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

This review is well overdue since our tour with Michael was one year ago (June 2014). Better late than never. We had already been travelling around Ireland on our own for 11 days, and the tour was arranged with Michael for our last full day. One of the best decisions I've ever made. Not only were we very taken with... More

My husband and I went to Dublin for our honeymoon and we wanted a more personal experience so we decided to take a private tour with Michael. He took us on the Boyne Valley tour and we had a fantastic time. He picked us up promptly at our hotel in his sleek and clean Audi. We knew immediately by his... More

Michael gave us a terrific tour of the Boyne Valley. As a tour guide, myself, I can recognize a good tour when I experience one. He knows his history and we felt very comfortable with his driving. I highly recommend this tour.

I shared this tour with another couple last month as a shore excursion from a cruise ship. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience. Michael Fox was very experienced and made sure the day went very smoothly. He arrived at NewGrange right when it opened so that we were on the first shuttle. He had reservations at lunch so... More

What else can I say other than this was our best day in Ireland! Michael goes way above and beyond. All of the other reviews are spot on, so I'll try not to reiterate their comments. Ultimately, Michael could and should charge much more because it would still be worth it.

I had a wonderful day with Michael touring various sites in the Boyne Valley. Michael picked me up at my hotel in Dublin and we arrived in time for the first tour at Newgrange. We then toured other sites in the area, including Hill of Tara, Bective Abbey, Mellifont Abbey, Monasterboice, Hill of Slane and Trim Castle. We even drove... More

What an amazing day in Boyne Valley with Michael. We not only hit the highlights, but he customized the day around additional sites that I wanted to see.

My daughter and I had a wonderful day with Michael - he was knowledgeable, personable and accommodating. Door to door service to our Dublin hotel, comfortable vehicle and we even had a sunny day. I would highly recommend Michael for a concise tour of this region, history lesson included.
