Full description

Leave the bustling city of Manchester 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 the french Richard The Engineer.

Head into Snowdonia National Park using carefully-selected, off-the-beaten-track routes with a stop at the “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 in between 1795 and 1805. Prepare to be entertained and informed from your experienced guide and driver.

Had a great driver and the group on the bus was easy to get on with

While the tour had more driving time than I had anticipated all the stops were interesting and informative as well as being very diverse. An added bonus, to help with all the riding, was the 2 walks offered; 1 within Snowdonia and the other across the aqueduct. Llandudno was interesting and the Georgian architecture was wonderful. Conwy Castle was a wonderful experience and worth the price alone.

Another very well organized trip by Busy Bus, worth every penny! We visited a charming Welsh town of Llandudno where we were surprised to see naturally growing palm trees. From there we drove to Conwy where we could admire an impressive defensive castle from the 13th century and take a walk around the city walls. Pity there was not enough time to visit the castle. In Conwy on the beach, those of us who wanted could visit the smallest house in Great Britain. The next stop was in Snowdonia where we took a short hike close to a small waterfall. The next and last stop was at the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, which those of us who wanted could cross to admire the area from a bird’s eye view. There was enough time to take photos and enjoy the beauty of Welsh landscapes. Our guide, Steward, made the trip even more interesting by providing us with historical facts and other curiosities about the region. The trip would be even nicer if it was extended for one hour to be able to visit the castle.
