Yesterday we did the new Perseverance Bus Tour and we really enjoyed this tour. It was not like a typical bus tour one already did in several cities. It was something special that we won't forget!

We did the Perseverance Tour today, from start to finish it was throughly enjoyed. The actors were absolutely amazing, we felt like we were actually back in time and living it, the attention to detail on the bus was unbelievable, book this tour, you won't be disappointed!

A very very cold nite greeted us as we embarked on the bus to the Haunted Wicklow mountains! The guide was great, to be fair he put the fear into us all! very knowledgable and interesting.. A great nite and a great view of Dublin.. we were suitably scared!! The back to the Brazen head for a couple of pints... More

If I could give less than one star, I would. We booked this tour weeks in advance, and even called ahead the day of to confirm our booking. First off, the meeting location id not given to you as an address, but two stores. The taxi driver dropped us at the wrong location and we had no way of knowing... More

John guided our small group and was extremely informative and personable. The tour had a few stops and detailed history to go. with each. It was absolutely great to actually go behind a locked gate and walk around after hearing the history that comes with it. Highly recommend!

I wrote a long review on this before and got a message saying it had been delighted. Very dodgy that a company is getting it's bad reviews removed from Trip Advisor. Incompetent staff. The tour didn't show up to collect us, had to ask to speak to several different people before I got anyone on the phone who could explain... More

I attended the Hell Fire Club tour on December 30, led by Mark. After a great meal at the haunted and ancient Brazen Head Pub, we met the guide outside and were led to a mini bus. Once everyone was on board, we were off to the Wicklow Hills with some great storytelling as we drove through Dublin. The stories... More

Our tour guide was the walking cliché of an Irishmen - he was a fabulous storyteller, an impressive singer, and his sense of humour was marvellous. The bus took us from stop to stop, and we got stories both on the road and at the locations. It wont hurt to bring a torch for the off-bus walks. And for those... More

Really enjoyed this tour, where the tour guides (Two young Actors) were dressed in 1916 Volunteer uniforms and acted out the week of the 1916 Rising in the first person, from their perspective. Very informative with the odd Dublin wit thrown in, sites visited included Dublin Castle, GPO with a short walk to show the escape route from the GPO... More

I took this tour because I wanted some good ghost stories and to see the view of Dublin from the mountains. The tour was good but I wouldn't consider it scary. Also, the hike up to the Hellfire Club is somewhat strenuous (mostly because you're trying to keep up with the tour guide and not slip) but once you get... More
