If I was reviewing the tour itself -- meaning where I jumped on the tour bus in Galway, saw the sights, and returned to Galway -- this would be a 5 star review no doubt. Our guide was incredibly informative and hilarious. He told us all the dos and donts and lots of anecdotes and jokes in between stops. Kylemore Abbey never disappoints this was my second time to see it and you get a solid two hours there. Just enough time to look around, take pics, eat a little lunch, and peruse the gift shop. The stops in Cong and the fjord were also a lot of fun.

Where there was a little confusion was the shuttle service from Dublin to Galway. I wasn't completely aware that this was separate from the tour. I get on the bus with my mom, and no one really explained that we were getting on strictly a transportation service from point A to point B -- so we were a little unsure. All was good when we were transitioned to the tour bus in Galway, but arriving when we did, we were the last to get on, therefore we couldn't sit together. Not a huge deal, but worth mentioning. The biggest issue I had was returning to Galway. We were told to go to the bus station at a certain time but didn't have a ticket or a tour guide with us, so we weren't sure if we would have to pay or if we were getting on the right bus or not.

All ended well -- we made it. But the confusion was unsettling for a bit.

The way before our tour finally started has been a bit exhausting and all in all not well planed, but the tour itself has been amazing.
Our tour guide Michael told us a lot about the area, stories about the families and the names. He was a lovely and funny tour guide and got us safely back to Galway.
