Best tour of the city, by far! John my guide knew everything there is to know about the city and its history. Funny, informative and a great way to spend 4 hours biking through Ireland streets and trails. Highly recommended this for all.

About 12 of us from our company did the tour last week and even though we live near Galway we learned something new. John makes it all very relaxed and very interesting, perfect pace, very easy cycle suitable for people of all ages. Cycling is a very easy way to tour any city esp Galway.

This is a great value, fun way to explore Galway if your time here is limited or you just don't want to walk! Covering a wide area, yet not tiring (due to flat routes, frequent stops and leisurely pace) this is a must-do for tourists and locals alike - John demonstrates a great knowledge of the city and shares it...
