"One of the highlights of the trip was the private day tour we took with Michael Fox.
We told him we wanted to see ancient places and sacred sites, and that's exactly what
his Boyne Valley Tour had to offer. The sites were breathtaking in their beauty and place
in Irish history. Michael was such a good host and guide. He was very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and accommodating."
"Michael Fox provides the most amazing and personal tour. I booked a private day tour (Boyne Valley) with
Michael and he took me to so many places I do not think I would have ever made it to without his guidance.
He is so knowledgeable about all the sites and brings a personal touch to the experience you would never
get taking a large group tour on a bus."
