Great bike tour. Our guide took us to lots of beautiful sites in the city and have great recommendations for places to visit or get food. Lots of breaks so you don't get that tired and really pretty views along the river. He had lots of interesting historical facts at each of our stops and had a good sense of humor.

This was one of my FAV tours! Collin was amazing and shared a lot of interesting facts about Ireland (and Dublin). I love tours which involve physical activity, so this tour was great for me. We were able to bike around the city in Dublin and see all the places we discussed during the tour!!

Laura was an amazing guide. It was just myself and my father with her, so it felt like a private tour of the city. She was extremely knowledgeable about all of the points of interest we stopped at. And even recommended a few other places to go check out on our own time.

This bike tour was a great way to visit so many places in 2.5 hours.Our guide Hugh was very knowledgeable, helpful ,friendly and answered all of our questions.Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys cycling and a bit of history.

Laura is a great guide, seeing the city by bike is something else1
