This is a fantastic tour of the 5,000 year old burial tombs of Newgrange and Knowth. The history that is taught by the guides is wonderful and they can answer all your questions. If you are afraid of tight spaces do not go on this one as the burial tomb is a very confined space. I would highly recommend this... More

We were in Dublin City for a long weekend. Mike's tour of Boyne Valley captured all the significant sights we could accomplish in an effecient time frame, all while being escorted in his Audi sedan with Mike's informative narrative of Ireland, the local geography, history, culture,... Thanks Mike.

Michael brought us to wonderful sights in the Boyne Valley in his top of the range Audi A8. He lives in the Boyne Valley and it shows, he knows every inch of it. I highly recommend Michael's Boyne Valley Tour.

We were a party of four friends who took Michael's "Boyne Valley" tour in September. It was just a lovely day, full of interesting sights and commentary from Michael. He completely customizes your tour so you can wander wherever you like - we did New Grange, Hill of Tara and a private labyrinth, along with a nice lunch, tea, and... More

Three friends and I took Michael's day tour to Boyne Valley on September 10 and what a fantastic day! We saw so much - Newgrange, Monasterboice, Hill of Tara, Trim Castle, Bective Abbey, Mellifont Abbey - and this day was an absolute highlight of my Europe trip. I really enjoyed being on a smaller, more personal tour, than being on... More

We arrived in port in Dublin off of the cruise ship Celebrity Infinity and we had previously booked a private tour of the Wicklow Mountains and surrounding areas for a full day with Michael Fox. He picked us up at the port in an Audi A8 and provided us with a comprehensive full day tour of the area which included... More

I have to give credit to Michael, he made the difference between a great tour, and a SPECTACULAR tour! Our visit to the Boyne Valley was fun, educational, and completely hassle free. Being that Michael is from the Boyne Valley, he was so knowledgeable about the area and all of its history. I literally felt like I had fallen back... More

Michael met us on time at our hotel and started with a visit to Newgrange. Since he is an expert at these tours, we arrived in advance of the tour buses. We could tour the site and spend some time in the exhibits without the crush of the tour groups. Our day included visits to the Battle of the Boyne... More

I had told Michael I wanted to write him a review of our tour since we had such a great time - I wanted others to know of his great work. I told him I could only write the review once I got back to the U.S. since I am still in Ireland for 13 more days. However, I could... More

We wanted to see the ancient monuments in the Boyne Valley during our short stay in Dublin and selected Michael Fox and Boyne Valley Private Tours on the Internet from Australia. We could not have been happier with the personal attention and very professional service that we had from Michael. He knows everything there is to know about the area... More
