      Very informative on the history of Galway. Loved it! Thank you
      I was the only one on the tour, but I loved every minute of it, even though it was a very hot day! I got to see a lot of things , hidden in back streets that I would have never seen on my own. Like the old ruins they found when they were renovating a building.

      Walking Galway with Ger was such a pleasure! Not only he shared tonnes of interesting facts about this vibrant town but filled it with plenty of most memorable stories about the inhabitants throughout the centuries. I learned a lot about the 14 tribes, how it all started in Galway in medieval times and now I know what to do in Galway. Thank you so much Ger! T'was a pleasure to meeting you!
