Professional, Expert Tour.
We travelled To Dublin from the US and and on short notice Michael arranged a delightful
custom tour to the Hill of Tara, Knowth, and Newgrange. He is a professional tour guide
and delivers what should be expected and more. It was especially delightful that he
resides in the Valley area we visited, and knows every hill and mound to be spoken of,
as well as the history and customs of the area, and local personalities and friends.
We were conveniently picked up and dropped off at our hotel in Dublin, and toured
in a super clean luxury vehicle. Highly recommended!

Best tour from a World Traveler!
I travel the world for business and get to spend a few extra days touring the local sites.
I must admit, the tour with Michael is at the top of the list for favorite tours. My wife
went with me on this trip to Ireland and surprised me with this tour she arranged.
We had the best day! We went all over Boyne valley and visited three times more sites
than if we went on a tour bus. This alone made it worthwhile! When I say this is the
best tour I've been on... I mean it. and I've been on safaris, Harley excursions, and
been on trips around the world. If you go to Ireland you have to try and get Michael
to show you around if he is available! You will definitely have the best tourist guide in Ireland!

Fabulous Tour of the Boyne Valley
My friend and I were picked up early at our B & B in Dublin by Michael and
brought to Newgrange and Knowth for the early morning tours before the tourist
busses arrived. We had originally decided not to see Knowth but Michael convinced
us it was worth checking out and he was right. We loved that there was ample
time to explore. Then Michael took us to several other sites tailored to
our interests including a visit to Kells and the sacred sites there. We
especially enjoyed Loughcrew where we were about the only people there
later in the day, and afterwards we spent some time at Fourknocks where
we had the opportunity to experience this sacred space with no one else around.
Michael was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and he clearly enjoys sharing his
love of the special places of the Boyne Valley. Michael's tour was one of the
highlights of our 2 week stay in Ireland.
