Could be improved.
BETTY_D, Sep 2023
Too much about Norman's and Young Irelanders and almost nothing about Vikings. Would have liked to hear about their traditions, family life, housing when they finally settled. Etc.

Great overview of the Viking Triangle with an animated guide with interesting storytelling. Highly recommend.
The guide made the tour excellent!

Very interesting tour. The highlight was the tour guide! I think her name is Cliona? I really can’t recall now but she was excellent! Fantastic storyteller. Great humour. Loved every minute!
Wrong meeting place on ticket
Nicole_P, Sep 2023
Ticket and details say to meet at the mall. No one was there and no one responded to my message. Turns out they don't meet at the mall, but that differing piece of info was found in one spot prior to purchase. They need to fix this, we were screwed out of our walking tour.
Loved the history lesson 😍
Dianne_H, Sep 2023
It was a great tour, entertaining and informative! Our tour guide was great ! It was quite the history lesson and we learned a lot in a fun way.
Fabulous tour guide.
Nancy_R, Aug 2023
The tour guide was amazing. I can't remember her name but she was one of the best tour guides I have ever had. She was extremely entertaining, Informative and brought the history to life. Besides all that, when I tried to tip her she would not take tips.
Poorly Run
Ronald_S, Aug 2023
Regretfully, this was not a good experience. The tour was grossly overbooked (90+). After the first stop, the group was split and we went with a new guide. That group was still too big. For those at the back to hear properly. With everyone advanced booked, the company should have known. Greed overcame them. And, yes, I would like my money back.
Interesting information about the old town
Brian_B, Aug 2023
Great tour of the old section of Waterford with a lot of interesting information about the town and its history. Group was too large though for it to be able to hear very well. They eventually brought in a second tour guide to break up the tour.
Not rushed, very...
Donald_B, Aug 2023
Not rushed, very informative and entertaining. We appreciated the sense of humour of our guide who really knew what he was talking about.
Impressive and very interesting.
Sharon_E, Aug 2023
Very interesting tour. Our guide Jack had excellent knowledge of and understanding of the viking history and events. He was also very funny which made the tour even better.
An hour well spent

Viking triangle tour
Lindsay_L, Jun 2023
Great tour, good information and not too long. Guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and we were able to hear perfectly even with the city traffic. Would recommend as a first stop in the city.
Excellent and informative walking tour of Waterford
Patrick_A, May 2023
The walking tour guide in Waterford (Epic Tour of the Viking Triangle) was excellent and very informative, he gave us a lot of information on the Vikings including showing us the replica of a Viking boat that was used to cross the English Channel. We would recommend this tour although short but very informative.
Perfect tour!

The amount of time was perfect for the tour. The guide covered all the main attractions, and this allowed me to feel I seen everything in the limited amount of time I had at Waterford.
History tour more than Viking tour.
Todd_D, Oct 2022
This is a very short walking tour. It center around very well trained tour guides who have a vast amount of knowledge of the history of Waterford. I would Not call this a Viking tour as we did not speak much about the Viking after the initial start of the tour. But the information in the history of Waterford was great.
Save your money
Kenneth_C, Sep 2022
Guide was glib, seemingly giving a robotic repetition of a standard spiel. Disappointed. Not worth it.
Interesting and Informative Tour
Randolph_H, Sep 2022
We lucked out and had one of the directors of the museum as our guide and he was so incredibly knowledgeable. We felt we learned so much about the city and its history! Tip: This tour includes admission to various attractions which I didn't realize so I ended up booking both this tour and buying the 5 attraction museum pass. You only need to pay for this tour and it will secure your admission into most of the museums.
Don't miss this tour!
Lucy_M, Jul 2022
Personnel were so well informed and courteous. Tour was great! History of Waterford is very interesting.
Poorly organized
Howard_L, Jun 2022
The tour itself was OK but it was rushed. When we arrived at what we thought was the meeting point we found four other people who are also going on the tour who were also waiting for it to start but we saw no guide. After about 10 minutes we went upstairs into the building and we’re told that we had to report there for the guide to come. One would’ve thought that the guide would have come out and look for us when no one showed up. We then eventually got the tour but the guide was rushed as she had another tour starting .
