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

Our family of four--ranging in age from early 70's down to a 5 year-old little girl--all agree that our tour with Michael Fox was a highlight of our vacation in Ireland. Michael was very friendly and was excellent at finding spots that kept our young daughter happy and engaged along the way. Michael is extremely knowledgeable about the area and... More

Michael Fox's Tour...Brilliant! This Tour was a high point of our three weeks in Ireland. For the first two weeks we traveled all around the Republic and NI on a wonderful bus tour that took us to virtually all of the main tourist sites. We travelled from Dublin to Waterford, then to Killarney and the Ring of Kerry, Cliffs of... More

Both myself and my 16 year old grandson enjoyed his day-tour immensely. Mr. Fox was prompt, personable, efficient and knowledgeable about all the venues we visited. He and I had exchanged photos of ourselves so that we would recognize each other at 8AM at my Dublin hotel and he was waiting for us right on time. His car was a... More

Wonderful day with Derek Smith. He went above and beyond to make this the center of our recent visit. The beauty of this area is only surpassed by the rich history and spiritual calling of this magnificent secret. It is hard to fathom that there is so little publicity for a treasure the world has yet to discover. Definitely will... More

My wife and I had little time in Ireland, but many interests. Thanks to Derek Smith of Beautifulmeath.com, and Boyne Valley Tours, we were able to arrange a private day tour with Derek, that met as many of our objectives in the Boyne Valley as possible in a single day. Derek's a great guide--well informed, affable, a careful driver, and... More

If you want to tour the Boyne Valley there are many "mega-bus tours." If you want a comprehensive guide who's lived in the area for years, then Michael Fox is the one to choose. I contacted Michael in March for a specialized tour in June. He took us to the sites we wanted to see Loughcrew, Knowth, Dowth, and Fornocks.... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of touring the Boyne Valley with Michael Fox on a gorgeous, sunny day in May. The tour was everything I had hoped it would be!
