What a wonderful and informative trip through the Burren and the cliffs of Moher. Our guide, John B, was professional, organized, a great communicator and very informative. I enjoyed learning about the history, flora and fauna of the amazing landscape we toured from him. He was also great at conveying what was coming next and keeping the group punctual - and not to mention navigating that big bus around windy narrow country roads like a pro! The bus was spacious and comfortable. We also had an incredibly delicious lunch in Doolin. Highly recommend!

We had a great day the only thing was lunch was a bit rushed as we were a large group so my suggestion would be maybe add 15 mins more to lunch because by the time you order and get your food you are rushed to eat then we had to line up to pay.

I was very impressed with our driver! John B was such a great tour guide! He always was pointing out things and telling us about everything! Now if he could have only controlled the weather!

Amazing! Seeing the cliffs by boat was amazing. We even got to see Dolphins by the boat. I would highly recommend this trip

Absolutely excellent trip got amazing day with beautiful sunshine 🤩
