We had booked with Boyne Valley Tours last year for an upcoming tour in June of 2020 and unfortunately had to cancel due to the current worldwide health & travel restrictions; Michael was a pleasure to deal with during the booking process and we were so looking forward to the day we were going to spend with him, but he was also a complete gentleman during the cancellation process; absolutely looking forward to rebooking the trip and tour in the future. Visit is described below as in April, which was actually when the cancellation was made.

I had such a great experience with Michael Fox of Boyne Valley Tours back in 2015, that I reached out to him in advance of a return visit to Ireland that I took last month with my niece. Michael graciously collected us at the Dublin Airport shortly after our plane arrived at a very early hour. With time to spare, we took an impromptu detour from the motorway and headed to the beach in Bettystown and watched the sun rise over the Irish Sea! What a sight that was! We then meandered through various picturesque towns and then visited the impressive locations of Monasterboice, the Old Mellifont Abbey, Trim Castle, Hill of Slane (a must see!), and Slane Castle. From there, Michael brought us to our hotel in Derry. Along the drive Michael and I engaged in great conversations about Irish history (recent and not so recent) and current events. It was so great to see him again and it was as if we picked up where we left off nearly five years ago. If you intend to travel to the Dublin/Boyne Valley areas, I highly recommend that you plan a tour with Michael Fox of Boyne Valley Tours! He has so much knowledge to share and you are guaranteed to enjoy and learn from your experience! Book with him now before all the crowds return.

This tour is amazing. Michael our guide is from the area and is a font of knowledge. Michael was able to be the "official" tour guide for those areas that don't have one. He is also knowledgeable in with many areas along the route and the history of Ireland in general. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

Anyone wanting a private tour will not go wrong chosing Michael Fox. Michael Fox is a wonderful guide, knowledgeable, and attentive to what your interests are. He delivered a day filled with historic sites as well as taking me to see the town my family came from, Ardcath. I am so thankful I chose Boyne Valley Tours and Michael Fox. Thank you Michael!

Our guide, Barry, had grown up in the Boyne Valley, so was intimately familiar with it and added details that made the tour even better. I made the mistake of not wearing waterproof shoes, so by the time we had trekked up the Hill of Tara my shoes and socks were soaked! That didn't deter from the magnificence of where we were. It was so interesting to learn about the kings and queen of Ireland and see the depressions in the high grass where a building had once stood in ancient times. Our next stop, Trim Castle, was equally as enjoyable and plenty of time was allowed to roam around and take in all the sites. Back on the bus, now with dry socks and warmer feet, we head to Loughcrew, where we hiked up a hill to the passage tombs. That was pretty cool! Although unable to go inside, just seeing these up close was well worth the trek. We lunched at a sweet cafe that had a thatched roof and other time period buildings to visit before getting back on the bus and heading to Fore Abbey. The abbey was different yet similar to Trim Castle and just another phenomenal experience on this adventure. Our final destination was Uisreach, and our guide, Marty Mulligan, was the best ever! He literally brought to light what this place meant to the ancient people of Ireland. We stood on a high spot and could see all the surrounding counties as he shared a ritual of earlier times. Great day!
