The weather did not cooperate and it was very rainy nonetheless the scenery was very beautiful and the abbey is a must if you are visiting Ireland. The bus was very wobbly, there was no music so it was a very quiet ride sometimes and a little less interactive than other tours I took in Ireland.

It was amazing Jerry is the best guide. He gave us explanation about the land and all the villages and also stopped the buss for the panorama photos. We climbed the Diamond hill and the others went to the Abbey. Everything went as expected. Strongly can recommend to everybody. Thank you Jerry

John was great! Lots of local insight and interesting stories. He really kept it real and added just the right amount of color for two New Yorkers looking for a nice day out of the city. Many AMAZING stops for pictures along the way and clear communication all around. Definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Galway.
