Value for money and best use of 8 hrs

This is a great trip to experience the best of wicklow in a day. Wicklow is vast and its beauty is endless. But this trip covers the major highlights. I have taken the trip couple of times . Guides are also very nice and they share a lot of history and relevant information about the place which you generally miss when you drive on your own.

I’ve done a few of these kinds of excursions to Wicklow and this one was my least favorite. It was a lot more facts and nature-focused than the others, which were more charming and about stories. I would also strongly recommend that any guide taking people to Glendalough brush up on religious history, not rely on platitudes about religion.

Our guides try give a personal touch to our tours and cover so much in such a short time that they cant possibly cover everyone's interests. However i will send your remarks onto our guides and thank you,

We had about 1 1/2 hours to tour the lovely Powerscourt Gardens. This was Sufficient. Robert did an excellent job guiding us through the Wicklow mountains, pointing out scenery and giving us Irish history. He also guided us through the ancient monastic ruins of Glendalough. He even dropped us off at the Dart station, so we would get back to our cruise ship in time, saving us a 20 minute walk. A truly enjoyable day!

This was a lovely tour! The garden was beautiful and so was Glendalough. Decent amount of time at each of the stops and our guide was very knowledgeable. The small group experience is definitely a plus.

Worth it
Alessio_P

Very experience, worth the price and the time. You can reach places you won’t visit otherwise, and the guide Robert is a good company, friendly and fun. Everything pretty yay, the only meh maybe the lunch restaurant, as although it is convenient to keep the travellers all in one place, you don’t have more choice that the kind of kitchen they do. Glendalough and Powers Court very very pretty, Wicklow makes you see the greatness of the Green Nature this Island can offer - and maybe also few movie set

Showed up at starting point.mGave my name; I Was told my wife and I were not on the list of participants. I was told that I could not take tour and was turned away. Very disappointed with Viagor and do not plan to use your tours again even though I plan to visit Venice and Rome in February 2023.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Hi Elliot, I'm very sorry that you missed your tour. I checked with our guides on that day as your name was on our list. They said that no one asked them and they didn't refuse anyone. So I can only imagine that you asked a different tour guide on the morning from another tour company. Our Phone number is on all the booking tickets, you should have simply rang me. Anyway I'm really sorry that you missed the tour.

Nice tour, but uncomfortable seat
Andrea_A
, Jul 2022
Our guide Johnny was really good, giving lots of information and very entertaining. We saw a lot of the countryside in these approx. 8 hours. The reason why I can't give 5 stars is the back seat row - where I had to sit, away from my niece, because we were the last ones to to join the group. I am a small, petit person, but the back seat row for 4 persons is so narrow - it was very uncoformtable for me to sit there for several hours! They (Viator) should not fill every seat on a tour, when these seats are so narrow. Besides, I could only get out from my seat (left side window) after the person next to me stood up. And I paid the same price as everybody else ... :(

Hi Andrea, Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We do use small minibuses to navigate the small roads we travel. We also do our best to have those traveling together siting together. This is very unusual
