Always try to do HOHO buses when we go to New places. It was good to see the city & get an overview of where things are & the history. The narrator gave a good overview but it wasn't as good as having a real person, who often give anecdotes & makes the tour come to life.

Their tour was mainly through the central area, Sathill and surrounding areas and it really was fantastic! They told us about the history and culture of Galway which is very nice. It is worth doing it, it is different and very comfortable.

We loved the experience. Gives a great view of the area and good local history. Made it easier for us to get our bearings and we were able to wander freely around

A bit expensive for an hour tour, unless the weather is exceptional you won’t use it again in the time allocated.

Always a very nice opportunity to get to know a city and also to visit some things again and to explore the area.
