Incredible way to see all of Boyne We did a full tour of Boyne Valley with Michael over Halloween weekend 2022. He planned the day quite well, and we made it to all our sights - and then some! The guide was knowledgable and brought personal touches. Highlights included Slane Distillery, Dowth, Hill of Tara.
A Wonderful Day in the Boyne Valley My husband and I joined Michael on a day-long tour of the Boyne Valley that included Newgrange and the Hill of Tara and many sites in between. Michael was a great guide - we could not have had such a productive day without him! He was friendly, knowledgeable, punctual and a great person to spend the day with. He picked us up and dropped us off at our Dublin hotel and had a full day of sightseeing (with a stop for lunch along the way). This tour was definitely worth it - and much more personal than sitting on a tour bus with many others.
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.
“One of our best days in Ireland – Thanks Michael!” We really enjoyed the trip through the countryside on the way to Newgrange and Dowth – the UNICEF sight is spectacular. Other stops included Hill of Slane (and history related thereto), Slane Castle, Mainistir Bhuithe area (especially enjoyed the old stone Celtic crosses and the Monasterboice Round Tower), Mellifont Abbey ruins, and our visit to the Battle of Boyne visitor center and gardens. He even made a quick stop at St. Peters Church in Drogheda to see a very interesting relic of Saint Oliver Plunkett.
Michael Fox provided great historical insights everywhere we went – enjoyable, very knowledgeable, and full of personal experiences in area (he and family live there) – willing to answer all our questions and tailor the day to fit our interests (history, old churches and the Irish country side) – in all, one of our best days in Ireland.
Michael makes it easy and enjoyable! Touring the ancient sites with Michael was am absolutely incredible experience. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, he's also really nice and funny, so it felt like traveling with a close friend. We highly recommend Michael!!
