Overall a fine tour, if the weather co-operates. Wished we had more commentary while we were driving in the bus, explaining what we were seeing. Would be nice to have more time in Galway, a delightful city, but only saw the insides of the hotel. Friendly staff.

Joanne was an excellent tour guide. Really got into the history of the city and all the different names and how places got their name etc. I would highly recommend this activity.
