Great day trip to the Cliffs of Mohar. Wayne made the trip. We typically enjoy activities that are active, bike rides, hikes etc, but wanted to see the cliffs as everyone said they were fantastic. We were a bit concerned that so many hours on a bus would get kinda boring. However Wayne was absolutely Fabulous, he made the trip totally memorable - we were entertained with the perfect mix of history, clever jokes, answers to our questions and quiet time. We were surprised how much history we learned and how passionately Wayne shared tidbits by making the stories so interesting and memorable. He had a special way of putting us in the middle of history as it unfolded around us.

We highly recommend this trip, I would hope that every one of their drivers would be as excellent as Wayne! If you are fortunate enough to have Wayne as your guide, get ready for a great day!

I had the pleasure of spending the day in the bucolic Boyne Valley with a wonderful tour guide Michael Fox. We visited many places of historic, political and spiritual significance to include the Monasterboice (with its impressive round tower and high crosses), Bective Abbey (monastic settlement), Trim Castle and Newgrange (burial mound that was both mysterious and mystical). Michael was engaging and knowledgeable and his stories capture the spirit of place that will endure. He gets my strongest endorsement.

Highest recommendation!

Michael was an incredible tour guide who took us through Wicklow and Glendalough. We started off driving through the scenic Wicklow Mountains, stopped to see the monastic ruins at Glendalough, visited the Avoca Mills, several estate gardens, and finished the day off with a visit to coastal towns.

Michael was great at planning and pacing the trip around the attractions we were most excited to see. My wife has a background in fashion and textiles, so we spent a lot of time at the Avoca Mills. She was also excited to see the estate gardens, and Michael let us wander around Kilmacurragh for much longer than a tour group would get to stay. Michael made lots of suggestions and helped plan several stops outside of what we researched, including a few hidden gems like a quiet spot to walk along the coast.

And unlike other days where we went on larger tour buses, we never felt rushed or bored during the day.

It was a fun and memorable day - by far the best of the 10 days we were in Ireland.

My wife and I had a great tour out of Dublin with Michael that covered Glendalough, Kilkenny and the Wicklow mountains. Michael was knowledgable, professional, helpful and very personable. I highly recommend his services and would use him again.
