Travel through the Welsh Marches marked out by the ancient Offa’s Dyke. Head into the heart of the Cambrian Mountains and beautiful Elan Valley. Finally, head to the beautiful seaside town and cultural center of Aberystwyth, where you spend the next two nights. Day 2: Travel to the mountainous region of Snowdonia National Park. Visit the mountain village of Beddgelert to see the famous grave of Gelert, the legendary dog, or explore the nearby copper mine. Next, head to the town of Machynlleth to see the ancient clock tower and the quaint houses, and go antique hunting. Move on to Porthmadog and over the Cob causeway before reaching the impenetrable medieval Harlech Castle. After a fulfilling day, return to Aberystwyth in the late afternoon. Day 3: Travel around the coast of Cardigan Bay through Aberaeron to New Quay. Explore the picturesque harbor and get the chance to spot dolphins and whales.

Travel to the tiny cathedral city of St Davids for lunch and exploration, and stop in the county town of Pembroke to enter the thick medieval walls of the castle. From here, return to Tenby for a relaxed evening. Day 5: Leaving Tenby in the morning, begin your return journey to London. Head past the industrial cities of South Wales to the outskirts of Cardiff, and visit the outdoor National History Museum. Take the Severn Bridge back into England, and take a break at Castle Combe, a Cotswold village perfect for a relaxed stroll amongst 16th-century ironstone cottages.

From London: Stonehenge and Bath Full-Day Tour

2. From London: Stonehenge and Bath Full-Day Tour

Travel back to prehistoric England on a full-day sightseeing tour from London and explore the mysteries of one of the world’s most enigmatic sites. Traveling by luxury air-conditioned vehicle, drive across the beautiful county of Wiltshire to Salisbury Plain. Here lies the awe-inspiring stone circle of Stonehenge, a mysterious site that continues to confound historians. As you tour the site, hear theories of how it was a temple to worship the sun, a healing center, a burial site and even an immense calendar. Explore how the mighty stones were carried to Salisbury Plain using only the most primitive of tools. Then, continue to the city of Bath on the banks of the River Avon. Explore the first city in England to be designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, admiring attractions such as the 15th-century Bath Abbey, the stunning Georgian architecture of the Royal Crescent and the romantic Pulteney Bridge, modeled on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. No visit to Bath would be complete without seeing the Roman Baths that gave the city its name. This beautifully preserved complex still flows with water from Britain’s only hot spring. Marvel at the dazzling torch-lighting ceremony as dusk falls (not available on summer tours) and sip the healing waters in the stunning Neo-Classical Pump Room.

This was our second booking our first was cancelled Monday due to the Queen’s funeral. Our tour Guide Eileen was fun and gave us a lot of history on everything. How Eileen remembered everyone’s name was amazing. Paolo was our driver he made sure we were safe and cool when our air went out on the bus. It was a great tour and we enjoyed. We got to spend ample time in both spots to take pictures grab a bite to eat. The tour didn’t feel rushed.

Outstanding cultural and historical tour of central and western Wales

Dan provided an outstanding cultural and historical tour of Wales through his witty humor and vast knowledge of the area. We enjoyed soaking up the scenery from picturesque back country lanes to villages bordering the sea, castles, manor houses, and quaint market towns. Dan was not only our guide, but a new found friend!! It’s a tour we’ll never forget and will cherish always.

I really enjoyed the 5 day trip to Wales! It was my first tour with Rabbies, and I couldn't be happier. the small group size was great and we all got along super well by the last night... we didn't want it to end. Rob and his trusty sidekick Draco was helpful and full of so much knowledge! I would travel with them again!

Excellent tour Saw everything we wanted to see Great Guide and Driver
