We met at the Harbour Hotel at the appointed time, but it was not Fiona it was someone standing in for her. He was definitely an experienced tour guide, from the sound of what he told us. He said he had never done the tour from this starting point and appeared very thrown off by it. We did not see... More

Neal was the most gracious knowledgable guide... Highly recommended it as soon as you get into town! It permitted us to plan the remainder of our trip.

We took TripAdvisor advice on this one and weren't disappointed. Fiona paced the tour well and was able to answer all our questions as well as share so many insights about the long history of Galway city. She also gave tips on what and where to follow up on our own after the tour finished. I was especially interested in... More

Fiona gives a wonderful overview of the city combining the old with the new and tells wonderful stories along the way. We came away with a much more vivid understanding of early Galway, its people and history. Having lived in the area for over 30 years, Fiona knows the city and all its hidden treasures including where to get the... More

I have wanted to go on a guided walking tour of Galway City for some time as Galway is such a charming and historical city. Fiona started off with just myself and three others and it was the most enjoyable and informative 90 minutes I have ever spent. Fiona has a natural talent for imparting information in an interesting but... More

On our first full day in Galway we took the 90-minute walking tour which was informative and provided a good orientation to Galway. Our guide pointed out historical buildings, explained the history and significance of the Claddagh ring, led us down streets and alleys, and told us the best place to enjoy chocolate desserts! Later in the day we visited... More

On our family trip we took advantage of the beautiful day to have Fiona of Galway Walking Tours take us on a roughly two hour tour of the city. It was fantastic. She was so knowledgeable about the history and you could tell that she cared about sharing it with us. We had a great time. My mother and brother... More
