Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our tour with Adrian was outstanding! We had a wonderful trip two days before to the Cliffs of Moher, on which there was a driver and narrator. Adrian did everything himself on this trip! Both the narrating and the driving…expertly. We leaned a lot about each location and left feeling like we were satisfied with our time there. Adrian’s local knowledge made all the difference and we won’t forget this! Our trip was one of those once in a lifetime events. It was made better, no doubt, by this tour. Highly recommended!

I was a bit worried about the length of this tour traveling with my family at first but it was so great!
The bus was comfortable and smooth ride. Jonathan was our guide and driver. Knowledgeable about every stop and places to shop etc
Each stop was perfect amount of time to visit! I'd definitely recommend this tour for anyone wanting to visit castle and get some history about Ireland. Jonathan even sang on the way back to Dublin!

What an amazing day spent with Adrian! We had the perfect combination of informative talk and quiet during the ride to our different stops. We learned so much about Ireland and its history with loads of laughs thrown in.

Our favorite was the Rock of Cashel. Stunning scenery and just a perfect mist to add to the feeling.

It was our favorite day in lovely Ireland and we know Adrian had a lot to do with it.

Johnathan was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide with great driving skills especially in a huge coach around those winding narrow roads. The group size is quite large but doesn't really effect anything. Everything was on time, coach was clean and there was plenty of stops and time for food, toilets and sight seeing. Highly recommend.

Our tour guide, Jonathan, was amazing! This trip was worth every penny. Very well organized. Some tours do not give adequate times at stops, this one did not disappoint. Our guide gave great recommendations.

We took the day trip to the cliffs of Moher.

Where to begin.

In order of severity:

1.) Our guided tour did not have a tour guide. I'm not joking.

2.) The bus did not have wifi, nor charging ports as advertised. The bus seats were tighter than any plane I've been on, despite being told we'd be on a deluxe bus. Picture of the leg space attached. I'm 6' for reference.

3.) The few places in Doolin avaliable for food had no idea 40+ people were coming at once. Our driver acknowledged he had never been to Doolin, and he didn't know where to eat either.

4.) We never even stopped in the Burren

5.) A head check/roll call was never performed. 4 people were left behind in Gallway. To be fair they were late, but having a tour guide would have probably prevented the issue in the first place.

On the plus side, our driver was a very safe driver, and a great guy to chat with. The cliffs, and Gallway are absolutely worth visiting, but not through this company.

We apologize for the multiple issues you encountered during your tour to the Cliffs of Moher. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our tours are conducted with the driver serving as both the guide and driver, utilizing a microphone for commentary throughout the journey. However, your experience does not reflect the high standards we aim to uphold, and we sincerely regret any inconvenience caused. We appreciate your feedback regarding the bus amenities and the coordination at food stops and during head counts. We will investigate these issues internally to prevent recurrence. We apologize again and appreciate your understanding. If you have further concerns or wish to discuss this matter, please contact us at info@daytours.ie.

My husband and I, along with my 84 year-old mother-in-law arrived the morning of 5/27 for our tour. When the bus driver took one look at my mother-in-law using a walker to board the bus, he told me she could not come on the tour because we would hold the other passengers up. i told him that we checked with the tour months beforehand to make sure her mobility impairment could be accommodated. The driver insisted she could not do it and did not let us board the board or offer us a refund. He also did not provide us with an office to contact for another tour. He told me "Maybe you can go back to the meeting point and find someone else going to Wicklow and that would be better for her". I have emailed the company for a response and to seek a refund but have not heard back. Terrible experience for our very first time in Dublin! Would not recommend if you or your family have a mild mobility issue.

We're deeply sorry for the distressing experience you had with our tour. Your mother-in-law's comfort and safety should have been our top priority, and we apologize for the lack of accommodation and communication from our driver. This falls far below the standards we strive to uphold. We're investigating this matter internally to ensure it doesn't happen again. Regarding your refund request, we'll expedite the process and ensure you receive a response promptly, please make sure you have emailed us at info@daytours.ie. We apologize once again for the inconvenience and disappointment caused.
