Long but interesting day, and plenty of time to get out and walk around, which was nice for such a long tour.

Best Excursion for the price
Priscilla_W, Feb 2023
Everything about this excursion was amazing! Beautiful scenery on the mainland. Cliffs of Moher were spectacular. Wonderful boat ride. The island itself was amazing. The people were great. We took a horse and buggy ride around the island. It was a wonderful day for a great price.
Well with the trip

Trip was well planned and timed for all activities. Dave was an excellent guide and although the day started with poor weather, he kept spirits high and was genuinely concerned with our comfort.
Loved our tour from Galway to the Cliffs and Aran Islands.....

Our tour guide Tommy was so informative and told us wonderful Irish stories.The day flew by. Highly recommend him for The Cliffs of Moher Tour and the Aran Islands.
Best tour yet

Cruise and the Aran island’s way of life. It was fascinating . The guides were superb. Very informative.
Kimberley_M, Sep 2022
Our tour guide was very friendly and had a lot of great information for the tour. The island was interesting but two hours was a little too long. We just walked and didn’t use the promoted buggy or bikes. The boat ride by the cliffs was definitely the highlight of the trip. We were taken to a pub for lunch and it was not good. I didn’t like that there were no other options were given for lunch. There was only soup as a vegetarian option . The service was quick but the staff was rude. I understand that they don’t need to be nice because they are guaranteed money from the tours. The walk on the cliffs was also good but I would have loved more time there. Perhaps take some time from the island and give more time at the cliffs because that is really why we went.
Beautiful western Ireland

Great trip if you have a steady stomach
Sarah_A, Aug 2022
We loved the history and the variety of landscspes and activities. We would suggest that the drivers hand out bags in advance in case children orml adults get motion sick on the bs.or.on the boat. Also would give tips on avoiding motion sicknessike sitting up front.
Tour guy Tommy was the best!
Ted_W, Aug 2022
We loved it all! The beautiful cliffs from the boat and from the top were all spectacular! The island was cute and interesting too. We had the most wonderful tour guy named Tommy! He was kind, funny, well informed and just a pleasure to be around! Our 90 year old mother enjoyed the tour too and thought that Tommy was the kindest man!
Fab u lous

We really enjoyed the whole experience. Tommy our guide was great and kept us informed and entertained. The scenery was amazing as was Inis Oirr and the boat trip. Food was great as was the weather. Ten out of ten for this bus tour.
The Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands and the Burren
James_M, Aug 2022
We loved our bus driver and tour guide Tommy. Excellent stories and he really knew the history of the area. The landscapes were breathtaking, the pictures don't do it justice.
Memoriable for a lifetime

Horse drawn carrige ride on the Ennis Island with views. Great conversation with other couples from all around the globe
More than I expected!
Genna_P, Aug 2022
This was so much more than I expected, as I wasn’t expected the guided coach tour, or at least, I hadn’t thought about it being how it was! Our bus driver and tour guide, Tommy, was EXCELLENT. Super informative, helpful, and personable. We would definitely use Galway Tour Company again.
Best day in Ireland!
Enrico_I, Aug 2022
Wonderful tour, everything was perfectly managed and organized. Tommy, the driver/guide, is the best.
The driver and guide (...
Claudia_S, Jul 2022
The driver and guide ( John) was really very nice. Unfortunately the weather didn't help. Rain the whole day. Mist We couldn't see the reef in its dimensión. I would recomend this tours looking at the weather forecast. In Aran island we took the tractor but the trip was short. It was nice that he stoped and told us history about the Island and it's people. After that we walked to points of interest that we hadn't seen from the tractor (everything is a short walk from the boat stop). I strongly recomend walk or hire a bike.
Beautiful scenic experience
Genevieve_S, Jul 2022
Memorable were the views, the narrow roadside experience, the guide’s knowledgeable and sometimes witty comments. tommy always made sure to ask if we enjoyed the trip, at every stop. The Visit on Aran Island was too short if you are doing the bike trek - we would have needed another 30-45 min to complete and enjoy talking to the villagers. As for the Cliffs of Moher: the views from the ocean are breathtaking but we appreciated seeing them from atop as well. We got both perspectives. Definitely recommend this excursion.
Awesom Tour

Guide was incredibly knowledgeable of the entire area. This bus had a toilet which worked out well for my kids.
