Our Guide Michael picked us up at our hotel promptly at 8:30 as arranged - he was waiting for us when we stepped off the elevator. His Audi A8 was pristinely clean, and we headed off to the Boyne Valley. We visited several attractions there... abbeys, a castle, the battle of Boyne battlefield, and the highlight of the day, New... More

Five members of my family were picked up promptly at eight (8:00) o'clock on December 10, 2014 by Derek Smith, our tour guide for the day in the Boyne Valley. He is absolutely a fount of knowledge about the Boyne Valley. He grew up there and played amongst some of the ruins we visited. We rode in his comfortable Mercedes... More

I have been very late in writing this review, but I am no less enthusiastic about our tour of the Boyne Valley. Our family trip to Ireland was fantastic! The day tour with Michael was definitely a highlight. My wife and 2 boys, ages 13 and 10, found all of the sights very interesting when described by Michael. We all... More

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
