We had a great day with Riki. It was just the two of us so very relaxed. A good couple of walks is long the coast that were enjoyable even in October. Great views as you walked too. Had a great pub lunch as well. Thank you Riki for a great day, definitely a highlight of our trip to Cardiff and the surrounding area.

Had the most amazing time on this tour ! Everything was perfect and well planned. We got to see so much of beautiful Wales, all the hidden gems, while being informed about the history. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone !

Be forewarned as it involved a lot of walking, most of it moderately challenging. Varies among gravel, rocky, paved, & dirt paths. Easy to slip & wrench an ankle on loose or protruding stones.

We had a wonderful tour with an awesome guide. We saw lots of fantastic Welsh countryside scenery which was the goal. Be advised there is a great deal of walking on this tour.

Amazing trip highly recommend it for lone travellers and for families etc
