Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave great tidbits. There were ample opportunities to hop on and off and would highly recommend to see the entire city from a new prospective

Not so sure about this bus…
Robin_P
, Aug 2022
The number of passengers wasn’t monitored so twice we ended up with a person standing in front of us. We couldn’t see around them. There were so many people there were no more seats. The bus makes a loop and you have ti get off at the last stop and change buses yo a new one if you want to go past stop 24. On one of the buses The “guide” was a recording that was difficult to hear and on another bus it was hard to hear.

Do NOT do this experience!!!
Caroline_K
, Aug 2022
This experience was an enormous waste of money. The bus did not start until late and we spent 45 minutes standing at a stop that the bus ultimately skipped. The paper maps and maps on the app do not reflect the very limited service and it is clear this tour group has struggled during the pandemic. Do city sightseeing instead - they had tons of great stops, plenty of busses that actually followed the route, and you never saw city sightseeing customers waiting. We ultimately skipped the bus and did Uber for the day. Waste of money.

Use local Green Dublin Hop On/Off
Jason_T
, Aug 2022
Our guide Anne on the one bus was amazing. Very informative and knowledgeable about Dublin and Irish history. 5 stars for her. Only rated this 3 out of 5 due to some drop offs were not the same as the pick up points for some reason. The Dublin Green busses that are hop on and off picked us up at the two locations and didn’t charge us and said that our provider was notoriously bad for this. I’d take the Green Dublin hop on off before I would recommend this one.

Great to see the city and get your lay of the land. It also allowed us to see a lot while giving our feet a little bit of a rest. The driver/host provided a wonderful and insightful history of Dublin.

It was great to see the city. St. Patrick’s was an amazing history lesson and the tour if Teelings was interesting and enjoyable. I wish the buses would have come more frequently.

The Hop-on Hop-off Big Bus is always a great way to get around cities at a very affordable price. Most of the drivers provide commentary on the various sites which is very interesting and fun.

Great tour and really friendly staff. We had some trouble getting our tickets to pull up and the staff was very helpful. The tour was live commentary, and we thought the driver did a great job.

Not worth the money.

We waited for over 45 minutes for a bus to arrive at a stop on the route. Don't believe the 20-30 minutes between buses.

AWFUL and a waste of time
Margaret_D

I have no story because the only bus that showed up at stop 19, drove right past without stopping. We couldn't waste our only day in dublin waiting around for busses that don't show up or that drive right past us

Just ok
Stacey_W
, Jul 2022
We typically use these when we first arrive to gain a sense of awareness to both geography and history. This one was ok, just seemed a bit slower and not running as often as we are used to.. Transaction is expensive in Dublin, suggest you get to know and understand the public routes..

Some of the bus drivers are funny and very entertaining. One even sang an Irish folk song and everybody applauded. The description though did not give a heads up to passengers that the entrances are not free.
