This full and varied day out is designed to show the best of (this part of) Wales, and it really hits the mark. Riki was knowledgeable, personable and didn't overburden you with dry facts, unless you wanted it. He was keen to share his enthusiasm and ensure we had a splendid day out. I originally thought it quite expensive, but we had 9 hours of fascinating views and sites to enjoy, so the value was great. Enjoyed being in a small group too. Could not have been bettered.

The tour is amazing! The guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. We’ve seen many places in a short period of time. I thought there is a hike to see waterfall but didn’t get to do it maybe because it’s raining. Otherwise enjoyed everything in the tour including lunch, so good.
