“Galway is an amazing city and the walking tour helped me to discover the city's history and details...A fantastic tour to do when in Galway”.
“Although I live in Galway City and already know a good bit of history of the place, it’s still always good to hear another person’s take on the place especially as the guide was Italian, I learnt stuff I never knew and the other people on the tour were also very interesting. Altogether a very relaxing and enjoyable experience”.
“I really enjoyed the 'Stories and Wisdom' guided walk at Coole Park and found the guide's knowledge of trees and their folklore to be excellent!”
“Our walk last Sunday Italy Galway and Ireland a shared history was very interesting. We never realised that there was such a strong connection between Italy and Galway. The route taken for our walk was very central including many historical highlights of the city and luckily for us we had unexpected sunshine all the way. A day to remember!”
