Had a fantastic day out with Frank in north wales. He was very informative and fun for the trip. The places were beautiful and was well organised. The only feedback I would give is sometimes the sound on the speak were a little quiet. Trip wise could of done less stops but had more time at places and often we felt rushed and would have like to enjoyed a little longer in Conwy and bets-Cowy. Definitely would go on another day trip!

Stewart was an incredible guide- funny, informative and a great person! We had a phenomenal time even though the weather played spoiltsport. Our group was also a great bunch of people. Overall a very positive experience and would definitely recommend!
