“Ancient and Modern History crossed with Stand up comedy and D-Day landings!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

It's Dublin Jim, but not as we know it!

The Viking Splash tour is a well put together and rehearsed mix of a historical tour and stand up comedy driven by the driver, whilst intermingled with Viking helmets, roaring at the locals and, eventually, taking to the water.

To me it shows the very best of the Irish character, a warm, witty and self deprecating mix thats sure to leave you laughing or gobsmacked - worth taking a pullover or coat as it can get a little cool when you take to the water

“Unexpected good fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

I wold never put the Viking Splash Tour on a must-do list for Dublin. There are far more important thigns to see and do in Dublin.

But I equally wouldn't discourage people from going because the tour is surprisinglty good fun. The tour itself is simple: you drive around the city in a WW2 amphibous craft, drive into the Grand Canal basin and then drive back to where you started. Along the way the guides do a good job of pointing out buildings of importance, but the piece de resistance is the way that the guide watches for unsuspecting people walking along the street, and then gets the whole tour boat to shout at them a la invading Vikings. The reaction of the folks on the streets just gets everybody into raptures of laughter... It all makes for a quite enjoyable experience.
