It was an amazing journey with a very funny and interesting driver-guide by the name of Damian. I liked the way that he explained things and kept the spirits of all passengers high all the time. The people in the village of the island were very helpful, everything was well organized and I befriended a lot of people throughout the journey. Highly recommend it!

Great tour, it was an awesome experience to see the cliffs of Moher from the sea and from the top of the cliffs.
