My husband and I were travelling Ireland for our honeymoon in October 2016. After over a week of driving in the west, when we got to Dublin we decided to ditch the rental car and relax. The historic sites in the Boyne Valley region were really important for us not to miss, so I spent a ton of time researching the best private guide for the area. We didn't want to see the region on a large tour bus and be at the mercy of their schedule (along with the fact that it takes so long to herd 20+ people to each site!), and was so fortunate to come across Michael Fox and his private tours. He was so easy to communicate with for the weeks leading up to our trip. We were even able to pay in full prior to traveling via Pay Pal - SO convenient! Michael reached out to me a couple days prior to our tour to confirm he would be picking us up at our hotel and the time. He was early and his car was very comfortable!
Michael was so easy to converse with the entire day and truly created an itinerary that was special to us, including a surprise stop at a new brewery/distillery that wasn't even opened yet! My husband is a Brewmaster from the States, so that was a really special addition to our day. We didn't miss one site that we hoped to visit, and even got to see a couple other bonus locations. We got to Newgrange for the first tour of the day, and nearly had the place to ourselves! Michael was very knowledgeable about the sites and shared his passion for history with us throughout the day.
We are sincerely grateful for our day of tour and it will be a memory of a lifetime thanks to Michael's experience, insight and patience - it made for an exceptional day, highly recommended!
