Coca Cola Truck in Tallaght

Join Hidden Dublin Tours on a storytelling adventure, as you question if you've been good or bad, and see whether you can persuade the elves that your name should indeed be on Santa’s good list.

You'll join two of Santa's elves on the Christmas Bus on a puzzling adventure to save the Magic of Christmas. Solve the clues, find the letters and prove that you believe in all the good that Christmas can bring in order to save Christmas. But be wary - some of the elves that may seem nice...might actually be naughty!
