Full description

Leave the music city of Liverpool 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 (not included), a gritty, dark-stoned fortress built by James of St. George in partnership with Frenchman Richard The Engineer.

Afterward, 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.

The tour gives you an overall glimpse of Wales but it is way too rushed. Our driver left a bit late and we had to get back a bit early, because of passengers not his fault. So we had like 15-20 minutes in most places except for the castle + lunch that was 1 hour, which should have been 2 to give people chance to go inside the castle. The places we visited were very nice, but my suggestion is to start one hour earlier. 8:45 is quite late for such a long distance.

The day tour was great sightseeing mountains, hills & countryside. Stopping to view historical sites of the pass & viewing the Irish sea coastal area are a views you have to see. The tour guide was very helpful & understood me speech & mobility issues. Will return the tour was good value for a day trip.

I did the North Wales tour last 22/09/2021. Our tour guide/driver Shelly was fantastic, witty and quite knowledgeable about the places we've been - She gave us enough time to enjoy all our stops and even suggested where to eat or find lovely souvenirs. Itineraries are all lovely and absolutely enjoyed every minute! Thanks again Shelly for the wonderful tour!
