  • Such beauty and informational of the oldest city in Ireland. The Vikings did not disappoint. The landmarks are a must see and the drive from Dublin through the countryside was stunning.

  • I was a bit skeptical of this being worth the time and money, but it was the highlight of our visit to Waterford. Definitely worth it and I highly recommend it. It is a virtual reality experience that journeys through the past of Viking history.
  • No booking via website… we called and booked for 2pm. We arrived in Waterford at 1pm and because we knew we still would have to eat, we started calling to re-book the experience. No one picked up the phone. After 20 or 30 attempts I left a message on their answering machine around 1:30pm. No one called me back. When we finally arrived around 2:30pm they were fully booked for the day, nobody knew I had called, nobody had picked the message. They said from 1 to 2pm is their lunch time which is not mentioned anywhere. What kind of touristic place is that ?!
  • Great virtual reality show. €10 for approx 20 minutes right in city centre
  • Bart was an enthusiastic and engaging host and tour guide. He took an interest in everyone there and made sure his visitors all felt valued in their interests and questions. None of us would hesitate to recommend this experience to anyone! A pleasure.
  • Really enjoyed this virtual tour. Was amazing just wish it went on for longer. It felt so real when the Vikings were standing beside you and when you were on the water. Well worth a visit if you are in Waterford
