What people are saying about Galway

Great guide, weather was uncooperative, but fun overall

This is a whole day tour, Our bus driver and guide, PJ, was exceptional. Passed through the Burren (no time to stop), into Doolin, where we boarded a small ferry for our ride to Inis Oirr, the smallest of the Aran Islands. Took a covered cart and horse ride around the island for an extra 10 Euro per person, which was well worth the price. Had a quick Irish Coffee at small pub before boarding the ferry again. This time, we ferried underneath the Cliffs of Moher, which was a spectacular way to see them. Then into Doolin for a seafood chowder lunch and a pint. We were lucky enough to stumble into a wake procession at the pub, and were treated to some fine impromptu live Irish music, by Yvonne Casey, a well known fiddler, whose uncle had passed (and, sorry for your troubles, my dear). Then to the tops of Cliffs of Moher for another view. Then back to Galway. Weather was bad but we did see enough and had good local fun. Beautiful scenery, great driver, and took a nap en route back. Fun!

Awesome experience - from pick up to drop off!

We decided to take a tour rather than drive ourselves that day and it was the best decision!! Our driver and guide, Alan, was phenomenal! He not only was a safe and considerate bus driver, but he delighted us with his history of Ireland; the attractions he pointed out along the way; his direction on what to expect and what to do regarding getting onto the ferry to the Aran Islands, and being back on time; his assistance in coordinating the various tour methods on the island; his directions on where to go for food and the best sites, etc.; his jokes that were actually very funny; and overall, his warm and approachable personality! I don't feel that the experience would have been as positive or as informative had we driven ourselves. I hope that anyone that books with this tour has the good fortune of travelling with Alan! :)

Awesome, best way to experience wild Atlantic

It was an amazing experience and a good decision to buy this tour facility. My wife and I were on a short weekend trip and wanted to experience Cliffs of Moher and Aran islands. The whole trip was very well organised and ran smoothly. We loved the pub where the lunch was organised (lunch not covered in trip fee). I must mention about the X-factor of the whole tour, the guide - John, he was simply excellent and ensured we spent each minute on the bus laughing while learning about local history. He is an excellent coach driver and drove it in the most comfortable and safe way. Bottom line - excellent way to spend the day at an affordable price point too. Go for it definitely.

Incredible guide/driver. Fantastic experience

John was straight up an approachable and fun character, he had a wealth of information and plenty of cracker jokes to entertain us. He always checked on us to ensure everyone was okay and anyone who wasn't he helped, especially on the ferry! Could not have asked for a better guide/driver. His skills on that road were fantastic and I felt safe! He also gave heaps of tips of what to do in Galway. Aran Islands a little disappointing with the tractor trailer guy, he left us for 40 mins at the shipwreck and his dog bit me, John apologised for this but was not his fault at all! Would definitely recommend to everyone to do!

Great trip through the Burrens and the cliffs ferry ride.

we enjoyed our trip through the Burrens and along the west coast. the Aran island we visited was less than what i expected; maybe because it was the smallest island ? the Cliffs of Moher cruise was great; best way to experience the cliffs. our tour guide/bus driver Patrick Joseph (PJ) was funny; great stories; and always knew which people where his "kids" and made sure we were safe and taken care of
