impersonation of an Irish accent that is so bad it’s good? It comes all the way round and will have you on the floor of the bus. Gerry clearly loves Dublin and he has made me fall in love with it too! He truly spoiled us for the rest of the Hop-On/Hop-Off tours. None other will compare! (Special thanks to Eddie and Maggie in the ticket office. Thank you for your help with the tickets!)

    The buses never arrived for ages , and there was no sales person around to contact ! We had to book the other tour

  • 01-Nov-2022

    Bus driver was rude and dropped us off after being on bus for 3 mins. We catcher the last bus 17:40. From four courts. We had to walk to The Temple Bar with my wife in agony with her right knee being flared up and painful to walk on.

  • 01-Nov-2022

    Booked this tour prior to coming to Dublin. The entire time we were here, we saw ONE bus. We waited almost an hour for it and had to purchase a pass from another company. That company has times posted at every stop and came on time every time. Also, we couldn’t get our money back as the refund is for 24 hours ahead of time (cancellation policy) but you don’t know that they don’t show up until you get there. The only bus we saw was outside of Trinity. Never saw one again. Book elsewhere.

    Everything was very nice from the cave visit to the Cliffs, weather cleared up during the day making everything even better. The driver, John, was awesome with his excellent knowledge of the area and his narration of the various parts of the trip. I would highly recommend doing this trip, especially with John.

  • 03-Oct-2022

    Very informative trip around the city center. The drivers were patient and kept us laughing while getting on and off the bus. Very pleasant day

    My wife and I booked this tour based on great trip advisor reviews but were very disappointed. We show up to redeem our ticket and find out that they were down drivers so the bus only came around every 45 minutes at each stop, and the entire loop takes 2 hours. They also had no schedule or tracking app so it’s just a guess when the bus will show up at each stop. We see the Book of Kells close by then hop on the bus to go to Guinness (6 stops away). What little audio commentary we heard was good. We get off at Guinness and ask when bus stops running and we’re told 7. It’s 4:30 when we finish Guinness and then proceed to wait 45 minutes in the cold and rain for a bus that never comes (meanwhile we see 3 green Dublin Go buses, and they say come around every 20-30 minutes and cover more stops). After checking the website, we find out this bus stopped running at 4 (although another website said 5 and the driver said 7) and proceed to walk back to our hotel. They tell you the bus ticket is good for 24 hours but don’t tell you the bus only runs 6 hours out of the day (10-4). We couldn’t come back the next day to try again because we had another tour booked (Wild Rover tour of Northern Ireland which was excellent, highly recommend). My wife and I had done other hop on hop off tours before but this was the worst. This would only be useful if you get on and spend 2 hours to do the entire loop and then get off. It is not practical to take it to multiple sights like we tried to do. I recommend the Dublin Go green buses instead which were approximately the same price but much more frequent and reliable.
