Cliffs Tour with Tommy
Kimberly_R
, Jul 2021
Our trip to the Cliffs of Moher were incredibly memorable. The scenery was amazing and the price is great! Our guide was Tommy and we couldn’t have been happier! Tommy was accommodating, friendly, patient, and knowledgeable about Ireland and it’s history. There was a slight miscommunication with the pickup location and Galway Tour Company made sure they called me and sorted it out so that we wouldn’t be left behind. I recommend bringing a backpack with a rain jacket and umbrella, as the weather is unpredictable. Highly recommend Galway Tour Company and Tommy! If possible ask for him as your guide :)

Our tour guide and driver Eamonn went above and beyond to make our day enjoyable. He had great local knowledge and was very easy to listen to. The tour itself was really spectacular. We were lucky enough to have a clear day and could see the Aran Islands from our bus. The landscape of the Burren was incredible to look at with its unique Flora and beautiful soft grey colours. The cliffs themselves are powerful and daunting. A great day out.

Super Fun Day

Awesome day of sightseeing. A great option if you are not willing to rent a car. Not a whole lot of time at each sight but I think enough to see the beautiful places,. Our driver Gerry (or Gary, can not remember) was wonderful. We had to change our day because of the weather and was charged a fee which was annoying but oh well. Overall great experience!

Horrible bus driver

The bus driver was horric. Throughout the day he made many sexist jokes, very inappropriate comments and even a racist remark. These jokes and remarks were over the loudspeaker as he was driving. It was uncomfortable and embarrassing.
