Good day trip but potential to improve the schedule

The day trip was a good trip in general and the Rhossili Bay is lovely. However, the first stop of the trip in a small museum (and also a loo stop) is a waste of time. There is not much to see in the museum and everyone could postpone the loo break until the next stop (where toilets are also available). This would affect the time one has at Rhossili Bay. With more time there it would be possible to go to the top of the beak and to the causeway (or the beach) instead of picking one out of three. Would also advise people to eat a quick snack after the costal walk.

Fabulous experience, thoroughly enjoyable.

I am wary of bus tours as a rule, but this one restored my faith! Well planned, great itinerary, wonderful scenery, plenty of stops and a guide who was courteous, entertaining and informative. We were fully apprised of every ETA with helpful advice to get the most out of each stopping point, and despite a most unexpected traffic jam on a very narrow stretch of road, were only five minutes later than planned arriving at our lunch stop. Bus was comfortable and air conditioned, and if I have any gripe it was that the musIc could have been a bit louder, though the commentary was quite audible. Would definitely recommend and would have taken another trip if there had been a vacancy during my stay.

An amazing way to see beautiful Wales!

I was traveling with my two children 9 and 11 and this was a perfect way to get out of the city and see the coast of Wales. Our tour guide, John, was very kind and knowledgeable about each area we were visiting. Every stop was amazing and an incredible opportunity for photos. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone want it to see more of beautiful Wales!
