Ever since I heard about Newgrange Passage tomb in a Celtic Archeaology class years ago, I have wanted to visit it and the related passage tombs in the Boyne Valley. Michael's expertise as a tourguide not only got us to the first tour of the day at Newgrange, but to such sites as Fourknocks, which we were able to enter... More

Our (family of 5 including 3 teenage daughters) booked an all day private tour with Derek to see the Boyne Valley. We did not want the stress of driving and trying to figure out our way around to interfere with our experience. Derek was extremely friendly, witty, easy to talk to and professional. He picked us up at our hotel,... More

We booked with this company for 2 days. Our first day was with Derek out to the Cliffs of Moher and other sites in the area. Michael took us the second day to the Giants Causeway, Belfast and the general area. We can't say enough good things about the company, and Derek and Michael. They could not have been more... More

Michael Fox is an amazing guide and wonderful person with great knowledge of the area where he lives. He did all and a bit more to meet our requests and wishes that weren't easy to meet. This is well worth the money and I strongly recommend his tour. If you are heading to Dublin and want to learn more about... More

After reading all the glowing reviews of Michael Fox, we decided to book a one day trip to the Boyne Valley from Dublin. Michael was very prompt in answering emails and helped us plan an itinerary before we set foot in Ireland. That allowed us to read about the places we'd visit and of course find new places to add....

Michael Fox is an amazing guide for exploring Ireland’s Boyne Valley. My son and I wanted a more personalized and in-depth experience of this unique area of Ireland and that is exactly what Michael delivered. For a tour that is customized, informative, fun, enlightening, and something that you will never get from a tour bus, booking with Michael is the... More

I never met Michael Fox but he offered me a great deal of assistance in planning my visit to Trim and County Meath. I reached out to him in the early part of July, 2015 to check his availability to take my husband and I on a tour. His reviews on tripadvisor are glowing and with good reason. Michael could... More

I cannot recommend highly enough Boyne Valley Tours and Michael Fox, the tour guide! We are seasoned travelers and have done many such tours in many different parts of the world but Michael Fox is one of the best you will ever have the joy of meeting. We visited several ancient and historical sites in a day packed full of... More

My wife and I and a tag along friend enjoyed 2 days with Michael Fox. He is everything you could ask for in a guide. He was prompt, knowledgeable, excellent sense of humor, and just pleasant to be around. The Boyne Valley is a must see if you are in the Dublin area for any length of time. It is... More

As first time visitors to Ireland, my husband and I wanted to sit back and relax while someone else managed the transportation, tickets, and agenda--Michael did just that. He picked us up at our hotel promptly at 8am. By 9am he had us on the first tour bus to Newgrange. Later we visited Monasterboice, the Hill of Tara, Bective Abbey,... More
