Great tour-enjoyed it very much
Maureen_G, Jun 2022
Enjoyed the narration during the tour. Enough information to make it interesting but not over load of facts and figures.
Not worth it with one bus only running.
Bob_C, Mar 2022
With the winter schedule the long waits for the bus precluded seeing things. The driver pleasantly agreed with us it wasn’t worth riding the bus. We walked and cabbed everything and it was fine and better without worrying about your bus. At least with only one bus running it’s a waste.

Stay completely away from this company .. specifically picked my day to go on the tour .( tuesday). my father and sister were left walking around trying to find the ticket office.. only to find out that the company only runs on the weekend.. they still took my money and no customer service got back in touch with me .. appalling service ..

Worst experience ever! We waited 2.5 hours for a bus that never showed up. Contacted the company and no response. Waiting for a refund since we won’t be able to use the tickets. Should have never sold them to us when bus wasn’t running. Would never recommend.
Fantastic tour of Galway
