“Well worth doing !”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

I'm from Limerick and I learned so much on this tour. The bus driver/tour guide is genuinely interested in Limerick and his love for the city really comes across. Great value for money and my kids loved it !

“Unsung heroes”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

As with any city, a bus tour is a great way of getting your bearings and happily the driver adds a lot of value and enjoyment to the experience, good value and time well spent.

“Delightful driver made our day”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Tour good for all weather, though if you are planning to go on the top of the bus I would recommend a jumper (and a hair band if you have long hair). The driver is very friendly and offers a very interesting and up to date guide of the city. There are fantastic views and photo opportunities on the tour and the driver stops for a few minutes to allow you to take pictures of King Johns Castle, the Shannnon river, the Treaty Stone etc...

“Very knowledgable driver - great introduction to Limerick”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

This is a driver guided tour, so the driver provides a commentary rather than a recording.
It makes the commentary all the more current and interesting.
If you are thinking of spending a few days in Limerick, this is a well spent hour.

“Pretty Good”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

Family price for 4 was 24 Euro. Trip was right on schedule. Lasted 60 minutes as scheduled. Driver was nice. Information was okay which is why I've rated only as VG. Seemed to have a lot of redundancy. Look, Shannon river on the right...now look, Shannon river on the left. Seems like a lot more tid bits of facts would be better. We did a walking tour just prior to this bus trip and he had more information in 20 minutes then we had the whole bus trip. Otherwise, fun experience for the family! BTW, our hotel offers a discount if we show the key but we forgot and the driver didn't ask. Could have saved about 10 Euro.
