What people are saying about County Wicklow

The tour guide was the most cheerful and friendly person I have ever met. He talked all throughout the tour and gave a lot of interesting information not only about the places that were part of the tour but about Dublin and Ireland in general. The places we visited were all absolutely beautiful and the tour itself was very relaxing and interesting. There were also quite a lot of stops in different spots along the route to take photos and walk around a little. A short but fascinating tour around the picturesque Glendalough was included, and if you wanted you could also walk among the hills to the Upper Lake. If you have a chance to visit Dublin, don't even think twice about taking this tour.

The tour exceeded our expectations. All was executed smoothly and timely. High five to John - a very charismatic driver, tour guide and excellent storyteller in one person. His everlasting energy and friendly atmosphere he created from the very moment we entered the coach made this trip an unforgettable experience. Bus itself was convenient and clean, route well planned with few stops for coffee and food. Highly recommended.

Excellent trip to see more of Ireland. From Dublin via Sandy Beach up to Wicklow with a fresh walk at the end. Stepping out of the bus in the highlands and weather turning in minutes almost blowing you away. Wicklow hills made the name of the tour come true

The trip was really nice! Our driver and guide John is the born entertainer. He was friendly and really helpful. The stops were really beautiful and John had told us a lot of stories to each place. It was an amazing day, thank you!

The driver John is one of the best tour guides/drivers!
