What people are saying about Powys

The guide was absolutely fantastic and did a wonderful job of engaging everybody in the group. I like that there was some flexibility for us to explore at our own pace at some of the sites. I learned a lot not only about the sites that we visited, but about Wales in general.

Riki was a phenomenal tour guide. He took us all around different places in the southern countryside of Wales, and he was full of knowledge and enthusiasm throughout the whole tour. I had a wonderful experience, and I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone!

Rikki was knowledgeable and friendly, and generously agreed to drive past the address of a long lost relative of mine. The tour was exactly what I wanted, to learn more about some of the ancient heritage and natural beauty of this part of South Wales. Thank you!

I definitely recommend it. This is the opportunity to see very attractive areas, sights and small towns in the interior of Wales.

a fun tour!! Riki was very friendly and knowledgeable
