What to expect
  • Day 1: Leave London and travel west to the rolling hills of the Cotswolds through England’s prettiest historic villages. Get the best photos and hear the most fascinating local tales. Travel through the Welsh Marches marked out by the ancient Offa’s Dyke. Head into the heart of the Cambrian Mountains and beautiful Elan Valley. Finally, head to the beautiful seaside town and cultural center of Aberystwyth, where you spend the next two nights. Day 2: Travel to the mountainous region of Snowdonia National Park. Visit the mountain village of Beddgelert to see the famous grave of Gelert, the legendary dog, or explore the nearby copper mine. Next, head to the town of Machynlleth to see the ancient clock tower and the quaint houses, and go antique hunting. Move on to Porthmadog and over the Cob causeway before reaching the impenetrable medieval Harlech Castle. After a fulfilling day, return to Aberystwyth in the late afternoon. Day 3: Travel around the coast of Cardigan Bay through Aberaeron to New Quay. Explore the picturesque harbor and get the chance to spot dolphins and whales. Head into the foreboding Black Mountains to explore a bedrock cave under a castle, before you visit Laugharne, where Dylan Thomas wrote the famous play Under Milk Wood. Move on to Tenby, a charming seaside town and your base for two nights. Day 4: See some of Britain’s most gorgeous coastlines at the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Travel to the tiny cathedral city of St Davids for lunch and exploration, and stop in the county town of Pembroke to enter the thick medieval walls of the castle. From here, return to Tenby for a relaxed evening. Day 5: Leaving Tenby in the morning, begin your return journey to London. Head past the industrial cities of South Wales to the outskirts of Cardiff, and visit the outdoor National History Museum. Stop at the well-preserved Roman Fortress at Caerleon. Take the Severn Bridge back into England, and take a break at Castle Combe, a Cotswold village perfect for a relaxed stroll amongst 16th-century ironstone cottages.

Nature always leaves one spell bound...but the tour guide Russell helped the small group in having a more wholistic experience...from folklore to history to interesting poems...
There was sensitivity and a good camaraderie that was shared...and like its said...uts the journey over the destination..
The places get introduced to the group...before arrival....with anecdotes, poems and interesting history facts...
You may not know Dylan Thomas...but by the time you arrive to his town...you seemed to have walked a few steps with the poet...
I am generally a solo trip person.....but I have come to appreciate the small group tours....it makes the trip lot more better.
Rabbies trip to Wales was amazing!
Top few favorites
St Davids Cathedral (one is never too prepared to see the magnificient and huge structure)
Laugharne(I liked it more cause of Russells story telling)
Snowdonia(ofcourse)
Welsh people (so warm)
Our stops at Cotswold before Wales

Five wonderful days touring all things Welsh. The tour bus was luxurious, the arranged accommodations were charming and most importantly, the guide and driver, Rob, clearly loved sharing his knowledge of Wales. Rob was always patient, caring and interested that his tourists were enjoying themselves. I have been on many tours in this world and Rabbie’s is one of the best I have experienced. Thank you Rob and thank you Rabbie’s. Check it out: rabbies.com

Visiting Wales has been on my bucket list for at least a decade and I'm so glad I was finally able to take this trip with Rabbies. Rob's enthusiasm and love for Wales came through in every aspect of the tour from teaching us a few words in Welsh to finding wonderful little historic places and letting us take advantage of once in a lifetime experiences like hearing a Welsh men's choir in the ancient St. David's Cathedral. I've taken lots of trips with Rabbies over the years and they never disappoint. Thank you Rob for a memorable adventure!

Had a wonderful 5-day trip to Wales from London. Rob was a great tour guide and took us to all the planned spots and many bonus spots too! He was so kind to answer all my questions, and educated about each place we visited throughout the tour. On the way, we also learned about Welsh culture, food and music as he played some most popular Welsh songs on the journey.

The itinerary was well rounded covering offbeat locations, castles with rich history and scenic view points. Rob was a knowledgeable guide and knew the terrain well. He was kind enough to answer our questions in a detailed way and patiently accommodated our requests into the daily itinerary. His anecdotes were fun and piqued our curiosity to know more about the rich history of Wales. I would highly recommend the tour.
