“Wonderful Tour” Michael arranged a marvelous full day tour of Boyne Valley for us. Besides the Neolithic sites of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, which were a must for us, he included Mellifont Abbey, several High Irish Crosses and a fascinating image called
Sheela-na-gig. He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. And arranged for the tickets ahead. Michael is a professional guide with incredible knowledge of the Boyne Valley. This is truly the only way to see this historic area. Highly recommended.
“An amazing tour covering thousands of years of history in one pleasant day.” Fáilte is Irish for Welcome and is something that Michael exudes. From the friendly handshake to start the day until the he waved goodbye at the end you feel welcome to be in Ireland and on the tour.
We started my heading to the Boyne’s neolithic headliners: Knouth and Newgrange. On our drive up from Dublin we talked and Michael rearranged the itinerary on the fly to accommodate our wish to see the sea coast.
All through the day Michael was a source of interesting conversation on an amazing variety of topics and he made the tour fun and informative.
By the end of the day we had seen the Neolithic sites, Drogheda, Trim Castle, the Hill of Tara, and the Bective Abbey. It was a full day.
I would recommend Boyne Valley Tours to anyone visiting Ireland to get a grounding in Irelands rich history.
Great tour! Our day with Michael was memorable! His Boyne Valley Tour covered far more than we could have accomplished otherwise. Michael is very knowledgeable, easy to understand, and entertaining. He also offered solid insights and suggestions for our onward Ireland travel. He has a very nice and comfortable car. Michael is an all around great guide!
“Perfect layover excursion to Newgrange and other sites” We had a one day layover in Dublin at the end of a two week trip to Ireland and Scotland. My husband and I were traveling with our two boys, ages 11 and 9. By this point in the trip my boys were completely bored and exhausted with any sort of guided tour. They just wanted to run and climb. Michael took this into account, asked about other experiences we had enjoyed during our trip and coordinated the perfect day. Throughout the day he answered our multitude of questions about Ireland and the sites we were visiting. He had incredibly interesting information about the region and the traditions. He was flexible, patient and engaging. He picked us up from the airport. Our first stop was the seaside at the Boyne river emptying spot into the ocean. My kids got to run and skip rocks. Next stop were the ancient Celtic crosses and then on to the Hill of Slane (where St. Patrick began his ministry in Ireland). There are spectacular ruins there including one that the boys were able to climb and explore. After sufficient expenditure of boy energy, there was a stop for lunch and whiskey at Slane Castle before we headed to the main attraction at Newgrange and Knowth. (important note- you must book your tickets ahead of time for this, it is not included. If you are going to be doing multiple things in Ireland, investigate the Heritage Card. It easily paid for itself during our trip and this is one of the included sites with the card). The sites at Knowth and Newgrange were incredibly powerful (even my boys were engaged and agreed that being in one of the oldest known man made structures on Earth was "cool.") Michael then dropped us at our hotel at the end of the day.
After a two week international trip with multiple stops, my whole family was exhausted. Michael made our last day incredibly enjoyable, easy and smooth. He was an absolute pleasure and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
“Unforgettable!” Michael from Boyne Valley Tours is truly in a class of his own. I have never had a guide go to such lengths to make a custom tour fit our requests so exactly! In addition to perfect activities and sites, Michael is very pleasant and full of knowledge of the area. It was more like we were being shown around by a friend than by a hired guide. Yes, this area of the country is beautiful, and you will probably enjoy seeing it however you get there. Boyne Valley Tours, though, takes everything to the next level, shows you sites you would never see on your own (which also means fewer crowds) and gives the perfect amount of commentary to help you appreciate the area you are visiting. I will be forever grateful for helping make this special trip even more extraordinary. The day we spent on this tour will never be forgotten. (So, stop reading reviews and just book this tour!!)
