Highlight of Trip to Ireland If you are a history buff, enjoy beautiful locations, or are just interested in unfathomable human achievements. This is the tour to do. Two friends and I did the Newgrange tour where we went to Newgrange, Knowth, and other hot historical locations such as Slane Castle, Hill of Tara, Battle of the Boyne Site, and even more. The cradle of Irish history from the neolithic time to the Irish/British discourse seen today can be linked to all of these sites.
On top of just visiting excellent spots, Michael just made it even better. Instead of being on a bus with 50 other people and having a time limit to see everything and return to the bus, we were able to see everything on our own time with Michael as our guide. He was very knowledgeable about everything we saw and wasn't afraid to correct the record on some "historical" facts that are usually presented. We were with Michael on our 3rd day in Ireland and were talking about how much fun that day was the rest of the trip.
He is the face of the Newgrange and Meath area so much so that if you google Newgrange he comes up before the official museum website. This just shows you how much he knows about the places and the effort he puts into the tours.
When I go back to Ireland I will definitely do another tour he offers. I also recommend him to anyone. The price is well worth it if you want to have a laid-back tour with a ton of historic value. Beats a bus tour any day.
Discovering Ireland’s Historical treasures Loved learning the history of Ireland’s ancient cultures - through the interpretation of passage mounds - both modest and enormous. Then overlaid by subsequent cultures of conquest and rebellion .was fascinating. Michael enjoys his craft and answers every question. He was timely, polite and easy to understand.
Great tour and tour guide We went on two tours with Boyne Valley Tour. The Ancient Boyne Valley Guided tour and the Wicklow tour. Love both private tours. Michael is a great tour guide. He is knowlegeable and makes Ireland come alive. Would do this tour again. No complaints.
The highlight of our time in Ireland. Don't miss this! We cannot recommend Michael highly enough!! Our day with him was not only educational and thought provoking, but also humbling and magical. His knowledge of ancient Irish history through current times was remarkable, and he was a great storyteller and educator.
Our visits to the Hill of Tara, Celtic crosses, Knowth and Newgrange were beyond expectation. They were only topped by Micheal taking us to the Four Knocks passage tomb, where we had unrestricted time to experience this wonder. When we had a slight delay getting the key due to weather, Micheal pivoted effortlessly, taking us to share a warm cup of tea and see a nearby Sheela na Gig. It felt like enjoying a day with a friend versus a tour guide.
Our experience with Michael was the highlight of our week in Ireland. Please don't hesitate to schedule this tour.
Newgrange area tour My wife and I had an exceptional day with Michael. He brought a wealth of knowledge to enhance our experience. He took us to all the main sites as well as several lesser known ones as well. We would highly recommend Michael.
