“Great Free way to see all the highlights”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

We really enjoyed seeing all the highlights - seeing the river, cathedrals, stories behind monuments and different sites in the city. Our tour guide was very energetic and informative - made it very entertaining. Starts at the perfect place in Eyre Square - very central locale. Definitely worth it to get an overview of the city.

“Galway Bay by moon light”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

I went down to Galway to see my Daughter Yasoda as I bought her a drum kit for Christmas
and her was now 3 months later in the Galway Parade St. Paddy's Day.It was really really good
and to see my Girl playing in the Parade was the proudest day of my life. After the Parade was over and all was done and dusted I desided to go for a walk to the beach to top of a perfect day
and I got to see one of the best sun rises I have ever seen. so I would like to share it with you all.

“Galway Walks”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

If you go to Galway don't forget to do this tour.. We could not get a hold of Galway Walking Tours as we called at the last minute. We did get a hold of Neil (I think that is the way to spell his name). Well what a treat, he was fabulous. He took us on a tour in the misty rain and we were entranced by the information.... thanks so much

“An hour and a half well spent”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

DId this one May, the local historian was brilliant and brought the city to life with tales of misdeeds and local folklore. Would definitely do it again!
