We booked this tour for our first day in Dublin. It was lighthearted fun with a bit of history thrown into the mix. The driver was funny and upbeat. The jokes were a little corny. We enjoyed taking our vehicle in the water and trolling around a bit too. It was very cold and windy the day we went. I'd advise to bring a blanket and dress warmly which we did not. I think this tour is best for families with small children.

Reading some of the negative comments, I was actually laughing to myself... people need to lighten up!!!!!

This tour was fun and interesting, not too many 'facts' or info thrown in, but just enough to make you go "oh wow I didn't know that" paddy our tour guide pointed out the best places to eat, drink, told us stories about old Dublin, how the city came about, facts about different buildings etc.. but it wasn't too much to take in or boring, just right! If you're looking for a thorough tour with loads of history etc then choose another tour and don't be one of the boring people in the complaints section! If you're after light hearted fun and few interested facts and a nice little drive around Dublin then book on!

Probably more suited to children however I'm 21 and went with 3 of my friends and we had a fun time! €20 maybe a little expensive but isn't everything in Dublin!

Driver was great with the kids on board, so don't quite understand some of the negative reviews?? Maybe your kids need to grow some.. driver was letting the kids "drive" the boat around the dock area and being really interactive with them, it was great:)

Thanks paddy

This was a fun tour for our family. The tour guide was very funny, and he tries to bring the group together. We ride through the city in the duck. Some can wear Viking hats if you like. Then you go troll around the water a little. The start and end location is very convenient in the city center sites.

This is an informal tour of Dublin dressed as vikings roaring at strangers. You will not be disappointed and Kids can also enjoy. Staff were hilarious and friendly and was a great experience and would definitely recommend to others.
