Fantastic Galway Experience Amazing private tour with our guide Anais. Enjoyable, delicious, and educational all in one tour. It was a great way to experience Galway and all that it has to offer. Highly recommend.

The whiskey tour Anais was a get guide and very knowledgeable. Did a great job handling a couple of old guys on what was a de facto private tour. Decent selection of whiskeys at some great locations. There was an initial hiccup on booking with the meeting location unclear but received a quick response of clarification.

A fun day! This was such a fun day packed with a LOT of food. This is not just a sliver of cheese here and a small chocolate there. No; this was a full-on tasting tour including all types or Irish spirits. Our guide, Claire was knowledgeable and so personable. If you plan to book this tour, I recommend doing it early in your stay so that you can go back and revisit some of the wonderful places you visited. I highly recommend this tour. It will not disappoint!

The Best Way to Discover Galway’s Hidden Gems. This tour was really good value and so interesting. The tastings were many and totally satisfying. The small group format allowed for lots of conversation and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Unique experience is well worth it! Well worth the money spent on this one. We had a fantastic tour with Clare and got to try a wide variety of local food/drink along with some history and a few laughs! I would highly recommend this tour even if food tours aren't really your thing. This was truly a unique experience I don't think I could've done on my own or with another tour company.

Wonderful food and drink tour!! Absolutely loved Galway Food Tours! We had a wonderful afternoon in a small group (2 other couples) tasting a wide variety of Galway’s best. It was really nice variety, including local beer and spirits and a lot of food! It was very well organized and a lot of fun! Would definitely recommend this!!

Friday evening whiskey walk The initial stumbling block - poor directions for the start point - will be addressed, which would have yielded a 5-star review. One other patron, and Joe and I were hosted by Anais. Four venues, with 2-3 tastings at 3, and a gin sampling at the distillery. Food samples at first was a great touch. All was quite easily walkable, and the whiskeys were interesting.

Original, gourmand et passionnant Nous avons adoré cette balade dans le centre historique de Galway qui allie produits frais et locaux, découverte de commerçants de qualité et anecdotes historiques. Anais, excellent guide en anglais ET français (un vrai plus !!) et ce tour on été la très bonne surprise de notre séjour itinérant en Irlande. Nous recommandons vivement cette activité

Great Food Tour A wonderful few hours spent with Anais who showed us many great spots with tasty food. There was a wide variety of food presented including mussels, oysters, whiskey, coffee, pastries, local goat cheese, sushi - we were stuffed when we left.Spots that we visited all had a story and that made it all the more enjoyable.Very recommended for an insider look at Galway and the up and coming food scene.

Fabulous Food Tour!!! WOW WOW WOW! We had a private food tour and Gina was our guide. And oh boy were we impressed. I have experienced many food tours and this food tour was by far one of the best. Not only does Gina come with a culinary background but she’s a knowledgeable local. All of the food we tasted on the tour was absolutely delicious and quality driven. The restaurants and shops were independently owned and we experienced a full range from locally caught fresh fish, Irish roasted coffee, Irish/French chocolates, Irish whiskeys to hand made ice cream. If you can appreciate good quality food and drink and making new friends you will definitely enjoy this tour.I highly recommend this tour and you won’t be disappointed.
