Enjoyed our nine hour trip around a small piece of Wales. Chris was very passionate about his country and its history. We learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed his stories of Welsh history. The sites were what we hoped to see and the portion of the trip through the Snowdonia Mountains was breathtaking. Loved every minute of our adventure. Only advice would be a better stop for lunch. Very little choice and we were quite hungry. Highly recomend this tour.

We enjoyed our trip with Chris who was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Wales and kept us entertained the whole journey. We highly recommend this activity as we saw many items of interest that we would otherwise have missed.

It was a wonderful experience. The guide was very interactive and nice. I would recommend to visit from this.

We enjoyed all aspects of the tour. Small group was good. Was given lots of history to research.

Beautiful it was and our guide was very informative and helpful.
