The trip was really great! Our guide Luke and our driver Ana were always there for us and gave us very exciting, relevant information about the cultural and historical backgrounds during the trip. The recommendations for Dublin and Galway were also super helpful. Our guide Luke's humor was great and lightened up the day so that we felt completely comfortable and safe. All in all, a really great trip.

We had a really great guide in Conor! He put a lot of effort into his guests and told a lot of interesting things about Ireland and its history. What was particularly nice was that he played Irish music and even sang himself! This made the long bus ride very entertaining! We had 2 hours at the Cliffs of Moher, a quick photo stop and 2 hours in Galway, which was enough for all locations.

My parents and I booked this trip and we are absolutely happy we did. The guide (Jack) was funny while providing the group with all necessary information. Needless to say but the Cliffs of Moher are breathtaking - absolutely worth a visit. Galway was stunning too. All in all it was an amazing day and we will definitely recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind being on a bus:)

the organisation was stunning. Right amount of stops, the guide, Jacko, is fantastic, and the driver is very skilled. A wonderful experience !

amazing day tour, it was the highlight of my Ireland trip. Gina and Ivan were amazing, thanks for today!
