Traveler Tips


  • "The driver(s) do not stop at each individual stop, so advance notice will need to be given." See review
  • "This activity is good idea to make easy the distance between all the tourist attractions, but it isn't the best choice if you want to know the highlights of the city and enjoy the journey, it's almost impossible." See review
  • "Make sure you ask the driver if a bus is coming back to a stop as we got stuck up North at the cemetery and had to cab it to the next stop down (which we found out was closed" See review

It was a great, easy tour. Perfect for solo travel. I only wish I'd had more time to enjoy to hop on and off a bit more to have fully enjoyed it!

My family and I waited...
Sharon_G

My family and I waited for over an hour and 1/2 at a designated stop in Dublin Ireland and the bus never came. Many other buses passed us but not ours. Could not contact anyone that day because phone number went to busy signal. Asking for full refund and still have not received it. Poor business sense. I feel it’s all a scam. Stopped payment on my credit card. Horrible experience would not recommend this tour company!

Very few buses, waited almost an hour to start our tour

We waited to join the tour for almost an hour. Meanwhile, every other Hop On Hop Off bus company had numerous buses going around and around. Don't do the (RED) City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off. Make sure you are on the GREEN OR YELLOW company Hop on Hop off tours. They are much more frequent and you will actually be able to take advantage of the hop on hop off feature.

Know which vendor is working the day of your visit

The bus was one of at least 3 hop on hop off options. This one was not operational due to the Pride celebration. The other two I tired to get on were operational so it was confusing there was more than one hop on/off options and why this was not working

Disappointment

Never got on the bus. Every time we found a bus stop, we waited, and it was the wrong sightseeing bus. In the several hours, 6 to be exact, we never saw a bus that we paid for. It was a waste of money.

Only 1 bus? Terrible
Karyn_W
, Jun 2022
Use Big Bus instead. Normally I would use this bus but in Dublin only 1 bus runs every 45 minutes so you spend half your time waiting. I was very disappointed since our service in London was great. For a family of 5 with multiple days what a disappointment.

Use Big Bus Tour Instead

I would not recommend using City Sightseeing bus because it only stops every hour whereas Big Bus tour stops every 20 minutes.

Terrible experience

We bought tickets for this bus tour prior to our trip to Dublin however we did not see any of these buses during our full stay. Due to this, we had to buy tickets from a different bus company. I do not recommend the city sightseeing bus tour - buy your tour with a different company.

Don’t use this company
Margaret_W
, Jun 2022
This is a scam. In 48 hours we were able to take 1 trip. Not exactly Hop on hop off. With only 2 buses in operation, it was an expected 90 minutes wait for the next bus. We never did see another opportunity to Hop back on. We went to the office at College Green and they had no idea how to help us. Or even any details of the operation. DO NOT USE THIS SIGHTSEEING SERVICE! Even the tourist info office knew they were an unreliable ompany. There are other providers and they seem to know what they are doing.

A good tour!
Taylor_R
, Jun 2022
This is a good way to not only sightsee, but to also familiarize yourself with the city! I'm staying in Dublin for a few weeks, so this tour helped me get to know the city a little better. The tour does operate on just a recorded track, though I wish there was an actual guide to add some interaction. Great overall!

The bus never showed up. My daughter & I waited for 2 hours-nothing! The other bus companies said this company has had issues & not reliable. I would not use this service. We ended up using the green bus company- wonderful

Wasted time
Kenneth_J
, May 2022
Arrived at city center around 10:25 am. Much confusion about WHICH hop on hop off to use! There were at least 3 different companies! Waited for our bus for 1 hour wasting our sightseeing time. Finally went to a nearby sales office and bought another ticket for a tour bus for $60 additional so that we could get on our way! Finally saw your bus another 25 minutes later! We were told there were only 2 of your busses operating on that day- WAY too much waiting with no schedule!

Non existent

Unfortunately I cannot explain our most memorable part as there was not memories made as the buses were nowhere to be seen throughout our day. We waiting at our first stop which felt like forever so we decided to walk the red route, even though we walked for nearly 2 hours from stop to stop we still did not see one bus. The service provided was not efficient or good, the other companies were coming every 20 mins which made it very frustrating, I wouldn’t recommend city sightseeing to anyone in Dublin.

For some reason the buses were unavailable and we will be requesting a refund. I had to quickly get another bus ticket so that we would not be late for a ticketed tour. I have used them in other cities with no problems. First time they didn’t come through.
