“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!!)
Amazing day with Michael Michael was amazing. Gave us an in-depth history of the sights that we had requested seeing. Many stop along the ways at places that no tourist would know existed. He is lovely and even took us for tea at his home with is amazing wife who is a very talented artist. Such a lovely treat to be entertained in the home of someone. A real highlight of our 4th trip to Ireland and we are sure to contact Michael on our fifth trip. Wonderful - do not miss this experience.
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!!
An outstanding day with Mr. Fox We spent a day with Michael Fox in the Boyne Valley. He was charming and provided the background information to not only appreciate but feel the almost mystical vibes of ancient neolithic mounds, ruined abbeys, bloody battlefields, and millenia old high crosses.
“Best Tour Guide for Boyne Valley Ancient Sites” Michael’s tour was great! He picked us up & dropped us off at our hotel in Dublin. We did a full day Boyne Valley tour centered mainly on megalithic sites, and he was extremely knowledgeable & helpful showing us the major sites and some well off then beaten path. In discussions of megalithic art and early Christian sites, I asked about Sheela-na-gigs. Within 10 minutes he was showing us one on private property where he knew the owner! Highly rated!!!
