“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!!)
An Excellent Tour and Superb Guide We would highly recommend this tour and our guide/driver Michael. We spent a day enjoying the remarkable historic and cultural sights of the Boyne Valley on this tour. Michael’s knowledge and enthusiasm about the valley and the various sites helped to build our understanding and enjoyment of all we saw. He answered our many questions and even sent us information after the tour in regards to something we asked about. Michael’s relaxed style and pleasant demeanour also added to the day. All in all, this was a real highlight of our trip to Ireland!
Wonderful tour of Boyne Valley I took a tour of Boyne Valley with Michael Fox on November 3, 2022, while I was visiting from the United States. I was a single traveler.
He picked me up from my Dublin hotel in a clean and very comfortable sedan and we headed off to Boyne Valley. We went to Newgrange; Dowth, the ruins of Slane Abbey, Mellifont, Monasterboice, and Hill of Tara. The drive was extremely scenic and we talked most of the time that we were in the car as he explained the history of what we were seeing. It was a very full day--a true highlight of my 11-day trip to Ireland.
Michael is extremely personable and knowledgeable about the entire region. Prior to booking I told him of a few sites that I wanted to see and we hit all of them--plus several that I was unaware of previously. We also stopped at a lovely restaurant to get a quick lunch. I strongly recommend him as a tour guide.
Professional, expert tour. Hi - We travelled To Dublin from the US and and on short notice Michael arranged a delightful custom tour to the Hill of Tara, Knowth, and Newgrange. He is a professional tour guide and delivers what should be expected and more. It was especially delightful that he resides in the Valley area we visited, and knows every hill and mound to be spoken of, as well as the history and customs of the area, and local personalities and friends. We were conveniently picked up and dropped off at our hotel in Dublin, and toured in a super clean luxury vehicle. Highly recommended!
“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.
