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.

My daughter and I had a wonderful day. Michael Fox was so informative and showed us so much. It was a power full day and it gave it us a new sense of pride in our Irish heritage. The best thing to finish off our 4 1/2 week holiday.

My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Michael Fox for a full day tour that was the highlight of our trip to Dublin. I was looking for something more than the 'city' tours and sites, and this tour was perfect. Michael was knowledgable and passionate about the area and willing (even encouraged) modifying the tour to fit our interests. I would absolutely recommend Michael and Boyne Valley Tours.

Yes! Book this tour! Michael is such a great guide we booked him the following day to see more of Ireland. If you’re going to NewGrange, (which you shouldn’t miss) Michael is your guy.

5 star review for Michael Fox - what an amazing tour of the Boyne valley for my wife and I. Michael picked us up at our apartment in Marino, Dublin. He spent all day driving us around to some of the highlights of the Boyne Valley. Our stops included Newgrange, Knowth, Slane Castle (distillery), Hill of Slane, Monasterboyce, Mellifont Abbey, and St. Peter's Church. Michael is originally from this area and knows its history extensively. He owns/operates the websites Newgrange.com and Knowth.com, so you can see for yourself how well he knows this area. Michael is just a wondeful person and was very attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend Michael and his tour company to anyone!

I arrived in Dublin 3 days before my main group tour of the entire country started. Toured Dublin on my own but wanted to specifically see sites around the Boyne Valley that were not going to be part of my main tour.
Contacted Michael by email and gave him a list of places I was interested to see - asking him to let me know what was possible in a day's time.
He was very prompt with communication and my personalized tour was set. He picked me up in my Dublin City Center hotel and dropped me at the hotel near the airport that was the starting point for my group tour.
Michael was born and raised in this area and thus has an intimate connection to the land and the special sites in the area - very knowledgeable and informative. Since he is so familiar with the area, he planned out the day to maximize the number of places I could visit. It was fun to see how many people he knew at the various places we visited. He even took me to his house where I met his wife, an amazing textile artist, and had the opportunity to walk their private labyrinth and have a cup of tea. He also had tickets to visit a site that is not normally open to the public which was a special treat.
My favorite sites were Fourknocks and Dowth. I had both of those places completely to myself.
By the end of the day, I was very tired but very happy!

We were so fortunate to spend a day with Michael Fox in the Boyle Valley. It made our trip to Ireland even more memorable. Michael is a delightful person, excellent guide, and obviously enjoys sharing his love for this beautiful and fascinating area. He goes above and beyond to ensure that you have a fabulous experience. I would highly recommend that everyone fit this into their visit to Ireland.

We went on two tours with Boyne Valley Tour. The Ancient Boyne Valley Guided tour and the Wicklow tour. Love both private tours. Michael is a great tour guide. He is knowlegeable and makes Ireland come alive. Would do this tour again. No complaints.

Michael was a terrific host for our day in the Boyne Valley. He had our tour very well planned. We saw lots of sites, but he left things open for us to see sites of our choosing if we wished. At no point did we fell rushed. Timing was excellent.

On a day with mixed weather, he did a terrific job of managing things so that we avoided outdoors sites during the periodic showers that moved through the area.

Michael is extremely knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommended!
