I was very disappointed with this tour this year! Last year my Dublin Tour was excellent! The really good part was the stop at St. Patrick's Cathedral. The rest was a "drive" around the city!
Waited at the spot for pickup for almost an hour, no busses. Ended up having to buy new tickets from another bus line to see the city.
Ensure that you pay attention to the map and which stop is approaching. The audio track does not always sync up with the appropriate stop and the sidewalk signs are not marked with the stop number. The driver(s) do not stop at each individual stop, so advance notice will need to be given. This is a good way to see the sites that are outside the central city, but everything is still within talking distance.
We were able to get a good overview of Dublin. The commentary and route wereinteresting. Inconvenient to have to go to a central location to start and not just pick it up at a stop like other HOHO buses.
I am really an easy going, positive person but I am having a hard time coming up with any positives about this tour! Our day started when we walked to the closest stop to our hotel only to find there was not a bus stop sign posted there. To be on the safe side we walked to the next stop. We were told by a staff member handing out brochures that buses came every 20 minutes. We waited 45 minutes before we ever saw a bus for this company. There were several other hop on hop off tours by other companies and we saw 3-4 buses for them come through the stop while we were waiting. Once we finally got on the bus we were disappointed to learn that the only commentary was prerecorded and provided very little information. Our bus driver added none of his own commentary and was literally just there to drive the bus. The commentary was so spotty that there were several drop off locations that went unannounced. At very least I felt they should have told you what stop you were on! When we got to a stops the driver often would roll through them rather than come to a complete stop. My family of 6 was coming down the stairs at a stop and the driver took off and then yelled at us that we should have been ready to exit sooner. We also saw him drive off before people were seated resulting in many people being thrown around the bus. Because of our long wait initially, we were leery about hopping off the bus anywhere but we ended up visiting Guinness. We again had to wait 45 minutes to be picked up. We ended up getting back on, riding a few stops more and decided to get off and finish the rest of our exploring by ourselves on foot. We have done these kinds of tours all over the world and this is by far the worst! Do not waste your time or money on this one!
Great way to see Dublin!! The bus stops are easy to find and right on time. The tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable.
I love the HoHo buses for the first day we arrive. It gives us a good overview of the city and let’s us get in and off as we please
The tour guides were friendly, informative and funny, and the bus takes you around to each of the highlights of the city and provides good information about them too. The only issue I had was that sometimes the busses would take up to 45 minutes to arrive at a stop when they were supposed to be every 15 minutes. That being said, it was a very busy Dublin weekend and it really didn't detract from the experience.
This tour takes you to all of the key places within Dublin while providing interesting, historical tidbits along the way! The ability to "hop on" and "hop off" when you want to spend more time at any given place is super convenient! We were also able to make plans to come back to specific locations at a later time - something that we may have missed had we not taken the tour. The guides were energetic and friendly and I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Dublin for the first time!
I always enjoy taking Hop on and off buses because it's a great way to get to know a city. Also enjoy the guide highlighting things along the way.
This is a great way to see the sights in Dublin. We got off at a few different spots. Would definitely recommend it
Had a brilliant trip I must thank Niamh in the Dublin Visitir Center on O'Connell St she was fantastic and she got us all set. The bus trip was great so many places to see and really good information...loved it
Great tour and the guides were awesome!!! We got to see alot of sites and were told some good stories
We have done the hop on hop off bus experience in 5 different cities. We love it because we can get a feel for each city and the highlights. This bus stopped more than any bus (33 times in less than a 10 mile route). The worse thing is that we could not understand the driver who was narrating our locations. He had a very heavy Irish accent. The volume on the bus was not high enough to hear over the traffic from being an open air vehicle. Normally, you can get headphones. If they were available, they were not offered. On a good note, it is always impressive to me how these drivers can navigate such a big bus into such tiny roads without hitting anything.
Lucky to get Andrew as the driver/guide om the blue tour around Dublin. He even sang for his passengers. Will never forget it. Thank you Andrew
We had a wonderful tour. Anne was our driver, and she was extremely well informed about the city and its history. She also sang Irish songs for us, which was terrific.
Great time, great information. Well worth the price.
Always recommend Hop on hop off tours to any city that you don't know. It's a great way to get to know the lie of the land and the key tourist offerings and provides regular transportation to your next destination. Good value
