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.

Riki was a great guide - just the right amount of information to keep you informed and entertained but not overloaded. Great itinerary with fabulous scenery. Would be difficult to beat this trip.

Excellent guide "Ricki"extremely knowledgeable. The day was so relaxing, but yet adventurous, and saw some amazing sites and places, that would never know about.

It was a very very nice day! The guide explained us very well!
