Excellent Tour! John C. was an excellent driver/guide, very knowledgeable, and we had a marvelous time. He even went the extra mile and dropped us off closer to the port so we could catch our cruise ship before the last tender. Would highly recommend Lally Tours for Galway-based sightseeing! Thanks for a great day!

Overall, the trip was very fun. We got a discount at caves and a few extra stops along the way if there was something to see. The guide was kind and gave us lots of recommendations. But he was speaking a bit quiet, fast and with strong accent. I was fine with it and heard him well but my friends had problems with understanding him during the trip, unlike the guide at caves for example who spoke very clearly and was understood by non-english speakers.

The tour was amazing! We stopped at a few scenic views along the way for photo ops which were stunning. The tour guide brought us to a local pub in Doolin for lunch which was great. I loved all thee historic information the tour guide added along the way as well.
