Guided Day Tours
NEW FOR 2020
On our day tours we will take all the responsibility of looking after you and your group for the day. No more driving on unfamiliar roads, trying to read maps and road signs. We will pick you up at your accommodation and leave you back at the end of the tour.
We have put together 5 tours to take you and your group to some of the most amazing places in the North West. We can also do bespoke tours for private, corporate, and family groups. This gives you a great opportunity to see and learn about Donegal from a local tour guide. True North can also accommodate travel to or from all major airports in the area.

Having been on many a bike tour with Bernard over the last 10 years . Scotland, England, France and every corner of Ireland. He has a great knowledge of the best roads to ride, great navigation skills and knows the best places to get a good cup of coffee. There is not a better man to lead you on your way around this beautiful island of ours. With all the local knowledge and experience Bernard has I can guarantee that anyone taking one of his self guided or guided tours will travel the best roads and see the best this country has to offer . So if you want to see the best that we have to offer go with Bernard and True North bike tours.
I had an amazing five day motorcycle tour throughout Donegal with True North Bike Tours. Our guide, Bernard showed us amazing sights and places that I would have never discovered on my own, despite the extensive research I do before my trips. I still have vivid images in my mind of the stunning view from a lookout high above of the Foyle River, the spectacularly beautiful and peaceful ride through farmland and rolling hills on route to Letterkenny, and the exhilarating (and slightly terrifying) ride through the Glengesh Pass that Bernard gave me the confidence to do. I hope to ride with True North Bike Tours again.
