We were looking for a ghost tour and this tour popped up without much details, so we emailed Brian who replied right away and we ended up with a personalized tour of Galway's history with added ghost stories. After the tour we ended up at O'Connor's pub in Salthill which was the cherry on top. Fun filled info-packed tour with... More

We did a super walking tour with a smily, quick witted, friendly and informative Brian Nolan. His pace was easy going in the most western city in Ireland. He spoke of the culture, history, artistic and musical heritage of this vibrant, thriving city. He was a breath of fresh air on a fast paced trip. Definitely a must to do... More

We took the 1:30 bus to the Cathedral and got off. We were supposed to be picked up at 3:05. The bus never showed up. We had to walk back to town.

This coach tour was for Connemara and Cong. The driver was rude to the guests and :laid down the law" about his rules and regulations for running "his" bus. He made sure that everyone knew he was the boss and that whatever he said - goes. We were so put off with the arrogance , we wanted to leave the... More

Beautiful scenery and sights - and the weather cooperated! Excellent itinerary. Ron, the driver, was great - good driver and very helpful. Comfortable bus too. Made several unscheduled photo stops and a couple of potty breaks. Stopped for lunch at a reasonable time also. Overall a very enjoyable tour.

It was a pleasant change to not have to drive for a while so we took a tour of the Burren and the Cliffs of Mohr. Ayman was a wonderful and very knowledgable driver who gave us tons of history on each stop and areas as we passed.
