It was a lovely day and we were able to see so much of the cliffs and Galway. I wish we had more time in Galway, but overall it was a great day.

I had a great trip. Our guide was Bud, a super cheerful guy who made what could feel like a very long bus ride a lot of fun and fly by! He gave good tips for where to go on the stops. The cliffs are beautiful and we got enough time to trot around and take photo's. We had a tasty lunch in the pub with very quick service as well. The ride from the cliffs to Galway is full of gorgeous views. The stop in Galway was just long enough to have a good stroll around the centre. I would 100% recommend going on this trip.

We were picked up promptly by our guide John, it was a small group of myself and my partner and a family of 3, small group. John was brilliant from the start he was very knowledgable on the area and history surrounding Galway and the areas that we traveled to. John would stop at beautiful locations to take pictures, he did not rush or make us feel that anything was too much trouble, the weather was terrible but he kept everybody happy, the tour covered fantastic sights and allowed us to see how island people live. Would highly recommend this tour even if weather is bad the views are amazing, good value tour
It was great! The Tour itself brought us to many beautiful spots in Ireland and our tour guide David O´Brian was just the best! On our drive to Doolin he told us some interesting facts about galway as the city we´re all staying in, about geolocial peculiarities, the weather, the people and several other kind of things. I would not only recommend that tour but also do it again anytime!
