We booked two tours with Michael--Boyne Valley, and Wicklow. These private tours were amazing. He made us feel at home every step of the way and took us to places that no coach tour would have ventured and that made our visit all the more personalized and exciting. Michael is incredibly personable and knowledgeable (while, to his credit, is not... More

Michael is a terrific guide and companion. He is thoroughly knowledgeable about the land and its ancient and modern phenomena. Because Michael himself is so naturally curious and good-natured it never seems like a tour or a lecture... more like a shared exploration. It must be added that his Audi sedan is also very comfortable! I booked a tour of... More

We had the good fortune to book a day tour of the Boyne Valley with Michael Fox. He showed the highest level of professionalism - prompt, extremely well-informed, patient, and efficient. Because of his expert knowledge of the territory and its history, we not only saw an impressive number of great historical sites (Newgrange, Boyne Battlefield, Monasterboice, etc.), we also... More

From the emails to arrange our day trip to the end of our day tour, Michael Fox was professional and expert in showing us the historical sites in Boyne Valley. He was able to judge how much time we could spend at different sites and adjust to our interests. We saw all the major Boyne Valley sites that you can... More

If you have read the other reviews of Michaels's services , you will notice how consistently his knowledge and time management skills are praised. He also happens to be very patient, pleasant and have a terrific sense of humor. He made sure that everyone had a great time including our two children, ages 12 and 14. He picked us up... More

We just got back to the US after 7 days in Ireland. We had several private tour experiences in the Southwest and West of Ireland. But our BEST tour was with Michael Fox of Boyne Valley Tours. He picked us up promptly at 8 am in Dublin and we were off! Because of his meticulous route planning, we were able... More

Four of us had a fabulous day with Michael who clearly conveyed his love of the valley and all of its attractions. We were blown away by Newgrange, a megalithic site predating Stonehenge and the pyramids, especially at the knowledge these people had to build a site that admits the sun inside at the solstice -- still today, the calculations...

An outstanding day long tour of the Boyne valley. Michael was friendly, personable and very knowledgeable. He was able to tailor the tour exactly to our interests, and be flexible as the weather changed. Nice car too! Highly recommended.

Having a private tour of Newgrange, the site of the Battle of the Boyne, the Hill of Tara, Bective Abbey, and Trim Castle was excellent in every respect. Michael Fox was committed to taking care of my husband and myself as if we were family members. His knowledge of the culture and history of the Boyne Valley is vast, and... More

Having booked a "package" tour to Ireland to celebrate our grandson's 16th Birthday, I decided to also surprise my husband by arranging a private tour to New Grange, a spot he'd read about and was anxious to see. Checking the Internet, I was drawn to the favorable reviews of Boyne Valley Tours and specifically to the reputation of Michael Fox.... More
