Went above and beyond to accommodate us… we had a very knowledgeable driver who was extremely patient and kind-hearted. The highlight of the trip was the bridge… the Roman ruins were impressive, including the Roman bath.

Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable… he struck a good balance between providing information about the location and giving us time to wander about. We would definitely book with Roam Wales again.
