It was nice
It was fun and informative, the reason it received a lower rating is because there were audio problems, the sound would go out when a bump was hit. Also it was a bugger of a time finding the office to get my ticket validated before getting on the bus. If the driver could just scan my phone that would be much more preferable.

Poor service and poor customer service
Sep 2021 • Solo
Expected buses to run once an hour, had to wait 2 hours for a bus.
Also phone the customer service to ask why, and they couldn't care less.

Not a good company for tourists
Aug 2021 • Couples
This bus has double the amount of waiting time that other companies offer.
Bus is late to the schedule. I do not recommend since this bus comes every hour (hopefully) in comparison with others which do come every 30 min.
A waste of time specifically since getting off in one stop you will make you wait for ever to keep going.
Customer service is a joke and no help at all.
Do not purchase tickets from this company

Extraordinary Kindness
Jul 2021 • Family
Better late than never as they say. About 6 years ago we missed our bus, (the last bus it turned out) to Camac Valley caravan park from where we (me, my wife & 2 young kids) were in Dublin Centre after a great day out. This guy from City Sightseeing Tours pulled up nearby in his bus, so we asked him for advice about getting back. Hop on he says, I’m headed in that general direction, I’ll take a detour and drop you off. This guy had finished his shift as well so was very kind and helpful to us when we needed assistance. I asked him for his name on a card and said I’d give him a shout out on trip advisor but mislaid the card. Well, I’ve just found it and I’d like to say a massive Thankyou to Eoin for being an absolute gentleman, hope your still with city sightseeing, hope they are treating you well and hope you see this post. It gave us another great wee memory of our holiday in Dublin:)

The tour audio was quite funny and informative. The bus gave us a pretty good understanding of the layout of Dublin and the stops were all great. I recommend this ride.

Excellent service. I recommend if you, like my family didn't have lots of days to explore the city. Individual ear-plugs and local history.

Gerad (Ger) was our driver and provided amusing anecdotal Dublin history infused with his charming humor at every turn. Never a dull moment. This is a great way to get the lay of the land if it's your first time here and will help you to plan a more efficient route if you're going at it on your own.
