We attempted to book this tour 3 times online and were told the server was down. I then emailed them and they said there was room on the tour so they would reserve 2 places for us so turn up 30 mins before tour and pay then.
We arrived at designated meeting spot to be told the tour was cancelled! Really unprofessional! We have done bike tours in buenos aires, paris, barcelona, edinburgh and all were run professionally not this one.

We took the tour on Saturday September 17th. Brian was our guide and made the tour interesting, funny and great fun; he was full of character and very knowledgable. This tour is highly reccommended and is a fantastic way to see the city. The bikes are all in good condition, safety equipment provided, and conducted at a leisurely pace....with a nice stop half way through for a pint!

Our group of six arranged for a private tour led by Brian. We met up at Isaac hostel and then walked over to the garage/locker to get fitted w bikes, helmets and safety vests. The 3-speed bikes were in great condition and easy to ride. Brian took us on a circular route through many areas including Connell St., Temple Bar, Dublin Castle, st Patrick's, Portobello, and the Grand Canal area before crossing over the Beckett bridge back to their garage.

We all enjoyed the trip immensely. Having done bike trips in several countries we were very impressed. Brian was very engaging and had a good story to tell at many places on the route. Before the ride, some of us were a bit concerned about the prospects of riding with all those big buses driving around. But Brian took us on bake paths/lanes and areas with minimal traffic

I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to see many sites in Dublin in a few hours and not sit on a bus!!

Loved my time on the tour. Personable, and so informed. Authentic moments in a new town... So impressed with the research, the rich stories that went into this.
