The trip was very informative...

John B | Feb 2020

The trip was very informative and gave an excellent overview of the city. Many of the historical points of interest were explained. The tour gave us a good background for our first visit to Dublin. We were able to plan our adventures.

We had a great time...

Timea H | Feb 2020

We had a great time and the commentaries were absolutely enjoyable, witty and funny. In spite of the weather we could enjoy the rides.

Every big city I visit...

Donnamarie | Nov 2019

Every big city I visit I like to use Big Bus for at least 2 days. Good value as I got in Dublin a night tour and whiskey distillery for free. Night tour could be missed but distillery great. One of the days had a live guide who was excellent.
