Full description
Leave the Roman city of Chester and travel to Wales on a 90-minute, fully-narrated journey arriving at Llandudno. Visit the 12th-century hidden chapel of St. Tudno on the Great Orme. Next is the walled town of Conwy, constructed in 1283 with a fabulous 3/4-mile wall circuit. Go inside Conwy Castle, a gritty, dark-stoned fortress built by James of St. George in partnership with Frenchman Richard The Engineer. Afterwards, head to Snowdonia National Park using carefully-selected, off-the-beaten-track routes with a stop at the so-called “capital of North Wales,” Betws-Y-Coed prayer house in the woods. Finally, take the unique opportunity to experience the Pontcysyllte Canal Aqueduct, built by Sir Thomas Telford between 1795 and 1805. Prepare to be entertained and informed by your experienced guide and driver along the way.

Really enjoyed it! Stewart, the guide, was very kind and friendly and told many interesting things. The only bad thing was that we couldn't see the aqueduct because it was under construction and we were only in Betsw-Y-Coed to see a commercial area, with nothing of interest. We also spent very little time in Snowdonia and all the stops were very fast.

Our daytrip was cancelled due to inclement weather, and we did the alternative that was offered, the Lake District tour. Had a good day. Boattrip was cancelled there as well, also due to the weather, and tourguide Stuart offered us a walk to a waterfall as an alternative, which we absolutely loved! A sidenote: the guide was friendly and witty but not very experienced. He had trouble finding the songs he wanted to play on his radio and messed with a lot, whilst driving, which did not seem very safe to us. A carefully selected playlist on a mobile phone near to the steering wheel would have been safer, and more convenient for driver and guests. Hopefully he will get this right in the nearby future. He did a good job otherwise, telling stories and making us laugh.
