      A great way to see the sights.
      A great way to see the park. My daughter and I booked the experience and I'm so glad that we did. Although it was a little bit pricey, it was money well spent. We saw loads of the park while ride horses for the first time, what could be better. The instructors were excellent and really knowledgeable about the area.

      Rafting the upper Sac with Jack
      My wife and I recently spent a couple of days rafting with Jack Trout on the upper Sacramento River. The rafting experience was great and the fishing was fun. So different to our lake fishing in Tasmania. Jack was great, the fishing was fun. Lots of beautiful fit rainbows. Staggering on the rocks in the Mcleod on day three was fun. Big fish in the pools but a bit beyond me! If you get to fish with Jack you should. Deer, squirrels and rainbows. People talk about the bears, we saw none! Must go back for more...

      Wow! Wow! and Wow!
      We had the best time! Gabriel was amazing, the tour was amazing, the goats were amazing. My family 12 year old triplets, 16 year old and Mom and Dad had the best time with Gabriel. He was kind and knowledgeable. The tour was perfect, the goats were the best!!!!!! The cheese is to die for. If we ever come back we would do this in a heart beat. Thank you Gabriel for being so amazing to my family, you gave them a core memory and I will forever be in your debt.

      No-show Vendor
      Vendor was a NO-SHOW. After confirming twice I showed up at the shop, waited 25 minutes and phoned the number twice. Never answered, never showed up. Fortunately Westport Bike Hire was just down the road and they rented us great bikes.

      Wild Atlantic Way tour - fantastic!
      Gerry was our tour guide and he was absolutely the best. Loved his jokes, storytelling and the information he provided on the various sites. The tour was a really full day including a trip to Inisheer by the ferry and a view from the water of the Cliffs of Moher.

      VENDER NO SHOW
      The vender was a NO SHOW. Repeated attempts to contact. Fortunately was able ro hire an excellent e-bike from Westport Cycles and had nice ride along trail. Newport to Westport section is not well marked and much on the busy road.

      Aran Island is fun with shopping for their handmade gifts
      This tour was great. Aran Island was fantastic and you can visit the few shops on Aran Island that make the Aran sweaters/socks/blankets etc. It was fun to walk around the island, grab a cup of coffee and rhubarb/strawberry cobbler (yum); the residents that staff the small shops and make the products were friendly, nice and fun to visit with. The Cliffs of Moher were impressive and it ha a wonderful gift shop with museum like section that was very interesting. Lots of walking up the hills but the steps and walkways were nice and the pictures you get are amazing. Aran Island also has horse drawn carriages you can rent/ride in; as well as bikes you can rent or small vehicles for hire to take you up to the castle

      Very fun, relaxing and controlled experience
      For 2 nervous beginners, the trainers couldn't have been more welcoming and professional in putting us at ease and pucking just the right horse for us. Add to that, the stunning scenery in one of the most areas in Ireland and it really was an unforgettable experience and I can't wait to do it again sometime.

      Aran Islands and Cliffs Cruise Tour
      We took the The Aran Islands & The Cliffs Cruise tour with Galway Tour Company. I give Dave, our driver, and the tour company my highest recommendation. The tour even exceeded our expectations. It could not have been better. The Aran Islands and Cliffs are truly breathtaking and made even better with our tour guide Dave. He was very informative, fun, and kept us entertained and laughing on the bus, and played fantastic music while not giving us information. The tour was long, from 09:30 to 19:30, but totally worth it. We were still ready for more when we got off the bus at the end. I highly recommend the tour and Dave our guide.

    A great tour with Phil and Shamus. Awesome itinerary busy but we’ll paced. So many must see locations. It’s a full loop around Galway that packs in so much. We took the buggy ride on the island which was also good.

    We could not have been happier with our tour. Raymond our guide was amazing. He was knowledgeable, personable and just overall spectacular. There was a lot of information given throughout the tour. The boat ride to Inisheer was not for the faint of heart. The water was rough but it was quick and the crew were constantly checking to see that everyone was ok. The island itself was beyond words. We took the pony and trap tour for only 10€ each, which was a STEAL! Our guide Kevin lives on the island and was so pleasant. Though our weather held up through our time on the island fog did roll in which made seeing the cliffs from the water impossible but, weather is not something that can be controlled nor is it exactly surprising when visiting Ireland. The tops of the cliffs were equally foggy but it did manage to clear for a few moments... long enough to get a glimpse and a quick couple pictures. I can’t recommend this tour enough. It was absolutely fantastic and truly memorable.

    Mom and I went on Holidays to Ireland and booked this excursion on the last day before we departed, and it was worth it! Peter was our driver and guide, and was extremely knowledgeable, laid back, a safe driver, and great at interacting with passengers. Not only were we able to stop and do everything on the tour, but were also able to squeeze in a short stop at Dunguaire Castle on our way back from the cliffs. Highly recommend to anyone looking to see the cliffs!

    John was entertaining and knowledgeable of the area. The weather was very cold and rainy, but we had a great time anyway. I’d recommend the tour and ask for John.

    This trip was a lot of fun. You really do get to see a lot of the beautiful "Wild Atlantic Way" on the route from Galway to Doolin. The island of Inisheer was incredible and the locals were incredibly friendly. Great pint of Guinness as well at Tigh Ruairi's. The Cliffs of Moher are absolutely breathtaking; you've never quite seen anything like it.

    All of this being said, the whole experience was made even better by our tour guide, Raymond. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. More than that though, he is a Connemara local with a TON of great stories, some of which heartwarming and others funny. It was really, really fascinating to hear about his experience growing up in Connemara, learning two languages, working on the bog/sod farm, and even the fun he had at Lisdoonvarna one fateful September. Truly a completely different way of life and it was a fascinating insight in to a way of life you didn't even know existed.

    This tour was awesome. John, the tour guide, was incredibly funny and good-humored. He had great recommendations for additional places to visit in Galway and the surrounding area. The Doolin Star, the ferry that took us out to the Aran Islands and under the Cliffs, was so professional and comfortable. Going along the Cliffs and then to see the view from the top was just phenomenal. You don't really get an understanding of the sheer scale until you do both. And the people on Inisheer were so friendly. The island itself was super cool. I highly recommend the tractor ride. You get to see a shipwreck, a sunken church, and views of the island that were spectacular. The food at the hotel was delicious. Honestly, this trip was awesome.

    Amazing day with a wonderful tour guide! We enjoyed our day thanks to fabulous weather, incredible scenery and a very capable tour guide named Alan. He entertained us as well as educated us. We were given clear information and he answered all our questions. Doolin is a lovely little place and we stopped for lunch at Anthony’s which was fabulous. Our 8 km hike to the visitor centre was filled with jaw dropping scenery & beautiful wildflowers. We were dressed appropriately with hiking boots, etc but didn’t need our rain jackets due to the lovely weather. We were blessed.
    The Visitors Centre was wonderful with everything you could need as well as fabulous information. An excellent day, well worth the money. Thanks Alan for the jokes, history lessons and great experience.

    This was one of the highlights of our recent visit to Galway - John the tour guide made the whole experience top rate with his humorous but really informative commentary including the usual guide info but also interesting cultural stories, history, recommendations and insider tips for the area! We were lucky with beautiful weather which allowed us to enjoy the stunning views and used the recommendations for great food and music during and after the tour!
