Hi! We are new to Viator, but the 'Legendary tour' has been running for over a decade and has been much praised over the years for going well beyond the historical outline of city. We take you on meandering tour around the backstreets of the fine medieval city with a few stops that relate to more modern times.
The tour focusses of legends rather than just history and will adapt to appeal the personal interests of the participants.
Galway has some fascinating tales that are brought to life through Neil's storytelling. Who can resist a tales of live, pirates, murder and adventuring in new lands?
We also take great delight in recommending places to eat and drink that we think we will really appeal to you.
You will be part of a group that is never more than 15 people to allow for a more personalised and intimate experience of our city.
We hope that you will have a great time, as thousands have done already,
