Pinky fingers at the ready!

Imagine seeing the incredible sights of Cork city whilst sipping on some hot milky tea and munching on some delish sambos.

Well, now's your chance.

The famous Vintage Tea Tours is coming to Cork City from July 20 to 21.

Known to be one of the best and quirkiest tours in Dublin City currently, the 1960s-style bus will be taking on the red county for the The Cork Summer Series.

Hello 2019 🥰 We’re excited to get back into the swing of things after nothing but sweet treats and strong drinks! The only thing strong today though is our tea ☕️ We’re easing ourselves back into the new year gently and so for the month of January our tour schedule is as follows: Monday, Thursday & Friday - 1.15pm Tour Only Saturday & Sunday - 11am, 1.15pm and 3.30pm Closed Tuesday & Wednesday. Our operations and marketing teams though are very busy working hard on something that we can’t wait to share! 2019 is an exciting one for VTT and as they say new year, new us 😉🙌🏼 . . . . . . . . . . #vintage #afternoontea #dublin #openinghours #vintageteatours #routemaster #bus #2019

The bus tours will be partnering with a local historian who will be sharing stories about Cork and how it came to be.

They are also partnering with The River Lee Hotel to offer guests a glass of bubbles for just €6 once the tour has ended.

They said:

"For one weekend only the Vintage Tea Tour team are heading to the rebel city to give Corkonians a taste of Afternoon Tea, the Irish way!
Hop aboard our 1960s vintage Routemaster bus and tuck into a delectable afternoon tea. Sit back, relax and let us regale you with tales about Cork. Don’t worry, us Dubs won’t be doing the story telling, we’ve hired a local expert who’ll share stories about Cork you never knew existed."

I tried out the tour a year ago and I loved it. Here's a sneak peek of what's to come:

Tours will be running from 11am, 1.15pm and 3.30pm on Saturday July 20 and 11am and 1.15pm on Sunday 21

Pick up and drop off will be at The River Lee hotel.

Places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
