Fantastic Tour

Johnny was the best tour guide and driver. We had our three young kids with us and he involved them in the tour every step of the way. This trip is truly for all ages! The horseback ride was great… and the scenery of Ireland is breathtakingly beautiful. From the lunch at Poppy’s to the wonderful story-telling by your guide, this is a perfect day in the Irish Countryside.

Day Trip from Dublin to Wicklow, Glendalough

Had a wonderful experience with HilltopTreks going to Wicklow park. Our tour guide Darragh was an absolute pleasure. Would definitely book again in the future.

5 Star Review

Our best day in Ireland…

First, I must confess I did not like the city of Dublin–too nondescript and dull for me; however, I did like what I saw of the Irish countryside and that is because of Hilltoptreks. The second thing you might note is that I rarely give five-star reviews so make of my review what you may.

I especially wanted one that included the gardens and I was not disappointed.
