The sights were just breathtaking and our tour guide, Mike, was incredibly knowledgeable and funny, and had so many stories to share on the history of the places we saw but also more generally about Ireland. It was absolutely fantastic. Would definitely recommend to anyone who’s in the Galway area!

Great surrounding, ideal trip if you dont wanna rent a car! The Abbey is a treasure and the landscape is beautiful. Tommy was a really great guide, we had a really interesting and great time. He was open for all questions, and he was really helpful!

The Connemara trip couldn't have been more beautiful ... the landscape touched me deeply. My heart made small leaps for joy. The tour guide was there and told a lot about the area. You can tell the job makes me happy.

We had a great day, our guide knew how to make us fall in love with this region thanks to his comments and the stops in incredible landscapes! There were not many of us on the excursion and it was very pleasant.

The driver, Tommy, was very kind, funny, friendly and didnt rush us the way other guides do when you're on a tight schedule. We enjoyed our trip thanks to him a lot. I recommend this guy warmly
