I'm not usually very fond of bus tours but this one was brilliant. John B was an amazing guide who you can tell really loves his job. He passionately provided us with lots of insight about Galway and all the attractions we passed. He was extremely interesting to listen to. The tour itself was extremely accommodating. We were given plenty of time at each attraction as well as discounts for tours and a lunch stop.

It's a good mid-day excursion because you see the Cliffs of Mohar and then you come back and from Galway on the trip you can also see the Irish countryside well. I recommend it !!! they are very punctual

John B. was a great guide! It was a very nice trip, the cliffs were amazing, but we could use a little more time on the cliffs and it would also be nice to see Doolin, not just stop for a quick lunch.

Wonderful experience. If you want a quick tour of the cliffs of moher with no fancy thrills or frills this is it! I enjoyed the quick drive up, the beautiful views, and a quick drive back into town.

John B. was an excellent guide. He explained a lot of history and culture. He kept us on time.
