What people are saying about Great Orme, Wales

North Wales is so beautiful and we got to see a lot in one day with our wonderful guide and driver Shelley! Shelley kept us entertained throughout the ride and tried to give as much time as possible at each stop. Like most of these tours, you stop somewhere amazing and could spend hours and hours there but you just get a taste of everything on a day tour. Good reason to visit again! Conwy Castle was beautiful! Make sure to visit smallest house in Britain also, as it’s quite a little wonder. In order to fit in more sightseeing at the lunch stop, I would suggest grabbing something to go so you can walk around. One thing to note is that the meeting point for the tour is at Manchester Airport which was a bit of a surprise to me. I’ve taken several day tours in my 6 months of traveling in Europe, and prior, and all of them had a city center pick up option. I understand meeting at the airport saves time from city traffic but it’s a bit inconvenient for the customer.

The trip was so much better than I even expected: the Welsh nature was breath-taking and the tour delivered when it said that we will be taken off the most common roads. Besides, the company itself was trustworthy and easy to communicate with when I had some unexpected problems pre-trip. I would thoroughly recommend the trip and the company!

Ήταν μια όμορφη εκδρομή γεμάτη όμορφα τοπία. Ο ξεναγός Frank ήταν τέλειος, διασκεδαστικός και μας ενημέρωνε για τα πάντα (ιστορία κλπ). Ήταν μια εμπειρία που άξιζε τα λεφτά και τον χρόνο.

The guide/ drive is awesome. We had so much fun. It was beyond my expectations and my parents love it. They dont mind going again.

Well paced and fun. Well informed. Interesting. Paced well.
