      Highly recommended spectacular experience
      Cannot recommend this experience enough. Dave was a charming, engaging and knowledgeable guide. The landscapes and sites we saw were breathtaking — truly impossible to describe the beauty of County Clare and Inisheer. Lunch at the pub in Doolin was delicious — especially the mushroom vol au vent. The value for the money is fantastic.

      A memorable day to the Cliffs of Moher and The Burren, plus much more!
      We have just returned from a most memorable excursion to see the Cliffs of Moher where the views were great, the weather was kind to us, and we had enjoyed Irish Stew for lunch at McGanns pub. The sights in The Burren were numerous and we also had other stops. Our driver/guide Patrick was so informative about so much we were seeing, giving us many bonus photo opportunities and amusing us with his Irish humour! We would certainly recommend this trip.

      Anthony was amazing and very charming. We enjoyed his tour and driving. Beautiful country. Many shops were closed but that was due to the season we went. Still a fun drive.

      Magical moments in Ireland
      I enjoyed our trip to Kylemore Abbey. The driver was very friendly and provided all the information about Galway and all the places we visited. The only thing that I did not understood was the fact that I had to pay extra the ticket price to enter the Kylemore Abbey. It was not clear to me. I thought it was included in the price we paid for the tour. I would love to include more places of touristic interest. In general I m thankful for the lovely tour you offered us. Looking forward to coming back.

      St. Patrick is named after Partick
      Our tour guide Patrick was fantastic! The tour was way more than we expected including several bonus stops in lovely areas to explore. Patrick was fun-loving and well versed in Irish history. He made us feel very welcomed and we would recommend him to anyone new to the area :)

      A suberb and excellent location and a must to visit. It is advisable to have a walk in the forest and the garden and continue walk along the lake beyond the castle. Lovely food joint over there providing great veggies and non vegetarian options. Worth visint.

      A must see
      Best day we had spent in Galway, we got to see a ton of great sights both to and from he cliffs and had a very nice experience. The driver Gary was nothing short of an absolute gentleman and tended to guests very well. We made several stops and he was very knowleged on the places went to, great sense of humor and a nice lad. Cliffs are without a doubt a must see if you come to Ireland.

      Amazing day trip out of Galway.
      Gary was awesome! Myself, my husband, and 4 friends are visiting Galway for a couple days and this was the best way to see the Cliffs and other attractions! Gary was so knowledgeable and kind which made our adventure even better! Would highly recommend.

      Highly recommend Cliffs of Moher tour with Gary!
      My sister and I took the Cliffs of Moher tour with Gary and smiled the entire time. He shared stories of local history, the land, and the Irish people while injecting dry humor that had us in stitches. We enjoyed lunch in a local pub and traditional Irish food (beef stew for me and fish and chips for my sister) was delicious and fresh. Of course, we also tipped back a pint of Guinness. The highlight of our trip was the Cliffs. The views were absolutely breathtaking. Highly recommend Galway Tours!!

      More than just The Cliffs!
      The tour was 8 hours but it certainly didn’t feel that long. Gary did a great job telling stories and making frequent stops at interesting places along the way. Even the lunch stop was well-organised and at a great local pub. This tour was so much more than just The Cliffs. Highly recommended!

    My mom came to visit and this was the perfect thing to do. The driver, JP, was very witty and thanks to him being from the area, he knew very much about everything and gave us very interesting facts and his driving was impeccable, especially with those narrow roads! He was extremely friendly and helpful and had great time management and we even did an extra surprise stop. I was great 12/10 would do again! (:

    Had an absolutely brilliant tour with Gary last Wednesday to the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher. Gary was an absolute legend keeping the bus on the windy roads while constantly giving everyone a brilliant guided tour. He was so accommodating to all the tourists on board & even managed to get us a cruise around the bottom of the Cliffs due to the calm waters on a beautiful sunny day which isn't common in Ireland! Would 100% recommend!

    Eamonn was our guide and driver for the day. He gave us 8,000 years of history in an afternoon and had us laughing much of the time as well. All the stops were terrific and the Cliffs of Moher alone would’ve made this tour worth it. Nice to be guided along the drive, taking scenic routes and learning about the sights and then have the opportunity to explore them at your own pace during the stops.

    Anthony was absolutely lovely! We ultimately had a great time.

    I'm torn between 4 and 5 stars - go into this knowing it is a very touristy activity, you will be on a bus for *hours*, and most of the stops are pretty short, about 15 minutes except for the cliffs. Lunch is also quick affair - we were all crammed together at tables in a small pub with limited, very heavy menu options that will put you to sleep for the rest of the trip. If you're vegan, pack your own lunch. All in all a great way to visit the cliffs without managing your own transportation as long as you go in with the right expectations.

    This trip was by far the worst trip / booking we’ve done in the last few years. The tour operator should never allow a large school block booking and put a group that size with every day locals and tourists taking this trip. We got bunched between the entire school group. They wouldn’t stop talking, listening to videos / their phone, and their chaperone did nothing to help. We missed nearly the whole “tour” component where John was telling us about various events, cities, history, etc (and it’s a shame, as he was engaging and very knowledgeable). In addition, at each stop, the students were smoking cigarettes and every time we came back on the bus we were encompassed by cigarette smoke. The whole experience made enjoying the cliffs and our other stops along the journey near impossible to enjoy. I’d reiterate, the tour operator should never allow these bookings again. Large groups (of students especially) should need to book a private tour. I wouldn’t recommend this trip to anyone.

    Tour company apparently miscounted and some of us were stuck on a short bus instead of the coach. As a result we had to waste a half hour wandering around a gas station parking lot while waiting for everyone to use the single bathroom there. Guide was nice, but was totally lackadisical on time (often forgetting to say how long we would be at a stop unless specifically asked, and even then only giving ranges) and did nothing to prevent several selfish members of the group from abusing those timeframes and continually returning late. So we ended up arriving back to Galway far later than the main group, even though we left first.

    This trip was absolutely amazing! Our guide was great and very knowledgeable. His driving was excellent, was worried about getting car sick because of the roads and us being on a bus but no one in our party got sick. We had plenty of time at the Cliffs as well as the other stops. I was very impressed with the lunch service as it was quick, effective, and delicious. I highly recommend booking this tour if you are wanting to see the Cliffs as well as some other sites in the Ireland country side. Also - thank you to the Galway Tour Company and our driver for picking us up in Oranmore, we greatly appreciated that touch!

    Such a great day! We were super blessed with the weather (I got sunburnt!)
    This is totally worth it, from all the sites you see, to the time you have at each - perfect- and then the custom made soundtrack Dave made for each part of the journey. Dave was super knowledgeable about the area and filled with historical knowledge and personal stories.
    Would totally recommend!

    What a wonderful trip. It's thanks to the tour drivers that you get to appreciate vivid details of Irish culture. The soul enriching stories that these heartwarming men tell you will certainly colour your day.

    You'll be taken to some of the most beautiful and lush places in Ireland. It's certainly worth the time and effort. I've personally done the Conemara and the Cliffs of Moher tour, and I am glad that I did. Conemara's (Connemara) Beauty is unparalleled, enwrapped in the passion that is found within the proud Irish culture, I am glad to see such a place surviving on traditions that have been passed down through generations.
    The dramatic Lovestory of the Kylemore Abbey is something you'll be drawn in by. And you can taste it as you walk through their gardens and through the old estate.
    The cliffs of Mother are a trip in and of itself. The harsh beauty that you'll find accompanied by many a great story. Honestly my heart was stirred. I did not think I could enjoy the beauty of Ireland as much as I did.

    Gary, you spin a great story. Honestly I'm impressed by your storytelling ability. I hope you get to connect and entertain people for many years to come. Your high energy got people excited and got them to interact with each other. Which really was a delight to experience.

    Mike, I really enjoyed your paced and interactive tour. It made it easy to translate to those that didn't speak the language and you were incredibly patient and caring.

    Great tour! Our guide was John and he was super funny, nice and talkative. he did a great job telling us all about the places we visited or passed by.
    The trip cost 45 € and we visited:

    The Castle

    The Portal Tomb

    Doolin village - lunch break. It's worth going to the recommended pub, because they're prepared for a large group and you receive your meal and pint immedietaly. No time is wasted waiting. Prices are fair, just like everywhere else.
    2 hours on Cliffs of Moher

    Some additional beautiful spot by the coast of The Burren

    Totally worth it, I usually go everywhere by myself, but in this case it's worth to save money, time and find out more than by self.
