We came up to North Wales in late September having had to cancel our trip to Kenya due to the epidemic. Chris met us of the train from London and we spent 2 wonderful days touring the fabulous scenery and sites of the area. We spent time exploring castles and deserted beaches that could have been in the Caribbean. We’ll definitely be back!

WHY NORTH WALES?
North Wales is an ancient and unspoilt land where history meets legend, mountains flow into the sea, mediaeval architecture meets industrial revolution, world-class outdoor pursuits meet 1st class travel and an ancient language and unique Celtic culture meet 5 start Hotels and a flourishing foodie scene.
Being less internationally renowned than its better-known neighbours, North Wales is less trodden by tourism and still unspoilt enough to feel real. With a hugely diverse range of attractions, entertainment and activities, its endlessly fascinating and praised by the Rough Guide as ‘the most beguiling part of the British isles’ and ‘’one of the finest natural playgrounds in Europe’’.
Wales may be a small country, but it’s packed with things to see and do – and all the main attractions of North Wales are within a relatively small area making it ideal for day trips from a central base. There are a number of fabulous hotels and restaurants in the area which we can advise on.
North Wales also has excellent travel links with the rest of the UK. Manchester Airport, the UK’s largest international airport outside of London, is less than an hour’s drive from the North Wales border. Ferries from Anglesey’s Holyhead Port link directly to Dublin in Ireland and trains from Chester and Crewe, just across the border, link directly into the UK mainline rail network. The English Lake District, Scotland, The Cotswolds and London are all less than a half-day drive away.
No wonder the Rough Guide voted Wales as one of the top 10 countries in the World to visit.

Recently we needed to travel from Bath to Conwy in North Wales in one day. Rather than have a plain transfer, along the motorways through the industrial English Midlands, we had a wonderful full day tour with Chris from North Wales Guided Tours. He took us along the scenic route, colloquially known as Route 66. It was fantastic and we couldn’t have been happier with the trip. Chris took us through stunning countryside – lush green valleys, rugged mountain areas, seaside and quaint small villages. We stopped several times for refreshments and photo opportunities. Chris himself was very pleasant to be with and gave us plenty of interesting history about various aspects of Wales. His late model Mercedes van was nice and clean and very comfortable.
We thoroughly recommend Chris from North Wales Guided Tours, and this scenic tour in particular.
Chris was an excellent tour guide and put together a most enjoyable day out for us on our 2 days round Snowdonia. His commentary was most informative and entertaining, and nothing was too much trouble. We had a great tour!
Dear Chris. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of North Wales Guided Tours for our pickup from the Cotswolds, 3 days in North Wales and transfer up to the lake District. The highlight of our whole trip to the UK was the visit to Ashton Hall, the house that my ancestor had lived in before moving to America in the 1700s. Considering you managed to locate the Hall and organise a personal visit from the tiniest scrap of information I’d mentioned in passing – you definitely went above and beyond and I can’t thank you enough.
We spent a wonderful winter weekend touring North Wales last January with North Wales Guided Tours. My wife, 2 children and I travelled by train from London and Chris was waiting for us at Chester Train station for the journey into Wales and our luxury 5 Star Hotel. We then spent 2 days great days getting to know North Wales with Chris. Such a beautiful place – even in winter. As soon as we got back home to London, the guidebooks were out planning for our next visit in the summer.
During our travels around Europe over the last few years, we’ve been fortunate enough to stay in top end Hotels and get guide recommendations from the Concierges. The guides invariably mirror you: worldly, passionate and steeped in regional history. We so much enjoyed our time with you, including our compressed history lesson on Wales. Now I can go home and read more about your wonderful country.
