Our tour guide was brilliant, so funny and Knowledgeable man. Conwy castle was so beautiful. Chester Catedral was amazing and architecture just WOW. Snowdonia mountains took our breaths away, the most beautiful views. This tour definitely is good value for money. I strongly recommend it to anyone.

The scenery of north Wales combined with the sights of Chester made this a really enjoyable tour. I appreciated the flexibility we had during our stops to explore on our own. Clive was an excellent guide who kept us on schedule and shared interesting information throughout the day. I would highly recommend him and this tour.

The trip in general was good and the guide was very good, friendly and informative, but I was a little disappointed that there were only two little mini-stops in the Snowdonia national park. Would have loved to see more of the national park to admire the mountains and take pictures as Snowdonia is the 1st mention in the tour name. For me, a bit too much free time was given in Conwy and Betws-y-Coed, because they're very small towns and not much to do there. But overall the tour was good and enjoyable and we were lucky with the weather.

The entire trip was enjoyable, with breathtaking views. Conwy castle was the highlight of our journey. The castle is simply awe inspiring and so well preserved. Chester is another place that we enjoyed very much. The Roman amphitheatre, the cathedral… the city is full of history.

Forget about getting there 15 minutes early - the tour bus did not even arrive until 15 minutes after the scheduled departure. After that, however, the tour was great and very glad I went.
