We really enjoyed the tour and Michael's sense of humor. He gave the tour an extra edge of entertainment. We were able to see visit numerous places on Inishmore and had a couple hours to see the fantastic sites on our own.

It was nice to get a tour of part of the island by a local. There was quite a bit of waiting though. Just must of been an off day. Felt rushed each time we stopped because we were late being picked up.

Michael is an excellent and congenial tour guide. The trip around Aran was so different from elsewhere in Ireland. So much history. Be warned, the trip in the ferry is rough. If you get seasick, take precautions and don't sit at the front of the...More
