If you want a sense of irish history, this is the tour. Very little bus time compared to most tours. Lots of time exploring, with a nice mix of town, castle, and ancient Bronze Age. If you have time for only one tour and want to get off the bus and dig into deep Irish roots, this is the one.
This was a great day trip, with lots of content. We especially liked Trim Castle and the Loughcrew Celtic tombs. It was quite a climb to Loughcrew, but worth it.
This was an outstanding tour. The itinerary was excellent, and the guide was well organized, very knowledgeable, articulate, and easy to understand.
Pick-up location was well explained and convenient, as it was located in city center.
The driver / guide Janet was on-site, checking tour participants in when we arrived at 7:40 am. She was knowledgeable about the history of the Boyne Valley area. I was disappointed that we didn't get to see Newgrange or Knowth, but by substituting Loughcrew as a similar underground passageway tomb for these ancient tombs we avoided the crowds of tourists who stop to visit these places. Additional bonuses included a stop at Bective Abbey, time spent at Trim Castle, a delightful lunch in Navan, and a walking tour through parts of Drogheda including a look at historic St. Patrick's Cathedral. I recommend this as a wonderful way to get a sense for the history of the Boyne Valley area.
Great guide, she was really informative and nice, kept a good pace and we had time to enjoy everything. The Celtic tombs were a surprise, not only did you see the tombs but the view of the countryside was amazing we had a clear day. A good tour.
Excellent selection of sights, and a couple of unplanned stops along the way, following the interests of the customers - excellent and personable driver and tour guide. Would definitely do another one like this.
OMG, the tour guide was the best we have ever had. He was certainly knowledgeable about Ireland history, he sang to us and he was just GREAT...we had a blast on this tour and we learned so much. I could have ridden with him on any tour...great tour, interesting, fun and I cannot say enough about our tour guide. I will be sure to use you whenever I go on tours anywhere.
Our tour guide, Gabriel, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The tour was well-paced and we saw lots of beautiful, historic places that are a bit off the beaten path. Overall, you get more than your money's worth. Thank you, Gabriel!

We loved it!!! Great tour, very informative and fun at the same time!
Unfortunately, we were unable to attend the tour. We were really bummed out.
Mike was a great and highly entertaining guide. Covered a lot of ground but never felt rushed and the sights were beautiful.
Great tour. Sandra picked us up on time and was a wonderful guide. Tour was fun and informative. The hike up to Loughcrew was tough, and it hailed as we reached the top, in July. Good time, we will definitely take another tour with Viator.
Wonderful places, lots of history, and an extremely friendly tour guide who provided us with so many beautiful stories and legends about all the places we've seen!
Very good tour. Wish we could have seen more, but the time was full as it was. Guide very knowledgeable. Enjoy!
Awesome trip! Amazing things to see and Gabe is an excellent guide. Enjoyed the entire day seeing some incredible history and came away with some treasured memories. Thanks!
We had a wonderful time. Alec was so informative and fun to be with. We totally enjoyed the day!!
Loved the tour yesterday. Our guide/driver Barry was very informative and great fun. Would recommend this tour, although you need to be reasonably fit for the steady climb up to Loughcrew.
Great trip. The guide Kevin was really excellent. Lots of information and history. Do it!
wonderful day exploring Irelands heritage. Excellent guide - very informative but also fun and even sang us several songs which was lovely. Amazing experience to visit hill of Tara and the Loughcrew tombs in particular. Stopped for lunch in an authentic country pub.
Famous Shamous...aka Jim was a great guide and make the day amazing!
