We took the Tara Hill ad Newgrange tour. It was excellently organized. Just enough time at each location and very detailed instructions to manage a bus of 46 people, which can’t be easy. Mr. Gibbons shared a wealth of knowledge about the history of the sights and he also commented on the view of Brexit from the Irish point of view. I very much appreciated to learn about current political issues as well. I would definitely recommend this tour (from about 10:30 am to about 4:30 pm).

We took this tour to see Newgrange and Tara Hill, and it did not disappoint. The commentary provided by Martin was amazing. Martin imparted quite a bit of knowledge on the sites and history of Ireland. The tour starts in Dublin, but along the entire path to the first site - Tara Hill, Martin provided so much great info on the history and configuration of Dublin. Martin has a great personality and one can see his passion.

The tour did start a bit rough with some visitor talk too loud and interfering with the commentary; however martin was able to address the issue so as to not hinder the others on the tour. In fact, both 'talkers' simply went to sleep - such a waste on their part.

I would recommend this tour

The Newgrange site was unknown to me prior to a friend telling me it was something you can not see in the US and it was. Our day trip to Newgrange was a adventure in history and a unique site. How many times can you enter a site about as old as the Pyramids.

Anyhow it was sunny and that combined with a great tour guide, Joe made for another nice day in Ireland.

This is the must-do tour! From the time you get on the bus, to the time you are through, interesting facts and history, delivered with fun facts and humor keep you intrigued all day! I wouldn't recommend seeing these sacred sites without this tour, or visiting Dublin for that matter, as the tour was also filled with other tips and activities for all interests. What a great day with this tour!! Book early--it fills up all the time!

This day tour was well organized, comfortable and we managed to learn a lot from our tour guide and from the activities themselves. Good price and good service. I recommend it!
The tour leaves Dublin at 9 and you're back at 3 pm. You visit Newgrange and the Hill of Tara, both important sites in Irish history.
