      A great way to see the sights.
      A great way to see the park. My daughter and I booked the experience and I'm so glad that we did. Although it was a little bit pricey, it was money well spent. We saw loads of the park while ride horses for the first time, what could be better. The instructors were excellent and really knowledgeable about the area.

      Rafting the upper Sac with Jack
      My wife and I recently spent a couple of days rafting with Jack Trout on the upper Sacramento River. The rafting experience was great and the fishing was fun. So different to our lake fishing in Tasmania. Jack was great, the fishing was fun. Lots of beautiful fit rainbows. Staggering on the rocks in the Mcleod on day three was fun. Big fish in the pools but a bit beyond me! If you get to fish with Jack you should. Deer, squirrels and rainbows. People talk about the bears, we saw none! Must go back for more...

      Wow! Wow! and Wow!
      We had the best time! Gabriel was amazing, the tour was amazing, the goats were amazing. My family 12 year old triplets, 16 year old and Mom and Dad had the best time with Gabriel. He was kind and knowledgeable. The tour was perfect, the goats were the best!!!!!! The cheese is to die for. If we ever come back we would do this in a heart beat. Thank you Gabriel for being so amazing to my family, you gave them a core memory and I will forever be in your debt.

      No-show Vendor
      Vendor was a NO-SHOW. After confirming twice I showed up at the shop, waited 25 minutes and phoned the number twice. Never answered, never showed up. Fortunately Westport Bike Hire was just down the road and they rented us great bikes.

      Wild Atlantic Way tour - fantastic!
      Gerry was our tour guide and he was absolutely the best. Loved his jokes, storytelling and the information he provided on the various sites. The tour was a really full day including a trip to Inisheer by the ferry and a view from the water of the Cliffs of Moher.

      VENDER NO SHOW
      The vender was a NO SHOW. Repeated attempts to contact. Fortunately was able ro hire an excellent e-bike from Westport Cycles and had nice ride along trail. Newport to Westport section is not well marked and much on the busy road.

      Aran Island is fun with shopping for their handmade gifts
      This tour was great. Aran Island was fantastic and you can visit the few shops on Aran Island that make the Aran sweaters/socks/blankets etc. It was fun to walk around the island, grab a cup of coffee and rhubarb/strawberry cobbler (yum); the residents that staff the small shops and make the products were friendly, nice and fun to visit with. The Cliffs of Moher were impressive and it ha a wonderful gift shop with museum like section that was very interesting. Lots of walking up the hills but the steps and walkways were nice and the pictures you get are amazing. Aran Island also has horse drawn carriages you can rent/ride in; as well as bikes you can rent or small vehicles for hire to take you up to the castle

      Very fun, relaxing and controlled experience
      For 2 nervous beginners, the trainers couldn't have been more welcoming and professional in putting us at ease and pucking just the right horse for us. Add to that, the stunning scenery in one of the most areas in Ireland and it really was an unforgettable experience and I can't wait to do it again sometime.

      Aran Islands and Cliffs Cruise Tour
      We took the The Aran Islands & The Cliffs Cruise tour with Galway Tour Company. I give Dave, our driver, and the tour company my highest recommendation. The tour even exceeded our expectations. It could not have been better. The Aran Islands and Cliffs are truly breathtaking and made even better with our tour guide Dave. He was very informative, fun, and kept us entertained and laughing on the bus, and played fantastic music while not giving us information. The tour was long, from 09:30 to 19:30, but totally worth it. We were still ready for more when we got off the bus at the end. I highly recommend the tour and Dave our guide.

    One of the best trips we have taken. Paul and David were fantastic and though it rained most of the day, we had a blast. St Patrick's Island was so surreal. It was cold and rainy and some of us were prepared. Wish we could have seen more of Ashford Castle and the little village of Cong but some of our were drenched and the rain kept us from walking around too much. I would definitely do this again.

    The cruise was one of the best I have been on as the information by on-board commentary and by guides on the island as we wandered to the two main church ruins was excellent. The ruins date back through centuries but one of them is still in consecrated use. The lake is lovely with many small islands and stunning views surrounding it. The boat was comfortable with a nice wee bar. Lovely and not to be missed on a rain-free day!
