If you are a history buff, enjoy beautiful locations, or are just interested in unfathomable human achievements. This is the tour to do. Two friends and I did the Newgrange tour where we went to Newgrange, Knowth, and other hot historical locations such as Slane Castle, Hill of Tara, Battle of the Boyne Site, and even more. The cradle of Irish history from the neolithic time to the Irish/British discourse seen today can be linked to all of these sites. On top of just visiting excellent spots, Michael just made it even better. Instead of being on a bus with 50 other people and having a time limit to see everything and return to the bus, we were able to see everything on our own time with Michael as our guide. He was very knowledgeable about everything we saw and wasn't afraid to correct the record on some "historical" facts that are usually presented. We were with Michael on our 3rd day in Ireland and were talking about how much fun that day was the rest of the trip. He is the face of the Newgrange and Meath area so much so that if you google Newgrange he comes up before the official museum website. This just shows you how much he knows about the places and the effort he puts into the tours. When I go back to Ireland I will definitely do another tour he offers. I also recommend him to anyone. The price is well worth it if you want to have a laid-back tour with a ton of historic value. Beats a bus tour any day.

My wife and I had an exceptional day with Michael. He brought a wealth of knowledge to enhance our experience. He took us to all the main sites as well as several lesser known ones as well. We would highly recommend Michael.

Michael was amazing. Gave us an in-depth history of the sights that we had requested seeing. Many stop along the ways at places that no tourist would know existed. He is lovely and even took us for tea at his home with is amazing wife who is a very talented artist. Such a lovely treat to be entertained in the home of someone. A real highlight of our 4th trip to Ireland and we are sure to contact Michael on our fifth trip. Wonderful - do not miss this experience.

Our private day tour with Michael of the Boyne Valley was the highlight of our two week visit to Ireland. I can't say enough about what an enjoyable and informative day it was. Michael was very professional and very knowledgeable about the Neolithic sights that we had wanted to see, primarily Newgrange and Knowth. In fact, Michael created the first websites for Newgrange and Knowth and has spent decades learning about their history, which he is happy to relate. In addition to those large passage tombs, Michael took us to Four Knocks, which is a passage tomb off the beaten path that we never would have found. Four Knocks was definitely a highlight as it was much more remote and added to the experience of visiting these ancient monuments, the Neolithic art inside was spectacular. We had requested a visit to Monasterboice, and along the way Michael also took us to Mellifont Abbey which was also incredibly impressive. I had thought we wouldn't have had time but it fit seamlessly into our day, as did the drive through the site of the Battle of the Boyne which Michael explained in detail. To cap off the fantastic day, we visited the Hill of Tara on the way back to Dublin where he described all of the features and the archaeological finds. Throughout the day there were additional sights here and there that he would point out. He has a very easygoing manner and as a Boyne Valley native you can tell how much he enjoys sharing his home and the thousands of years of history found there. As for the booking process, it was very easy through his website and Michael was an excellent communicator. He also knew all of the staff at the various sights and we were able to walk in with no issue. This was a top-notch private tour and I highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit this part of Ireland.

I booked a day with Michael Fox, Boyne Valley Tours, to visit Newgrange and the Boyne Valley. It was the best day in Ireland and I feel we got more than our money’s worth. The excursion went smoothly and easily, from pick-up at our Dublin hotel to return. Michael, who is very easy to be with, oriented us for our visit of the Passage Tombs and showed us the myriad places of interest in the Boyne Valley. Everyone we met seemed to know and hold Michael in high regard. My husband and I feel very lucky to have found Michael’s Boyne Valley Tours and booked him for a day. I doubt anyone knows the Boyne Valley better than Michael. We recommend him highly!
