Return to Cardiff

I really liked how this trip was split between the history of Wales and the natural beauty of the country. Our guide was so friendly and helpful.
We had a wonderful trip with a knowledgeable guide… we had free time to walk part of the peninsula and enjoy the surroundings. This company were very professional. I would highly recommend them.
We were all very impressed with how much we packed into the day… excellent value for money. The company were very accommodating and easy to deal with.
