Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

There’s an old Welsh saying; “the best shortage is a shortage of words”.

And we can understand why.

Because when you travel through Snowdonia, the beautiful mountains leave you speechless. The Welsh castles’ battle-torn passageways are simply indescribable. And a lot of the destinations are as unpronounceable as they’re unbelievable.

So, on this trip, we let you discover the elusive beauty of Wales.

You enjoy the poetic landscapes and harbour towns that inspired Dylan Thomas, you venture through the inexpressibly beautiful valleys of two of Wales’ famous national parks, and you take in the history of Chester, an English town that sits by the border.

Let the sights speak for themselves and join our tour of North Wales and Chester.

If you want to visit many castles, this is the tour. Darren, our tour guide, had an impressive knowledge of the country and the sites. And the sheep...wow, they are everywhere. A caution for those with limited mobility - there were great distances to walk from the drop off point to the main attractions in some towns, often up steep inclines and cobbled streets, making it hard for those with limited mobility. We called a cab a few times to get back to the van on time.

Whoops, looks like something went wrong.
