  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    This trip was great! Maurice was a knowledgeable and humorous guide along with Warren who drove us safely. I would highly recommend this trip! Kilkenny is a very nice small city, the Wicklow mountains and the 2 hours walking around the lakes at Glendalough was a wonderful experience. The best part was the visit to the sheep farm!

    Our day trip was wonderful. We had only ten in our group and enjoyed walking around Glendalough and Kilkenny at our own pace. The scenery was beautiful, along winding roads through the mountains and sheep country. Richard was a lovely guide, very funny and knowledgeable of the area. We recommend booking a tour with HilltopTreks.

    The four days tour is well complete but guides vary greatly in Quality. Quigg was absolutely excellent for the day to the Cliff of Moher and Galvay , others from others days were Closer to organisers and not great guides although they made some efforts,they were missing context and a little short on explaning their trips. The day in Dublin is conceived as a DIY and was even missing an organiser, so not Bad but could certainly do better.....

    Paddy our tour guide was very good. He is informative and hospitible.

    I would have liked more time in the castle to explore during our free time after the train ride. Instead of 35 minutes ,perhaps an hour will be better . It was a Excell tour and I recommend it!

    Nevin was so great! Our group of 6 was in Kilkenny for the first time for a couple of days and wanted a short and simple run-down of the city. Perfect length of tour. Nevin also included magic tricks and so many interesting facts I never knew!! Would highly recommend!

    My husband and I had such a great time at the Irish Coffee tasting that we asked to add on the Whiskey tasting. Highly recommend both! JD is a fantastic host and knows a lot about coffee, whiskey and Kyteler's. Will definitely stop by again the next time we are in Kilkenny.

    I wanted to take a moment to thank John Britton for the wonderful tour you provided to the Class of 1973 on our 50th anniversary stay in Kilkenny. Your enthusiasm was evident but it was great to work with you to showcase the city that you love. Your knowledge and expertise made the city tour truly special. We were so lucky with the weather and the change in plans at the beginning were hardly noticed. I especially enjoyed the visit to the Castle and ending at the Smithwick’s experience was wonderful. It was a highlight of the trip for me.

    Thanks again for everything! I will let me friend and colleagues know of your guiding and hope to have the opportunity to visit with you again in the future.

    One of the best tours I have ever taken. Full of dark history and chilling stories. The old part of the city which I never would have known. This is must when you arrive in Kilkenny. We definitely got the chills on this scary tour

    The only word to describe this tour was incredible. Our guide, Marcus, was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and attentive. He went above and beyond to make our trip unforgettable. There were only 4 of us on the tour also so it was very intimate. We were truly surprised at the beauty of Southwest Ireland. Days 3 and 4 at Slea Head and the Ring of Kerry were simply amazing. It helped that we had very pretty and sunny weather as well. This was easily one of the best trips we have ever taken. Thank you Marcus and thank you Rabbie’s!

    We had a blast with our knight for the day! The kids thought it was so cool to walk around with a knight AND get to hold some of his armor and swords!! (Blunted for safety :). I would highly recommend for anyone looking for some history with a laugh and some fun.
