What people are saying about Galway

We rented electric bikes. I am so glad that we got them instead of regular bikes. There are hills to climb and if you have a hard time riding bikes, it would not be enjoyable. The history is phenomenal. You could easily spend a couple of days here. I would definitely do it again.

Everything as described. The guide made frequent stops in between to admire and photograph the landscape. In the national park you have enough time to go for a nice walk.

Phillip and Tommy are amazing, a smooth ride, lots of interesting information and the national park trail is amazing.

Impressive scenery and the driver shared lots of interesting information and stories along the way. Great tour!

Great way to get to the Aran Islands. Indoor seating. Fast.
