It was a lovely experience but you have to be lucky with the weather to actually see the cliffs. Gary was an amazing guide and we really enjoyed listening to his comments. Pub food was good and reasonable priced. We would definitely recommend taking this trip.

Hi Eva, Thank you for your positive review. Here, on the West of Ireland, we get loads of rain between the showers, but it takes people like you to make the sun shine through the clouds ;-)

We are operating under Government License and have designed our scheduled tours to give as much time as it allowed at each stop. However, we are very happy to arrange a private tour which does not have the same time restriction. We hope to see you on our tours again.

From start to finish, this tour was absolutely incredible. Gary, our tour guide and driver, took us to a few scenic stops on the way to the Cliff of Moher and didn't miss a beat with his detailed narration and hospitality. He was knowledgable, funny, and kept the trip exciting. The morning was off to a cloudy and rainy start, but was expected to clear up in the afternoon, so Gary timed it so we would get to the cliffs at the most optimal time. When we arrived, the sun was shining and the winds were calm. It was like a spring day in the middle of December. That day on the cliffs was easily on of the best of my life. Really, truly stunning. On the way home, we has a bit of extra time, so we stopped along the Flaggy Shore/Burren for one more opportunity for pictures. This tour is a must! Thank you, Gary! :)

It was absolutely lovely. We where a small group of just 4 people. Our Guide Gary was very experienced and funny. I learned so much along the way to the cliffs and back. The cliffs are so beautiful and stunning but the stop we made after the cliffs was even more impressing. I'd absolutely do it again!

Gary was the tour guide for my trip. He was so knowledgeable and kept my friend and I laughing throughout the trip. His personality really brought the tour to life and we learned so much! We happened to have great weather that day and our photos came out beutifully. I have to note that when passengers were giving our tour guide a hard time, he remained very professional and gracious - an amazing employee for this company to have.

We had the luck to see the cliffs without cloud cover. They’re spectacular! Gary knows a mountain of information, and we had a blast. Pickup was a half and hour before the tour started, and since we weren’t staying at one of the pickup stops, I picked the closest one to where we were staying; if I could do it again, I would have chosen to walk to Galway Tour Company to buy us another half an hour for breakfast since Galway is so small. The lunch stop pub served great, inexpensive food and drinks, and the extra stop Gary made on the way back was pricelessly beautiful.

Thank you, Kira, for your heartwarming review. We are happy when our customers also recognise that Garry is such a great guide! We are delighted to hear you had a superb experience with our company on the Cliffs of Moher Day Trip and look forward to meet you on our tours again.
