Trip was well received. But hotel in Galway was not booked when we arrived to check in. Viator customer service was clueless and not helpful. After several hours we got the matter straight with the touring company. Would rate Viator customer service as a zero

I really enjoy this tour, traveling by train and coach during both days was very nice, the time was very well organized and the tour guides very knowledgeable and pleasant. Cliffs of Moher, Galway Bay and Connemara really worth visiting, amazing places.

I like the combination of train and bus. Our guide was Bob and he did a wonderful job. He showed us some turf peat at Bunratty Castle. The Cliffs of Moher were beautiful. We arrived in Galway about 5:00 so any touring was on our own. The next day was on the bus through the Connemara region to Kylemore Abbey. Please note this trip does not include a stop to Connemara marble store in Moycullen or viewing of the green marble mountains in Clifden. I though it did. I loved the views at the Kilary Fjord.

The trip was nice. The Hotel was great. I was disappointed in the second day as the description of the Connemara portion said we would be going to Clifden and the Sky Road, neither of which we did, and these were two of the main reasons I chose a tour that included Connemara. You really don't get to experience much in Galway as you don't get in there before most things are closed.

This was a wonderful two-day tour with charming, knowledgeable, personable guides! We also went on a Paddywagon Tour later In our trip and we'd recommend this company over theirs. We felt like this tour took us to great spots, gave us enough time to explore, and weren't focused on just the touristy stops. Great tour!

Cliffs of Moher is great but the travel time from Dublin is quite long. Don't want to make it a day trip so choose to stay at Galway and go Connemara the next day. Arrangement of Railtour is seamless and Galway is a lovely city, But Connemara isn't really impressive.

I highly recommend this tour! Definitely take the 2 days and stay the night in Galway. The first day has breathtaking views of the Cliffs of Moher and you think it can't get better but the 2nd day tour is so beautiful! I want to take the trip all over again!
