We did a super walking tour with a smily, quick witted, friendly and informative Brian Nolan. His pace was easy going in the most western city in Ireland. He spoke of the culture, history, artistic and musical heritage of this vibrant, thriving city. He was a breath of fresh air on a fast paced trip. Definitely a must to do... More

We took the 1:30 bus to the Cathedral and got off. We were supposed to be picked up at 3:05. The bus never showed up. We had to walk back to town.

This coach tour was for Connemara and Cong. The driver was rude to the guests and :laid down the law" about his rules and regulations for running "his" bus. He made sure that everyone knew he was the boss and that whatever he said - goes. We were so put off with the arrogance , we wanted to leave the... More

Beautiful scenery and sights - and the weather cooperated! Excellent itinerary. Ron, the driver, was great - good driver and very helpful. Comfortable bus too. Made several unscheduled photo stops and a couple of potty breaks. Stopped for lunch at a reasonable time also. Overall a very enjoyable tour.

Connor Reardan is very knowledgeable and an interesting guide. Not a strenuous walk, but saw much of the city and learned it's history. Highly recommend!

It was a pleasant change to not have to drive for a while so we took a tour of the Burren and the Cliffs of Mohr. Ayman was a wonderful and very knowledgable driver who gave us tons of history on each stop and areas as we passed.

I had a great time with Galway Tours seeing both Connemara and the Cliffs of Moher with both Mike D and Mike O. Wonderful stories and a beautiful view. Courteous to those with plans to catch buses back home.

We booked a group on a trip to the Burren and The Cliffs of Moher. Great experience, but the overall coach ride was no more than that: an hour faffing about before we set off as we had to pick up others, drop people onto different buses, etc. Then each stop we were given "ten minutes". Next time, I'll book... More
