Fue una buena experiencia en lo que pudimos descubrir los aspectos más importantes de la ciudad de Galway. Hizo un día muy malo pero aún así conseguimos hacer el recorrido completo. Buena experiencia

I was very good! I'd like to underline that the guide speaks so clearly, with a neutral accent, so it's good for foreign tourists. Thank you! Cristian Salvi 🇦🇷

Joe was absolutely amazing. He was very funny and open to every single question we had. His personality really helped us to enjoy the windy and rainy weather. The tour was not too long and very informative. You could tell this guy knows what he is talking about ! Loved it

My sister and I booked a free walking tour of Galway—and Killian was our guide. The day was wet and gloomy, but our tour was AWESOMEQ! Killian showed us all around the city, teaching us the history of Galway, and bringing us to various points of interest. Along the way he told us stories about the city and we got a true feel of Galway by the end of our tour. Probably because of the weather, we were the only two people on the tour so we essentially got our own private tour of the city. Killian was incredibly personable and we had an excellent time with him as he showed us around his city. He clearly loves his city and his enthusiasm for its uniqueness and its history shines through during his tour. We would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone. And we would highly recommend Killian as your tour guide.
