Paddywagon Tours?

Just wondering if they are any good. Decided to do some day tours instead of trying to spend nights in so many places and just go from main cities since i'm relying on public transport :) I've heard Paddywagon attracts younger crowds and can be a bit rambunctious...Is that true? Any advice would be great!

Rambunctious isn't the right word by a long way. True I say you need to be under 50 in mind if not body because they are a little light hearted in their approach. I have never taken their tours nut have encountered people on them and reports are generally good. There are many good tours running from key places and some are better than others but generalising for many different locations would be the wrong way of getting the better options.

Have you read any of the Paddywagon tour reviews? While I for one, would not choose them as my tour company of choice, a very large percentage of their clients (who have posted reviews) either thought the company was 'Excellent' or 'Very Good'

Additionally approx 10% thought they were terrible. But that 10% were probably a mix of geriatrics, whingers and ne'er do wells (my category!).

Here is a link to the reviews:

All age groups were represented on the 2 day tours I took with them about 2 years ago, including seniors (me being one of them) and they were fine, nothing rambunctious. I did hear that their longer tours cater to a younger crowd because they offer hostel stays

I go on the Paddywagon tour of Wicklow a couple of times a year as I dont drive so it is ideal for me if I want to go off taking photos.The trip down to Glendalough and Avoca a great way to spend a day old I maybe geriatiac I am not whinger maybe but it is well worth the few bob to see around Wicklow and other areas enjoy a nice afternoon on a Wicklow beack with a fish and chip lunch.
