Loved the knowledge and courtesy imparted by the guide. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip to anyone.
My husband and I had a blast! Brian was a knowledgable and thoughtful tour guide, and we got just what we wanted.
This tour was amazing! The driver was really friendly and funny, and Newgrange was fantastic. The best part was that there was plenty of time at Newgrange so you didn't feel rushed.
Wonderful day the tour guide made all the difference. Learned so much and a greater understanding of the history.
Really great tour, great guide, and an excellent combination. There were only 7 people in our group (this was in April, so I don't know if there would be more during a different time of year), so it was a great size. The tour guide (Colin) even sang an Irish ditty on the bus ride! All around great!
These sites were fantastic and a must see, considering their proximity to Dublin. Though we had rain at Monasterboice, it did not last long and it was well worth getting wet to experience the site. The tour guide was very informative and entertaining. I thought the tomb at Newgrange was a little cramped with the number of people let in at the same time, but feel lucky to have seen it at all. Overall, a unique experience rich with history.
The tour is great for people who value history... incredible sites, and the tour guide was hilarious, really a cool trip to take.
A deligtful enjoyable trip from a top tour guide with superior knowledge of all the sights on offer. A day well worth doing, steeped in history I surely recommend this to anybody intrested in the history of Ireland.
Family trip with 2 adults and 4 children ages 6-11. We had a great time. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and filled us in with fun filled facts along the way to New Grange and onwards later to the cemetery, that were rich with history and heritage in reference to the Boyne valley, river region, and the people who live along it. Lovely way to spend a day and reach back to a much earlier stage in Ireland.
This trip was a great time. The tombs at Newgrange are really well preserved.
Excellent experience. The tickets were easily printed at our hotel and the Day Trip was fantastic. Actually one of the best day tours that we have ever done.
An excellent trip, with a very lively guide with strong opinions on the history, politics, and religion of Ireland. At the megalith, the guides were very helpful and well-informed. HOWEVER, the instructions on how to catch the bus were very poor. The bus does not say Viator or Newgrange, the waiting place is INSIDE the tourist centre, not outside as the instructions imply, the announcement that the trip is leaving is only made inside, and refers to the Tour Operator not Viator, and as a result we waited for half an hour in the wrong place looking for the wrong bus, and missed the trip. They did reschedule us, and many days later.we did enjoy the trip. Recommendation to Viator: tell people that they have to REGISTER, INSIDE the tourist office, and make an announcement OUTSIDE.
Our trip and tour was great! Our tour guide was so knowlegable and interesting.
Newgrange was an awesome experience especially during the reenactment of the winter soulstice. Monasterboice is small place but then the high crosses alone is worth the trip. The guide was very informative, engaging and funny.
the guide was excellent. i think his name was connor, he was very knowledgable, enthusiastic, and friendly. i enjoyed it very much.
This was well worth the cost, and I higly recommend as a chance to get out of Dublin and into the history of Ireland. Tour Guide was terrific ande very knowedgeable. Only negative is that you do not see both tombs at New Grange. I would recommend that they make the tour a few hours longer start a little earlier go later so that you can see both. Monasterboice was splendid as well.
This trip was incredible. Awesome guide who really shared some of the history of Ireland. Well planned and well delived except for pick up at our hotel as stated. Didn't happen but the hotel staff saved us.
This trip was outstanding and the bus driver's discriptions of the crosses at Monasterboice was some of the best descriptions of a peice of art I have ever heard.
Great tour! Lots of wonderful information and history as well as, the one-of-a-kind attraction, Newgrange and experience!
