    5 day Wales Tour

    We enjoyed the tour very much with the one exception that there were at least two too many castles! The rest of the itinerary was great. Our tour guide Andy was cheerful, knowledgeable and helpful, looking up anything that was inquired ab...out, and he kept all his passengers motivated with a "photo competition". The visit to the " Village Through Time" was very good and most interesting, giving a broad background to the rest of the tour. Perhaps more contact with the local people would add some variety, such as a visit to a local Farmers Market or fish markets at fishing village? Read full review
