  • Highly recommend this trip amazing people and viwes.

  • Tour was beautiful, great scenery and interesting history. Perfect for travelers with limited time!

  • Very pretty. I'd just already seen so many very pretty places that this one seemed a bit of a letdown. I'm guessing if I'd done it earlier in my trip, I'd have given it 5 stars. The guide was also a little strange nice, but strange.

  • Our tour was a small group of people and ONE Excellent driver Kevin. He told us all about the area and when we stopped made sure we knew what we should look for. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone and please ask for the best driver in Ireland Kevin.

  • I really enjoyed this tour! The scenery is beautiful! The tour was the perfect length 4hours which let me explore in the morning and then sit see in Dublin in the afternoon. Our tour guide was a little snippy at the end when we asked him to drop us off at the same point he picked us up at, but I would do this tour again.

  • Good route for the time available

  • Absolutely an AMAZING TOUR! Words can not adequately express how much fun this tour was. We had a small group of about 9 people but that made it all the better. Kieran was an excellent driver and tour guide. He was quirky and full of knowledge! He definitely knew how to make us fall in love with Ireland and especially Wicklow and Glendalough. I highly recommend this tour to any and everybody!

  • Our driver/guide, Desmond, was gruff, crusty, knowledgeable, and thoroughly entertaining!!! A very safe driver, too. We were treated at one point to his excellent fiddle-playing and singing - a real treat. The Wicklow region, and specifically Glendalough, is incredibly beautiful... almost feels sacred. We had ample time to explore on our own - and enjoyed a bit of hiking while learning about history. And what a fascinating cemetery there is at Glendalough! Recommend this tour - a great value!

  • Amazing tour with an amazing guide

  • This was a last minute booking for us but we really enjoyed it. The views are spectacular and the driver/guide was fantastic!
