Our tour guide, Alex, was so knowledgeable! It was a fantastic tour. So much history to learn. Alex kept the tour stops on-time and kept the group moving during this 10 hour tour. I highly recommend this experience if you love history!! Wear comfortable shoes. This tour is not for children.
Great tour! Alexander -- our tour guide was wonderful -- very knowledgable and knew his history. He also had a wonderful sense of humor. Highly recommend this tour
This was our favorite tour. Our guide David was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable and made it fun for all, even though it rained part of the day of the tour. The ancient history was fascinating, especially the 5000 year old cairn. However, this is not a good tour for those who are mobility challenged- there is quite a bit of uphill hiking. Those who can do it though are rewarded by amazing views of the Irish countryside.
Good variety of activities, lots of neat stuff to see. It's a great way to see a lot of sights comfortably and inexpensively.
Definitely one of the best tours I've taken, anywhere. Darren was personable, knowledgeable, unpretentious, yet professional.
This tour was fabulous! There was so much to see and so much to learn!
This was worth doing and I would highly recommend! First of all, only the locals know where to see what, how to get around, and fascinating details along the way. Tours are not always the best way to see the sights but for this one, without a doubt the best way to see the most!
Derek the driver/guide was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable. I definitely recommend this tour if you want to see some gorgeous scenery and learn some Irish history along the way.
Best tour guide of all Viator trips. he was charming and fun and full of interesting info. Really appreciated the lengths he went to in order to get us inside the burial ground at Loughcrew, but the whole tour was great fun.
This was more than I expected! I didn't realize the extent of this amazing tour! Caroline was our tour guide and Larry was our driver. We had an incredible time with them. Both very knowledgeable about everything! The scenery was breathtaking! Thank you very much for the incredible time!
Highly recommend this tour. You see a lot. Our guide, Alec, was very good. You are on a mid-to-large size comfortable bus - not one of the regular, large size tour buses. You are not being slighted. The tour goes down a number of one lane roads, off the beaten track. I'm not sure one of the full size buses could even go where you are taken. The Loughcrew Celtic Tombs visit involves going into one of the tombs. The tomb is not as large as the one at Newgrange, but you do get to go down a passage to an enclosed, inner area. Also, the view from the hill where the tombs are located is spectacular. I had been to the Hill of Tara before with another tour company. The stop there on this tour was better. Alec provided a great deal of information on the importance of Tara. And, the tour includes more . . . Trim Castle, etc. Great value!
Excellent exposure to the Celtic history.
Be prepared to climb! Not recommenced for the infirm.
Got to see parts of Ireland that I had not seen before, and our driver, Derrick, was extremely knowledgeable and informative. Made for a great tour
Very enjoyable trip. Lots of walking and some of it uphill but it was all beautiful and our tour guide was very informative.
A wonderful day trip from Dublin full of historically funny stories and Celtic marvels. I highly recommend this trip.

Excellent introduction to Irish historic sites. Liam literally will climb mountains for his group! Thanks!
Very interesting trip! The sites were awesome and so amazing to see such old historical things. The guide Wayne was very informative and entertaining! Very nice tour!
A beautiful and informative tour. Jim, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and quite humorous a pretty decent driver as well. The sites were gorgeous including a unscheduled stop at an ancient abbey along the way. The Boyne Valley is so picturesque although with quite the bloody history. The Celtic tombs were amazing, we were able to go into one which was guarded by local historians. Well worth the time and money :D I left with a thirst for more in depth knowledge of Irish history.
Great bus, great knowledgable and fun driver, amazing historic sites and back on time.
Mac, our driver/guide was witty and knowledgeable! Be prepared for cold to warm experiences during this tour and wear good shoes for hiking long distances through fields and hills! The countryside is beautiful and this tour leads you through many places to see history come to life.

This was a great tour! Great value for your money. My friend booked the tour for us so I wasn't sure what we were getting into but I was happily surprised! Matthew was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the history of each site. He gave us plenty of time to see the sites and did not rush the group. My favorite part was the Celtic Tombs. I can appreciate that they let us into the tombs to see the neolithic art. Overall I would highly recommend. Great day tour!
