Full description

Leave the bustling city of Manchester and travel to Wales on a 90-minute fully-narrated journey arriving at Llandudno. Visit the 12th-century hidden chapel of St. Tudno on the Great Orme.

Next is the walled town of Conwy, constructed in 1283 with a fabulous 3/4-mile wall circuit. Go inside Conwy Castle, a gritty, dark-stoned fortress built by James of St. George in partnership with the french Richard The Engineer.

Head into Snowdonia National Park using carefully-selected, off-the-beaten-track routes with a stop at the “capital of North Wales”: Betws-Y-Coed prayer house in the woods.

Finally, take the unique opportunity to experience the Pontcysyllte Canal Aqueduct, built by Sir Thomas Telford between 1795 and 1805. Prepare to be entertained and informed by your experienced guide and driver.

Had a fantastic day out with Frank in north wales. He was very informative and fun for the trip. The places were beautiful and was well organised. The only feedback I would give is sometimes the sound on the speak were a little quiet. Trip wise could of done less stops but had more time at places and often we felt rushed and would have like to enjoyed a little longer in Conwy and bets-Cowy. Definitely would go on another day trip!

The trip was so much better than I even expected: the Welsh nature was breath-taking and the tour delivered when it said that we will be taken off the most common roads. Besides, the company itself was trustworthy and easy to communicate with when I had some unexpected problems pre-trip. I would thoroughly recommend the trip and the company!

North Wales is so beautiful and we got to see a lot in one day with our wonderful guide and driver Shelley! Shelley kept us entertained throughout the ride and tried to give as much time as possible at each stop. Like most of these tours, you stop somewhere amazing and could spend hours and hours there but you just get a taste of everything on a day tour. Good reason to visit again! Conwy Castle was beautiful! Make sure to visit smallest house in Britain also, as it’s quite a little wonder. In order to fit in more sightseeing at the lunch stop, I would suggest grabbing something to go so you can walk around. One thing to note is that the meeting point for the tour is at Manchester Airport which was a bit of a surprise to me. I’ve taken several day tours in my 6 months of traveling in Europe, and prior, and all of them had a city center pick up option. I understand meeting at the airport saves time from city traffic but it’s a bit inconvenient for the customer.
