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!
North Wales is ideally positioned in the centre of the British isles to link to other areas of the UK and Ireland, quickly and easily, without long transfer times.
To the west, Ireland is a quick 3-hour ferry ride from Holyhead Port or a short 45 min hop from Liverpool or Manchester Airports. The English Lake District is a 2-and-a-half-hour drive north whilst Edinburgh is a half-day drive or 2-hour train ride from Manchester Piccadilly railway station. To the south, The Cotswolds, the Southwest and London are all half-day drives or shorter railway rides.
Our driver/guides have extensive experience of touring in other areas of the UK such as South and Mid Wales, the Cotswolds, and the English Lake District. In other areas such as the South West, Yorkshire, London, Scotland and Ireland we work with partners who are the local specialists.
We can organise transfer tour days between any of these areas and North Wales for you. You can then either continue your tour with your Welsh driver/guide or meet up with one of our recommended local partners to continue your holiday with them.
Have a look at some of the options below and, when you are ready, tell us where, when, and how you would like to travel, and what you’d like to see and do, and we will seamlessly link your time in North Wales into your bigger vacation of the British isles.
Excellent private tour of North Wales arranged at short notice; reassuring COVID security and excellent local knowledge.
Seamless, friendly and professional service in a brand-new luxury Mercedes. Fantastic local knowledge too. We felt very well looked after. Thank you, Chris!
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.
