It was a great experience. So cool and relaxing…the picturesque villages like Conwy, Beddgelert and Betws y Coed and the breathtaking landscapes. Don’t miss the optional… it’s worth seeing the place. The driver - Darren gave us a lot of information all throughout the 3 day tour started from Manchester, to Snowdonia and North Wales and brought us safe to all the places. The Mercedes Benz mini van was comfortable. The tour was operated by Rabbies. Highly recommended .

A fun day out with plenty to do and a lot of interesting stops. Frank provided many good laughs and I would definitely consider going to more events from the same company again.

There was some confusion as to the meeting place but it was swiftly fixed and our tour guide could not have been better.
