The tour guide was fabulous and fun and we had a beautiful day discovering the parts of Ireland we had booked to see. We would however have preferred less time in Kilkenny and more at the beautiful Monastic City in Glendalough. It would have been perfect to have had time to sit by the lake and eat lunch but the timescale didn't allow us to do that. Highlight of the day however was the sheep dog demonstration - that was amazing!
Aisling was amazing and so was kilkenny. The rover bus had bad internet and was a bit cramped though.

I would like to have more time in Glendalough) It's such an amazing place)
The experience was great, just an ambitious schedule for a single day - I would have enjoyed more time at Kilkenny and Glendalough especially.
Trip was not on a WildRover bus, no WIFI. Driver refused to let us exit middle of bus making me wish I was on Steve’s bus. Much quicker exit and entry although they too had no WIFI. Had a lot of difficulty hearing Cathy/Kathy. She consistently started talking before the whole group stopped, turned to what she was talking about, so couldn’t hear her at all. Didn’t feel she added anything fun or exciting, once again making me wish I was on Steve’s bus. She didn’t seem suited to the job but that’s just a comparison with other tour guides we had. The tour itself was well organized and we really enjoyed the sheepdog demonstration thinking we would hate it. Good pace, mix of activities. So much of these tours is about the guide. We would not book another based on our experience even though Wild Rovers was recommended to us by a fellow Canadian as the best company to go with.
The stops were all very good, as was the informative narration by Kathy. The price also was very reasonable. But the tour company really should provide guests with ear phones—it was very difficult to hear Kathy’s soft voice outside. Also, it should be stated that the tour does not drop you off where you boarded—we boarded at Jury’s Inn, which was a 25-minute walk from our hotel; but were dropped off at a location that was almost an hour’s walk to our hotel. This led to a very tiring finish to a long day.

Cette activité exclusivement commentée et guidée en anglais permet de sortir de Dublin et de profiter pleinement de la campagne irlandaise. Visite du village médiéval de Kilkenny, dommage bien trop brève pour profiter de tous les monuments intéressants. Ensuite très agréable ballade à Glendahough dans les montagnes et autour des lacs : paysages magnifiques ! Au final, l'intervention du border collie auprès des moutons irlandais commentée par le berger faisait plus "attraction touristique" que véritable activité, même cela était bien fait. La guide Cathy connaissait son sujet sur le bout des doigts et dans le bus elle nous a parfaitement conté toute l'histoire irlandaise, malheureusement dans Kilkenny il y avait du bruit dans la rue et on n'entendait pas très bien. Le chauffeur Damien était parfait et attentionné. En résumé, tout de même, très bon rapport qualité prix pour une évasion bucolique sur le sol irlandais...
Great Tour! Loved the sites and baby lambs. Tour Guide was very awkward. Made the ride on the bus and some of the passengers very uncomfortable.
The tour was really engaging and our guide Aisling was lovely and very helpful. She even suggested places we could grab a bit to eat in each place we visited. The driver of the bus, Pete K, was super courteous and professional and a very good driver as he managed to handle some of the tighter turns of the Wicklow countryside with ease. Our ride was comfortable and the places we saw were really amazing. So worth it for the price!
I found Cathy to be very informative and interesting. Thank you

The time we spend at Kilkenny and Glendalough, was less than the time the flyer says. The flyer says 2 hours and 45 min at Kilkenny and we spent only 2 hours there, so I couldn't visit the castle what I would like. Also we spent less time in Glendalough than we expected.
The guide was so interesting and he had good humour!! As well the bus driver. Thanks so much for this experience.
I got to see a lot, but that means not too much time for each attraction. Highlight is of course the sheep farm. Our guide Ashling was funny and friendly and she is a fast walker, I like that

Aisling was a wonderful guide,knowledge about the history and very friendly.
The tour was very interesting and had a good time. Still is a long bus ride to Kilkenny. Cathy helped the long ride by telling some informative stories. I would recommend this tour.
I liked a trip a lot. The tour lady had a lot of informations, she was funny and she really know how to attract people. Maybe I had one suggestion how to improve the trip. Because of a lot of people are foreigners, it would be great to give them some leaflets, prospects about some stops in whole trip. Tour lady was trying to speak slowly and markedly, but for example me with just basic english would be very helpful these prospects.
Lovely bus tour! People are so friendly and acknowledge. I would have loved to spend more than 10 minutes in Wicklow mountain but I needed a 36 hours day! Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed our visit. Kilkenny is really nice, but I think it would be better if there was an optional guided tour of the city, the Wicklow mountains and Glendalough are absolutely stunning. I've like also the visit to the sheep farm, but I am concerned about the fact that they let you take pictures with the lambs. For how adorable it is I think it's really stressful for the lamb to be separated from its mother. Our guide was Anthony, he was really chatty, maybe too much, but he shared with us a lot of interest ing and personal fact that made the experience even more accessible.
The time we got in the 2 cities was less as the time what was mentioned in the brochure of the tour.
Anthony and Sydney were great! Well planned out tour, right on time, seamless. The farm and the lambs are an added bonus will definitely use you guys again next time. Thanks a bunch!
Awesome tour guide!! Great scenery and a lovely day all together

Ayslijng the guide was pretty nice, but I the tour would be 2 more hours longer, cause the time in Kilkenny isn’t enough.
The tour was wonderful and I would definitely recommend it. All the places we visited were very beautiful. Paulo was a very good driver and Richard a very good guide with knowledge of the history of the places we visited offering us many interesting information, with a very good sense of humor. I would like some more time in some places but, as Richard kept saying, there is never enough time for only one day's visit. Nevertheless, we managed to see as many as possible. Thank you both for the lovely day!
