“Cliffs of Moher and Kylemore Abby”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We had a great time with Healy tours! we went on the afternoon tour for the cliffs and the next day we chose the tour to Connemara. it was a really great experience! the drivers are really funny (thank you John!) and tell you everything worth to know about the region and like to joke around. they make also a very big effort to speak slowly and clearly so that non native speakers understand them as well. we enjoyed our trip a lot!
nevertheless, there are 2 things that were a little unpleasant:
1. the entrance prices are not included in the fee. so you have to pay for it in the bus. it would be so much easier to just pay everything when booking the tour.
2. you don't have a lot of time at the attractions itself and you need to hurry a little to see everything. I think it would be better if there were less stops on the way to the cliffs/kylemore Abby, so that you have more time at the main attractions. the thought of seeing as much as possible is good but in this case I think less is more.

those are just two little things that could be better. but all in all we had a great time and I would go with healys again!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We arranged for an afternoon tour of the Cliffs of Moher. Because there were only 8 people scheduled, a minibus with a driver but no tour guide was substituted for the regular tour bus. We drove for about 90 minutes to the Cliffs without any commentary on where we were or what we were seeing. Once we arrived at the Cliffs, we were introduced to a Healy's guide who said he'd take us back on his bus but we had to be ready in what was less than about 75 minutes. As a result, we had to rush around and couldn't walk leisurely and enjoy the experience.

On the way back the guide, who was clearly experienced and very nice, talked about the scenery and points of interest. He was great. My seat mate told me that this was her experience on the way out as well as well as the way back. My traveling companion and I weren't told we'd have no tour guide on the way out, as others did, or that our trip at the Cliffs would be so curtailed.

If you're lucky enough to have the expected tour, I'm sure it's very nice, but make sure you get what the brochure says you get.

This was my only negative experience in Ireland - everything else was great.

“Excellent tour to Cliffs of Moher and the Burren.”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

We two Taiwanese tourists(mother and daughter) joined Healy Tours' one day tour on the 23rd of June to Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. We enjoyed the tour very much, and we really appreciate our driver, who is also our tour guide, John. He did a great job. He is very professional and introduce each site very precisely. He let us off the bus at many beautiful sites to take pictures, very considerate. He drived very well and patiently, even there were cows walking slowly and occupying the road in front of our bus over fifteen minutes. It was a wonderful trip with beautiful scenery and amazing tour guide. We were so touched. We truely recommand travellers to join healy tours!

“Above and Beyond!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Healy Tours went above and beyond to make this a fantastic trip. Paul is the best. As a first time American driver in Ireland, Paul did everything he could to help me make the tour. He even had the bus pick me up at a rotary just outside of Galway. Highly recommend!
