Welldone excursion in a unique world of nature phanomenas
, Jun 2022
Beside the rather stormy weather on the Arran-ferry we remember well the interesting busdrive down to the port with the engaged comments of our driverguide to interesting points we passed by down to the port. Especial memorable are the two typical local horses which were ready on time just as ordered to be. The rough climat on the arranis isle we visited as well as the long way back to the mainland in stormy weather with high waves but nevertheless a stop closed to the/under the cliffs of Moher to get an impressiv sight and fotos for those who weren't seasick were another highlight of this tour. The last stop towards the tour's end to walk the visitorcenter's many paths up to the Cliffs was then the part to calm day after that exiting day and take some final fotos.

The tour guide aka the bus driver is simply the best. He did not just take us on a tour. He made us feel Ireland.
breath taking

Amazing views and landscapes. Recommend 100%. This was Ireland’s top 5 for me. The Burren way is unique and definitely worth a drive thru, at the least.
WOW what a great day!

We not only had a beautiful day for this tour, but the small group van provided an even more intimate and informative event. Our driver was a bit of a character and added a few fun stops that were unexpected. We stopped in Lisdoonvarna for the matchmaking festival, which was a real treat, and that was not included on our tour, so this was the perfect tour if you ask me. Everything that day was fabulous and worth the time and expense. Loved it!!!
One of the best adventures in Ireland!

This trip was great! Our tour guide and bus driver, Peter, was fantastic and very knowledgable. The sites were wonderful. The only problem was the rough boat ride to/and from the Aran Island. Be aware of going during rough weather. The crew was great at assisting those who suffered sea sickness - this was due to the terrible weather the evening before. However, once we reached the island, the weather cleared and the return trip was much better! It was a wonderful day filled with memorable events and sites.
Amazing day trip!

Our guide, Raymond, was funny, entertaining and very interesting. Even though you see a lot in one day, you have enough time to enjoy each stops. Great places and great views!

It was a very comfortable bus ride. Driver Allen knew the history, the specifics and kept us enthralled. He has a great sense of humour, friendly and very helpful. He made the journey interesting and enjoyable.
Awesome day with Connemara Wild escapes

Our tour guide Alan Daniels couldn't have done a better job on our tour. We had a wonderful day at the Cliffs and on Aran Island. The trip was well organized and Alan did a great job getting us there and back while entertaining and educating us about the Burrens, the Cliffs, and the Aran Islands. Alan made mention of Corcomroe Abby along the way. We went back to visit and found it to be an extraordinary place we certainly have missed had he not mentioned it. We would do it again!
Alan is GREAT!
, Jun 2019
This was an amazing day trip. Alan was our guide and he was wonderful. He was infomative and he helped make sure we spent our time wisely to see as much as possible.
Easily the Highlight of the Trip
, Jun 2019
This is one of the greatest tours I've ever been on. Peter, our guide, was amazing. He was funny, highly engaging, and the information he provided was excellent. He would use members of the tour as examples in his stories that provided the fascinating history of the Burren and Lisdoonvarna. On the Aran Island of Inis Oirr he provided excellent recommendations for a tour of the island and places to eat. The sights were amazing, as expected, but Peter really made the tour. I would strongly recommend this tour to anyone. My wife and I will probably take it again next time we're in Ireland.

Nine members of our family enjoyed this excursion. The ferry to the Aran Islands and our time there was fabulous. The return trip when gave us a view of the Cliffs from below was breathtaking as was our free time at the Cliffs. Our coach driver was interactive and fun

Great trip that combines two things that will make you very happy. Great tour company and guide. Worth the day. On the island enjoyed watching a dolphin swim up to be petted by a resident of the island. Just another day...
The tour was okay, we had done...

The tour was okay, we had done other, similar tours out to the Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher last year and this one felt hurried, perfunctory. Although the estimate return time was 5:30pm, the actual return time is closer to 7pm or later, so we had to skip the visit to the Cliffs and change buses in the parking lot so that we'd make our connecting bus back in Galway. I'm grateful to our driver for arranging that, once he learned of our predicament. Be aware that any visit to the Aran Islands is highly dependent on the weather, so rough seas can seriously delay your departure, and limit the amount of time you have on the island.

Super !

Superbe journée Dommage cependant qu'aux îles aran, le tour de visite soit payant et que l'on ne le sache pas. Sinon l'organisation est top, et la journée très complète.
