The guided portion of the tour was extraordinary. Richard O'Brien was witty, thoughtful and knowledgeable. We were blessed with an extraordinarily sunny day. The cruise below the cliffs was awe inspiring. The only disappointment was not having someone at the meeting point early to meet us. Having the big green bus round the corner just before departure time and have the driver point where we were to go is not very good organization.

Great tour made better by a great guide Alan.
Frank_Z, Sept 2023
Really enjoyed this tour, our guide shared much detail about the sights on the itinerary as well as providing Irish history in a very conversational way, thanks Alan.
Incredible tour!
Julianne_T, Sept 2023
This tour was incredible! The bus driver was fantastic, friendly, and knowledgeable. The Aran Island ferry was exciting! The island is beautiful. The cliffs of moher are stunning and the best views are from the water. The cliffs have an excellent gift shop. It was a great day and I highly recommend this tour.
Great driver/guide, bad weather makes a difference
Alan_P, Sept 2023
The tour itself was put together really well, but due to the westher we did not get to see most sights clearly ( this is the only reason I took one star off). Alan, our driver/guide was fantastic! He gave us excellent narrative, was very witty and pleasant. We went to all the planned spots but the rain and strong wind made it impossible to see much. aaron Islands were OK ( again, the weather ), if you are given a choice of the cartiage tour - take it. Otherwise. It may be a bit boring while yiu are on the island itself ( free roaming time). The boat tour would have been cool if not for the weather. The water was very choppy and several people got sick ( if you have the slightest motion sickness, you really need to check the westher before you go). With all the nasty weather , Alan still managed to make this tour very enjoyable and informative. Loved the commentary and the drive was beautiful. Definitely recommend this tour, but do being everything waterproof and watch foe the weather.
It was a great trip....
Nancy_M, Sept 2023
It was a great trip. Guide was very good. The sights were amazing. We took the guided wagon on Inishmere and that was worth doing. Cliffs were great from the sea even though weather wasn’t great - some rocking and rain. The sound on the bus went in and out and AC on bus got a little cold - that was our only complaint.
Alan was wonderful. He...
Trisha_W, Sept 2023
Alan was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and had great facts that he shared as we toured the Wild Atlantic Way
Great value for the tour - thanks Alan
Katharine_M, Sept 2023
Alan was a lovely ambassador for the tour and really made the experience for us. He was super helpful and even hiked with us a bit on Inis Oirr to make sure we had our way. Very accommodating, kind and fun! The tour is well thought out and hits all the high notes. Good value!!
Fantastic trip from Galway

Alan was excellent; his commentary was interesting and littered with funny anecdotes. He did a great job at getting all of us around in good time. We particularly liked the Aran Islands. If you are able, it is worth getting a bike to cycle around for an hour or so. Be aware that on the way back in particular the water can be choppy and you’re better to sit on the upper deck of the boat if you’re prone to sea sickness. I would also take sea sickness bands / tablets.
☘️The ONLY Irish Bucket List Tour☘️
Erin_s, Sept 2023
This IS A BUCKET LIST TOUR! Big John was Great!! We took a bus from Galway, then a Cliffs of Moher boat tour (OMG! 😲😁), and to The Aran Islands. Had a wonderful horse drawn jaunty cart ride around the island (only $20 for 2 of us-he was 😃) and then a wonderful boiled bacon, cabbage & champ (hello- one of the best meals ever!😋) at The Insheer Hotel. (Tell little & big Martin we said "Hello!") And a then back to Galway.
Best tour ever to see the cliffs of moher
lisa_s, Sept 2023
This trip was amazing.. well worth the amount of hours it was. The cliffs of more from the ocean was incredible. The water was a bit rocky and frigid but the amazement of the cliffs.. breathtaking. This is a trip that has to be on the must do list. Worth every minute of it. The aran island was so beautiful, and it was the perfect amount of time on it. Would do this tour again and again and I give it 10 stars. Jerry our guide was excellent.. everything about this tour .. perfection
This was a great...
Brendan_K, Sept 2023
This was a great experience! The bus was a little uncomfortably full, but our driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The ferry to the Aran Islands was a comfortable ride, the time on Inis Oirr was a really cool experience, the ferry back beneath the cliffs was breathtaking, and the time spent on the Cliffs of Moher was a fantastic end of the trip. Would recommend this tour to anyone going to Galway!
Cliffs of Moher
Edward_G, Sept 2023
The Ferry ride to Innishear and the view of the cliffs from above even on a windy and rainy day…what is with NO WiFi on the bus???
Great tour, wonderful guide!
Veronica_B, Sept 2023
Our tour guide, Jerry, made our tour the best experience! He was very knowledgeable about the areas and towns we drove through. He made the day better than we could have asked for. Would definitly recommend!!
JACOB_D, Sept 2023
Had a great day out with our tour bus driver Alan. Very knowledgeable. Told us lots of history of the Irish people. Kept us very entertained throughout the tour. Highly recommended.
Exceptionally good!
Bill_H, Sept 2023
We were on three bus tours in Ireland. This was certainly the best. The guide, Alan, was exceptional.
Must See Cliffs of Mohr!
Cindy_T, Sept 2023
Even though it was a cloudy somewhat drizzly start to the day - we enjoyed the Aran Island, the tour under the cliffs and the walk on top of the cliffs. It was a great day and one of the most memorable of our Ireland trip. The driver was engaging and there was plenty of time to enjoy the island. I recommend getting on one of the horse carts just off the boat. We didn't know what it was and did not do it. We regret that, but enjoyed our time anyway.
Great experience 😎‼️
RobertW_B, Sept 2023
We loved the whole experience! What an awesome trip!! We especially enjoyed ALAN our tour guide he made it great fun and gave us good suggestions for dinner after.
Great trip with a great guide.

Loads is fun

Great time, wonderful guide, Alan. Let us know about each town we went through and about our tour on the islands
A grand day out
Megan_L, Sept 2023
We had an absolutely glorious day made even better by our guide Gerry who provided just the right amount of commentary and fun! It was fantastic to see the cliffs from above and below. The island was also beautiful. Would recommend this trip to all!
angela_g, Sept 2023
The tour was excellent! The view of the cliffs from both the boat and above was spectacular! Alan, the bus driver, was informative and funny. We would recommend this trip.
