Full description

The tour leaves Manchester in the morning and heads straight for the border of Wales. Conwy is the first stop of the day, one of the most picture-perfect harbor towns in the world.

Here you can see a castle perched by the sea, the world's smallest house, and lots of cute restaurants serving up the best fish and chips. Venture along the winding, scenic roads of the Snowdonia National Park before arriving in Betws-Y-Coed. This quaint town is known as the gateway to Snowdonia and is famous for its alpine trees and cozy cafes. Chester is your next stop. This is one of England’s most historic towns and there is plenty to do here. It's advised to go straight to the ancient cathedral and learn about its remarkable past.

Loved the trip! Clive was superb and listening to the stories while going around the mountain terrains was worth an experience. I was traveling with senior citizens, had no issues at all! Wish we could spend some more time in Wales and get a photo opportunity of Snowdon. Me being a photographer was sad to not being able to capture the highest mountain of Wales.

Our guide Clive picked us up in Manchester on time and started with us in the direction of Wales. He told us a lot about the country and people and history. Before the individual stops, he gave tips on what we can do, and there were also some great photo stops in the Snowdonia National Park. Highly Recommended!!

One of my best country side road trips. Beautiful scenery and history these sites have to offer. Darren made it even more exciting, loved the way he handled this whole trip, being patient with us tourists. Loved the way he gives us an overview of the trip and later recaps the journey on way back. If I was here longer would sign on for more such experiences.
