actually no choice much in Ireland operator but paddy wagon which is not worthy for the price.
1. crowded coach, uncomfortable seat.
2. the hi-light tourists would like to see like Dark edge. driver just drove pass and say not safe acutally he's too lazy to find the parking. there were just 4-5 cars there,no big bus or crowded at all when we arrived but he just passed not even a glance. most tourists were disappointed for this. unacceptable!
SO YOU SHOULD NOT USE DARK EDGE AS AVATAR FOR THIS 6-DAY TOUR, as it's the point i decided to pick this tour.
moreover the driver skip car-the ridge-rack something, we cant even see from long distance, just disappear from program...
Family of six (three seniors and three teenagers). Had the best time. Bus driver knew everything and let us know the inside info. Saw the entire ring of the island and saw everything we really wanted to see. Food great, accommodations great, scenery great. Managed to go 5 out of 6 days without rain. Would definitely go on this trip again.
The tour was great overall!! However, beware viator has misleading information. We were not able to walk the rope bridge in the north from game of thrones. If you check the official paddy wagons website, you will get a much better itinerary. I went on the backpackers tour, the hostels were nothing to brag about. I recommend the Bed and Breakfast tour. Rori was our tour guide and he was amazing!! I would recommend this tour to anyone!
The tour covered all the attractions I wanted to see. I wish we could spend more time at certain locations. Be sure to check the actual vendor's website instead of Viator. I was sad to find out that the listing on Viator was not 100 accurate. Our guide said the company had asked Viator to update their listing, but it was never done. I was not the only disappointed one. Our guide also made adjustments depending on weather.
Truly stress-free. Everyday is PACKED with exciting things to do as well as must see item that were on my list. I was skeptical at first since I was traveling alone but there was a lot of group interactions and dinners. Our tour guide, Ruairi was a perfect man for the job,hysterical and a heart of gold.
This trip was one of the most amazing I have ever been on. Paddywagon did a great job of giving you a display of the wonders Ireland has to offer. I had Rory as a tour guide he does this tour often and he gave incredible recommendation at each stop and answered any question you had. I booked this trip for myself not wanting to be stressed with planning and it was exactly what I wanted. It's not necessarily designed to be catered towards younger people, though I will say it works out best for a younger 18-28 year-old crowd.
If I could give this tour more stars, I would! Freddie aka Shakira aka Jingle was a blast - he kept us on track and he kept us awake and interested. We had the best time and got to see so much of the country.
I'll be honest and say that at first when I bought the tour I wasn't entirely sure I made the right decision for my husband and I. Huge green bus with a leprechaun on it? Same group of people every day? How will it work to be in a new place every night? None of these were a problem! If you're organized in your packing, being in a new place isn't difficult at all!
Word to the wise - the accommodations the first night in Belfast were not the most enjoyable, but immediately got progressively better the rest of the trip we chose the BNB option.
We took this tour in October 2017. The weather wasn't ideal, but wasn't terrible. I think this was a great time to tour Ireland as the tourist season was over and although there were still visitors I can imagine there would be hundreds more during the season. We had Freddy as our driver for Paddy Wagon tours. He was great! Very funny, very informative, very attentive to the needs of the group. He made the tour itself so much better. He helped us all help and look after each other. We had a great group. There were six of us in my party with one in a wheelchair due to an accident before our trip. He was very helpful with getting her in and out of places. The tour of Ireland itself was wonderful. Paddy Wagon took us all over the island and we saw many things we would not have thought to see on our own. The bus was comfortable. We were fortunate to have a new smaller bus that we could plug in to keep our devices charged and had wifi to stay connected to home and family. The B and B's were sufficient. All personnel at each place were very helpful and friendly. My only complaint would be Paddy Wagon should take the Bontanic Apts. in Belfast off their list of places to stay. The people there were super. We couldn't have asked for nicer, helpful staff. But the place itself is very old, dated, dirty, too many stairs. We thought we were staying at the Titanic Apts. in Belfast. Not sure what they are like as we did not get to stay there. The rest of the B and B's were clean and comfortable. Shout out to Seemus in Deery! He was super with our group! This tour is well worth taking. We loved it, we were very happy with our group. And we loved having Freddy as our driver!!
