Amazing views, cool history!
Kira_C

We had the luck to see the cliffs without cloud cover. They’re spectacular! Gary knows a mountain of information, and we had a blast. Pickup was a half and hour before the tour started, and since we weren’t staying at one of the pickup stops, I picked the closest one to where we were staying; if I could do it again, I would have chosen to walk to Galway Tour Company to buy us another half an hour for breakfast since Galway is so small. The lunch stop pub served great, inexpensive food and drinks, and the extra stop Gary made on the way back was pricelessly beautiful.

Gary crushed it! As a native of the area, he was insightful and knowledgeable about the area and its history. Not to mention that he's charming and easy to talk to about things that were not covered in the tour. He's the one you want. We felt safe with him at the helm of the bus and learned a great deal on the tour. CHEERS GARY!

Great Landscape, beautiful stops - unnecessary Pub visit
Rebecca_H

Overall the experience was great. The driver drove safe, was fun - wasn't wearing a face mask though. We were slightly disappointed that we had spend more time on a pub visit than at the cliffs itself. Especially because it was overcrowded and everybody was placed on tables with strangers - which did not seem appropriate to the current Covid situation.
