Review summary

very good, interesting guide

comfortable combination of transport (train+bus), reliable organisation, exhaustive information, very interesting, poetic guide, wish to have more time for the cliffs. Galway is very good choice to stay and for the overnight, nice hotel Victoria. On the other hand - the tour was not cheap.
