Used the bus on 2 different days and split the tour up. Both days we had 2 lovely drivers. I must say sorry to the lady on the first day as I didn't catch her name but today was a man called Greg. He was full of information all about Dublin and was so interesting to listen to.

I like how the driver personalized the tour around Dublin. Second time using them, and is worth every penny. Do be careful with your time, as they don't run into the evening.
