What people are saying about Leinster

Antonio was absolutely brilliant very energetic, entertaining, friendly and patience full of brilliant facts, would highly recommend the tour and definitely with Antonio. Had great recommendations for staying and visiting Dublin for after the tour. Definitely a long tour with a-lot of walking but informative great day. Would highly recommend.

We took two separate tours over two days. Both the drivers were amazing given the tight traffic situations. One of the drivers supplemented the prerecorded audio guide with his own take on the events and places we passed. He even sang a couple of songs and managed to get the passengers to sing along! Great fun.

A great way to get to know Dublin. We especially liked the buses with live tourguide drivers (not the recorded version). They were funny and informative and made for a very pleasant experience.

Great ride to see and learn about the city and it’s features.

Schöne Rundfahrt. Super witziger Busfahrer und guide
