It was a great tour, we saw many sites and Gareth was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would suggest this tour to anyone wanting to make a day of viewing some of the more lovely sites in South Wales.

I absolute enjoyed this tour, well paced trip visiting all these beautiful castles and stunning landscapes of Wales; Gareth was punctual, very knowledgeable, generous (he gave us lovely Welsh pasties!), giving us plenty of time to explore around; very safe, masks on and sanitiser all the way! I had an amazing day and looking forward to do more day trips with him! Thank you very much for such a lovely time!

Great beaches, food, rubgy drama, and conversation

Gareth was very communicative and punctual and the process was very smooth. I liked that he gave us some specialty pastry at the start of the trip. He is the man to talk to if you want to understand the history and contemporary issues of South Wales. There was a 2 hour window for us to do whatever the heck we liked in the Mumbles, and by fantastic coincidence the big rugby game was on in all the bars. The walk to the falls goes over muddy ground, so do not come with your fanciest shoes. I suggest the online listings (TripAdvisor and Viator) to be updated so that only the destinations near Swansea are included, not the ones in South-East Wales.

I had a fabulous time touring the castles in Wales. Gareth took us to some beautiful places including Chepstow Castle and Tintern Abbey. He gave us ample time to walk around and explore. I loved it and would book another trip within him again.
