Glendough Private tour
, Sep 2021
Our tour guide was Excellent. Very nice and very knowledgeable. He made the entire experience relaxed and comfortable for us. Very accommodating. The sights are absolutely beautiful.
, Sep 2021
We loved Glendalough and the waterfall. However, we ended up back in Dublin and were never taken to Powerscourt Gardens. To our drivers credit we never asked why, however, we were disappointed. Driver was a nice man though and thoroughly showed us the abbey ruins.
Outstanding tour with outstanding guide
, Aug 2021
Every part of the trip was memorable - we took the scenic route from Dublin to Powerscourt and saw beautiful Dublin Bay and the homes of the many celebrities who live there. We then got to spend a full 90 minutes in the gardens at Powerscourt, which should be on everyone's travel bucket list. We then drove in the Wycklow Mountains to the Glendalough Monastery site, and finished up with lunch at a local pub. All of these sites stand on their own merit, but Jimmy, our driver, ensured that we had fun and learned and had an unforgettable day. He was a consumate professional and gave our group exactly what we needed.

Hi Stuart, We are so happy to hear you had an amazing time on your tour with Jimmy. Jimmy is possibly one of the best guides in Ireland and you can really get a sense for the passion he has for Ireland when he tells you about the history. So happy you took the time to write a review for us. We really appreciate it. Thanks again for choosing us for your tour. Safe travels and slan go foil, Bradley
Way to see the Irish Countryside

On our second day in Ireland, we had decided to take a private tour with just our other friends to get to see areas of Ireland that we wouldn't see on our pending 10 day tour to follow. The guide was knowledgeable and told us stories to entertain while driving. The scenery was splendid. Highly recommend for an extra day in Ireland
Gerry was great!!

Tour of Glendalough, Wicklow and Powerscourt Gardens
, Apr 2019
The sights are breathtaking but to fully appreciate the tour, you need a tour guide that is both informative and entertaining. Our guide and tour owner, Jimmy Mulrooney, provided facts and fables, political history, cultural history, literary history and all with a twinkle in his eye. He does not rush you through the sites. Many companies offer this private tour. I would definitely suggest finding Jimmy's tour!

Hi Scenic1, Thank you for the kind 5-star review of your tour with Jimmy. We are delighted you have a good experience. Jimmy like all our guides are passionate about Irish history and it really comes across on the tours. I hope your trip to Ireland overall was a pleasant one. Slán go fóill, Touristy Team

We really enjoyed touring with our guide Alan Bradley. He is very knowledgeable and made our tour so interesting. We got to see the top sights in Wicklow, Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens. Alan was more than happy to change up the itinerary based on our suggestions. He knew the history of every location and added some light hearted amusing stories along the way. What an enjoyable way to spend the day learning about the local culture and long history of Ireland. We plan on visiting Ireland again and will definitely book Alan to tour the west coast. Highly recommend!

The weather and our wishes changed the plan, so we didn't do the described tour at all. Our driver guide Alan was able to put together just what fit us in devising a customized itinerary. When you don't want to follow the crowd or get on another bus, do this! You're worth it.

Im not sure how to rate this tour!! For some reason our guide, William Redmond, who was a very nice guy told us we did not have time to go Glendalough---which was the major part of this tour!!! We did go to the waterfall and Powerscourt gardens. Both were lovely but I feel that we paid a lot to do just these two places. He then stopped in a little town that was on the way back for about 45 minutes to kill time! We were very disappointed and feel that we were charged way too much for this tour!!! I would really think twice about using Viator again! I have recommended your company to many others and will not be doing that any longer as I do not want to hear complaints from my family and friends! I would appreciate your following up on this and getting back to me! Thank you! Lynn Jackson
