    A lot of good picture opportunities - stunning views (We were also lucky with great weather in November).
    Not much historical information given from the bus driver at all. Would have liked more context given on the locations visited. The Cave included a guided tour from the staff there, but we were left to our own devices for Cliffs, Burren, and Dunguaire Castle.
    Didn't have much time at Aillwee Cave with the kids Christmas activities going on.
    It wasn't really clear that we were stopping at another place for food, so our group was trying to get food at the caves, thinking it was our last chance for the day to purchase any lunch.

    You get exposure to a lot of the tourist-y places - the Cliffs, Burren, a castle, a cave, corkscrew road, etc. all in one day. It's good for a tight schedule and travelers not very interested in historical context.

    We really enjoyed our tour of the Cliffs, the Burren, and the cave.The tour guide and driver, Martin, was very informative and funny. This was the best adventure of our trip to Ireland.

    The tour was great - our guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable of the Burren region and history. The Cliffs of Moher are such an epic stop on the tour, but the Allwee Caves and "Mini Cliffs" were really enjoyable stops along the way as well. There was several other great photos stops as well. I really enjoyed lunch in Doolin but only wish there was more time available to explore in the town. This tour is well worth it - enjoy!

    We happened to do this tour on a rainy day, now I know it rains in Ireland so we thought we were prepared! Our tour driver was not very responsive to the weather and the activities involved. We were suppose to stop at the castle first but since it was raining he opted to do this on the way back. We then proceed to the Cliffs where it was torrential downpours. The driver dropped us off on the otherside of the entrance and we were soaked by the time we got to the gate. We had 90 minutes here and spent most of it in the gift shop! We quickly ran up the hill to catch a view and by the time we got back down you could ring us out we were so wet! I know the driver could not control the weather but he could have done a few things differently. After the Cliffs we went to lunch and the rain stopped. We had 35 minutes for lunch , we felt he should have switched the itinerary around to accommodate the weather and us. After lunch we went to the castle which was now closed! All in all we had a miserable day! There were 11 people on that tour and quite honestly they should have just cancelled it that day because of the weather. This was my first bad experience with a Viator tour. I would recommend this tour just NOT with this company!

    The two day trips were perfect. The Coach Drivers were very professional, friendly and well humoured. The coach was clean and comfortable.

    Our driver Gerard was incredibly knowledgeable and you could tell he knew his stuff. Super interesting. The only thing I would change was the amount of time (would be better to have 3 hours) and time of day at the Cliffs. I'd like to do that first thing in the morning instead of the cave, because when we arrived around midday, the cliffs were super packed. Other than that, it was a great trip!

    This is a very relaxing and informative way to see these sites. Our guide provided a bit of historical information about the area and sites along the way. The roads driving to these areas are quite narrow and very twisting in areas. Having the comfort of an experienced driver made the trip relaxing and enjoyable. The time allotted at each stop was sufficient to explore the activities without feeling rushed.

    This tour provided us the opportunity to see everything we wanted to see outside of the city without having to rent a car ourselves. The caves are an additional 6 euro/person for the tour, but it was worth it. The cliffs of course were amazing, and we also got to see the small town of Doolin and a couple of other stops. There is no tour of the castle, only photo opportunities, but by that time, we were pretty tired anyway. For anyone with motion sickness, there are some windy roads at the beginning around the caves (I learned the hard way with this)! Overall, great experience, and the bus guide and the cave guides were both great!

    Our morning began with pick-up from the front door of the Salthill Hotel! Patrick was friendly, knowledgeable and had a wonderful sense of humor. We loved the comfy coach bus and wonderful views. Patrick filled us in on all the sights on the way. The cave was fun and entertaining. Loved the spectacular views from the Cliffs! Our lunch stop was delicious with authentic Irish fare and a cozy warm fire. Smooth ride and lots of laughs. We’re from Pennsylvania and not accustomed to the tight driving pathways. It was great to be driven in luxury by an experienced driver! Thank you Patrick! We’ll never forget it!

    Our driver, Gerard, was a wonderful guide and provided historic details for the sights we visited. The cliffs were awesome, note: be prepared to walk a lot. The cave venue was great (although I opted to hike above ground to enjoy the beautiful views instead of venturing underground). We had an extra stop to view amazing rock formations by the sea which was not on the schedule. The Doolin Pub was a treat where we enjoyed authentic Irish comfort food and a Pint. Even though the castle was closed we were able to enjoy the views and take some incredible photos of the exterior. All in all, the tour was a great value and a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
