If you’re hesitant about booking your trip, this is for you. This tour and Tommy was one of the highlights of our Ireland trip. Not only did we get the chance to see breathtaking scenery but we also got to learn more about Ireland’s history and stories about its people from the very charming and funny Tommy. The tour is absolutely worth every euro as you get to experience so many different things in the span of one day. We can only recommend it (especially remembering the great pub food and Tommy’s charm).

Due to corona, our trip was postponed by 1 year. We contacted Galway Tour company to take us from Dublin to Galway and for the day trips. With 15 friends we booked a private bus. We visited the Aran Islands, Cliff of Mohers, Kylemore Abbey and Connemara. Our driver PJ guided us through the fabulous scenery of the west coast. He treated us to special stories and guided us through the small country roads with unique panoramas. If you are planning a trip to Ireland, I can only recommend booking with Galway tour company. They offer that little bit more that makes the trip unforgettable.

David and I visited Ireland for the first time a few weeks back, and were so excited to visit Galway. He had booked this adventure with hopes we would see some beautiful sites and learn more about the country. We started off the day being the first ones picked, and our tour guide Tommy was extremely friendly and welcoming.

During the drive through the countryside to the islands, he shared so many wonderful historical and comical stories that we really enjoyed listening too. He also shared great recommendations on where to grab a pint or share fish and chips.

While on the island, we took a quick tour and then stopped for lunch. We had a few pints and the best fish n chips we've ever had. The sun ended up coming up and was an extremely hot day.

We next hopped back on to the boat for the tour along the cliffs, which was absolutely stunning. The pictures could never do the beauty justice.

Later, we visited the top of the cliffs for an hour to enjoy more views and photo opportunities. Walking along the cliffs, Tommy joined us and mentioned he walks up and down everyday to get his steps in. A few minutes later, David asked Tommy to take a picture of us and then he actually proposed. Tommy knew all along, he had been in on the surprise and got the special moments on camera. It was magical.

On the final leg of the drive home along the ocean, he surprised us further and stopped to get us glasses of champagne to celebrate. He really went above and beyond to make our day special. We wrapped those glasses up in our suitcases and brought them home. A memory and time we will never forget, thanks to Tommy.

We highly recommend this tour with him and we will absolutely be back to visit to see him again!

I was lucky to be able to be with Galway tours on two full day trips (Aran Islands and Connemara). My experience was great. My son and I enjoyed every minute of company with Big Mike and Mike Rooney.
Mike Rooney especially impressed us with his kindness, wide knowledge and his willingness to meet the wishes of passengers. I am very happy to recommend it to other tourists who will have the opportunity to see this beautiful part of Ireland and meet these wonderful people.

We liked the places we visited. Tour/driver was quiet for the beginning of trip as he was running a bit late. It would have been nice to get some information about some places we drove through. The bus didn't have where to connect cords to charge phones. We would have enjoyed seeing the monolithic stone in the Barrens, instead of the short stop we did. Also we noticed they we paid more online than what a couple who was in the bus paid the driver in cash.

The whole tour was an amazing experience,
but seeing the Cliffs of Moher from sea
and than enjoying the most beatiful view from top of the Cliffs was breath-taking especially because the weather was more than perfect for such a tour. The bus driver, who was also our tour guide, was very kind and professional making sure tgat we receive all the necessary information about places we were driving through or visiting. At the same time, he was very amusing keeping our attention at high level at all times.

Breathtaking views and both beautiful places to visit. John, our tour guide, was very entertaining and always trying to make sure we were having a good time and we were well taken care of. The huge bus was so comfortable with lots of space. We were about 14 people in total in a bus with four or five times that capacity so it was very safe and comfortable. Everyone wore masks at all times and the AC kept the air cool and flowing. Kudos to John for managing some unforseen setbacks during the trip while always keeping good spirits and making us laugh throughout the day. We'll definitely be doing this tour once more in the future to experience everything these places have to offer at different times of the year.

Well what can I say. Our tour guide was Tommy and all I can say is WOW. Fantastic local knowledge. Extremely approachable and friendly. Couldn't do enough for you. As for the day trip its approximately 10 hours long and excellent value for money. U get plenty of time on each stage of the tour and as for the trip to the island highly recommended. Locals are great craic and recommend getting a horse and carriage for 10 euro per person. Excellent value.
