This tour was absolutely fabulous. Michael is pure gentleman and his knowledge of the Boyne Valley is amazing. If you are planning a trip to Ireland and want to see some real history then take his tour.

My wife and I retained the services of Michael Fox on 3/1/14 for a full day private tour of the Boyne Valley. The bottom line is that both my wife and myself had a wonderful time with Michael. The only regret that we had is that we didn't book two days with him with the second day being another part... More

My wife and I took a tour with Michael Fox last year in June and it was easily the highlight of the trip to Ireland. He picked us up in his nice comfortable car and drove us to Newgrange and Knowth. Before the tour he took us to the visitor center and explained to us all the exciting things to... More

We had a wonderful tour and a great day with Michel Fox . He picked us up promptly at 8:00 AM at the Merrion Hotel and spent the whole day touring the Boyne Valley region with us, showing each corner, telling us interesting facts about the region. He is really knowledgeable about Irish history and knows the best places to... More

We had a great day in spite of the weather deteriorating by the afternoon. Michael planned the day to meet our priorities and we enjoyed getting well off the beaten track and seeing a variety of passage tombs, abbeys, giant donkeys and new born lambs. Highly recommended!

Ireland through the prehistoric times to the modern era through the words of an amazing tour guide and the pleasant view that Boyne Valley had to offer us. Particularly loved the Newgrange tomb which showed the burial sites inside a well designed ancient tomb in the form of a cross inside. Amazing day and a much recommended tour.

A trip to Ireland is incomplete without sharing the Irish history, ruins, Abbeys and antiquities with Derek Smith, Beautiful Meath Tour Guide. His downhome quiet countenance adds to the appreciation of the incredible historic sights he shares with you. Our tour was enlightening, comfortable, and fun. Think of it like this....without Derek's knowledge and insight, it's just a pretty green... More

Michael Fox was a wonderful guide and we had a fantastic day with him in the Boyne Valley. We brought our 6 year old and he tailored our day to her interests. The Boyne Valley is beautiful and michael's tour provided a great supplement to our touring in Dublin. Newgrange was spectacular as were the Celtic crosses , the Hill... More

You'll be lucky indeed if you can book Michael for a private tour. He picked us up and dropped us off...in between, we learned so much about Ireland from prehistoric to modern times, and we saw all the remnants! Couldn't have asked for a better day, a better tour, or a better guide. Smart and so much fun. This was... More
