    I got to know about this experience from a friend that saw this bus around Dublin, I took my mum for a short holiday in Dublin and she loves tea so this tour seemed very fitting. Very organised, varied menu, fresh sandwiches and cakes, warm scones, tour guide was very informative and having to go around Dublin as an added bonus, would definitely recommend, something different :)

    This vintage tea tour was EVERYTHING positive that I'd heard & read about it. The crew was courteous, fast & helpful. The tour took us up & down the streets of Dublin, through the Phoenix Park & a few other notable places. Our male guide, (Dev is the only name I remember, sorry) was extremely delightful. His blend of good humor & vast knowledge for the city was refreshing and I left the tour feeling light & easy, ready to walk the streets for more sightseeing! The food was surprisingly wonderful, even the hot chocolate & apple juice tasted great. I would highly recommend this to all groups: couples, families with kids, girls outing, faith-based organizations, bromance, senior citizens & especially to a solo traveler such as myself!! GREAT GREAT TOUR indeed!!!

    This was AWESOME!! Truly a great afternoon tea tour through Dublin with great tidbits of information about the city! The tea was good, the food was good, the service was great! There were 2 birthdays on board with us and we all sang to them. I only wish we would've told them about our honeymoon so maybe we could've gotten an impromptu song too! We 100% would do this tour again on a trip to Dublin :)
