A 45 minute tour to the East and West explaining the city's history and some interesting facts and at around €14 fairly good value. Take a sedate trip down the river and interact with Richard the guide who will explain a lot about Dublin's history you should know about.

Thanks to Richard and Paul for an informative and friendly trip along the river. We had also taken the hop on/hop off tour, but this was an opportunity to see the city from a different aspect and through a different pair of eyes. Really enjoyed the tour, thank you.

The guide was very witty and informative and he offered a different perspective to Dublin that you wouldn't see from the bus or walking around. It was a lovely autumn day when we went and even got to see a seal.

The guide was very funny and informative. He interacted with the passengers in a nice and friendly way. Some of us were Danish and others German. He was very good at giving us- just a bit - of our own nations effect on the things we saw. Very nice. My classmates and I liked it very much

A last minute decision before we flew back to England saw us boarding the boat for this 45-min tour. We were introduced to our driver Paul and guide Richard who from the outset were friendly, approachable and even with the small group on the boat made every effort to ensure everyone was having a great time. The tour was, relaxing,... More
