This was my absolute favorite Dublin excursion. I'm from USA and was fascinated by the history and sites included on this tour. It's a 10 hour tour but there is no way I could have experienced so much any other way. Our tour guide, (CowHell) was an expert on each site plus a safe and pleasant driver. I highly recommend it - not a good fit for small children or people with limited mobility.
Great day out from Dublin. This trip takes you to a few of the ancient sites that are a little bit less known/popular on the tourist trail, so you get a real chance to experience them without hoards of other travellers. Our small bus held about 18 and was almost full. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Opportunity for lunch in a country pub. The day passed quickly and smoothly. By the end we had a much greater understanding of some Irish history. Well worth taking and the price was very good value.
We got a lot of interesting information during the trip, our tour leader was very knowledgeable, nice, friendly and had a good sense of humor. We enjoyed the day, it was well organized.
This tour was awesome. I'm so glad I went. It gave me a real feel for the country, people and their history. I highly recommend it. Our guide was knowledgable and fun.
The day tour was every bit as good as was advertised. Our driver was very informative and provided excellent information with the history of the areas we visited.
Our tour guide made this a very interesting, historic and fun tour. Wayne went out of his way to explain quite a lot of history connected to the sites of Ireland we were lucky enough to visit. He engaged all customers, which made it more personal to spend the day travelling with our group. A+, thank you so much, we will definitely use your company during future visits!
We really enjoyed this day trip out of Dublin. The guide was knowledgeable, informative and approachable. All the sights were interesting, not too much time spent on the bus and the lunch spot was good value and very tasty. Highly recommend.
What a wonderful tour! We loved the small van/group vs. large tour bus!. We learned a lot about Ireland's past and our tour guide, Conrad, is fantastic!! History is his Passion and it showed! And loved that he was quite humorous too!!! We'll be back in year and we're booking another tour.
There were no tourists at the sites that day. It was wonderful. We had it all to ourselves. Our guide was excellent and made several unexpected stops as he is from the area. Really enjoyed the day
Shane was a great tour guide. He gave us detailed accounts of the history behind the sites we were seeing, and the myth and folklore behind the sites we were seeing as well. If you want to learn about ancient irish history, this is the tour for you. If you want a fun time, I recommend Shane.
We loved the tour and tour guide. The few other times we've ventured to Ireland had us renting a car and struggling with the driving differences so it was a welcome relief to sit back in a smaller comfortable coach and enjoy the sights and the professional and very thorough explanation of the sights
Our guide was personable, witty, and helpful. The amplification system in your vehicle is poor and was frustrating even the guide. It would be helpful to have some printed material of the itinerary.
D was a great tour guide. He was very friendly and informative. The tour was very interesting. It was nice to get out of Dublin and see the countryside. I would highly recommend this tour.
Our guide, Shane, was great. The sites were really interesting.
The only downside was the rain. It was pouring rain nearly all day long. But... that's Ireland !!!
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide did a great job of explaining the religious history of the area. Some of the hills were too much for Grandma, but our little kids did great. I think the kids highlight was chasing a bunch of sheep that were grazing near one of the tombs.
Wonderful trip. Excellent touguide/ driver! Fun, friendly and looked after us very well! Excellent itinerary!
The best tour of my entire trip!!! Enough time was given to walk around and explore, so we didn't have to run around to see everything. The sites were beautiful. I finally saw Tara. Thank you for this tour, and thanks to our tourguide Ross.
Just about saw everything possible in the Boyne Valley. Our driver guide was excellent, very humorous and full of interesting facts. You will need a full-charged camera because your day will be filled full of unforgettable sights. Also be prepared for a long day and have the odd snack tucked into a bag but well worth the 10 hours
Very good tour, many different things seen and heard during a day. We can recommend!
This was an excellent day trip. Highly recommended. Barry, did a great job. We had a small van group of nine people and, if you want to get the history of Ireland this is the way to go.
Extremely good tour! Our guide was wonderful; fun, informative and professional!! What a great way to learn about the ancient history of Ireland! I recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see an 'off the beaten path' tour of the country.
