Michael took myself, my brother, and 2 nephews on a fun filled day of visiting the Boyne Valley. His knowledge of all the sites was an unexpected treat. We really enjoyed the personal time with and ourselves. Really enjoyed Hill of Tara and how he guided us through time and explained how the Procession probably occurred many many years ago. My nephews liked the ability to explore the sites and openly ask questions. Even during the drive to and from the sites was an adventure.
Excellent Trip. Highly recommend. Lunch was really good too.

Such a great tour and the tour guides are brilliant. Went to Newgrange and Knowth. Such an interesting thing to see. The tour is long so it's great for a day out and such great value. Would highly recommend it

When we stepped off our international flight at 4:30am, we were wondering how we would handle an all day tour of the Boyne Valley with so little sleep. That was no problem! Michael Fox picked us up at our Dublin hotel promptly at 8am and we were off for a day that our group will always remember. We knew we wanted to see Newgrange and Trim, but beyond that we left the details of the tour to Michael. We arrived at Newgrange before the crowds and that was a good indication of how smoothly the rest of the day would go. The day was a good mix of walking the Hill of Tara, taking memorable photos, seeing beautiful gardens, eating a delightful lunch at a small town along the way, then wandering through Monasterboice and the Bective Abbey. Michael's knowledge of each of the sites kept us engaged throughout the day. We enjoyed a day of gorgeous weather and unforgettable sites. What a wonderful introduction to beautiful Ireland.

I took my first trip to Ireland last week with my niece and nephew. I booked the Boyne Valley Day Tour with Michael Fox a few weeks in advance. Michael picked us up promptly at our hotel in Dublin and he immediately started to fill us in on the sites that we saw along the way to the Boyne Valley. He graciously accommodated my last minute request to visit the Sheela-na-gig, and we were able to do this before heading to Newgrange. The ride through the narrow rural back roads was quite a pleasure, allowing us the chance to see thatched houses and extensive farmlands. Michael was able to get us on the first tour of the day at Newgrange, which resulted in a smaller group of people than usual inside the structure and no waiting in lines. Throughout the day we visited Monasterboice, Hill of Tara, Bective Abbey, and Trim Castle. At a couple of the stops we had the place to ourselves. We also made an unscheduled stop at the Battle of the Boyne site and explored the gardens there. We asked him question after question and he answered each one thoroughly. His demonstrated a deep level of expertise on all of the locations we visited. Michael even entertained the numerous questions we asked about everyday life in Ireland. This tour was a pure treat and was worth every penny. I highly recommend that you take this personalized tour with Michael when you visit Ireland!

We engaged Michael to take us to The Festival of Fire this Halloween. We came from USA for this special event and Michael did the reconnaissance of a guide, dedicated to his client's experience. Since this was a first for him he researched the event, kept us up to date via email, and he even went to the location the day before to scope out the Festival details. He also added a couple of stops on our way from Dublin that were ancient and awesome. He is the man to provide more than just a tour; he cares! We will look forward to seeing Michael again and highly recommend his services⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
