Good Way to see the City
Nancy_H
, Aug 2022
It is a good way to get an idea of what is available in the city and where it is located. Our first driver was very personable and talked a lot about each stop while the 2nd driver seemed to use the pre-recorded messages about the stops. Either way it allowed us the ability to get off the bus and visit a site and get back on the bus to get to the other sites.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Thanks for your lovely review. We offer live and multilingual commentary on each alternative bus. Your 2nd driver would have been on a multilingual tour so that was why you had a pre-recorded tour. We hope to see you again soon

Fantastic experience

Got on at the first stop. Great driver, friendly, professional, knowledgeable and funny. Got off at the Guinness Storehouse and rejoined. Finished the rest of the tour with another fab driver, who gave us a little sing song. Would definitely recommend doing this if you want to see all the historical sights of Dublin.

Many thanks for your excellent review. Delighted you had the opportunity to experience the tours from a number of drivers, hop on and off and really experience what we have to offer. We hope to see you again sometime.

Dublin is a busy city and locating sites on the Hop On Hop Off bus is the best way to get around. The bus has earphones for the commentary in several languages. Seats were comfortable and the driver was helpful.

Well worth doing on your first day for orientation. If you can speak English, avoid the multilingual bus as there isn't much live commentary. The other busses are live commentary and therefore a little more fun.

Worst Service Ever

Didn’t receive our tickets after paying. Communicated via email a number of times and still didn’t get our tickets. We paid A$90.36 and have requested a refund as our 48 hour tickets are about to expire. Still nothing heard.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Hi Sorry you are not happy . You purchased the tickets through Viator and they should have sent them as we don't have your contact details. We asked you to send your email address at 10.16 am to solve this issue but we don't seem to have received it yet. The good news is that the tickets are still valid as they have not yet been validated Michael DoDublin Team

Great way to see and learn Dublin! We rode it for two days!
Jackie_L
, Aug 2022
We loved visiting Trinity College and touring with a student, the Archeology Museum, ONeills Pub was great food and cider and Guinness. Shopping at the Aran Store was a great find. Hopping on and off for two days we really got to know our way around. Be sure to look for the green signpost on the street identifying where the bus will stop. We sat in the front seats on the top for the best view!!!

Interesting tour with an animated narrator but by the time he announced each sight, it was too late to snap a picture, or sometimes to even see it.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Thanks for your review, sorry to hear you had this experience. There is a lot to point out in our great city and our drivers are trained to mention all of the major attractions. Sometimes in busy areas where there is a lot to talk about there is not a lot of time to give advance warning as they are discussing something else. We would love to welcome you back to take the tour again and get time to get the pics you wanted.

Our 1st bus driver Carla telling the story of Molly Malone after pointing out her statue. Then singing the song with a grand voice, with the whole bus joining on on the chorus. Well done Carla.

One of our busdrivers were the best! He was so entertaining that we went around the whole tour with him. He had alot of history (and stories) to share and he did it really well. He had jokes for everybody. One quote: For the love of god, get of the bus! 😂 If you get him, you are lucky 👍

We often take hop on/ hop offs but this one was great with a funny guide/bus driver who kept us interested. The others that we have taken of late have been recorded and it is much more stale. This was much more fresh and fun!

This was a great way to explore the city. The entire tour round trip took about 90 minutes. This gave us a chance to see various places we wanted to see and decide whether to hop on or come back. We did the complete circle tour first then hopped off. We had live narration as opposed to pre-recorded. The driver infused humor in his narration and provided several tips and tricks to various attractions.

Thanks for your review. It is a great way to see the city and doing 1 full loop first is always recommended. Hope you had a great time in our wonderful City.
