Chris was the perfect guide and local host to explore Wales! He's very passionate and knowledgeable about the area, was very engaging throughout and added funny stories to all his explanations! The tour covered quite a lot in under a day and it's the perfect intro to Snowdonia, especially if you don't have a car or aren't local.

Chris enchanted us with pieces of the magnificent history of Wales and the amazing Welsh people, catching our interest with witty remarks and fun stories. Definitely the tour you want to do if you want to learn more about Wales enjoying the breathtaking scenery and picturesque places it has to offer.

Me and my wife booked one day group tour for Portmeirion, castles and Snowdonia. We had an amazing time and Chris is very knowledgeable and friendly guide who told us a lot about Welsh culture and history. Although the weather was not that great (mostly rainy) we thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
