With continued COVID travel restrictions, Marteen's live guided virtual tour was the next best thing to being there. Using her phone and an enviable data plan, Marteen guided me through Medieval Galway, sharing her love of Irish history along the way. Marteen is very knowledgeable, and patiently answered all of my questions. She is a delight to listen to.

Absolutely loved the HerGalway virtual tour today. As a birthday surprise my 2 sisters also booked on, such a touching idea (thank you Terri) Marteen is a wonderful story teller, such a warm, friendly and so knowledgeable. Dark tour next, would love to book on an actual tour when we get back to some kind of normality. Thanks so much Marteen!

Marteen is an incredible tour guide whose passion for Irish history and the iconic women of Galway is immediately apparent. While I would’ve loved to walk the streets of Galway again in person (and can’t wait to do so again), Marteen’s enthusiasm, breadth of knowledge and friendly personality brought this virtual tour to life! I would highly recommend the HerGalway walking tour to anyone looking to brush up on history and experience Galway (virtually or in person!). It was a great way to spend a Saturday morning exploring Galway history (virtually) with friends!

Excellent, very informative and insightful and delivered in a friendly and warm way. Marteen is very knowledgable and imparts her knowledge in an easy going way. To suit all ages and also a lovely family experience. Her conversation flows and she is open to all questions and interactions. Her chat doesn’t come across as scripted and it all seems so natural. A very interesting way to view the city and learn more about it. Highly recommend *****

This is a quirky and very interesting tour of places that hide a dark side in their history..places such as SuperMacs Eyre Square (won't spoil the story - go along!). Marteen's historical storytelling is very detailed and engaging. She clearly loves her history, and the finer points of the story. See a side of Galway most people don't know about..even people living there! Highly recommend.
