“one of the best activities when in Galway”
Reviewed June 28, 2010

My group and I really enjoyed this tour.
With speaking to them this morning they all had a delightful time
hearing all about Galway and had great comments to say about all aspects
of the tour.
Well organised, interesting, and great value - I will definitely recommend this tour to others. Thanks so much for making our stay in Galway even better!

“This is a Scam !”
Reviewed August 7, 2009

Ray did not show up at the time of the tour. I had to wait in line at the tourism booth where they contacted him for me. He told them that he had cancelled the tour for the day and he had credited my paypal account. He had my cell phone number and email address and had never attempted to contact me to inform me that the tour had been cancelled and then he never credited my account. I had to have my credit card company dispute the charges. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS TOUR !!!!!

While we do take full responsibility unfortunately this was due to a malfunction in our online booking system. When contacted by the Credit Card company we immediately refunded the money but up to that point we had no idea of this error.
I have spent several years building up a small business and strive for high standards. However the content of this review is way over the top. To insinuate we are running a scam is ludicrous and offensive

“Ray is great!”
Reviewed July 5, 2009

We had a private walking tour with Ray, and I can't recommend him enough. His presentation of Galway's history was interesting, and the walk isn't a killer. He hits all of the highlights and helps get you oriented to the layout of the city. If you're in Galway, take a tour with Ray - it's worth every penny.

“Enthuasiasm and Knowledge”
Reviewed June 18, 2008

Just a quick note to highlight how good this tour is. Our guide Ray had such enthuasiasm and endless knowledge about Galway. Funny stories, sad stories and great tales.
Definitely worth the money. He filled us in on some great music sessions to go to later and really made our trip with his local knowledge.
