“A Perfect Irish Day”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 22 January 2015

Our one day tour of the Boyne Valley was a highlight of our Ireland vacation. Our guide, Jim, was wonderful. As we traveled the Irish countryside from an ancient passage tomb to the Hill of Tara, he blended Irish history & culture into a most entertaining web. Our group of 8, ranging in age from 7 to 70, universally agreed that our Boyne Valley trip was our favorite adventure in Ireland.

we booked up for the Celtic Tour but was a bit worried when watching the news the night before because of the amber warnings of wind and snow warnings... knowing we were heading up hills!
But, it turned out alright.... sliding down the hill in the snow was a laugh and the tour was excellent all round.
Cahill was a great guide - very helpful and informative. And for what you got the price was really good.

We have absolutely loved our day tour of the Boyne Valley with Celtic castles. Our guide Shane was amazing, very helpful, full of information and interesting stories and had a very good sense of humor. He even drop us off to our Traditional Irish Storytelling Bus Tour stop after making sure with the guys there that we won't be left behind. All in all, it was really a memorable trip and one of the most beautiful days we've had in ireland. Thank you, would love to come again.
