Ticket Deceit

There wasn't any big bus running yesterday I called the number given to me but no answer. I found out from the tourist office yesterday that the big bus wasn't working yesterday that it will start operating from today the 7th until the 10th of August so I need my refund back because you have sold a ticket to me for yesterday the 6th of August 2020

Great overview of the city, and perfect for older travelers or those who can't do walking tours. The app even shows restaurants/pubs near stops for 'detours'.

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.

Great way for a city over view. Used service during February 2020. Bus not heated. Very cold. Open top seems great for warm weather use.

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.

The driver was hard to hear over PA system. Otherwise it is like all other hope on hop off...good overview.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We were glad to hear you enjoyed the overview of the city we provided. In terms of the sound, the sound issues are caused by varying acoustics in the city. In future, if you have issues hearing the sound system I recommend asking the driver to adjust the sound. They would be more than happy to do so and this would resolve any issues due to poor sound. Many thanks again, All the best, Big Bus Tours Dublin Team

This is a great way to cover a lot of bases in a very short time. We were able to stop at two of our locations where we had booked tours and not have to pay for a cab. We simply got back on and did the same thing again. Book it, you won’t regret it!
