Amazing team of drivers!! Funny, informative, caring and helpful. I am visually impaired and all the drivers we met in the three days with this company were supportive and understanding, giving me extra time to go upstairs and to come down the stairs so that I could enjoy the fresh air of my home town while my partner enjoyed the views. Outstanding and would highly recommend to anyone travelling with a disability. Thank you especially to Martin and Greg.

The driver was fantastic. His commentary was so interesting and kept our attention for the whole tour

Kate was a fantastic tour guide and provided great historical details about Dublin and Ireland.
