We booked a Walkabout Wicklow in the Tourist Office expecting something awesome as it was advertised as Dublin´s No 1 Tour. We were told that we might have a different car from the one in the picture. That would not be a problem we thought. We were supposed to be in Suffolk street at 9.05. We were there early just in case... We waited and waited, there were other tours departing but our car and the tour guide were nowhere to be seen.Not a good start. So we walked up and down and suddenly saw a guy cleaning a grey van just round the corner, it was 9.15. At 9.25 a grey van arrived and out came a guy approaching us. He did not greet the crowd, so we asked him if it is him we should be going with. Yes, our names were on his list. Ok, we got into the van and he started talking. All of a sudden a man from behind asked the guide, Could you tell us your name? Ok, our guide´s name was Michal Byrne. Then there was another request from the back of the van - could you possibly play Irish music? That was a great idea, but unfortunately the van had the radio only. The speakers gave out a cracking sound, so it was difficult to hear what Mike was saying - and I must admit he probably gave us a lot of information as he was very talkative. Bad luck again. Though Mike tried to adjust the speakers it did not help much. The best part of the trip was Glendalough where Mike gave us the information about the history of the place but as we had already been there,we knew what to expect.All in all, the trip did not live up to our expectations.
