Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Brian's free walking tour was an absolute riot! He had us in stitches from start to finish with his hilarious commentary and witty anecdotes. Not only did we learn a ton about the city's history and landmarks, but we also laughed our way through every step. Brian's unique blend of entertainment and information made this tour unforgettable.

We went out on the pub crawl tour in Galway the beer pong was water in cups. And we left the promised venue at 1.30pm which was just a basic pub. Definitely a tour not worth it. The tour guide was friendly but there was not really any entertainment or something. Also the pubs weren’t the best.

Hi there, I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy our Pub Crawl as much as you could have. I just wanted to clarify a couple of things for anyone reading. We put water in the cups for the sake of hygiene, especially since COVID, but if people want to pour that out and put beer in that is completely up to them. Secondly, Galway doesn't really have an appropriate nightclubs to bring a group to in the low season, so we go to late bars as there is generally music and more atmosphere. We unfortunately cannot control how many people are on the crawl or in the bars. I hope you enjoyed the rest of the your stay in Galway! Michael

Had a great time. Our guide was Connor, who was funny and engaging.
There was a bit of Irish history, some fun facts and some great stories!
Even though it started raining about halfway through Connor led us cheerily through the rest of the tour ( we only got slightly wet)
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Galway, cos you can get history and advice for the best nights out!

I was in Galway for a few hours before I bumped into Connor at a pub, who told me that he was leading a walking tour of Galway the very next day. Happy days, I did zero planning for this weekend away and walking tours are usually so good. And this one was no exception, Connor is a knowledgable guide, a gifted storyteller, and a talented singer to boot. Extra bonus points for explaining much of the historical context in a sense yet clear opening segment. Would certainly recommend this tour to anyone!

Did the most amazing free walking tour today in Galway!! The guide was really knowledgeable, funny, and super friendly, which made the whole experience so much better. I enjoyed the mix of history, myths and legends, and also recommendations of things to do in the city. I didn’t get bored at all throughout the tour, and our guide was great at answering any questions we had, also showing genuine interest about us- tailoring the information to his audience etc. It was also the perfect length, giving you time to get some lunch with friends you make on the tour, and to visit some places recommended to you on the tour in the afternoon. Definitely one of the best tours I have done in Europe!! My only note is to bring cash to tip your guide, as I was unable to say thanks for such an amazing tour. Thanks Tribes!!

Our guides name was Michael and the tour was one hour and 30 mins exactly. We covered a huge amount of information and it was extremely entertaining and balanced. As I am from Ireland I knew about most of the background but the delivery and flow was really excellent. A fantastic way to find out about Galway City and it’s history.
