“Shame about the bus!”
Review of Red Viking Tour

Red Viking Tour
Ranked #9 of 14 Tours in Limerick
Type: Bus Tours, Tours
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We took this tour to learn about Limerick and we were not disappointed. The driver was very knowledgeable giving a live commentary as she drove around the city.
The tour last about 1 hour.
Our disappointment was the condition of the seating upstairs. At least 2 of the seats had the back out and these were lying on the actual seats, other seats were well worn and some had torn covers. The floor upstairs, even under the canopy, had dead leaves and rubbish. Not a particularly pleasant image to portray to tourists.

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 !

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.

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...

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.
