I told Michael I'd done a lot of reading about archeological sites in the Boyne Valley and that I wanted to see as many as possible in the two afternoons I had available around a December solstice visit to Newgrange. He picked up on my enthusiasm and never flagged, generously giving me far more than my money's worth. Informed, congenial,... More

Michael took myself, my brother, and 2 nephews on a fun filled day of visiting the Boyne Valley. His knowledge of all the sites was an unexpected treat. We really enjoyed the personal time with and ourselves. Really enjoyed Hill of Tara and how he guided us through time and explained how the Procession probably occurred many many years ago.... More

Such a great tour and the tour guides are brilliant. Went to Newgrange and Knowth. Such an interesting thing to see. The tour is long so it's great for a day out and such great value. Would highly recommend it

When we stepped off our international flight at 4:30am, we were wondering how we would handle an all day tour of the Boyne Valley with so little sleep. That was no problem! Michael Fox picked us up at our Dublin hotel promptly at 8am and we were off for a day that our group will always remember. We knew we... More

I took my first trip to Ireland last week with my niece and nephew. I booked the Boyne Valley Day Tour with Michael Fox a few weeks in advance. Michael picked us up promptly at our hotel in Dublin and he immediately started to fill us in on the sites that we saw along the way to the Boyne Valley.... More

We engaged Michael to take us to The Festival of Fire this Halloween. We came from USA for this special event and Michael did the reconnaissance of a guide, dedicated to his client's experience. Since this was a first for him he researched the event, kept us up to date via email, and he even went to the location the... More

We booked Boyne Valley Tours for two days in September when our cruise ship stopped in Dublin. We had only booked one private tour in the past as we thought they generally seemed too expensive. Michael and his tour made us rethink this attitude. We thought we received full value for our money and then some and we got to... More

We enjoyed a very informative and active day in the Boyne Valley and got to visit on the sites on our list. Michael took us up the Hill of Tara the the "banquet hall" so when we turned around to see where we'd come from, there was the entire valley and many counties as far as the eye could see.... More

As new travelers, we know we need as much guidance as we can get! Using the Boyne Valley Day Tours was one of our happiest choices! We were met promptly at the baggage claim by a smiling face and a name card to greet us after an overnight flight. while we were not perky, Michael gave us time to wake... More

I have read so many of the reviews of tours with Boyne Valley Day Tours - Michael Fox and was so excited about our day. I am a great history buff and as far as I am concerned no amount of information is too much information. That said, Michael has some knowledge of the area, but his knowledge is not... More

First and foremost I am a Tour Guide and Driver, I also have a keen interest in history, I am a former Council Member and Treasurer of the Meath Archaeological and Historical Society. I am personally very disappointed that my knowledge did not measure up to the expectations of the reviewer; however that is not the majority view. Some examples... More
