Don't hesitant to take a tour of the Boyne Valley with Michael Fox. You'll not only see the incredible sights of this region but also get a real sense of what it's like to live there. He's very well informed and willing to tailor the day to your specific interests. I would recommend seeing Newgrange on your own and then... More

My emails with Michael while planning the tour were always promptly returned and very informative. On our tour day we were picked up at our hotel and driven to the Boyne Valley to visit the sights described by other reviewers. Michael is very easy going and knows the in depth history of the Boyne Valley and its sights as he... More

We had such a wonderful day with Michael...a day that, although packed with great sights, was surprisingly relaxing and well-paced. Michael has a wonderful sense of humor and organized the day so that we did not have to contend with crowds at all. He has a deep knowledge of the beautiful sites of the Boyne Valley and his enthusiasm was... More

Michael Fox is the consummate professional; he picked us up on time from our B&B and organized our tour to maximize the the time at each site and avoided major crowds for the most part. We visited 5 sites--New Grange Neolithic site, the Battle of the Boyne site, the Hills of Tara, the Monastaboice, and Trim Castle. Michael is very... More

A great day with Michael, from the prompt morning pick-up at our hotel to the informative visits to all the specific sights we had requested. He will work with you for the best personal agenda, and do so in a thoughtful, relaxing manner. It was, especially, a great surprise to meet his artistic wife, Bernie, and see (and purchase) her...

Michael is a knowledgeable and caring guide. He picked us up promptly at our hotel right when he stated. Our first stop was Newgrange, which Michael is an expert and runs a popular website on. Michael was able to get us a small discount on the tickets and we were placed in the first tour of the day. Great planning... More

I and my wife took a private tour in the Boyne Valley with Michael. The day was well organized, entertaining and fascinating. Michael showed a deep knowledge of the area as well as flexibility in finding sites to our taste, such as a craft farm. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He is a good driver, navigating the narrow Irish roads.

We (multi-generational family of 4) spent a day with Michael Fox exploring the wonders the Boyne Valley has to offer. Much of what we did was investigate the prehistoric sights and Monasterboice, but Michael also included additional activities intended specifically to entertain/educate the youngest member of the group (age 5). I have had small group tours in many places in... More

Our tour guide & bus driver, Mac, was just fantastic. You need to be quite agile & in good shape because there is quite a lot of walking but worth every step. This tour covers a lot of acres & miles. Anyone interested in geology, archaeology, ancient history will love this tour. You visit 6 sites & stop for coffee... More
