It was a wonderful trip! Our tourguide Mike was very funny and we learned a lot of interesting facts. Connemara is beautiful but we didn’t know that you need to choose between seeing the Kylemore abbey or the Connemara Parc! In the End we did the Connemara Hike and Mike even did let us take a picture of Kylemore Abbey for a few minutes ! So we kind of had both! Great Experience i would definitely recommend!

Very well thought through tour. If you are quick, thee hours they give are enough to go through all the trains in the National Park, or just enjoy one or two in a slow pace. Two hours other companies give for the walk would be not enough. There are also many sweet stops on the way. Mike was amazing - the program is done with care - first tour guide ever to care to tell things on the way back as well. Light, pleasant humor as well. Highly recommended.

Wir waren in einem kleinen Bus mit 11 Touris unterwegs. Unser Busfahrer Tony erzählte uns, punktuell, zu den Locations bei deben wir gehalten haben oder durchfuhren, intressante Geschichten oder Fun-Facts. Er fuhr vorsichtig, so dass man sich wirklich wohl fühlen konnte im Mini-Bus. Die Spots selbst waren einfach top. ich war bereits zum 8. Mal in Irland und das war mit Abstand die beste Tour, die ich bisher gebucht hatte. Natürlich sollte man beim buchen beachten, was das Wetter so macht, aber das ist ja nichts Neues auf der grünen Insel. Also sich umbedingt wetterentsprechend kleiden. Ich habe den Diamond Hill nicht bis oben erklummen, jedoch war schon der blaue Trail absolut traumhaft. Die Aussicht war genial. Ein Highlight war auch der Mennin Bay mit dem wunderschönen Strand. wie gesagt, die Tour lohnt sich sowas von!
