What people are saying about Wye Valley
The Wye Valley is beautiful and worth seeing on top of the magnificent Tintern Abbey. I was surprised by the Roman ruins, especially the amphiteater which was huge and well preserved. The itinerary as a whole was excellent and paced just right. I loved the smaller buses, and appreciated the musical accompaniment that was selected for us. By far the best part was our driver and tourguide, Adrian. He had the rare ability to animate history, giving us not just a sense of the bigger historical picture, but also the small details that are frequently left out. He is a wonderful person, full of Welsh charm, a delight to talk and listen to. He also took good care of us, drove carefully, patiently explained things to us, and kept us entertained for the entire day.
What a great experience. I loved the pace and enjoyed every part of the tour. Plenty of time to explore or chill out. The highlight for me was Tintern Abbey, where I was transported to another time and brought scenes from novels such as Ken Follet's 'world without end' to life.
Friendly, knowledgable, service oriented. Great personal touches - Welsh Cakes when you need a lift. Great destinations. Good timing. And some of the nicest fellow travelers from all over the world you will ever meet.
Wonderful scenic tour of the beautiful Wye Valley. Tintern Abbey is breathtaking. Our guide Adrian was fun, engaging, and informative. I highly recommend this tour.
The tour was great because of the selection of stops, the knowledge of the guide, and the fantastic weather.
