seeing the sights and hearing the history

We had a great trip to hook head taking in the sights on the way. Really scenic area and lots of history told to us by Sean. Well worth doing if you are in the area of Waterford

The Hook Head Safari tour was wonderful. Both Sean, who was on holiday and John who conducted the "safari" were amazing! John shared a lot of wonderful history reagrding Ireland and showed us some amazing sites. I'd recommend the tour to anyone who is near the area and you have the 4 hours for the full experience :)

A wonderful trip with a pleasant knowledgeable guy named Sean. He took us on a tour of the area and gave us wonderful insights, with stories peppered with humour. Anyone wanting to know more about this part of Ireland could not do better than go on a safari with Sean. This is a pleasant way to spend a few hours.... More

the hook head safari was the highlight of our holiday. As a family of 4 with 12 and 9 year olds Sean kept us all entertained and we enjoyed his gifts and surprises and especially his excellent knowledge. We would have never had seen half of it without him. Highly recommended.

I spent some time in Wexford early in July and the highlight of our trip was the our tour of the Hook Peninsula . The scenery is breathtaking particularly from the top of the Hook Lighthouse . Séan is an excellent guide and a mine of information! I would certainly recommend this tour and hope to do it again .
