What people are saying about Winchester

It was a great experience. So cool and relaxing…the picturesque villages like Conwy, Beddgelert and Betws y Coed and the breathtaking landscapes. Don’t miss the optional… it’s worth seeing the place. The driver - Darren gave us a lot of information all throughout the 3 day tour started from Manchester, to Snowdonia and North Wales and brought us safe to all the places. The Mercedes Benz mini van was comfortable. The tour was operated by Rabbies. Highly recommended .

This was an awesome trip in Wales. Many areas were visited with wonderful scenery everywhere.
