This tour was a great experience, and a great value. The tour included pick up at our B&B, transfer to the ferry in Rossaveal, the ferry trip, and a guided bus tour around the island. As an Aran Islands native, the guide had great insight into the daily life on the island. We saw so much, but it didn't feel rushed. We had some time on our own, too, to explore Dun Aengus, which was nice. All in all - great experience that I would highly recommend.

Michael was a wonderful guide. His knowledge of and passion for the island of Inis Mór made the trip so interesting. The added delight of his wonderful sense of humor was the icing on the cake! Great memories!

Last April 20th my wife and I took the Faherty Aran islands tours. In all, we were satisfied with the services of our guides and drivers, Michael Faherty was apparently not working that day, The drivers were very friendly and witty and we had a good day. We took lots of pictures and saw all the interesting sites, all along the way, we learned about life in the sialdns, and even the weather cooperated with us.

We saw all the rugged beauty of Inish Mor and we enjoyed all the good comments offered along the way. However, we felt the tour was somewhat disorganized, for example it was never explained what was to be the program or what we were going to do next. Also, we could not avoid observing that the vans employed in Galway and Inish Mor are really old.

However, the tour was good and at the moment is perhaps the best option to enjoy the Islands.

This was the best way to get from Galway City, to Inis Mór and back again. I have done the shuttle to the station through another company as well, but Faherty Tours had everything included at a reasonable price and very friendly and intimate atmosphere. If you want to do an interactive bus tour on the island, with a native islander, this tour is the way to go! We had a great time, great weather and great company!
