We had a lot of fun on this tour with Carl. He sure knew his city especially the history. He lost my husband a few times when he was listing too many dates but I'm passionate about dates and history so I didn't mind so much. Carl showed great patience and control when a big group of about 25 French... More

There is so much interesting history with galway - I had no idea! If you're a bit squeamish you might not enjoy some of the stories haha, but it's worth the 2 hours to do it. I forget the name if our guide, but he knew quite a lot and was great at answering other peoples questions. Definitely do these... More

We recently spent 90 minutes with Fiona Brennan.She was both informative and funny. As she had stated from the onset- she wanted to have Galway charm us into returning- which it did (with her help).

Well, maybe not the only way, but with Fiona Brennan as your guide you will be educated and entertained. She is delightful with a love of her city and its history and lore that will make you wish it could be much longer. Plus, she tells you what to see that she couldn't get to in the 1&1/2 hrs. of...

The tour with Fiona Brennan was very informative and interesting. We found out more about Galway in a couple of hours than we could have done ourselves in a week! The enthusiasm Fiona has for Galway comes through loud and clear, don't hesitate to do this tour.

An excellent tour around Galway, expertly given by Fiona who you can tell does this due the love of it instead of it being merely a job. Her passion towards to Galway was obvious and you could tell that she was proud to show you round her town. I cannot recommend this tour highly enoughj.

Our tour with Fiona Brennan was fabulous. She was very funny, friendly, and knowledgeable. She taught us amazing history and had a great sense of humor. She was able to answer all of our questions. We made the mistake of taking the tour on our last day in Galway. There was so much to do that we were unaware of... More
