We had a choice between the RED Big Bus Hop-on-Hop-off sightseeing tour and the Green Dublin Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus Tour, boy did we make a MISTAKE picking Red over the Green. We walked from the train station in Pearce St Dublin to the nearest stop number 4, waited 15-20, minutes and when the first bus arrived, we were informed that it was not in service but another bus would be along shortly, another 20 minutes and finally a bus arrived BUT it could only take us to stop 6, which was OK as we wanted to see the “Little Museum of Dublin”. After the great 1 hour tour we went back to stop 6 to wait for another Big Bus, waited about 30 minutes, was also using the so called live tracking, when another bus arrived, informed by the driver that his bus had been allocated for a private tour and was not able to pick us and the other people waiting, again stating that another bus would be alone shortly, another 30+ minutes before we finally got on the bus and proceeded back to stop 1 (we could not take the chance of waiting for another bus on getting off at the other stops) as they state 10-20 minutes waiting time is an absolute incorrect statement, I will NEVER travel on the Big Bus Hop On Hop Off again, especially if there is an alternative Hop on Hop off available. SHOULD HAVE BOOKED THE GREEN DUBLIN BUS, we often saw them around Dublin and I believe that it is owned by the government, FAR SUPERIOR.

Live guide makes this hop on and off bus tour stand out from the rest. Gerry was great. We got poetry and singing as well as all the usual information. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Bus clean and comfy.

We took a ride on Jerry's bus and so happy that we did. We have done hop on- hop off tours in other cities and we always intend to stay for the whole loop but never do. This trip Jerry kept our attention so much that we didn't want to get off. We took it back to where we started and he was taking a break or we might have ridden around again. We truly enjoyed ever minute of the hour and a half on the bus in Dublin. Thanks Jerry for making it so memorable.
