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!
Loved this tour and tour guide. Very informative and very knowledgeable. Stopped for lunch and was told about 3 or 4 places to eat with a great variety to choose from. Highly recommend this tour group.
This was one of the best tours, crammed with history, that we took on our recent trip to Ireland. Our guide was amazing and full of factual detail. He took us to Bective Abbey, which wasn't on the scheduled tour, because it was on the way - beautiful site. My spouse and I have some mobility issues, so getting in and out of the van was somewhat difficult. A step stool would have been helpful. Please note that there is a great deal of walking and very steep hills to climb on this tour it is not a trip for anyone who has serious mobility issues. We were able to do all except the hill at Loughcrew. I recently had a knee replacement and was only able to get about 2/3 of the way up to the site however, if we had had more time, I surely would have been able to get to the top. The total trip took about 10 hours. If you love ancient and religious history, you will love this tour.
It was GRAND! We loved that we spent so much time off the bus exploring and learning about the culture and history of the area. Our guide Derrick was accommodating knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great day in the Irish countryside.
Despite on and off rain, this was a tremendous tour. We saw so many amazing sites as part of the tour - the Hill of Tara, Loughcrew Tombs, Monasterboice, and Trim Castle - but our driver/guide also pointed out a number of other fascinating places along the way including Newgrange and Becktive Abbey. The guide was personable and knowledgeable. He also took great care of his tourists - we had two very old ladies and one young woman with who were challenged by walking the steep climbs but our guide made sure to stay with them, encouraging them and keeping them engaged in the trip. He went out of his way to make sure that we all were able to experience the many wonderful sites this trip offered. The only thing I wish we had been able to do was to go into Newgrange. But that's just another reason to go back to Ireland!
Fantastic tour!! Great tour guide, Derek very informative and friendly. Very comfortable size group of only 15. Tour included a great balance of scenery, small villages, history. Highly recommend this tour.
We had a fantastic day discovering ancient Ireland. A very knowledgeable guide and a small group made for a perfect day. Beware, there are some fairly serious hills to climb, but totally worth it when you arrive
We loved, loved, loved this tour! Our guide was fantastic, informative and engaging. The rich history, the preservation of the sites and the ability to explore them all was fun and fascinating. We enjoyed the little restaurant at Loughcrew and how the guide would stop at sites along the way to our next destination for photo opportunities and provide a little bit of background on it. We highly recommend this tour for the adventurous!
Excellent Tour! Our tour guide Matthew was extremely knowledgeable. Beautiful drive. I would highly recommend this tour!
This was an excellent tour that provided a very informative introduction to Celtic Ireland. Jim was an outstanding tour guide! He was knowledgeable, well-organized, and entertaining. Anyone planning on visiting Ireland who wishes to better understand its history and culture should take this tour.
A great experience with guide Chris. So much I did not know about Ireland's past was explained very well.
Excellent: the driver, loughcrew tombs, Unscheduled stop to Bective abbey. It was excellent value for money - especially compared to the M.G new grange/Tara tour I did. However, we did not: get a guided tour around drogheda, go to Ardee, or even get into trim castle and #39;s keep. But I throughly enjoyed.
Great tour guide which made to a wonderful trip. Darryl gave us so much history, showed us many little sites along the route and made it a fun day. This is a must do!
This tour was quite good. There are two things to note: the tour guide was quite punctual so if you are late you would be left behind!!!! Also wear suitable shoes... especially with grips because you will be doing a lot of walking up and down hills and it was quite slippery and muddy. I fell on the beginning of the tour and basically had to walk around with a huge mud stain on the back of my jeans. The tour guide Carolyn was quite knowledgeable on the history of Ireland. It was also engaging and fun. She made little jokes and played music on the tour to keep our interest from site to site. We also made a lot more stops than what is mentioned which was quite nice.I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who doesn't mind some walking.
