Everything was beautiful! Aran islands were the highlight of the trip! It is a long day in the bus but you observe fantastic scenic views. For the ferry, make sure you to motion sickness pills because the waves are rough!

The views were stunning both from the boat at the base of the cliffs and then later as we strolled around the top. And the Aran Islands were very interesting as we rolled along in an old horse cart.

A fantastic tour, made special by Padther, our knowledgeable guide. First a boat trip to Inisheer, then the return boat ride visited the Cliffs of Moher from the water. Once back at the bus, we then visited the Cliffs from land, which was also memorable. Highly recommend this tour!

We had a great time on the tour! It was a long day but the pacing was good - 2 hour scenic bus ride to the dock, a short ferry ride to the island then 1.5ish hours to explore and grab lunch. There was the option to pay €10 for a carriage out tractor tour, or to hire bikes and guide yourself but we elected to walk and check out the 3 pubs on the island. The return ferry takes about 45-60 minutes and loops out under the cliffs for spectacular views. Then back to the bus for a short 10 minute ride to the visitor center at the top of the cliffs, where we took in the views for another 80 minutes. We took a different route back for the 2 hour return journey, but we were pretty tired by this point. Some things to keep in mind: there are no bathrooms for the first and last 2 hours on the bus. There were cafes and stores available on the island and at the top of the cliffs - everywhere took card except for the €10 needed for the island tour. Our bus driver John was fantastic, excellent commentary on the bus and super helpful for navigating the stops. We drove our rental car all over Ireland before this tour and we're very glad to have had a professional tour for this trip.

Extremely beautiful
Joshua_W

This tour was easily one of my favorites. The Cliffs were beautiful and great to see from the boat and from land, but the highlight for me was really the going to Aran Islands' Inisheer. We were blown away at how beautiful Inisheer was and that the water and the beach looked like the Caribbean. There is a lot of fun exploring to do throughout the island and have a couple options of doing so: you can take a tractor ride, take a horse and buggy, or rent a bike. My friend and I opted to rent the bike, which was great, but make sure you are okay going up some pretty steep hills because it wears you out big time. You can really get lost in this island's beauty. The drive to Doolin to get the ferry is pretty rough with a lot of twists and turns and hills, so be prepared and maybe take some dramamine if you get motion sickness (I was also in the back of the bus). Our tour guide could have been better, but he was certainly not bad, just a bit of a minimalist in his approach. Do not hesitate to go for this tour to really experience some great sights and beauty, so long as the weather holds out, it is 100% worth it.

The view is heavenly, whether on the bus, on the island or on the cliff top. The driver and guide John is very professional, humorous and knowledgeable. Also a big big thank for helping us find my son's phone lost on the bus. Unfortunately, I cannot comment on the view of the cliff from the ship because I was too seasick to even get out of my seat. It is a rough ride, keep that in mind. But that is not the tour company's fault of course. Do it when you are at Galway.

Such a beautiful experience!(except for the ride in the ferry over to Aran Islands) was pretty rough. We did not get to do the cruise by the Cliffs because of rough seas but the top of the cliffs made it all worthwhile! our tour guide John was wonderful!
