What a great experience!! Wilma made this trip so much more than just cycling....she made it about Ireland, its history, its culture, its people and its beauty. I highly recommend. As a novice cyclist, she made it comfortable and highly enjoyable and made sure we all understood there were no expectations - except have fun and enjoy!! I'd definitely go back.

My husband and I did a nine night self guided tour in Connemara and the Aran Islands in May 2023.
Everything was perfectly planned thanks to Wilma and her team. Toni and Isaac met us on our arrival in Galway and we went over our route in detail, with lots of good information and pointers from them. The maps and cue sheets were excellent.
Our route was a cyclists delight with beautiful scenery with very little traffic. We liked all our accommodations, and splurged on two nights at Ballynahinch Castle, a real treat.
All in all, a wonderful way to experience the landscape and culture of this corner of Ireland.

We did the 4 day "Jewels of Galway/Connemara" self guided tour. Highly recommend this adventure for families and/or couples. Everything was seamless. Weather was a mix but honestly that only added to the charm. The bikes were great, accommodations quaint and welcoming, and the routes sooo beautiful.

We even had an accident. Our 16 year old fell off his bike and had a cut under his eye. The staff met us on the road and arranged medical care. It turned out to be minor, thank goodness.

The staff of Green Marble were extremely friendly and professional. David and Isaac thank you for everything!

What a perfect adventure that Green Marble planned. All we had to do was Eat, Sleep and Pedal and they did the rest.

This route through Connemara has been carefully designed so as to provide an excellent week's cycling, although having been to the area before we deviated at times from the given routes using our own maps. On the whole the roads are quiet and the scenery is stunning whether cycling through the mountains or by the sea. For those interested in history (ancient and modern) there is plenty to see along the way. Spending two nights at Clifden and Westport gives scope for flexibility and time to look round the towns. As a sea swimmer I was able to bathe every day at some beautiful beaches with golden sands. The accommodation was varied (hotels, guesthouses and a B&B) but generally excellent with friendly hosts and great breakfasts. There are pubs and cafes along the way where you can refuel. The hire bikes were of a very high standard and comfortable to ride - we had no problems at all with them.

We just wrapped up our 12-day self-guided Along the Wild Atlantic Way tour organized by Green Marble Tours (Ireland) and could not have been happier with everything! Planning started with Wilma who was incredibly helpful and answered all our questions quickly. She made sure we were prepared before we arrived in Ireland. Then came David with our first day orientation that included delivering our bikes and making sure we knew how to use our bikes (e-bikes). He provided us with daily trip sheets that included turn-by-turn directions, what to look for, daily maps and the gpx files (that were emailed to us before our departure). Every B & B booked for us expected us and our bicycles and our luggage was always waiting for us to arrive at our next destination. Even the B & B that overlooked our reservation was resolved before we arrived; we weren’t even aware there was an issue. Green Marble staff thought of everything! It was a sad day when we left the bicycles behind at our last B & B. If you’re looking to enjoy a trouble-free cycling trip along the Atlantic in Ireland, Green Marble will have you covered ~ MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 😃!
By the way, the views are spectacular and you should not skip out on any of the extra cycling loops; don’t cheat yourself of this incredible experience. If we could do it all over again we would AND we’d add a few extra days of cycling because it ended too soon.

Green Marble is an exceptionally professional bike tour company. We did a self-guided tour in Connemara. Pre-trip communication from Wilma was excellent: Clear, prompt, and detailed. The trip was customizable even within their pre-set trip schedule and we were provided with gps bike navigation files before we even landed in Ireland, offering for multiple route options based on our requests. This level of service really helped us with peace of mind in a new country with famously rural roadways.

We had an excellent orientation with David upon arrival, including a review of the maps and thoughtful suggestions for stops along the way. We felt well supported throughout the trip. Our luggage was delivered to each location seamlessly. The tandem bike we rented was in great shape. Honestly, this is among the top tier of bike rental companies I've encountered, just a class act.

I just finished a six day bike ride using Green Marble Tours. My experience was a positive one but not without some problems.

The BnB's were very good as well as the hosts at these BnB's.

The Bike shop was excellent and determined to get us fitted with the proper bikes and proper gear. Our bikes performed very well. One bike broke a spoke and the outfitter drove out and replaced the wheel.

The Maps were a nightmare. The directions, though detailed, did not provide clear information nor constant information. There were days that we had to stop at every intersection and try to verify we were at the correct place. Many times it required using our phone GPS, but sometimes we were out of phone coverage area which left us guessing. We did a lot of extra miles because of this.

I liked the routes in general and recommend Green Marble Tours rewrite the directions from top to bottom to spare future riders from the problems we experienced..

We cycled around Galway Bay, through the Burren, to Inishmore and Connemara.
Every day was an exceptional experience, beautiful bicycle routes were laid out for us. Everything was arranged down to the last detail so that we could fully enjoy our
trips. We thank Green Marble Tours for the friendly and professional organization.

The places we stayed were all so nice and the maps and details were so organized. We really appreciated their thoroughness and thoughtfulness in supporting our trip. The scenery was incredible and there was just the right amount of support/detail and flexibility to do what we wanted. The electric bikes that I and my daughter road were AMAZING! And they even arranged for nice weather! Felt like we were riding through a postcard the whole time!
